Sony pushes the limits of mirrorless innovation with the world’s fastest AF performance

ILCE-6000_wSELP1650_right_black-1200Sony’s new, mirrorless α6000 boasts the world’s fastest AF performance1 at just 0.06 seconds, a high-resolution 24.3 MP image sensor and powerful BIONZ X processor. This powerful combination of features ensures that still images, full HD videos and all fleeting moments are captured in sharp focus and incredible detail.

“With the world’s fastest autofocus system1, the ability to capture a blazing 11 frames per second and a 24.3 MP sensor, the new α6000 rivals even the best DSLRs in the market today in terms of performance, and does this in half of the size and weight at an extremely attractive price point,” said Neal Manowitz, director of the alpha interchangeable lens camera division at Sony.  “It’s an ideal choice for photo enthusiasts eager to ‘go light’ and take their photography to the next level.”
