Not sure if its better than my NEX 5

daniel colella, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I have an NEX 5 as well - I thought this would be a big improvement. Its harder to use without the touch screen. And at night time - auto mode it really is not good. It reduces the shutter time to try and let more light it so all your night shots look blurry unless you are in manual mode and adjust them yourself. I know most people will be doing manual adjustments.

Love the camera --- the s/w not so much

Rogue Photo Dude, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I love the size and the quality photos of this camera. Along these lines it was exactly what I was looking for. I would like to see a better lens selection, which seems to be one of the issues with Sony. The other issue is the software apps which are tedious and sometimes difficult to set up.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Small / Compact

a6000 vs RX100 Comparison - Bigger Isn't Better

Thomas D. Kehoe, Amazon
24 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had a Sony RX100 for 2.5 years (first generation). I bought an a6000 a month ago. The picture quality is almost identical, when using the kit lens (16-50mm) on the a6000. The a6000 has a better sensor but the RX100 has a better lens. If you don't have the budget for prime lenses the a6000 won't take better pictures than a good point-and-shoot. To put this another way, cameras get better and smaller and cheaper every year. Lenses don't.

I actually did not like the images being produced

k, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: I actually did not like the images being produced. I had purchased this because I didn't want the size of a dSLR but wanted better quality images than a travel zoom. I thought this would be the nice medium. It is a beautiful camera and has a modern style with a retro look. The images really weren't much better than those I have gotten from my old Olympus XZ-1.

The Ying and Yang of it!

Photosmyth, B&H Photo
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: First off when I went to the support website everytime I clicked on download it would return to the same page, So I don't have the software or firmware updrades, and the manuel was a short version instruction manuel of 48 pages. I found the Sony English website had a larger 209 page manuel un available on Sony USA. I like the camera, but it didn't come with a shoe cover that I thought was tacky.
  • Pros: Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Short Battery Life

Decent upgrade, but some disappointments for video

nsr "Photo Hobbyist", Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: Initially Canon SLR user, in trying to find small DSLR alternatives experimented with several Panasonic, Olympus and Sony NEX series. Not sure my search ended with Sony A6000 yet though(This is my 3rd Sony E mount camera). Main improvements are: Considerable improvement in Auto-focus: Generally fast focus in good light, and little slower but correct focus in low-light instead of dreaded dotted rectangle on previous NEX series.Face detection works in all modes, and...
