Sony a6000 release date

The pre-production sample already made, I guess the new Sony a6000 soon will be released.

Sony a6000 vs Sony Nex6

Seems the Nex word is disappeared from the name, Sony will call this cameras Alpha from now on. The biggest improvement over the earlier model the Sony Nex6, is the new hybrid Autofocus system which is claimed to be the fastest in the world with 179 phase detect and 25 contrast detect points. The sensor is also new, a 24Mpixel unit. At the same time Sony will release a new Sony a5000 model as well with little cropped specs (No viewfinder, smaller resolution Lcd, and sensor etc). The only thing where the previous Nex6 is better is the viewfinder, because the Nex6 viewfinder is bigger and has better resolution.

The new Sony a6000 camera has a 11fps continuous shooting ability which pretty good in absolut terms too. The iso range is between iso 100-25,600 which is also very good. The new Sonya6000 has an Aps-C sized Sony sensor and used Bionz image processing engine. The new Sony a6000 is also very capable in video recording.

Sony alpha A6000 functions

The new Af system seems to be useful in moving subject tracking, and the camera has area-specific noise reduction and diffraction reduction as well, which supposed to correct softness caused by diffraction in smaller apertures.
