The mirrorless A6100 includes refined capabilities in a pocket size that makes it easy to get beautiful pictures almost anywhere. It’s been refined with multiple upgrades on its A6000 predecessor, including major advances in autofocus, which now includes real-time tracking and real time eye AF that works with both humans and animals. It features exceptional image quality from the large 24.2MP APS-C image sensor, fast focusing thanks to the BIONZ X processor, and interchangeable lens capability. And with a full suite of wireless connectivity built-in, you can share your favourite images with friends and family in an instant.
Full size sensor for better quality
The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized Alpha DSLRs gives this camera more detail than typical point-and-shoot cameras. APS-C sensor size delivers an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous background bokeh. With a sensor optimising light collection efficiency, the result is supremely natural textures and hues. A maximum ISO of 32000 (expandable to 51200 for stills) with improved noise suppression means sharp, clean imagery, even in dark environments.
Real time autofocus
425 focus points cover the frame for accurate tracking, with autofocus speeds of up to just 0.02sec reaction time. Shoot at up to 11fps with AF/AE, while AI-based subject tracking automatically chooses the most appropriate settings. Real-time Eye AF keeps your subject in sharp focus, and even works with animals for sharp pet portraits or more adventurous wildlife photography. You can even shoot silently at up to 8fps so you don’t disturb your subject. When shooting movies, Hybrid AF ensures tight, steady focus on moving subjects.
Fabulous 4K movies
Record superb quality movies in 4K resolution at 30p frame rate with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. You’ll achieve sharp and steady footage with rich, realistic colour and detail. A microphone socket lets you record real-time audio as you shoot too; perfect for video-logs.
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & NFC
Go anywhere, share anytime. Connect with your smart devices using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or NFC for instant sending of your work to your online channels, and Sony’s PlayMemories Apps are available to download to enhance your creativity.
16-50mm OSS Lens
The included 16-50mm lens is incredibly versatile, providing excellent wide-angle performance, or zoomed in for perfect portrait shooting. A clever retracting mechanism makes it easy to store, while Optical SteadyShot technology stabilises your snaps to help prevent unwanted blur.
Tilting touch screen & customisable control
Change your view with a tiltable LCD screen with intuitive touch control. It flips up the full 180° for vlog recording and high-quality selfies, and downward 74° so you can shoot from high and low angles for a more dynamic or tricky-to-reach perspective. Designed with ease-of use in mind, buttons, keys and the user interface are customisable so you can personalise controls to suit your own preference.
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.

Unpackaged weight of the product
- 396g (body only)
- Wi-Fi enabled
- Zoom (digital)
Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
- Zoom (optical)
Allows you to zoom the image closer to the subject. Optical zooms feature physically moving lens components, so it maintains the image quality as you zoom in. Digitial zooms essentially crop an existing image, so may lose image quality as they zoom in
