Features

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Unparalleled AF performance for breathtaking shots

Fast, accurate autofocus captures fleeting moments in stunning detail, thanks to a combination of innovative technologies. A total of 425 phase-detection AF points work in conjunction with contrast-detection AF to achieve a remarkable 0.02-sec. acquisition speed, while High-density AF Tracking Technology reliably follows even erratically moving subjects.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Real-time Tracking maintains steady focus on your subject

When you're tracking a fast-moving subject, the camera's automatic motion tracker uses an AI subject recognition algorithm that draws on colour, pattern (brightness), subject distance (depth) and face/eye information to recognise and maintain focus on your subject.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Reliable Real-time Eye AF for better portrait shots

The camera's Real-time Eye AF system detects and autofocuses on the eyes of your subjects when you half-press the shutter, and you can even prioritise your subject's left or right eye. When AF-C is set it maintains a stable focus even when the face is partially hidden or backlit, or the subject is facing downwards.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Real-time Eye AF for animal

The subject-recognition technology used in Real-time Eye AF has been adapted to support animal as well as human. When activated, it provides fast, precise, automatic detection and tracking of animals' eyes, for better pet portraits and wildlife shots.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

High-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking

Capture every instant of fast-moving action with continuous shooting at up to 11fps, or 8fps in silent-shutter mode, and for up to 77 frames. Display lag has been minimised so, even in the live-view mode, up to 8fps can be precisely captured. Continuously shot images can conveniently be displayed in groups in playback mode.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Accurate autofocus even in dim lighting

Highly accurate autofocus is possible even in dark settings, thanks to the camera's sophisticated AF algorithm. High AF sensitivity means reliable AF-S autofocus all the way down to EV -2.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Versatile touch operations

The camera's LCD panel supports intuitive touch operations such as Touch Pad (to smoothly move the focus point), Touch Focus (to set the focus point), Touch Shutter (to release the shutter), and Touch Tracking (to activate Real-Time AF).

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Focus Magnifier for finer focus adjustment in both MF/AF modes

When extra-accurate focus is called for, such as when you're taking macro shots, you can display a magnified view of the general area you want to focus on. You can then finely adjust the exact point of focus using the touchscreen or the focus point selector.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Easy manual focus with clearly visible peaking

When you're using manual focus the camera will colour-highlight the most sharply focused section of the entire image area. Selectable high contrast peaking colours include blue, red, yellow and white, giving you clear visibility of in-focus areas when you're doing the delicate focusing required for macro or portrait shooting.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

An innovative image-processing system

The camera's APS-C size, 24.2-megapixel ExmorTM CMOS sensor provides a wide sensitivity range and excellent low-noise performance. In conjunction with the latest-generation BIONZ XTM image processing engine, it delivers beautiful, high-resolution images with superior image clarity and texture reproduction.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Stunning image quality, low noise and a wide ISO range

The camera has a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-32000, expanded up to 51200 for stills. Even when you're shooting at high sensitivity in dim lighting, excellent low-noise performance ensures high-quality images. By applying noise reduction and sharpness processing selectively across the frame, Area-specific Noise Reduction and Detail Reproduction Technology contribute to fine reproduction of subject textures and shadow details.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Lifelike skin tones

The skin tone feature inherited from our latest, highly acclaimed full-frame cameras captures the natural beauty of human skin tones, helping you take portraits that look their best.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Creative Style and Picture Effect

With the camera's Creative Style feature you can choose settings like "Vivid" or "Portrait" to create a specific look for your photo, and fine-tune an image's exposure, contrast, colour saturation and sharpness. Picture Effect provides effects like "Partial Colour" and "Miniature" to add some creative flair to your shots.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

14-bit RAW output for rich tonal gradation

True 14-bit RAW images are delivered via a high-performance LSI and the BIONZ X image processor. To retain the smoothest, most natural tonal gradations, all processing occurs at 16-bit, preventing any dithering or processing errors from being introduced into the final 14-bit RAW image output. [1] Image Sensor  [2] The latest high-speed front-end LSI  [3] 16-bit Image processing

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

4K movie recording in high-bit-rate XAVC S format

Super 35mm format, 4K movie recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning allows oversampling of around 2.4x the image information needed for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). By downscaling from the equivalent of 6K resolution, captured videos benefit from even more realism and depth. The high-bit-rate (up to 100Mbps for 4K 30p/24p) XAVC S video codec ensures professional-quality images in a consumer-friendly format.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Steady, precise AF tracking for better movies

Fast Hybrid AF provides high speed, accuracy and excellent tracking performance to meet the stringent autofocus demands of 4K movies. AF tracking sensitivity can be adjusted for either stable focus or responsive refocusing, depending on the nature of the scene, and Touch Tracking lets you initiate tracking of a moving subject simply by touching the LCD screen.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Slow and Quick motion and high-speed 120fps recording

Slow motion (at up to 5x) and quick motion (at up to 60x) video can be produced in-camera, with no post-processing required, at up to Full HD resolution. Additionally, high bit-rate (up to 100Mbps) and high frame-rate (up to 120p) Full HD recordings can be used to create slow-motion movies in post-production.

Picture of α6100 APS-C camera with fast AF

Sophisticated capabilities for high-quality movie-making

The α6100 is ready for videography workflows, with clean HDMI output, variable framerates, and proxy recording. In addition, a range of functions are included to enhance movie recording accuracy, such as the display of overlay markers or gridlines, zebra exposure metering, or ISO values when shooting with ISO Auto.
