Sony A6000 sensor review 2019


Sony A6000 sensor review 2019, Sony's re-branding of the APS-C NEX mirrorless model as the Alpha presents an opportunity to reinvent the range.

 Although the new A6000, announced in February this year, still technically features a 24-Mpix CMOS similar to the NEX-7, it is seen as a replacement for the new NEX-6.

Like that model, it has dedicated on-chip phase-detection AF pixels (in addition to normal contrast detection), although the A6000 can cover a large area of ​​179 AF points, up to 50 percent of the frame on the NEX-6 is. Just over 90 percent.

The Exmor Type 24-Mpix APS-C CMOS sensor is an evolution of the device using a similar gapless micro-lens structure to the NEX-7 found on the 36-Mpix full-frame sensor used by the full-frame A7R is. .

The latest Bionz X level processor allows AF to continuously shoot at 11 fps and ISO sensitivity up to ISO 25 or up to 12,800 ISO 25,600.

Like the NEX-6 and 7, it has a 1.39M dot OLED screen with a 0.39-inch lower resolution (below the 2.36M dot on the NEX-6) and a 3.0-inch 16: 9 ratio,

 921k-built-in EVF. Dot tilting LCD on the rear. Images can be captured and shared using on-board WiFi with NFC capability.

Some minor improvements to its predecessor include adding zebra-pattern display capability to aid exposure control, and an uncompressed 1080i / p AVCHD video at 24- 50/60 fps via HDMI, in addition to the camera's capture option in general. Includes linking to.

The Sony Alpha A6000 is available for only $ 649 in black or black titanium 'finish with body or around $ 799 with standard 16-50mm kit lens.

Sony A6000 sensor Sony A6000: High Sensor Performance

With a DxOMark score of 82 points, the Sony A6000 sensor has very high performance, and is comparable to the best-performing APS-C sensor found on rival DSLRs.

It ranks 24th overall, yet it is still some way behind the full-frame sensor. For example, 24-Mpix CMOS devices in the firm's SLT A99 and A7 achieve a DxOMark sensor score of 90 points.

Full frame sensors still have an edge in color discrimination, dynamic range, and low light capabilities, but the A6000 sensor performs well overall.

The A6000 sensor is ranked 24th and is ranked fifth on Sony cameras in our database.

Sony A6000 vs Sony NEX-6 vs Sony NEX-7: incremental improvements

The pitch against its predecessor 16-Mpix NEX-6 and yet to replace the 24-Mpix NEX-7 has some incremental improvements to the performance of the new sensor.

The color depth and dynamic range are close between the three - a slight improvement in color sensitivity on the NEX-6 and a slight drop based on DR against the NEX-7 (however,

 DR is improved to higher ISOs on newer models) and There is a slight improvement in low-light performance around +1/3 of the stop.

Although there is a slightly higher DR based on the NEX-7, it improves slightly at higher ISOs on the A6000

When compared with similar high-end rivals Panasonic and Olympus, the A6000 with a physically smaller sensor has a +2/3 stop gain in sensor performance. It has +2/3 stops better color discrimination at the base ISO but only +1/3 stops wider dynamic range.

 However, the A6000 has an advantage of about + 1-stop in low light over the OMD-EM1 and only +2/3 stops on the new Panasonic Lumix GH-4.

While there are some minor advantages in color and DR, arguably the most significant gain in low light (noise) performance.

Sony A6000 sensor The conclusion

Sony's re-alignment of the range with the new A6000 offers much better-performing sensors than the NEX-7, a tricky development of the NEX-6 body.

When comparing, it is always worth looking at the capabilities of the camera as a whole - for the beginner the low resolution of the viewfinder is somewhat disappointing.

Based on sensor performance alone, the A6000 appears to be excellent value for money at $ 649 (body only).

 While we still assess image quality with native mount lenses, the Sony A6000 certainly looks like a promising addition to the range.
