DxO tests the A6000 and calls it “Little wonder”. Ships tomorrow in USA!


DxOmark (Click here) just published the A6000 sensor test results. As you know the A6000 has phase detection pixel across the full sensor but despite that it manages to match the best APS-C sensor on market to date. So you have both, top image quality and top autofocus performance on a small mirrorless camera. can’t get any better than this! Oh yes it can….the camera will ship tomorrow in USA :)

This is what DxO writes about the A6000:

Based on sensor performance alone, at $649 (body only) the A6000 appears to be excellent value for money. And while we’ve yet to assess image quality with native mount lenses, the Sony A6000 certainly looks like a promising addition to the range.

SAR reader Michael and Joseelin sent me the links to some A6000 video tests:
Just been surfing and found some new a6000 youtube videos that you – and your readers – might like to see. First one – sadly – shows that the a6000 struggles somewhat in low light and there are other videos out there to suggest the same: the a6000 is not quite on par with the fastest micro 4/3s from Panasonic (probably it´s another story in good light). Anyway, it´s not slow either. Video 1:
or, maybe, as indicated in this first australian review from The Australian (newspaper), it simply has a focusing problem when you go rapidly from near to far and vice versa (he wrote a piece on it as well in his written review, you can find it on the web). Video 2:
and finally a good test with fast moving object approaching the camera: 5-6 missed shots out of more than 20 – that´s not bad. And as other reviews has underlined it seems that the a6000 is very good at getting focus back after losing is. And video just seems great. Video 3
and a pretty impressive low light video (notice that af doesn´t even get distracted when people passes in front of the lens). Video 4:
