Cheap alternatives for Sony A6000



1280 x 720px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density


Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.Has a flip-out screen
Sony A6000
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
4.Has a built-in focus motor
Sony A6000
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
5.viewfinder coverage


With 100% coverage, you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage, you may have to crop your photos afterward to get them looking perfect.
6.Has a hot shoe
Sony A6000
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.


1.focus points


The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
2.sensor size

23.5 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.has AF tracking
Sony A6000
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
4.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Sony A6000
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
5.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
6.megapixels (main camera)


The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.


1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
