Design

1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.screen resolution

921k dots

921.6k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
3.EVF resolution

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony A6000)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a6100)

An electronic viewfinder (EVF) with a higher resolution provides a sharper image, producing a view comparable in quality with the one displayed on an optical viewfinder.
4.Has a built-in focus motor
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
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.Has a flip-out screen
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
6.has an optical viewfinder
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
7.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display which shows the framed image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image; they can be more compact; it's easier to focus with digital zoom; and they sometimes offer extra info on the display (such as a live histogram).
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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

Optics

1.sensor size

APS-C

APS-C

One of the most important aspects of a camera is the size of its sensor. A larger sensor will capture more light, which results in improved low-light performance, dynamic range, and general image quality.
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.
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.
4.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

51200 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.
5.has sensor shift stabilization
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
7.has AF tracking
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
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.
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

2160 x 30fps

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.
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
5.movie bitrate

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony A6000)

100Mbps

The higher the movie recording bitrate the better the movie quality with more and crispier details and less compression artifacts.
6.has a 24p cinema mode
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
7.supports slow-motion video recording
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Depending on camera capabilities, frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
2.has a stereo microphone
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
3.number of microphones

1

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a6100)

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

420shots

420shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.battery power

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony A6000)

1080mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

Features

1.noise

1347 ISO

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a6100)

The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
3.image quality

82

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a6100)

A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
4.color depth

24.1bits

14bits

The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
5.dynamic range

13.1Evs

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sony a6100)

The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
6.Has dual card slots
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
7.shoots raw
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.
8.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
9.supports lossless compressed raw
Sony A6000
Sony a6100
It is capable of shooting stills in a lossless compressed raw format. This has all the advantages of shooting raw, while taking up much less storage space. The smaller file size also allows quicker read/write speeds.
