  • Features
    Unparalleled AF performance for breathtaking shots

    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.

    Real-time Tracking maintains steady focus on your subject

    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.

    Reliable Real-time Eye AF for better portrait shots

    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.

    Real-time Eye AF for animal

    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.

    High-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking

    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.

    Accurate autofocus even in dim lighting

    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.

    Versatile touch operations

    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).

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

    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.

    Easy manual focus with clearly visible peaking

    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.

    An innovative image-processing system

    An innovative image-processing system

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

    Stunning image quality, low noise and a wide ISO range

    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.

    Lifelike skin tones

    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.

    Creative Style and Picture Effect

    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.

    14-bit RAW output for rich tonal gradation

    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.

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

    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.

    Steady, precise AF tracking for better movies

    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.

    Slow and Quick motion and high-speed 120fps recording

    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.

    Sophisticated capabilities for high-quality movie-making

    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. It's also easy to extract still frames directly from your movies in playback mode.

    Support for high-quality mic and audio input

    Support for high-quality mic and audio input

    An external microphone can be attached directly via the camera's microphone jack, and you also have an option for line and 48V phantom powered input using the separately available XLR adaptor kit. This allows the connection of a wide range of high-end microphones for better audio in your movie recordings.

    Interval Shooting for time-lapse movies

    Interval Shooting for time-lapse movies

    Interval Shooting with a set interval between 1 and 60 seconds is available within the camera, and the resulting still images can be edited into a time-lapse movie on a PC. A simple variable-speed preview function allows you to see images on the camera showing how the finished movie will look.

    180°-tiltable LCD screen

    180°-tiltable LCD screen

    The 3.0-type LCD monitor offers 921k-dot resolution for a clear view of what you're shooting. It's designed to tilt upward a full 180° and downward by 74° for easy framing of vlogs and selfies and more convenient low-angle and high-angle shooting.

    Square aspect ratio tailored for social media

    Square aspect ratio tailored for social media

    In addition to 3:2 and 16:9 aspect (width-to-height) ratios, you can also select a 1:1 aspect ratio – ideal for sharing images on social media platforms. This means that you no longer need to hand-trim your images after shooting when you're planning to post them.

    Custom functions for smoother operation

    Custom functions for smoother operation

    Up to eight of the camera's keys and controls can be custom-assigned to any of 89 shooting and replay functions. The My Menu feature allows flexible assignment of 30 menu items, and the custom settings screen helps keep track of everything. Helpful guides for menu items are also available with a single button press on the menu screen.

    Still-image ratings and deletion protection

    Still-image ratings and deletion protection

    During playback mode, still images can be given ratings and protected from deletion. Both these functions can be accessed via pre-assigned custom keys.

    Simple control over white-balance settings

    Custom setting of white balance is simple to adjust, and you can select an AWB priority setting when shooting with incandescent lighting – either warmer Atmosphere Priority, or White Priority for purer whites.

    Versatile flash functions

    When shooting with compatible wireless flash units, rear-curtain sync and slow sync can be selected – part of the camera's range of creative options for lighting.

    One-touch remote, One-touch sharing, location information

    One-touch remote, One-touch sharing, location information

    The One-touch remote feature lets you use your mobile device as a viewfinder and remote control. One-touch sharing allows you to transfer photos and videos to a mobile device for social media sharing. The camera can also use your mobile phone's location data via Bluetooth® to geo-tag your images. (These mobile device functions are available via Sony's Imaging Edge Mobile app.)

      Unparalleled AF performance for breathtaking shots

      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.

      Real-time Tracking maintains steady focus on your subject

      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.

      Reliable Real-time Eye AF for better portrait shots

      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.

      Real-time Eye AF for animal

      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.

      High-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking

      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.

      Accurate autofocus even in dim lighting

      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.

      Versatile touch operations

      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).

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

      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.

      Easy manual focus with clearly visible peaking

      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.

      An innovative image-processing system

      An innovative image-processing system

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

      Stunning image quality, low noise and a wide ISO range

      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.

      Lifelike skin tones

      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.

      Creative Style and Picture Effect

      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.

      14-bit RAW output for rich tonal gradation

      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.
