Alpha 6100 comes with a 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS image Sensor, implemented with the latest BIONZ X image processor.
The camera’s APS-C size, 24.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor provides a wide sensitivity range and excellent low-noise performance. In conjunction with the latest-generation BIONZ X image processing engine, it delivers beautiful, high-resolution images with superior image clarity and texture reproduction.
Unparalleled AF performance for breath-taking 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-second13 acquisition speed, while High-density AF Tracking Technology reliably follows even erratically moving subjects.
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
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
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 shots15.
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 77frames. 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.
4K movie recording in high-bit-rate XAVC S format
Super 35 mm 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 100 Mbps for 4K 30p/24p) XAVC S video codec ensures professional-quality images in a consumer-friendly format.
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.
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 upwards a full 180° and downwards by 74° for easy framing of vlogs and selfies and more convenient low-angle and high-angle shooting.
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 PC24. A simple variable-speed preview function allows you to see images on the camera showing how the finished movie will look.
External mic input for high-quality audio
The α6100 is equipped with an external microphone jack, giving you greater options for audio, to suit serious movie shooting and high-quality vlogging.
Convenient Touch Tracking and Touch Focus features
Once you have set Touch Tracking in the menu you can select your subject simply by touching the monitor. Whether you’re taking stills or movies, the camera will begin auto-tracking. The Touch Focus feature is also simple to use—just touch the appropriate point on the monitor to set the focus.
