The Sony a6100 is a crop sensor E mount camera that offers 425 AF points, 11 FPS shooting speeds, 4K recording, and a 24MP sensor. Its key benefits are unlimited recording (limited only by battery/card), a revised sensor supporting an expanded ISO, and enhanced circuit processing that specifically benefits low-light video recording. Here are some of the other high-level performance features of this innovative little camera:

Ultra Fast Autofocus, Shooting Speed, and Tracking

With continuous AF shooting up to 11 frames per second, the a6100 is a great choice for fast-moving subjects, from major sporting events to casual family events. Get up to 33 frames fired in raw in one continuous burst (up to 77 in JPEG mode). Shoot silently up to 8 FPS, which is a great feature for covering performances. Track your subject with an enhanced Real-Time Eye AF function that reliably recognizes human faces and focuses on your subject's eye (manually choose which eye or let the camera decide for you). In continuous mode, Real-Time Eye AF will track your subject's eye even as they move around or look down. The outstanding accuracy of this feature is a huge benefit to portrait shooters. It's made possible thanks to Sony's processing and sensor technology, which deliver high-precision AF points that cover a much wider field than many conventional DSLRs.

Similar to Real-Time Eye AF, which is suited for portraiture, Real-Time Tracking AF is the perfect tool for capturing sports and wildlife. It keeps your subject in perfect focus so that you don't miss a single dramatic moment out on the field. A recently-developed algorithm can process spatial information based on a range of visual cues: color, distance, brightness, and facial recognition. All of this allows the a6100 to perform seamless tracking of an athlete or animal. Touch Tracking and Touch Focus allow you to select your subject via the LCD screen for both photography and videography.

Boosted Light Collection Sensor Capabilities

The 24.2 megapixel sensor features better circuit processing to increase light collection efficiency, not only making the a6100 easy to use in low light but also allows for a more natural depiction of textures. Noise reduction is also improved for much cleaner imagery at the highest ISO ranges. Color reproduction has also been reworked for much more life-like skin tones and foliage coloring. Portraits and landscapes now look much more natural, crisp, and clear.

Pro-Level 4K Functions

The a6100 is equipped to deliver high-resolution 4K video as well as slow motion in 1080p up to 120 FPS. The sensor captures at the Super 35mm size and sports Fast Hybrid AF for smooth, steady focus while recording. Capture professional sound with the 3.5mm microphone jack or flip the screen up 180° to not only more easily frame vlogging-style shots but also control a variety of functions while in front of the camera. It has 8 areas of customization for up to 89 specific shooting functions that are designed to give you full creative control.

At only 2.34" deep, under 5" wide, and under 1 lb, the a6100 is the ideal travel camera that doesn't sacrifice pro-level settings and features. It is also a great choice for candids, events, and vlogging.

Special Note: The a6100, despite the name, is actually newer than the a6300, a6400, and a6500 cameras. It is a contemporary of the a6600.
