EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Alpha 6100 includes a 24.2MP Exmor™ CMOS image sensor, the latest BIONZ X™ image processor and a front-end LSI implemented in Sony’s full-frame cameras. This powerful trio combine to deliver all-round enhancements in image quality and performance across all areas of photo and video capture.
The Alpha 6100 offers a lightning fast autofocus acquisition time of 0.02 seconds . With 425 focal-plane phase-detection autofocus (AF) points covering approximately 84% of the image area and 425 contrast-detection AF points, the high density and wide coverage of the AF system ensure reliable AF, even in the most challenging light conditions. The camera benefits from Sony’s ‘Real-time Tracking’ which utilizes Sony’s latest algorithm including Artificial Intelligence -based object recognition to ensure that subjects can be captured with excellent accuracy, even via the touch panel on the rear screen. In addition, the camera offers ‘Real-time Eye AF’, the latest version of Sony’s acclaimed Eye AF technology, which employs AI-based object recognition to detect and process eye data in real time, resulting in improved accuracy, speed and tracking performance of Eye AF for both humans and animals , and allows the photographer to concentrate exclusively on composition. The Alpha 6600 also offers Real Time Eye AF in video. When activated, the eye of a subject is automatically tracked with high precision and reliability, allowing the shooter to focus on the content itself as opposed to what is in focus or not.
Additionally, the Alpha 6100 can shoot high quality 4K video, and includes a microphone jack and flip screen that allows for easy framing and shooting of vlog-style content.
