We are all amateur photographers in one way or another. Pulling out a smartphone to capture a delicious dish or a stunning sunset. Some choose to arrange photo subjects (a pile of gadgets) to get just the right shot.
Once you have your fave filters down and want to take your photo skills to the next level, Sony’s Alpha 6000 mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera is where it’s at.
The a6000 is available in black or silver and is known as the world’s fastest focusing camera. It has all the quality in half the size and weight of other DSLRs. With 24MP and the included 16-50mm E-mount lens, the a6000 produces stunning photos that you can instantly share via smartphone with Wi-Fi® and NFC. With NFC (near field communication) techcology, you can simply tap the camera to an NFC-enabled device, and you’re ready to shoot and share without wires or hassles. Easy, peezy.
For all those that live and die by Instagram filters, not to worry you can still enhance photos with built in effect modes, such as Pop Color, Retro Photo, Toy Camera and Watercolor, just to name a few.
The camera’s controls are easy and very intuitive with two dials on top and a rear-mounted control wheel—they allow for quick selection of shooting modes and camera settings. In addition to the Fn button, there’s seven customizable buttons, which can be assigned any of 47 functions.
