First Look: Check out the Sony A6000, the latest addition to Sony's interchangeable lens compact range

1:27 /

The Sony A6000 is the latest addition to Sony's range of interchangeable lens compact cameras, boasting a 24.3-megapixel sensor, lightning-fast autofocus and the latest Sony image processors. Hit play to check out our hands-on video.

I'm Andrew Hall for CNET, and I'm here taking a look at the Sony Alpha 6000. It's the latest edition to Sony's popular range of interchangeable lens compact cameras. It replaces the older NEX-6 camera sitting in the middle of the range for those of you wanting to take your photography just a little bit more seriously. It's physically fairly small. You definitely won't be able to get it into your jeans, but you won't struggle to get it into a bag. It's got a host of dials and wheels on the outside giving DSLR-like manual control. And the back as well, you see, you've got a tiltable LCD, there's an OLED viewfinder, and we got a hotshoe on top for you to put on a flash if the built-in flash doesn't quite do the job. The heart of the camera is a 24.3-megapixel Exmor-R sensor backed up by Sony's latest Bionz X processor. Now Sony reckons that it gives more detailed shots with lower image noise. Sony also claims it has a lightning fast autofocus, so hopefully, you won't miss any crucial moments. Like most of Sony's range of cameras, it also has NFC pairing, Wi-Fi, and access to Sony's PlayMemories app letting you do things like time lapse photography and adding various image effects. If you're after a portable camera to help take your holiday snaps to the next level, the a6000 could be a good option to consider when it goes on sale in March. I'm Andrew Hall for CNET and this is the Sony Alpha 6000.
