Check out the Sony A6000, the latest addition to Sony's interchangeable lens compact range
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.
