The Sony Alpha a6100 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only) is an APS-C-format mirrorless camera that is suitable for both still & video applications.
Sensor & Screen:
The Alpha a6100 features an APS-C format 24.2 megapixel sensor, which provides smooth & high-quality images, with minimal noise & high sensitivity (from ISO 100-32000). The ISO range can be further expanded to ISO 51200 for shooting in low-light conditions, & features front-end LSI for boosting light-gathering capabilities. This feature also reduces noise, & increases readout speeds to benefit video recording. The sensor, combined with the a6100's BIONZ X processor, provides a high continuous shooting rate of 11 fps, with AF & AE, and permits 14-bit RAW file output to provide a wide tonal & color scale.
The Alpha a6100 also features a 3.0" (921.6k-dot) LCD touchscreen, which can be tilted 180º upward or 74º downward, to accommodate working from higher & lower angles. The monitor also features "White Magic" technology, with RGBW pixel structure to provide increased brightness for shooting in daylight conditions. The monitor's touchscreen design enables Touch Focus control, which allows for immediate focus point selection via the screen while looking through the viewfinder.
Image & Video:
The Alpha a6100 features a powerful 4D Focus System, which covers nearly the entire sensor area, & incorporates 425 on-chip phase detection points, as well as 425 contrast-detection areas to allow for precise focusing, in as fast as 0.02 seconds. Its hybrid AF system enables high-density Tracking AF technology, which is able to track moving subjects in a variety of lighting conditions. Its real-time Eye AF is capable of focusing on your subject's eyes, whether it is human or animal, & is available in AF-S & AF-C modes. Its Lock-on AF maintains focus on moving subjects, & the camera also features a Peaking Manual Focus function to assist with manual focus control for acquiring sharp focus.
For high-resolution recording, the a1600 features internal recording of UHD 4K movies, in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps. Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps, & utilizes the 100Mbps XAVC S format, contained within an MP4 wrapper, with 4:2:0 sampling. The 120 fps recording enables 4x & 5x slow motion movie recording, with the frame rate set to either 24p or 30p. An uncompressed HDMI output enables the ability to use an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording, with 4:2:2 sampling. 4K video recording also provides the ability to produce 8 megapixel stills during playback, through grabbing a frame from your movie, & storing it as a separate file.
NP-FW50 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery (Included) for 420 Shots Per Charge
Integrated 3.5mm Microphone Port (Provides Greater Control During Video Recording)
a6100 Can Also Be Powered via USB Connection to Battery/Computer
Built-In Wi-Fi for Instant Sharing & Direct Sharing to Social Media, Email, & Cloud Storage
The types of files that a particular camera produces. All cameras output JPEG images, but some of the more sophisticated models will shoot in RAW mode. RAW Image Formats will vary based on manufacturer.
Refers to the actual physical size of the imaging sensor in the camera. A sensor that has the same dimensions as a 35mm frame of film is considered to be "full" frame. Other smaller sensor sizes are described in terms relative to a "full" sized sensor. (e.g. an APS-C 1.5x crop sensor)
