Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The Sony Alpha A6000 supports Full HD video, as do most of the other similar spec cameras that came out in the last year.

We compared all the other digital cameras which support Full HD video to this camera and we think the Canon Rebel T5i (£379) which has better reviews; or the Canon EOS 750D - Rebel T6i (£475) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

It is worth considering other cameras which also support Full HD video including the Canon EOS M3 (£308.13).

1920 X 1080 Pixels Video Resolution

The highest video resolution supported by the Alpha A6000 is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

This digital camera also support a video resolutions of 640 x 480 pixels and 1440 x 1080 pixels. A video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels is equivalent to Full HD video. You will require a Full HD TV or better to appreciate this level of detail. Across all high megapixel cameras that are a comparable age to this camera the best video resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixels and the worst is 640 x 424 pixels.

With a display diagonal of 3 inches, the Sony Alpha A6000 has a relatively typical display diagonal compared to most of the other latest high megapixel cameras.

If this camera display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the D5600 (3.2" and higher rated), the D5600 (3.2" and higher rated), or the [pl_4259457] (3.2" and higher rated) all from Nikon.
