Frequently Asked Questions
Does it support the Arabic language?
Sony A6000 doesn't support Arabic language.
Can the af keep up with a fast moving child? Does the AF perform well in low light? How high of ISO would you feel comfortable pushing?
Very fast autofocus. I have had no problems with the AF in low light. The iso limit probably depends on how fast your lens is, at f2.8 I think you would be fine with 6400 ISO. It also has a nice ISO noise reducing function.
Is the a6000 compact enough (i.e. pocketable) to carry around with me all the time as an alternative to my Nikon D800?
The A6000 is smaller than most DSLRs as far as depth but wider than say the Canon SL1. The A6000 is a lot larger than some of the micro four thirds and compact cameras. For a carryaround option to your D800, you might consider the new Panasonic GM1 or the Olympus EPM2, which are both micro four thirds cameras with small kit lenses. Whether they're pocketable depends on whether you're talking about a pants or jacket pocket.
