Reasons For

Sony Alpha A5000 Sony Alpha A6000
4 Reasons For
36% Lighter
The Sony Alpha A5000 is a 210g digital camera. That's 74g lighter than the Sony Alpha A6000 (284g).

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Read more Read less | Edit
60 More Battery Life
The number of battery life on the Sony Alpha A5000 is 420, but the Sony Alpha A6000 only takes 360 battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Read more Read less | Edit
$233 Cheaper
The Sony Alpha A5000 costs $233.10 less than the Sony Alpha A6000.
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
5 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Sony Alpha A6000 has a megapixels of 24.3MP, but the Sony Alpha A5000 is only a 20.1MP digital camera (4.2MP lower).

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Bigger Digital Zoom
The Sony Alpha A6000 has a digital zoom of 8x, whereas the Sony Alpha A5000 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (4x smaller).

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Read more Read less | Edit
35,200 Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Sony Alpha A6000 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Sony Alpha A5000 is only a 16,000 maximum ISO speed digital camera (35,200 lower).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Read more Read less | Edit
460,800 Pixels Higher Display Resolution
The Sony Alpha A6000 has a display resolution of 921,600 pixels, however the Sony Alpha A5000 is only a 460,800 pixels display resolution digital camera (460,800 pixels lower).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.
