Here we are comparing the Sony A7c with the Sony A6000, mirrorless cameras. The Sony Alpha A7c is a camera in the Advanced Mirrorless class, whereas the Sony Alpha a6000 is in the Entry-Level Mirrorless class.
The Sony A7c is scheduled to hit the market in September 2020, while the Sony A6000 will be available in April 2014. In this comparison, you can see that A6000 is six years older than A7c. So let’s see if the age difference between the two cameras significantly impacts their performance.
The Sony a7C and Sony a6000 are both Sony cameras, but they are designed for different purposes. Here’s a detailed comparison:
Image sensor: The a7C has a full-frame image sensor (24.2 megapixels), while the a6000 has an APS-C image sensor (24.3 megapixels). The a7C has a much larger image sensor compared to the a6000, which provides better image quality and low-light performance.
Autofocus: Both cameras have sound autofocus systems, but the a7C has a more advanced autofocus system that includes real-time Eye AF and Real-time Tracking, which are optimized for still photography. The a6000 has a sound autofocus system but is optimized for general photography.
Video recording: The a7C can record 4K video, while the a6000 can record 1080p video. The a7C has better video features, such as full-pixel readout and better image stabilization, than the a6000.
Ergonomics: The a7C has a compact design that balances portability and handling, while the a6000 has a more traditional design that provides a comfortable grip and more controls.
Price: The a6000 is generally less expensive than the a7C.
Battery life: The a7C has a longer battery life compared to the a6000, which makes it more suitable for extended shooting sessions.

The camera’s advantages are the bigger sensor in the Alpha A7C, faster and more accurate autofocus, and higher sensitivity. We particularly appreciate the improved viewfinder, the optical image stabilizer, and the touch screen, which is rather pleasant to use.
Because of the excellent video recording, the ability to connect an external microphone, and the longer battery life of the Alpha A7C, it is simple to suggest this camera. Another benefit of the Alpha A6000 over the Alpha A6000 is the compatibility with USB 3.0, which seems like a luxury, given the size of today’s images and the requirements of 4K video.
In conclusion, the Sony a7C and Sony a6000 are good cameras, but the choice of them depends on your specific needs. For example, if you’re looking for a compact and versatile full-frame camera that can handle both photography and videography applications, the a7C might be the better choice. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a general purpose camera that is more budget-friendly and has a smaller form factor, the a6000 might be the better choice.
