The ±6000 puts to work a 24.3MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and a Bionz X processor to rapidly autofocus. Other noteworthy stats include burst shooting at 11 frames per second and a wide ISO range of ISO 100 - 25,600.

Sony has been upgrading the connectivity features across all of its products and the ±6000 is no exception. It will use NFC technology to easily pair with Xperia smartphones and Wi-Fi for the transferring of photos. It remains unclear at this stage if this feature will support other NFC-capable Android smartphones.

The ±6000 manages to offer plenty in terms of function and accessibility. There are two control dials for quick access and seven programmable buttons. It also has a 3in, 922k adjustable LCD screen, and an electronic 1,444k dot OLED viewfinder.

The new interchangeable camera will be coming to Australia in April. A single lens kit has a recommended retail price of $1199.
