Sony a6000 vs Fujifilm x100t – Common Features
The following features are common to both the Sony a6000 and Fujifilm x100t.
1. Face Detection
Which has face detection: Sony a6000 vs Fujifilm x100t?
The Sony a6000 and the Fujifilm x100t both possess the face detection feature. In digital photography, face detection is a feature of the camera that allows it to detect human faces so that the camera can set the focus and appropriate exposure for the shot automatically. The face detection feature is also known as the face priority autofocus.
This also helps automatically remove the unwanted red-eye effect that occurs when using flash photography to capture the image of a human.
In fact, the presence of face detection is one of the reasons the Sony a6000 and Fujifilm x100t are of relevance in portrait photography.
2. Auto Exposure Bracketing
Which has the auto-exposure bracketing feature: Sony a6000 vs Fujifilm x100t?
The auto-exposure bracketing feature is common to both the Sony a6000 camera and the Fujifilm x100t. When we say auto exposure bracketing in photography, we are referring to the technique that involves the photographer taking varying shots of the same object (three shots is the standard) with a camera using exposures that slightly differ.
The camera takes several categorized shots automatically once it is set in this mode. This makes sure that the photographer does not have to manually change the camera exposure settings between each shot. By doing this, the photographer saves a lot of energy as having to change the exposure settings could be exhausting.
Bracketing is majorly used when the photographer is not sure about the right choice of exposure to use when shooting. This is a safe method that the photographer can use to get his desired image output when the lighting conditions become complex.
This feature helps to save time and battery life. It also reduces the stress of having to do an unlimited number of trials and errors. Plus, it’s also helpful in getting quality imaging in an environment where there is terrible lighting.
3. Maximum Shutter Speed
What is the maximum shutter speed of Sony a6000 and Fujifilm x100t?
The Sony a6000 camera and the Fujifilm x100t have a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 second. The 1/4000 second shutter speed rating of the two cameras is the most typical speed that users will need to successfully freeze movements and fast-moving images.
The Sony a6000 and Fujifilm x100t both have a good maximum shutter speed. In digital photography, shutter speed refers to the length of time a camera shutter is left open, exposing the camera sensor itself to light. The shutter opens naturally when the shutter button is clicked to take a picture.
The amount of light that will reach the sensor is controlled by the aperture, shutter speed. So, the faster the shutter speed, the shorter the exposure time will be. And the shorter the exposure time, the less the amount of light that enters the camera.
With the above-mentioned point, users should note that it is advisable to shoot with a shutter speed that is exactly or close to the reciprocal of the focal length of the lens. For instance, a user that wants to use a 100mm lens will have to shoot at within the range of 1/125.
When a photographer chooses to shoot at fast shutter speed, he or she must not forget to use a high ISO also. This will help to avoid having blurry pictures. The reason for this is that at high shutter speed, the light getting to the sensor is small and only a high ISO can help solve that issue.
This good shutter speed rating is a major reason why the Sony a6000 and the Fujifilm x100t are relevant in photography aspects that involve fast-moving objects such as sports, wildlife, and street photography.
4. Battery Life
How long do the Sony a6000 and the Fujifilm x100t batteries last?
The Sony a6000 has a battery life of 360 shots while the Fujifilm x100t has a battery life of 320 shots. These two battery life ratings are meager and small.

8. RAW Support
Which shoots in Raw format: Sony a6000 vs Fujifilm x100t?
The Sony a6000 and the Fujifilm x100t can both shoot in RAW format. RAW is a file format that contains all the image information captured by the camera’s sensor along with the details of the settings, camera’s identification, and lens used. These are unprocessed data that are obtained from the image sensor of a digital camera. The RAW format is unique to each camera and to each brand also. It is not like the JPEG format that is a universal file format.
One of the advantages that the RAW format has over the JPEG format is the fact that the RAW format saves the files in their original/ uncompressed form. This ensures that the image does not get degraded.
Also, a major benefit of shooting RAW is the fact you will get a clearer image when you save your files in this format. JPEG files save edited images and this limits the extent to which one can edit them. This is not the case with the RAW format.
Which uses a viewfinder: Sony a6000 vs Fujifilm x100t?
The Sony a6000 camera possesses an electronic viewfinder while the Fujifilm x100t on the other hand possesses both the optical and electronic viewfinder.
Viewfinders are the component on the camera which the photographer looks through to compose and focus his or her picture. The presence of these two viewfinders in this camera is a welcome one as it helps ensure that the viewfinder does not have any major limitation since the camera now has the power of two cameras.
The Sony a6000 camera has a NEX 6 electronic viewfinder which photographers have come to love (some are of the opinion that it is flawless). There are lesser lags when talking about this viewfinder in particular. The viewfinder also has a very good refresh rate. Another thing about this viewfinder is that there is no production of grain in the pictures even in low light.
The Fujifilm x100t on the other hand which has a dual viewfinder has a better viewfinder resolution than that of Sony, this helps provide the photographer a larger viewing area. This coupled with the fact that the camera offers the value of two is the reason why we conclude that the Fujifilm x100t has a better viewfinder.
This feature is the reason why Fujifilm x100t is the better camera in terms of portrait and street photography.

With an in-built wireless connection, the use of wires, cables, or ports for the transfer of files is not needed. The presence of this feature in this entry-level camera is a welcome one by the two companies as it shows that they are ready to embrace technological advancement.
11. External Flash Shoe
Which has an external flash shoe feature: Sony a6000 vs Fujifilm x100t?
The Sony a6000 and the Fujifilm x100t both have the external flash shoe. An external flash shoe serves as the medium through which the external flash is attached to the camera.
Cameras with the external flash feature possess a flash-to-subject that is superior to that of cameras that only possess the inbuilt flash. This quality of the external flash ensures that images located far away from the camera (within 10 meters distance) are properly lit to obtain clear pictures in a poorly lit environment.
The external flash doesn’t rely on the camera’s battery for its power. It comes with its own power source (battery). This ensures that the photographer can still achieve the standard number of shots for which the battery was made. This is not the case with an inbuilt flash.
An external flash can also cover a wider flash range which means they can be used to brighten the entire image irrespective of the type of lens you use with the camera.
External flash also has a flash head that is adjustable which gives the photographer room to get creative with shooting as this flash head tilts and changes the angle at which light is bounced around. This helps to achieve softer lighting, thereby producing higher quality pictures.
