Let’s talk about the sensor in both the camera,  Both mirrorless camera features aps-c sensor with 24 megapixel resolution.

1. AutoFocus

If you talk about hybrid autofocus in system then the Fuji remains limited to 91 points where as the Sony A6000 features 25 contrast detect AF points added with 179 Phase AF points. With Sony a6000 high density AF system you will going to get more frame coverage compared to the Fuji X-A5.

2. Fuji X-A5 1 Stop more ISO

Fuji X-A5 camera features  one stop more ISO range compared to the Sony a6000 camera so we might see some improvement in the low light performance of the camera compared to the a6000.

3. Electronic shutter

Fujifilm X-A5 camera features Global shutter.  So, Fuji camera is quite helpful in some situation like shooting action and  Sports.

4. Burst Rate and Buffer

Continuous shooting a speed of Sony a6000 is better compared to the Fuji X-A5.  Fuji, allowed a little buffer  inside the Fuji X-A5 camera.  Whereas, Sony a6000 you get a large  buffer, with Sony a6000 you can capture 40 JPG file in a single burst,  and you can also capture 24 files in a single click. But, with Fuji X-A5 camera  the continuous shooting a speed of 6 frames per second limited to 10 shots only and after that you have to allow buffer to clearup.

5. Video – Fuji features limited 4K

Fuji X-A5  camera features 4K video recording with Limited frame rate of 15 frames per second and a time limit of 5 minutes only.  which is really insane,  its look like Fuji somehow added the 4K video mode inside the X-A5 camera.

So I am considering that both camera can record a decent FULL HD video, but for 4K recording you have to seek a different camera.

6. Wireless Transfer

At the end if you have a habit of transferring your files from camera to your smartphone,  then you shouldn’t buy the Fuji X-A5 camera.  Fuji X-A5  camera wireless transfer is done with bluetooth only which is slow.  Sony a6000 uses built in wireless and NFC connectivity to transfer files fastly.

Both, are excellent camera but the Sony a6000 features a high density auto focusing system and the continuous shooting speed of Sony is more with large buffer. Fuji X-A5 offer one stop more lowlight sensitivity compared to the a6000, so may see bit cleaner images at High ISO range.
