Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

The black Sony Alpha 6000 Compact System Camera with 16-50 mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens is a sleeker alternative to a DSLR, benefitting from rapid autofocus and image processing, WiFi and Near Field Communication (NFC), and an expert viewfinder.

Light speed performance


With incredibly quick autofocus at 0.06 seconds, the a6000 is one of the fastest performing cameras for AF on the market. You're assured of blur-free results thanks to the 11 fps continuous shooting mode and you can manually focus the camera if you prefer more control.

This interchangeable lens camera achieves such rapid image capture using 179-point focusing and high-speed, high-precision contrast-detection autofocus.

You can also set the camera to full manual mode, letting you take control of exposure, aperture, white balance and more.

Highly sophisticated image sensor


The a6000 comes equipped with a 24.3 megapixel Exmor CMOS image sensor that captures striking detail and rich tones - this is the same size sensor as found in most DSLRs.

This premium sensor has been teamed with a rapid BIONZ X image processing engine that realistically recreates textures and colours, so that your photos look just the way as they are seen with the naked eye.

An ISO range of 100 to 25,600 ensures great flexibility and performance, even at dusk or in low lit conditions.

DSLR-style controls


The Sony a6000 benefits from DSLR-style operation and functionality, and includes an intuitive control dial, a viewfinder and a hot-shoe adapter. The compact system camera also plays host to a built-in flash and tilting LCD screen that makes light work of taking photos at unique angles.

The OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder boasts high contrast and resolution, making it easy to frame shots accurately and naturally.


Despite its added features, the
a6000 remains exceptionally sleek and lightweight, weighing in at just 285 g.

WiFi and NFC-enabled


The Sony a6000 features a selection of advanced connections including NFC and WiFi.

With Near Field Communication you can send your latest photos and videos to your NFC-enabled devices in just one touch. You can even use your phone or tablet as a convenient remote control for the camera.

Whether you want a powerful zoom for distant subjects, or a macro lens for detailed close-ups, there will be a lens to meet your needs. A-mount lenses can also be used by via an additional adapter.

Essential camera accessories


It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

What's more, we range a variety of camera cases that will protect and help keep your gear organised on photography journeys.
