Boasting lightning-fast autofocus (0.05 seconds), 425 phase-detection wide area AF points, and high-density AF tracking, the a6300 easily captures fast action. In-camera 4K video recording with Super 35mm format captures true-to-life footage with brilliant colour and detail.

More Information

Advanced imaging power

  • Capturing exceptional images with amazing details, colours, and textures is easy thanks to the 24.2MP Exmor CMOS APS-C image sensor. It features an enhanced design, offering better light collection capabilities and increased readout speeds. And what does that all mean? It means you get stunning images with excellent colour reproduction, and a high number of frames during continuous shooting and smoother in-camera video recording.
  • With the BIONZ X 5 image processor, the Sony a6300 performs beautifully in bright and low light. Featuring a native ISO sensitivity range of 100 to 51,200 (expandable), the BIONZ X delivers incredibly detailed images with exceptional clarity and texture. At mid to high ISO ranges your images will have less noise, meaning you'll be able to easily capture all of the splendor of a lantern-lit Lunar New Year celebration.

4K and 4D performance

  • With great power comes great performance. In-camera 4K UHD video recording in Super 35mm format produces near-cinematic footage with phenomenal depth, clarity, and colour. The Super 35mm format records at approximately 2.4x (6K equivalent) that of 4K and then oversamples the information for videos with such vivid detail that you'll feel as though you're reliving the experience.
  • The a6300 uses the XAVC S format, ensuring you get maximum clarity and detail. XAVC S records at 100Mbps when recording 4K and 50Mbps for Full HD footage. The a6300 records 4K UHD video at up to 30fps and Full HD video at 120fps for slow motion videos.
  • Action won't wait for you. Thankfully the a6300 employs 4D FOCUS that uses a wide AF (autofocus) area with 425 phase-detection AF points for accurate focusing throughout the frame, Fast Hybrid AF (phase detection and contrast detection) that accurately measures the distance to the subject by locking on to it in as little as 0.05 second, and an advanced AF algorithm that predicts the subject's movement for quick, precise AF tracking.
  • High-density tracking AF technology offers enhanced subject detection and tracking performance. It activates AF points around the subject and intelligently adjust them according to the subject's movements. This gives you incredibly sharp images when used with the high-speed 11fps continuous shooting or 8fps continuous live-view mode, providing precise framing for fast action on the LCD screen or electronic viewfinder (EVF).

Enhanced shooting, easy sharing

  • Equipped with an XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF with approximately 2.359 million dots, you get corner-to-corner visibility when framing your shots. This EVF allows you to display images at 120fps, allowing fast action to display smoothly so tracking subjects through the viewfinder is easy.
  • Photography doesn't always happen at eye level. The 2.95-inch 921k-dot tiltable TFT LCD display lets you take photos from different angles, creating unique images from your unique perspective.
  • Silent shooting mode lets you capture images without the distraction of the shutter release click. It offers up to 3fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking, making it ideal for photographing indoor performances and events. That means you can take pictures at your child's first recital and not annoy the rest of the audience.
  • With 9 customizable buttons you can personalize the a6300 to your shooting style. Each button can be assigned with 1 of 64 different functions.
  • Integrated Wi-Fi allows remote control and viewing from your compatible smart device and the PlayMemories mobile app. The app also makes it easy to share images on your favourite social networking sites through your smartphone. Built-in NFC offers simple connectivity for compatible smart devices and QR code scanning provides easy connectivity for non-NFC mobile devices.
  • The best laid plans can often go awry. Thankfully, the a6300 has dust and moisture resistance, rugged magnesium alloy construction, and a reinforced lens mount. So you can enjoy worry-free shooting in when the weather isn't cooperating.

Best entry level interchangeable lens camera.

It doesn't matter if you know how to take photos. This camera turns any amateur into a relatively decent photographer. Super fast autofocus point means you can literally point and shoot, but end up with fairly high quality. Used the 4K video feature several times; final result was very impressive. I would probably categorize myself as a super amateur photographer, and yet the photos I've shared online in photography forums seem to lead people to think I actually know what I was doing. Awesome camera. Seems a bit pricey, but its worth every penny. Almost forgot, there is also a kit lens bundle if you do not have any e-lenses. The kit lens isn't anything amazing, but it'll do for beginners.
