Sony a6300 Overview

Sony a6300 Overview

It is compact, has interchangeable lenses and records in 4K. These are just a few features of the Sony a6300 camera

Overview

Capture action like never before with the Sony a6300 mirrorless camera. With lightning-fast autofocus (0.05 seconds), 425 phase-detection wide area AF points, and high-density AF tracking, the a6300 captures fast action. In-camera 4K video recording with Super 35mm captures lifelike footage with brilliant colour and detail. It includes a 16-50mm lens.

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

  • The included 16-50mm E-mount retractable Power Zoom lens is small and compact, barely protruding from the front of your camera so you can still slide your a5000 in your jacket pocket with the lens attached. It features ED and aspherical elements for reliably sharp and detailed images well suited to everyday shooting.
  • 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.

Overheating issues!

Whilst the camera and lens works fine with excellent pictures, it suffers from overheating if you're taking pictures outside on a hot day. This happened numerous times when I was on vacation in Italy and the warning pops up about senor overheating. This prevents you from taking any more pictures till it cools down. Also the power zoom grip cove fell out! Not very happy with the system.

Great compact Camera

Excellent camera in a small form factor. If you're looking for a DSLR in a small package, it's the choice to go. Limited in 4K video as the buffer is too small(read on overheating issues).

Buyers Beware!

Bought a Geek Squad open box and was delivered one with missing parts. Bought a brand new device and the LCD screen had issues. Had it exchanged for another and there was a dead pixel in the digital view finder. I haven't had the opportunity to turn on the 4th camera. Was easily sold on extended warranty for the product, which I had no intention of buying. Called the customer service hotline and was told the only way to reach Bestbuy's "head office" was to post a product review. What a joke!

Amazing camera!

My last camera was a Canon T2i, this thing is an amazing upgrade. Incredible low-light, stunning 4k video, and the wide variety of lens adapters available for this camera have made it a perfect match for my needs.

No Rear lens cap or body cap in kit

When you buy this bundle know that Sony does not include a rear lens cap or a body cap for the camera. I've purchased Nikon, Panasonic and Canon DSLR camera's with a kit lens and they have all provided caps for the body and rear lens. Sony will not honor this oversight and want you to purchase both caps separately. Be prepared for very poor customer service when you call in if you have any concerns. I had one agent yell at me and hang up the phone.

Good camera!

The camera is really good and you can take high quality photos at night or dark scenes. I have received my camera box in a huge box and just wrapped up with 2 thin papers. It was also opened and you could not say was it brand new or open box!

Awesome for Photos! Great for Video!!

I'll get straight to the point: 1.Very Very fast focusing (no hunting or guessing what to lock on) 2. Excellent 4K video quality even compared to A7 series. 3. Very good in low light (though not as good as the A7 buddies. 4. Better images than RX10ii ( I returned my RX10ii and got this because of the APS-C size image sensor) better low light and better DOF...with good lenses of course. 5. Great menu system allows for various customization options. E.g you can save up to 6 memory presets for all settings. Cons: Its a small size camera for huge hands....especially trying to tune the diopter next to the viewfinder. Overall 5 stars.
