Sony a6300

 

The Sony a6300 is a very compact and very powerful consumer level ILC. Sporting the Sony E-mount system and powerful features, this camera has all the power and quality that you will find in a DSLR, packed into a compact frame. Read more in our Full...

Lack of optical image stabilization built into body (as we are seeing on many of the new Sony models) ; Camera boosts ISO to keep images sharp ; Battery Life is average for an ILC, way below a DSLR ; USB power adapter leaves you charging your batteries...

Sony a6300 review

 

The A6300 demonstrates why Sony continues to dominate in the mirrorless camera market

Has Sony created another hit? The A6300 is simply one of the best, well-rounded mirrorless cameras we’ve tested to date, so we would say, yes. Sony currently dominates the mirrorless camera market, and with continual product offerings like the A6300,...

Sony Alpha A6300 (body only)

 

It's priced at $1,000 (£1,000, AU$1,700) for the body, and $1,150 (£1,100) for a kit with the 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 power-zoom lens. There doesn't seem to be any official kit pricing in Australia, but I've seen it for AU$1,800.

The Sony A6300 delivers class-leading photo and video quality, plus good performance and features for shooting action.

Myriad small annoyances mar the experience and it has the trademark poor battery life of Sony's A series. Plus it really could use in-body image stabilization.

A respectable update to its very popular A6000 mirrorless interchangeable-camera model, the Sony A6300 remains great but also retains some of the drawbacks of its predecessor.

Sony A6300 review:

 

The Sony A6300 experience, as with many of its A series interchangeable-lens camera (ILC) models, feels like soaring through the sky one minute only to smack into a window the next. It flies with a beefed-up autofocus system, excellent 4K video (with...

Sony Alpha 6300

 

The Sony Alpha 6300 adds weather-sealing and 4K video to the popular midrange Alpha 6000. It's the premium mirrorless camera that Sony photographers have been waiting for.

Quick autofocus. 11.1fps burst shooting. 4K video capture. Crisp EVF. Tilting rear display. Strong high ISO performance. Built-in flash. Wi-Fi with NFC. Weather-sealed body.

Omits touch-screen support. Lacks in-body stabilization. Dense menu system. Some apps must be purchased. Doesn't include external charger.

Conclusions The Alpha 6300 is another strong, forward-thinking mirrorless camera from Sony. Its 24-megapixel image sensor offers plenty of resolution, performs well at higher ISOs, and can capture video at 4K resolution. It also houses an autofocus...

Sony Alpha a6300 Review

 

The Sony a6300 is the company's latest mid-range mirrorless camera. Like the a6000 it still offers 24MP resolution but the autofocus ability, video capability, build quality, viewfinder resolution and price have all been increased.

Sony's A6300 is a step forward for mid-tier mirrorless cameras

 

If you're looking for a mirrorless camera that's not too expensive, the A6300 is a great choice.

Sony A6300 Review

 

The Sony A6300 replaces the two year old A6000 as Sony's premium APS-C Alpha offering. The A6300 retains a similar outward appearance to its predecessor, although the new camera does feature full weather sealing against dust and moisture ingress. But...

With the Alpha 7 and RX series’ receiving such critical acclaim over the past couple of years, Sony’s APS-C CSCs have been starting to seem somewhat neglected. Thankfully, the Sony A6300 has brought the old NEX series back with a bang. It may appear to...

Sony A6300 Review

 

The Sony A6300 serves as the follow-up to one of the most popular cameras in recent years, the A6000. Given the predecessor's top marks, it's a tough act to follow. Sony's pulled it off, though, packing in so many new features and performance...

Excellent image quality; Improved high-ISO performance; Better JPEG quality; Fast autofocus; Very good subject tracking with real-time live view feature; All-magnesium body construction; 4K video

Slow buffer clearing (no UHS-II support); No touchscreen, Clunky menus; Wi-Fi can be a bit frustrating to use

Sony a6300 Review – 4K UHD Alpha Mirrorless Digital Camera

 

After an anticipation-laden time spent waiting for it, we finally got to see the arrival of Sony's successor to the bestselling a6000 interchangeable lens mirrorless HD camera from 2014. This is of course the new Sony a6300 and while it shares a number...

Excellent high resolution photos ; Amazingly fast Auto Focus at 0.05 seconds ; 425 phase detection points ; 4K video with no pixel binning ; Tough, rugged build ; Great price

Difficult to manually set a focus point ; clumsy main control button/dial layout

Our bottom line for the Sony a6300 4K mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is that this is one superb, well priced shooter for almost any consumer or even prosumer needs. If you want high performance and especially high low light performance on a...
