Sony A6300 review

 

4K video and impressive focusing specs make the A6300 sparkle

Very good JPEG quality ; High-quality viewfinder ; Fast and capable AF system

Underpowered LCD at default settings ; Display not touch-sensitive ; No in-camera raw processing

The A6300 is a well-rounded camera with a good specification, and delivers great performance in a range of situations. Its autofocus system is excellent, and its viewfinder should convince traditionalists of the merits of electronic units.

Sony Alpha a6300

 

The Sony Alpha a6300 sits at the top of the Sony APS-C camera lineup. It costs £1,000 body-only at release, sitting below the full-frame Sony A7 II.

Sony A6300 review

 

It's the fastest focuser in the west

Fast, accurate autofocus ; Great image quality, even in low light ; Invaluable OLED viewfinder ; Compact, lightweight and sturdy build

Pretty pricey

A fantastic all-rounder, if you can stomach the price tag

Sony Alpha A6300 Full Review

 

We review the high speed Sony Alpha A6300, with 11fps continuous shooting, advanced AF, and 4K video recording.

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.
