  • Sony Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens (Black)

    Fast-focusing and 4K-shooting, the black Alpha a6300 from Sony is a versatile APS-C-format mirrorless digital camera designed for multimedia image-makers. Revolving around a redeveloped 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor, clean image quality is provided with a wide expandable sensitivity range to ISO 51200, along with accelerated readout speeds for internal 4K30 and Full HD 1080p120 video recording with full pixel readout. Stills shooters also benefit from the apt processing speed, which enables continuous shooting at 11 fps for up to 21 raw frames in a burst, as well as 14-bit raw file output. Complementing both stills and video, the sensor and processor combination also avails 4D FOCUS, which combines a wide-coverage 425-point phase-detection system with a 169-area contrast detection system for quick and precise focusing performance. This focusing system also enables High-density Tracking AF for more efficient and accurate tracking of moving subjects across the image frame. A well-rounded camera for both photographers and videographers, the a6300 is characterized by its speed and further qualified by its refined image and video quality.

    Complementing the imaging assets, the a6300 also sports a robust magnesium alloy body that is dust- and moisture-resistant to permit working in harsh environments. The compact profile incorporates a high-resolution XGA Tru-Finder 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder for bright, clear, eye-level viewing, and this EVF features a 120 fps viewing mode for smooth tracking of fast-moving subjects. A rear 3.0" 921.6k-dot LCD monitor is also available and has a tilting design to benefit shooting from high and low working angles. Additionally, for wireless remote control over the camera, or for just sharing imagery online, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC permits linking with a mobile device for intuitive wireless control.

    Included with the camera body is a Sony E-mount 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Retractable Zoom Lens, which provides a 24-75mm equivalent focal length range. This variety of perspectives is well-suited to everyday shooting and is further enhanced through the inclusion of Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for minimizing the appearance of camera shake. Power Zoom technology allows for electronic control over the zoom position and the inclusion of one extra-low dispersion element and four aspherical elements helps to reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range as well as contribute to high overall sharpness.

    24.2MP Exmor CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Processor
    The APS-C-format 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor pairs with the BIONZ X image processor to realize smooth, nuanced image quality with minimal noise and high sensitivity from ISO 100-25600, which can further be expanded to ISO 51200 for working in low-light conditions. The sensor features a unique design that utilizes thin copper wiring and enhanced circuit processing to boost light-gathering abilities, reduce noise, and increase readout speeds to benefit video recording. The sensor and processor combination also avails a top continuous shooting rate of 11 fps for up to 21 raw frames in a single burst with AF and AE, 8 fps shooting in live view, and permits 14-bit raw file output for a wider tonal and color scale.
    4D FOCUS
    Covering nearly the entire sensor area, a powerful 4D FOCUS system incorporates 425 on-chip phase-detection points along with 169 contrast-detection areas for precise focusing in as little as 0.05 seconds. The density of focusing points from this hybrid AF system also enables High-density Tracking AF Technology, which is adept at tracking moving subjects in a variety of lighting conditions. The use of phase-detection points also enables the use of A-mount lenses via the optional LA-EA3 or LA-EA1 lens mount adapters with full AF compatibility.

    The apt 4D FOCUS system also lends itself to a variety of focusing functions for refined accuracy, including Lock-on AF, which maintains focus on moving subjects throughout the use of a configurable frame that is set over the desired moving subject, and Expand Flexible Spot, which employs neighboring focus points to retain focus on moving subjects even if the originally selected point loses focus. Additionally, Eye AF can be used to base focus on recognized subjects' eyes for portraits and is available in both AF-S and AF-C modes. Autofocus can also be used in conjunction with the Focus Magnifier function for critical focus when homing in on minute subject details.

    In addition to autofocus, the a6300 also features a Peaking MF function to benefit manual focus control by highlighted sharp edges of contrast for a more objective means of acquiring sharp focus.
    UHD 4K Video Recording
    Internal recording of UHD 4K movies is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps and, based on the Super35mm recording area and effective 20MP (6000 x 3376) resolution, 2.4x oversampling renders greater detail and full pixel readout is possible, that is void of pixel binning, for higher quality imagery with reduced moiré and aliasing. Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps, and both resolutions utilize the 100 Mbps XAVC S format contained within an MP4 wrapper with 4:2:0 sampling. The high-speed, 120 fps recording also enables 4x and 5x slow-motion movie recording with the frame rate set to either 30p or 24p. In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.
    Custom Color Profiles and S-Log3 Gamma
    Support is available for the S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log-3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3 profiles that enable up to a 1300% wider dynamic range for smoother tonal and color gradations, along with enhanced sensitivity and clarity in shadows and mid-tones. These profiles also lend themselves to greater compatibility within a professional workflow and are well-paired to the Cineon Log gamma curve for versatile post-production grading and color control. The S-Log3 gamma setting also offers an impressive 14-stop wide dynamic range for greater control over the highlights and shadows, while the S-Gamut3.Cine profile can be used to mimic the qualities of scanned negative film with a wide gamut comparable to the DCI-P3 color space. Additionally, the popular S-Log2 setting is also available.
    Zebra and Gamma Display Assist
    An enhanced Zebra function is ideally suited to working with S-Log gamma profiles and aids in monitoring exposure values in high-contrast scenes. Video signal level targets can be set from 0 to 109, and specific ranges can be set to make exposure level adjustments easier.

    In contrast, a Gamma Display Assist function is also available that displays scenes with natural contrast when recording with S-Log settings. This function converts imagery to the ITU709 profile for easier on-camera monitoring.
    Time Code and User Bit Settings
    A time code can be used to record hours, minutes, seconds, frames on image data for more precise editing while the User Bit function can record date, time, and scene number to aid in editing together footage from multiple cameras.

Sony A6300 reviews

Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens and Accessory Kit (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 432.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality in a smal package I purchased this camera with a Sony FE 90mm F/2.8 macro lens for use as a compact underwater photography system. While my Nikon SLR underwater system is a more professional set-up but it's also twice the size. The Sony Alpha a6300 mirrorless bridges the gap between point and shoot cameras and SLR's providing very high quality in a small package. For traveling underwater photographers and photographers who carry a camera all day and want light weight and quality this is a camera to consider. There are also whole range of Sony, Canon and other lens that are compatible with many of the Sony products.
Date published: 2016-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, Performance & Price Great ISO range and better noise reduction than the A6000. Very fast Auto-focus system with the EVF being about as good as it can get. Compact but feels a tad bigger & slightly heavier than my previous A6000, has a real quality feel to it. Granted its not waterproof but dust & moisture resistance was important. Absolutely outstanding picture quality with prime lenses. With more & more lens coming out in E-Mount I'm looking for to expanding mycapabalities with this camera. The only drawback for me is there is no LCD touch-screen, but not a really big issue....Love the features of the 6300 over the 6000 and would definitely buy this camera again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great images poor interface I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the images with the kit lenses (16-50 mm and the 55-210). The lenses are fairly slow glass but even at high ISOs the image quality is good and the noise is acceptable and can be handled by software. �The user interface on the other hand can be much improved. �It hurts that the display is not touch sensitive and you need to make the selections via the buttons or wheel. �If you are a Mac user, the issues are worse since Sony doesn't support High Sierra yet to do firmware updates. �The customer service over the chat room and email leaves a lot to be desired.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had to return it due to overheating This took excellent photos, even with the kit lens, but it overheated so readily I could not use it. The Internet is full of experimenters attempting to deal with this issue with faster memory cards, tricking the camera into a low level reset by changing the date/year setting, and even external batteries, fans, or recorders. And it seems to not affect every sample of the camera. I wasn't willing to go through all that and returned it after 2 days. If you get this, test it right away in the environments you plan to use it in to see if it works for your needs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Performance Issues I own this camera as well as the aR II and pretty much everything from Canon up to the 1dX. The biggest problem with this camera and the aR II is focusing performance. I shoot animals and landscapes and find the focusing performance slow and cumbersome even compared to the Canon SL1 not to mention the 5D Mk III or 7D Mk II. Great specs and good features and ergonomics but the performance is not quite there yet. Further, the lens selection really is abysmal. Canon or Sigma glass is far superior and better performers but does not compensate for the poor focusing performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I am a very enthusiastic photographer with a picky taste for lenses. Having said that, i navigate using primes as the GM 85mm, the Sony 24mm, some old school manual focus Zeiss lenses etc. To keep up with my GM, I opted for the a6300 the main reason being the AF capabilities. My GM 85 was performing ok on my a7r but when the kids had a bit too much sugar, it wouldn't keep up. I just finished working on a BD party i shot last weekend with the a6300 and the results are absolutely great. It basically translates into being given the ability to take certain shots i would not be able to capture with my a7r.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and Sales experience My old camera was the Sony NEX 7. I have waited almost 5 years to upgrade as I didn't see significant enough improvements. The a6300 has much better low light capabilities. It also has far faster shutter and focus mechanisms. I chose the a6300 over the brand new a6500 because the stability available on the a6500, while impressive, isn't particularly relevant -- all of the longer lenses Sony has have stability anyway. I'll consider the a6500 if and when Sony comes out with a new line of quality lightweight lenses. As for now, the much cheaper and almost just as good a6300 is the far better deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this camera! I had an NEX-5n and swore I'd never buy Sony again because of the overheating issue, even though I loved the image quality. I couldn't resist when they put out the A7Sii and I bought one and love that, too. But the A6300 only differs from the A7Sii in that it has an APS-C sized sensor and it doesn't quite have the low light capability. That said, it still does well in low light and I don't mind the slightly smaller sensor. In fact, when using S-Log3 its minimum ISO is 800, rather than the A7Sii's 1600, and for stills it's a 24MP camera, rather than the A7Sii's 12MP. It's a great buy and my new go-to camera!
