24 hours with Sony’s A6300 mirrorless camera

Last month, Sony introduced its A6300 mirrorless camera, a follow-up to the sought-after A6000 from 2014. As expected, the company’s latest compact Alpha shooter brings top-of-the-line specifications. That includes a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, a Bionz X image processor, 11-fps continuous shooting, ISO up to 52,000 and 4K video in Super 35mm. In particular, Sony is emphasizing the A6300’s newly developed 4D Focus, which is capable of locking in on a subject in a ridiculous 0.05 seconds. That’s speedier than basically every other camera available right now.

In my time so far with the A6300, I can already tell you that I’m impressed. The camera’s autofocus system is as fast as advertised, and it works for both stills and videos. Coming from someone who’s used to the higher-end A7R II or A7S II models, the A6300 feels like an upgrade. Best of all, it’s going to cost a relatively reasonable $1,000 (body-only) when it launches later this month. We’ll follow up soon with a deeper dive, but for now check out these sample images taken with Sony’s A6300.
