AF Evolution Accelerates
The world's fastest (0.05 s) autofocus, featuring the world's most (425) phase-detection AF points, and High-density Tracking AF Technology take 4D FOCUS farther.
World's most (425) phase-detection AF points - Denser phase-detection AF point coverage
With an incredible 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points densely positioned over the entire image area, this comprehensive AF point coverage ensures that no subject escapes its attention.
World's fastest (0.05 sec) AF speed - Enhanced Fast Hybrid AF
With the world's highest AF speed (0.05 s) assisted by the ultra-efficient BIONZ X image processing engine, you can instantly capture a fast-moving subject with supreme accuracy.
High-density Tracking AF Technology - Extra-consistent shooting of fast-moving action
High-density Tracking AF Technology quickly activates AF points to follow moving subjects with about 7.5 times the coverage density of the a6000, for extra-precise, reliable detection and tracking of subjects in action.
Preserve more peak moments - High-speed continuous shooting clarifies climactic action
Ensure clear coverage of crucial moments. Choose continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking up to 11fps, or up to 8fps with live view featuring minimal display lag on the EVF or LCD screen.
Inside imaging innovation
The Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processing algorithm help capture high-quality images throughout a wide sensitivity range up to ISO 51200.
Extra image sensor perception - Raising resolution and efficiency
With a new lower copper wiring layer and processing circuitry that improves light collection efficiency, the image sensor expands sensitivity range up to ISO 512003 with reduced noise.
Peerless processing performance - Driving our image processing engine farther
The BIONZ X image processor works with the image sensor to provide stills and movies with more clarity and detailed texture, with less noise, especially in the mid-to-high ISO range.
Shoot more moving action
Beyond higher-resolution 4K recording, multiple movie functions sharpen your advantage and appetite to support professional moviemaking.
For the ultimate resolution in 4K movie recording
Full pixel readout without pixel binning (about 2.4x (6K equivalent) as much image data condensed to 4K) achieves the ultimate in 4K movie resolution and realism.
Advance your movie-making ambitions - Run the gamut of greater range and refinement
Newly employed S-Gamut/S-Log enable wide dynamic range (max. 1300%) shooting for more expressive movie-making in post-production. The a6300 even offers 14-stop latitude at S-Log3 setting.
Full HD 120fps recording/Slow motion recording
Shoot 120fps (100fps) high-speed shooting in Full HD with AF tracking. Or, record 4x/5x slow motion movies internally.
High-bitrate XAVC S format
XAVC S format allows 4K recording (24p (25p), 30p) and Full 120fps high-speed shooting (120p) at up to 100 Mbps bitrate to capture detailed movies with minimal compression noise.
Enhanced operability and reliability
With advanced, reliable, easy-to-use functions in a robust magnesium alloy body, the a6300 rises to new heights of professional-class performance.
Preview and monitor exactly what you aim for
The new high-contrast, high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder offers spectacular views, especially when new high-frame-rate 120fps mode is selected to display smoother action for easier tracking.
- Better Grip: An ergonomic grip gives you a more secure hold of the camera, even with a large lens, plus more assured shutter release and Mode dial operation.
- Megnesium Alloy Body: Magnesium allow construction makes the camera body stroe, light and rigid enough to withstand touch shooting assignments.
- Robust Lens Mount: This provides a solid foundation for mounting even large, heavy telephoto or movie-shooting lenses for long, rugged use.
- Dust/Moisture Resistance: Sealed buttons/dials and double-layered interlocking components prevent entry of dust and moisture, for reliable operation under tough conditions.
- Power Supply via USB: To conserve the camera's internal battery, camera operation can be powered via USB connection to a PC or mobile battery.
- Digital Level Gauge: The digital level gauge indicated that the camera is level in both the horizontal (pitch) and front-back (tilt) directions.
- Tiltable LCD Screen: The LCD screen tilts up and down, about 90 degrees and 45 degrees, respectively, to accommodate various shooting angles.
- Easy Button Customization: Assign any of the 64 functions to any of 9 customizable buttons for more intuitive, quick, easy access and control.
Now, it's even easier to share what you shoot - Use WiFi/NFC/QR code for seamless, simple connections
Wireless links via Near Field Communication (and now, via QR code, for those without NFC-enabled smartphones) make it easy to transfer image data from the a6300 to mobile devices.
- PlayMemories Online: Backup to Sony secure cloud service and access your photos and videos from any devices.
- PlayMemories Camera Apps: This application broadens your photographic horizons by letting you add more functions to the camera.
Wide-ranging accessories meet every need - Professional options open up new horizons.
Further expand your shooting pleasure and give your photography a professional edge with accessories specially designed for this model.
