The a6300 is the flagship APS-C mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera from Sony featuring the world's fastest1 0.051-s AF with the most2 phase-detection AF points (4252), Exmor® CMOS sensor with 24.2 effective megapixels, extra-wide ISO 100-512004 sensitivity range, enhanced 4K movie recording, and XGA OLED Tru-Finder™.
Fastest to focus
Meet the a6300—the flagship model in the form of an APS-C mirrorless camera that takes autofocusing (AF) and imaging speed and performance to astonishing new heights.
24.2 MP3 Exmor® CMOS image sensor
The new 24.2 MP3 Exmor® CMOS sensor raises the bar of imaging performance. Its copper wiring and enhanced circuitry make it possible to lower the wiring layer and boost light collection efficiency, in order to capture low-noise images with a wide sensitivity range up to ISO 512004. The use of copper raises readout speed as well as the potential of advanced 4K and Full HD 120fps shooting.
High-speed BIONZ X™ image processing engine
How do the superior speed, power and efficiency of the BIONZ X™ image processor unleash the potential and sensitivity of the new image sensor With an algorithm optimized for the new image sensor to provide stills and movies with unrivaled resolution and reproduce greater texture and detail, particularly at mid-to-high ISO settings.
425 phase-detection AF points
With the world's most2 (425)2 focal plane phase-detection AF points helping to provide distinctively wide and dense AF point coverage, the a6300 focuses more accurately, efficiently, and reliably on subjects throughout the frame.
0.051 s fast AF
The a6300 achieves the world's fastest1 (0.05 s1) AF speed with the enhanced Fast Hybrid AF's integrated autofocusing performance and the uncanny efficiency of the BIONZ X™ image processing engine to handle so much information with astonishing accuracy.
High-density Tracking AF Technology
For supremely reliable accuracy and tracking stability, new High-density Tracking AF Technology activates AF points to cover the area around the subject with about 7.5 times as much density as the 6000. Only this focal plane phase-detection autofocus function can seamlessly activate AF points and track subjects moving within frame with such unerring precision.
Enhanced Fast Hybrid AF for movies
Fast Hybrid AF makes movie autofocus exceptionally precise, so it's especially valuable for 4Krecording. In addition to a very dense phase-detection AF point array, this system in the a6300 features adjustable AF Drive Speed and AF Tracking Sensitivity to help you express more creativity by manipulating focus, as far as conditions and your imagination allow.
High-speed live-view continuous shooting
Clearly capture action with high-speed continuous shooting at up to 11fps. Or choose among three speeds up to 8fps, according to the shooting situation, for live-view continuous shooting with very little lag on the EVF or LCD screen, to get the sense of immediacy of shooting with an optical viewfinder.
Focal plane phase-detection AF for A-mount lenses
The a6300 offers focal plane phase-detection AF even when an A-mount lens5 is mounted using a mount adapter (LA-EA3) from Sony. So you can take advantage of the autofocus system's uniquely wide coverage provided by 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points, as well as fast, fluidtracking performance when shooting with other lenses as well as E-mount lenses.
XGA OLED Tru-Finder™
The a6300 introduces a high-contrast, high-resolution, high-visibility XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ that reproduces darkness and color in very fine detail, as well as a mode to display images at the higher frame rate of 120fps (100fps), so you can see action smoothly and track it easily on this electronic viewfinder.
4K movie recording
4K movie recording in the Super 35 mm7 format with full pixel readout and no pixel binning allows about 2.4 times8 as much information as is basically required for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). Data this rich is, in fact, equivalent to 6K data, so it clearly conveys the ultimate resolution in 4K images.
Full HD 120fps shooting and 4x/5x slow motion recording
You can shoot high-quality Full HD9 footage, even in Full HD 120fps (100fps) high-speed shooting with AF tracking at a high bitrate up to 100 Mbps. Otherwise, the camera can record 4x/5x slow motion movies internally when the frame rate is set at 30p (25p) or 24p.
S-Gamut/S-Log shooting give you flexibility to make more expressive movies by performing color grading in post-production. The S-Log3 and S-Log2 gamma curves feature wide dynamic range (up to 1300%) to minimize whiteout and blackout. The a6300 even offers impressive 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting.The camera also supports S-Gamut, S-Gamut3, and S-Gamut3. Cine color space from Sony.
*S-Log2 and S-Log3 are premised on processing pictures.
Silent Shooting mode releases the shutter without a sound, even in continuous shooting up to about 3fps with AF/AE tracking, so it's very convenient for shooting indoor performances, outdoor wildlife, and in other situations where silence is essential. To turn this mode on/off more intuitively and less intrusively, assign it to a customizable button.
One-touch remote/One-touch sharing
One-touch remote makes your smartphone or tablet a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to your device for SNS sharing. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile™ app via Wi-Fi® to your NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. No NFC No problem. New QR code compatibility can also pair the devices.
AF in Focus Magnifier
You can use autofocus even while enlarging a selected image area on the viewfinder or LCD screen, for finer adjustment of focus, for example. Excellent for macro shooting, when accurate focusing is crucial.
This function maintains focus on a moving subject automatically. Simply align the target frame and the subject to be tracked, and press the center button. If you lose track of the subject, the camera can detect that subject and resume the Lock-on AF function when the subject reappears on the screen.
Expand Flexible Spot
When the selected AF point loses track of or is not positioned on a moving subject, Expand Flexible Spot function automatically directs surrounding AF points to restore focus instantly on that subject.
Eye AF in AF-C mode
Eye AF is now available in AF-C mode in this camera. This means it automatically focuses on and even tracks focus on a subject's eye, as the face moves, extending your freedom to frame a shot.
High sound quality (microphone terminal, XLR adapter kit)
In addition to plug-in microphones, the camera supports line input from professional-standard audio devices with XLR terminal, with use of a separately sold XLR adapter kit (XLR-K2M/XLR-K1M) that enables connection with various high-end microphones. That way, you can make fine audio setting adjustments and high-quality/low-noise sound recordings worthy of serious movie shooting.
Clean HDMI output
This function supports 4K and Full HD, and allows uncompressed movies to be output to an external recorder or monitor. The image can also be recorded in the camera10 even while signals are output using this function.
