Park Picks 2017 Highly Commended: Best Mirrorless Camera

The Sony a6300 is a bigger brother to the very popular Sony a6000 mirrorless camera, and joined the ranks of the Sony E-Mount revolution which is seeing an unprecedented amount of amazing quality glass added to it each year.

Introducing 4K video capture at Super 35mm and an EVF with a refresh rate of 120fps this camera sits very nicely in between the entry level Sony mirrorless cameras and their full range siblings of the a7 family.

Continuous shooting at 11fps and the 'World's fastest AF of 0,05s' make this a viable choice for those looking to capture action at a speed, and the 24.2MP APS-C sensor will ensure this is done at a high quality too.

Our Verdict

The Sony a6300 expands upon the achievements of its older brother, the Sony a6000 by breaking new ground in terms of focusing, video capture, and continuous shooting. The ability to record Full HD video in slow motion is also a huge positive, and it delivers incredible high resolution images that are often found on much more expensive cameras.

Focusing

a6300 Focus Button Close Up

Using Sony’s 4D FOCUS system previously found on the Sony a6000, the Sony 6300 mirrorless camera boasts the world’s fastest autofocus of just 0.05 seconds (amongst interchangeable lens cameras with an APS-C sized sensor) by using a Fast Hybrid autofocus system, combining highly accurate contrast autofocus with high-speed phase detection autofocus. Setting yet another world record, it also has an unbelievable 425 phase detection autofocus points - the highest number on any interchangeable lens camera.

It also features high-density tracking autofocus which greatly improves its tracking performance and subject detection. This allows for a large amount of autofocus points to be activated around a subject - roughly 7.5x more than on its a6000 predecessor, and it adjusts them intelligently in accordance with the motion of the subject. Furthermore, the a6300 offers expanded flexible spot autofocus and you can also use autofocus in focus magnifier mode, and Eye AF in AF-C mode. 

The focusing accuracy, enhanced tracking, and 425 phase detection autofocus points are all available when using Sony A-mount lenses, when combined with a mount adapter such as the Sony LA-EA3. This is the first time this has been possible on Sony E-mount interchangeable lens cameras with an APS-C sensor, previously only found on the Sony a7 II and Sony a7R II full frame cameras.

Continuous shooting

The Sony a6300 can continuously shoot at up to 11fps with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking. In live-view mode, it can continuously shoot at 8fps, offering completely accurate framing of fast-moving subjects on the Tru-finder or LCD screen.

Sensor, engine, and ISO

The 6300 compact system camera has a newly developed 24.2 megapixel APC-C Exmor CMOS sensor which, together with the BIONZ X image processing engine, captures incredible images with low noise throughout its ISO range of 100-51,200.

The sensor incorporates copper wiring which greatly increases readout speed and improves light collection efficiency. The BIONZ X processor has an upgraded processing algorithm which makes the most of the sensor’s capabilities.

Video

A welcome addition to the a6300 is the ability to record 4K video in Super 35mm format. In this mode, the camera utilises full pixel readout without pixel binning, to gather 20MP of data - roughly 2.4x (6K equivalent) as many pixels as 4K UHD. It then oversamples the data to deliver outstanding high resolution footage with unbelievable depth and detail. By using the XAVC S codec which records at 100Mbps when recording in 4K, and 50Mbps during Full HD capture, maximum clarity and detail is guaranteed. 

The a6300 can focus around twice as fast as the 6000 when recording video, and you can adjust autofocus tracking sensitivity and speed. The camera also offers silent shooting functionality.

Yet another new addition to APS-C interchangeable lens cameras is the ability to record Full HD at 120 frames per second at 100Mbps. In this mode, you can review and edit your footage into 4x or 5x slow motion movie files in Full HD at 24p or 30p with autofocus tracking. Additionally, S-Log gamma recording is available for wide dynamic range shooting, allowing for around 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting, and it supports S-Gamut for a wider colour space.

The camera comes with microphone line input and also supports XLR microphones, with the use of Sony’s XLR adapter kit. Furthermore, it features the new Gamma Display Assist, which lets you monitor your images or focus when capturing S-Log videos. The enhanced Zebra functionality allows for greater exposure control, and picture profile settings are also available, as well as Time Code / User Bit.

EVF

The a6300 has an XGA organic LED Tru-Finder which has around 2.4 million dots for brilliant corner-to-corner visibility. A new mode makes subject tracking easier than ever before, as it lets you display images at 120 frames per second, so action is smooth and shows minimal afterimages.

Wi-Fi and NFC

The Sony a6300 is both Wi-fi and NFC compatible and fully compatible with Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile app, which is available on both iOS and Android platforms, and is also fully functional with Sony’s expanding range of Playmemories Camera Apps, adding a variety of creative options. It can also use QR codes to easily connect to non-NFC smart phones.

Design and construction

Constructed from a durable magnesium alloy, the a6300 is very robust and is also dust and moisture-resistant. It has a reinforced lens mount structure, a new shutter release button and a mode dial with improved operability and grip.

You can customise the camera to match your individual shooting style, with 9 customisable buttons that you can assign one of 64 different functions to.
