Sony Alpha a6300 24.2MP Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens (Black)

The Sony Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera perfectly suits the high-performance photography needs of amateurs and professionals. With the world’s fastest autofocus at 0.05 seconds and the world's most phase detection AF points at 425, the a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera from Sony is a cut above the rest. Its super fast autofocus system combined with Sony's BIONZ X image processor makes it possible to capture every detail of fast moving subjects. Perfect for covering sporting events, the a6300 digital camera's 425 focal plane phase detection AF points that are densely positioned in the image area help capture fast moving objects from distance without blur. You can totally rely on the performance power of the a6300's 24.2MP Exmor CMOS image sensor when shooting in low light environments. The mirrorless camera comes packed with features like an XGA OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder, a 3" 921.6k-dot tilting LCD screen, and digital level gauge.

24.2MP Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor

Thanks to the large surface area of the a6300's powerful 24.2-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS image sensor that accounts for a greater amount of light collection for optimal low-noise performance in a wide sensitivity range up to ISO 51200. With improved sensitivity and faster readout speeds, this chip makes smooth 4K and Full HD high-speed 120 fps shooting possible. When combined with a powerful and highly efficient BIONZ X image processing engine, the camera produces stills and movies with unrivaled resolution. The final imagery features greater texture and detail, particularly at mid-to-high ISO settings.

4K Movie Recording

Now you can record ultimate 4K movies using the a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera. It can record clean, crisp, professional quality video and deliver full pixel readout with no pixel binning. This mirrorless digital camera has high-bit-rate 120 fps XAVC S format for 4K recording, supports up to 5x slow-motion recording Picture Profile, PAL/NTSC dual recording, time code, clean HDMI output, and other professional workflow features to give cinema-quality videos.

Easy to Use Functions

The Sony a6300 is built to be incredibly durable to optimize your workflow for efficient use. It features an extra-smooth XGA OLED Tru-Finder for framing shots. A tiltable 3" 921.6k-dot LCD monitor lets you capture images tricky angles. The camera comes with an enhanced grip and shutter button that gives you the most comfortable hold on your device for extended use. Sony a6300 features a tough magnesium body with a robust lens mount and is dust and moisture resistance.

0.0513s Fast AF

Boasting an enhanced Fast Hybrid AF (Autofocus) system, the Sony Alpha a6300 can achieve the world's fastest (0.05 s) AF speed. It offers 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points that cover almost 84-percent of the total image area for better motion tracking. This makes Alpha a6300 most suitable for sports or action photography as it can easily capture fast moving objects without blur.

S-Gamut/S-Log Shooting

S-Gamut/S-Log shooting give you the 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 Camera offers impressive 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting and also supports S-Gamut, S-Gamut3, and S-Gamut3 formats.

Sony 16-50mm OSS Lens

This Sony Alpha a6000 Interchangeable Lens Camera comes with a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS lens. It gives you a 35mm format equivalent of 24-75mm for portrait to landscape shots. Its built-in Optical Steady Shot image stabilization minimizes camera shake that results in blurring giving you sharp images.
