Sony a6300 Announced - 4K Recording & Super Fast AF in Entry-Level Camera

Sony has just announced a new addition to their line of mirrorless cameras: the Sony a6300, an upgrade to the ever successful A6000, featuring high-resolution 4K recording with full pixel readout in Super 35mm, as well as claiming the world’s fastest AF acquisition time—taking as little as 0.05 seconds to lock focus on a given subject.

The XAVC S codec is used during video shooting—allowing recording at 100Mbps for 4K, and 50Mbps for standard Full HD shooting. This is obviously good news for those who do not have the budget or resources for regular 4K shooting.

The Sony a6300 is the first interchangeable lens camera in Sony’s range with an APS-C sized sensor with the ability to record Full HD at 120 fps; allowing footage to be reviewed and edited into 4x and 5x slow mo video files.

Also featured is S-log Gamma recording, providing the Sony a6300 with decent wide dynamic range shooting capabilities.

External microphones can be used in conjunction with the camera, thanks to the addition of a microphone line. The A6300 supports XLR input via the XLR adapter kit.

Interesting to really see sensor low light performance – Everything else on this is a home run.

Okay? Didn’t know that. In the camera world it stands for Auto-Focus, and it was the first thing that came to my mind. Thanks for clarifying though with uh… the urban dictionary (Y)

Wow very excited about this camera. One thing you wrote saying this is the first aps-c camera to shoot 120p hd but correct me if I’m wrong, the samsung nx1 shoots 120p hd and is aps-c as well?

Ajajaja Super Fast ultra Sonic juazzzzzzzz anda what about de Sensor?

I wonder if this will have the AF system of the A7Rmii which allows adapted DSLR lenses to focus at more-or-less native speeds?
One of the reasons I’ve been drooling over an A7R2 is the notion that I could use my A-mount glass without a mirrored adapter or use EOS glass for photos (at least, without waiting 3-5 seconds for the constrast system to attempt focus, which may or may not even be accurate!).

Also, can’t wait to find out if this has the waxy skin bug the A5100 and A6000 still have!

Is 4K and HD from full sensor read out or crop mode?

Oscar M

takes a 6K crop and downscaling it to 4K
for better resolution and reduced moiré

Blame your EU politicians for all their taxes upon taxes and regulations which drive prices sky high vs USA. Next time show your dissatisfaction at the ballot box! And vote for lower taxes and less regulations.
