Sony Electronics has introduced the latest addition to their lineup of mirrorless cameras, the α6300 model.
The Sony α6300 camera boasts an impressive 4D FOCUS™ system that can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds. It has an incredible 425 phase detection AF points that are positioned over the entire image area – the world’s highest number of AF points on any interchangeable lens camera.
The α6300 comes with a newly developed 24.2 MP APS-C sized Exmor CMOS sensor that works together with a BIONZ X image processing engine to produce outstanding image quality throughout the entire ISO sensitivity range ISO 100 – 51200. It can also shoot and record high resolution 4K video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning in the popular Super 35mm format.
“The α6300 is yet another example of the dominant innovation that Sony continues to bring to the industry, especially from the mirrorless space,” said Neal Manowitz, Vice President of Digital Imaging at Sony Electronics. “With this new model, we’ve combined the world’s fastest and most extensive AF system with a superb image sensor and many of our most advanced imaging and video technologies, creating a package that can far exceed the performance of any DSLR in its class. This camera connects you with the action like never before.”
The α6300 is compatible with Sony’s growing lineup of α lenses including the new premium G Master™ lenses also announced today.
The Sony α6300 will be available in March and will sell for around $1,000 for the camera body and $1,150 with a 16-50mm F3.5 – F5.6 kit lens.
