The Sony a6300 is making big boasts about speed, and if the earlier model is any indication, should offer pretty good image quality to boot. In Sony's tests, the a6300 locked focus as fast as .05 seconds--a pretty quick focus if Sony's lab tests hold up in real world shooting. That quick autofocus is boosted with a huge 425 autofocus points for enhanced focus tracking.
Besides just the quick focus, the Sony a6300 offers burst speeds up to 11 fps, which is pretty fast for a $1,000 camera with an APS-C sensor. The older a6000 offered a similar burst speed, but the a6300 improves the autofocus.
Along with what should be solid imaging performance, the a6300 also now offers 4K at 30 fps. Or, users can prioritize motion with a 120 fps high speed video that's ideal for creating slow-mo footage.
All that speed and video capability is wrapped up in a magnesium alloy body that's also sealed against dust and moisture. There's a viewfinder to the left and a tilting LCD screen. Wi-fi and NFC are also included.
The Sony a6300 offers solid speed with a good sensor. Priced at $1,000 for the body, the cost isn't too steep for the feature set either. The a6300 compares pretty well with the market so far, with a larger sensor than Olympus's line and the 4K capable Panasonic GH4. Fujifilm sensors produce excellent color and image quality, and while the X-T1 offers more physical controls, the speed also tops out at a .08 autofocus and 8 fps burst. If speed and portability are at the top of your list, the Sony a6300 is an excellent option.
