With 425 phase-detection AF points, continuous shooting at 11fps with autofocus, a 24.2-million-pixel APS-C CMOS sensor, 4K video capture and a whole host of other features, the Sony Alpha 6300 takes APS-C compact system cameras to a new level. Richard Sibley puts it through its paces.
Sony Alpha 6300 review – Video
A few years ago, Panasonic was racing away with the market for those who wanted to shoot stills and video, but Sony’s Alpha 7 series of camera has changed all that. And now Sony seems to be standardising a number of features across its camera range. So it is no surprise to see that not only does the A6300 record 4K video, it also has a huge range of other features, such as Picture Profiles that allow you to shoot with an S-Log2 or 3 contrast curve, zebra patterning, smooth AF during video, as well as a 100fps Full HD footage option for converting video to 4x slow motion. An external microphone socket also features on the side of the camera, although sadly there is no headphone socket for audio monitoring.
