Sony A6300 review: The A6300's best-in-class images marred by annoying operation


The Sony A6300 experience, as with many of its A series interchangeable-lens camera (ILC) models, feels like soaring through the sky one minute only to smack into a window the next. It flies with a beefed-up autofocus system, excellent 4K video (with...

For testing the camera was used for fast snapping of informal portraits and action shots at an indoor and outdoor event. It was teamed with the full frame 28-70mm FE lens and the results were excellent. Focus is fast and exposure and colour were spot...

Compared with other cameras in this price range the a6300 is short on instantly accessible controls

The a6300 is a fine camera that competes with the Olympus OMD E-M1 ($1300) and the Fujifilm X-T1 ($1138) both of which are configured as more serious cameras. The Sony wins for its 4K video and widescreen monitor and exceptional auto focus function....
