Sony a6300 Mirrorless Camera with 18-135mm OSS

Sony SKU: ILCE6300M/B | Helix SKU: SYILCE6300MB

24.2 MP Exmor® CMOS image sensor

The new 24.2 MP10 Exmor® CMOS sensor raises the bar of imaging performance. Its copper wiring and enhanced circuitry make it possible to lower the wiring layer and boost light collection efficiency, in order to capture low-noise images with a wide sensitivity range up to ISO 5120011. The use of copper raises readout speed as well as the potential of advanced 4K and Full HD 120fps shooting.

High-speed BIONZ X™ image processing engine

How do the superior speed, power and efficiency of the BIONZ X™ image processor unleash the potential and sensitivity of the new image sensor? With an algorithm optimized for the new image sensor to provide stills and movies with unrivaled resolution and reproduce greater texture and detail, particularly at mid-to-high ISO settings

425 phase-detection AF points

With the world's most12 (425)12 focal plane phase-detection AF points helping to provide distinctively wide and dense AF point coverage, the α6300 focuses more accurately, efficiently, and reliably on subjects throughout the frame.

0.0513 s fast AF

The α6300 achieves the world's fastest13 (0.05 s13) AF speed with the enhanced Fast Hybrid AF's integrated autofocusing performance and the uncanny efficiency of the BIONZ X™ image processing engine to handle so much information with astonishing accuracy

High-density Tracking AF Technology

For supremely reliable accuracy and tracking stability, new High-density Tracking AF Technology activates AF points to cover the area around the subject with about 7.5 times as much density as the 6000. Only this focal plane phase-detection autofocus function can seamlessly activate AF points and track subjects moving within frame with such unerring precision.

High-speed live-view continuous shooting

Clearly capture action with high-speed continuous shooting at up to 11fps. Or choose among three speeds up to 8fps, according to the shooting situation, for live-view continuous shooting with very little lag on the EVF or LCD screen, to get the sense of immediacy of shooting with an optical viewfinder.

Focal plane phase-detection AF for A-mount lenses

The α6300 offers focal plane phase-detection AF even when an A-mount lens14 is mounted using a mount adapter (LA-EA3) from Sony. So you can take advantage of the autofocus system’s uniquely wide coverage provided by 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points, as well as fast, fluidtracking performance when shooting with other lenses as well as E-mount lenses.

XGA OLED Tru-Finder™

The α6300 introduces a high-contrast, high-resolution, high-visibility XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ that reproduces darkness and color in very fine detail, as well as a mode to display images at the higher frame rate of 120fps (100fps), so you can see action smoothly and track it easily on this electronic viewfinder.

4K movie recording15

4K movie recording in the Super 35 mm16 format with full pixel readout and no pixel binning allows about 2.4 times17 as much information as is basically required for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). Data this rich is, in fact, equivalent to 6K data, so it clearly conveys the ultimate resolution in 4K images.

Full HD 120fps shooting and 4x/5x slow motion recording

You can shoot high-quality Full HD18 footage, even in Full HD 120fps (100fps) high-speed shooting with AF tracking at a high bitrate up to 100 Mbps. Otherwise, the camera can record 4x/5x slow motion movies internally when the frame rate is set at 30p (25p) or 24p.

S-Gamut/S-Log shooting

S-Gamut/S-Log shooting give you flexibility to make more expressive movies by performing color grading in post-production. The S-Log3 and S-Log2 gamma curves feature wide dynamic range (up to 1300%) to minimize whiteout and blackout. The α6300 even offers impressive 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting.The camera also supports S-Gamut, S-Gamut3, and S-Gamut3. Cine color space from Sony. *S-Log2 and S-Log3 are premised on processing pictures.

Silent shooting

Silent Shooting mode releases the shutter without a sound, even in continuous shooting up to about 3fps with AF/AE tracking, so it's very convenient for shooting indoor performances, outdoor wildlife, and in other situations where silence is essential. To turn this mode on/off more intuitively and less intrusively, assign it to a customizable button.

One-touch remote/One-touch sharing

One-touch remote makes your smartphone or tablet a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to your device for SNS sharing. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile™ app via Wi-Fi® to your NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. No NFC? No problem. New QR code compatibility can also pair the devices.

Enhanced Fast Hybrid AF for movies

Fast Hybrid AF makes movie autofocus exceptionally precise, so it’s especially valuable for 4Krecording. In addition to a very dense phase-detection AF point array, this system in the α6300 features adjustable AF Drive Speed and AF Tracking Sensitivity to help you express more creativity by manipulating focus, as far as conditions and your imagination allow.

AF in Focus Magnifier

You can use autofocus even while enlarging a selected image area on the viewfinder or LCD screen, for finer adjustment of focus, for example. Excellent for macro shooting, when accurate focusing is crucial.

Lock-on AF

This function maintains focus on a moving subject automatically. Simply align the target frame and the subject to be tracked, and press the center button. If you lose track of the subject, the camera can detect that subject and resume the Lock-on AF function when the subject reappears on the screen.

Expand Flexible Spot

When the selected AF point loses track of or is not positioned on a moving subject, Expand Flexible Spot function automatically directs surrounding AF points to restore focus instantly on that subject.

Eye AF in AF-C mode

Eye AF is now available in AF-C mode in this camera. This means it automatically focuses on and even tracks focus on a subject’s eye, as the face moves, extending your freedom to frame a shot. 

High sound quality (microphone terminal, XLR adapter kit) 

In addition to plug-in microphones, the camera supports line input from professional-standard audio devices with XLR terminal, with use of a separately sold XLR adapter kit (XLR-K2M/XLR-K1M) that enables connection with various high-end microphones. That way, you can make fine audio setting adjustments and high-quality/low-noise sound recordings worthy of serious movie shooting.

Clean HDMI output

This function supports 4K and Full HD18, and allows uncompressed movies to be output to an external recorder or monitor. The image can also be recorded in the camera19 even while signals are output using this function.

Gamma Display Assist

With this function, you can view images with natural contrast while recording in S-Log gamma setting, converting S-Log2 and S-Log3 into ITU709 (800%) gamma for monitoring20 images, or checking focus while enlarging an image on the LCD screen or viewfinder.

Enhanced Zebra function

Simplify exposure monitoring, especially when shooting in S-Log gamma setting. Target a video signal brightness level from 0-109%, set a range between +10% and -10% of that value, and zebra pattern indicates areas with that level of exposure within that range. New minimum brightness level setting reliably warns you to avoid blown-out highlights.

Tough magnesium alloy body

With internal frames, rear cover, top cover and front cover constructed of magnesium alloy, the robust, rigid, light body of the α6300 is stronger than that of its predecessors. Designed for solid reliability and steady handling, this compact form readily withstands the rigors of shooting in the field.  

Dust and moisture resistance

Enjoy carefree shooting in tough environments, thanks to comprehensive dust and moisture resistance21 measures that help prevent water and dust from entering the body. These measures include sealing around the buttons and dials, as well as a protective double-layered structure that tightly interlocks panels and components.

Robust lens mount

The strength and rigidity of the camera body and lens mount provide an especially solid foundation for mounting and withstanding rugged use with even large, heavy lenses such as telephoto lenses and lenses preferred for movie shooting.

Power supply via USB 

Camera operation can be powered via USB connection to a PC or mobile battery. This conserves the camera battery, extending the length of time that the camera can be used before the battery is depleted. When the camera is turned off, the battery can be charged via the same connection.

14-bit RAW output

For RAW recording, 14-bit RAW output and 16-bit image processing help preserve maximum detail and produce images of the highest quality with rich tonal gradations. The 14-bit RAW (Sony ARW) format ensures optimal quality for later image adjustment (via Image Data Converter or other software).

ISO Auto Minimum Shutter Speed

Prevent blur in a shot of a moving subject by setting a shutter speed at which ISO sensitivity starts changing when ISO AUTO (while in P or A mode, or in Multi Frame NR) is selected.

File Name Setting

The first three characters of the file name are now customizable on the camera. The file name starts with "DSC" by default, but you can change and register the three characters of your choice. This facilitates the photographers to manage the files easily especially when working with multiple cameras in assignments.

PlayMemories Camera Apps™

Express photographs more creatively with this application download service that lets you add new functions to your camera’s feature set22. Choose among Time-lapse for recording images at intervals and combining them, Smart Remote Control for control of settings from a smartphone or tablet, Sky HDR (high-dynamic-range-imaging), Star Trail, Liveview Grading, Smooth Reflection and other apps. Note: Services availability depends on region.
