Latch on to your subject at the speed of sight and pull-off pictures of outstanding beauty with Sony’s A6300 mirrorless camera. Whether it the lightning-fast 4D Focus system, standout image sensor or DSLR-like CMOS sensor, this camera is packed with industry-leading innovation. Use the OLED Electronic Viewfinder to craft your pictures, make pin-sharp movies in 4K, then share your ravishing results wirelessly through Wi-Fi and NFC. Backed by a super-lightweight frame, this is perfect for everything from point-and-shoot holiday snaps to creative-and-complex pro shots. This is bundled with a 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens too, so you can get shooting straight out-of-the-box.
Gorgeous Photo Quality
The A6300’s large Exmor CMOS sensor, giving 24.2MPs to play with, blends beautifully with the revamped BIONZ X processor. The engine’s new design improves light collection efficiency and lets you shoot at up to ISO 51200 with far-less distortion. This way, your shots will look beautiful regardless of how well-lit your scene is. Sony’s mix of power and finesse is a photographic triumph that’s certain to pique your creative interest.
Advanced 4D Focus
Sharpen your subject at the blink of an eye with Sony’s top-notch autofocus (AF) system. Their 4D Focus software packs a massive 425 phase-detection AF points in the image area, so nothing escapes its attention. Furthermore, the insanely-fast 0.05 second AF speed ensures you get your shot every time – even in sudden or fast-moving scenes. With this awesome technology, an amateur can pick up this camera and take photos like a professional with ease.
Fabulous 4K Film-Making
Do yourself a favour and join the 4K Ultra HD revolution. With four-times the resolution of Full HD, you’ll shoot super-sharp clips perfect to play on the big screen. Your shots will get a colour boost too, with Sony’s S-Gamut/S-Log feature. This system amplifies all the different shades to make each frame more expressive and eye-popping. If you take a step-back to Full HD, you’ll be able to shoot at a rapid 120fps with AF tracking, or make fun slow-motion clips.
Tilting Screen & OLED Viewfinder
With the LCD screen flipping up 90-degrees and down 45, you’ll get into tight angles easier without losing compactness. Furthermore, the OLED viewfinder features real-time data and 100% coverage. This way, you’ll plan, track and preview your shots with remarkable accuracy.
Slick, Solid & Intuitive Interface
The sturdy magnesium alloy body has a nifty ergonomic grip so your hand will mould around it comfortably. You’ll have no problem using large lenses either with the A6300’s super-strong mount. Furthermore, all 9 of the buttons can be assigned to any of the 64 functions, so you can tailor the set-up to your needs.
Peerless Smart Features
With built-in Wi-Fi and NFC, you’ll hook this up to your smart device and share your content wirelessly at the touch of a button. Simply tap your device on the camera, or generate a QR code for non NFC-ready devices, to get your photos shared seamlessly. Furthermore, you can download Sony’s cloud service, PlayMemories Online and a rich range of PlayMemories Camera Apps to add even more functions to your camera.
Versatile Bundled Lens
With the included 16-50mm Super Zoom lens, you’ll be shooting anything from intimate portraiture to sweeping cityscapes in an instant.

Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture.
