Sony Alpha α6300 Mirrorless Camera – Quick Hands-on

Photo Quality

The quality of the photos I’ve taken on the Sony α6300 are just simply amazing. I’m now able to get that “bokeh” affect, which I was not able to do so on the iPhone. The camera also features a massive 425 phase-detection AF points, meaning images are look more focused and sharp. 

What’s more, I’m now able to film and take photos in low light conditions (below), with the added bonus of full control of ISO settings, 11.0 fps continuous shooting and more. 

For battery life, you’ll get around 350-400 shots from a fully charged battery, which isn’t great, but adequate enough for a day’s shooting.


Video Quality

I have to say, the quality of my video footage is truly excellent. Serious, I’m not joking. The camera has tons of options to enable you to achieve the result you want. You also have the option to record and film in 4K which a great added bonus, mic volume adjustments, white balance and more.


** Video Coming Soon …


When it comes to filming and recording video footage, one of most important feature of this camera in my opinion, is the built-in 3.5mm mic-in jack. This allows you plug in an external mic which really enhances the audio quality. 

Needless to say… from now on, I’ll be using the Sony α6300 for all my photographic and video needs. The only downside is that it doesn’t have touch-screen on the LCD and there’s no headphone jack either.

Note: There have been reports that earlier models had overhearing issues while recording in 4K. Sony have addressed this issue and released a firmware last summer. Apparently, 1080 recording has no overheating problems.
