Sony has launched new A6300, which is claimed to be the world’s fastest autofocus camera. This camera has an unrivalled 4D FOCUS system that can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds which is the world’s fastest AF acquisition time. The A6300 boasts of having the world’s highest number of AF points on any interchangeable lens camera with an incredible 425 phase detection AF points that are densely positioned over the entire image area.
Sony A6300 boasts of a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines high-speed phase detection AF with extremely accurate contrast AF which allows it to capture and lock on to moving subjects in as little as 0.05 seconds. The camera’s High-density Tracking AF technology positions 425 phase detection AF points over nearly the entire field of view, allowing it to accurately focus throughout a wide area – even on small, fast objects that other cameras would fail to recognise, as claimed by Sony.
Other enhancements to the A6300 include silent shooting functionality, the ability to use AF in focus magnifier mode, expanded flexible spot AF, Eye AF in AF-C mode and more.
The ?6300 features a new 24.2 MP sensor that is an ideal match for its BIONZ X image processing engine. The BIONZ X processor features an upgraded image processing algorithm designed to maximize the sensor’s overall capabilities.
The new A6300 offers internal 4K movie recording in Super 35mm format. When shooting in 4K, the camera uses full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 20 megapixels of information – approximately 2.4X (6K equivalent) as many pixels as 4K (3840 x 2160) UHD and then oversamples the information to produce high quality footage with exceptional detail and depth.
The A6300 also comes equipped with a microphone line input that accepts external microphones and supports XLR input with Sony’s XLR adapter kit, as well as Gamma Display Assist, a new function that allows users to monitor images or check focus when recording S-Log movies. The A6300 camera is equipped with a high contrast, high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder with approximately 2.4 million dots that offers exceptional corner-to-corner visibility.
This camera has magnesium alloy design. It can be customised to fit nearly any shooting style or preferences, with 9 customisable buttons that one of 64 different functions can be assigned to.
It is also Wi-Fi and NFC compatible and fully functional with Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile application available for Android and iOS platforms, as well as Sony’s growing range of PlayMemories Camera Apps, which add a variety of creative capabilities to the camera. It also supports QR code for easy connection to non-NFC smart phones.
The newly launched Sony A6300- ILCE-6300L/B IN5 (with SELP1650 lens) is priced Rs. 74,990 and is available in India at leading electronic stores across the country.
