High-end model of mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera “α6300”. Equipped with an original AF system “4D focus”, 425 points of image plane phase difference detection AF sensor and 169 points of contrast detection AF sensor, which are the world’s largest (according to the company’s research), are arranged in almost the entire area of ​​the screen, By locating the ranging points at high density, the subject can be captured with higher precision.

In addition, the fast hybrid AF system that uses phase difference detection AF and contrast detection AF together and the high-speed processing of the image processing engine “BIONZ X” optimized for the “α6500” realizes the world’s fastest 0.05 second AF (according to the company). Realization. High-density AF tracking technology unique to the image plane phase difference detection AF system is also adopted.

Furthermore, in addition to high-speed continuous shooting using the after-view method of up to 11 frames / second, live view display with reduced display lag is achieved up to approximately 8 frames / second in the continuous shooting mode “Hi”. The continuous shooting speed in the live view mode can be selected from three levels of about 8 frames, about 6 frames, and about 3 frames / second according to the shooting scene. In addition, the large-capacity buffer memory of the front-end LSI enables continuous shooting of up to 307 shots (approximately 36 seconds), making it possible to capture an instant more reliably.

It also features a built-in optical 5-axis image stabilization function that corrects camera shake. This is the first Sony APS-C image sensor camera equipped with the optical 5-axis image stabilization mechanism used in the “α7 II”, “α7R II” and “α7S II” compatible with 35mm full size. The camera stabilization unit is built into the camera body, while maintaining the same size as the “α6300” by developing a new mechanism including a shutter unit.

The rear monitor is equipped with a 3-inch wide LCD (approximately 920,000 dots) that is tilt-type and can be moved about 90 degrees above and below about 45 degrees. In addition to being equipped with a touch focus that focuses intuitively by simply touching the subject on the screen screen, it also has a touch pad function that traces the screen with a finger like a touch pad while looking through the viewfinder.

With the movie function, high-resolution 4K movie in super 35mm format can be recorded in the main unit. By reading all pixels without pixel addition using the APS-C sensor, a rich amount of information, approximately 2.4 times the number of pixels required for 4K (3840 x 2160) images (equivalent to 6K), is condensed and 4K images are output. The oversampling effect achieves 4K video quality with overwhelming resolution.

It also supports the XAVC S format, which is an extension of XAVC used for professional video production for consumer use. 4K 30p / 24p recording and full HD 120p recording can record high-quality images at a high bit rate of 100Mbps, and full HD 60p / 30p / 24p recording at a high bit rate of 50Mbps, realizing beautiful images with high definition and little compression noise. In addition, the video function is equipped with up to 5 times slow motion and up to 60 times quick motion shooting functions.

The body uses a lightweight and highly rigid magnesium alloy to achieve both high robustness and light weight. In addition to a design that takes into account dust and drip proofing, a high-rigidity mounting structure was adopted for use with a variety of lenses. In addition, a new low-vibration, high-durability shutter that has achieved release durability of approximately 200,000 times (when testing the electronic first curtain shutter under Sony internal test conditions) has been newly added. By adding a brake mechanism before the travel of the rear curtain of the shutter is completed, the occurrence of blur due to the travel of the shutter is reduced, and the shutter sound is reduced.

Other recording media include SD / SDHC / SDXC memory cards (UHS-I compatible) and Memory Stick PRO Duo / PRO-HG Duo. The battery uses a rechargeable battery pack “NP-FW50”. The number of still images that can be shot is about 310 when using the viewfinder and about 350 when using the LCD monitor. It also supports Wi-Fi and NFC.

The body size is 120 (width) x 66.9 (height) x 53.3 (depth) mm and weighs about 453 g (including battery and Memory Stick PRO Duo).
