Sony introduces a6300 system camera with autofocus 425 points




Sony will release in March a new compact system camera on the market. The a6300 gets a new 24-megapixel sensor with copper wiring and can shoot in 4K resolution. The chip has 425 of focal points which are distributed over almost the entire sensor surface.

Like the A6000 features the Sony a6300 a CMOS sensor with 24 megapixel resolution APS-C format. However, it is a new chip, which is provided with copper wiring. This results in less resistance than in chips that use aluminum. Therefore, the sensor can be read faster and there is less noise visible at high ISO values. Presumably Fujifilm using the same chip in the X-Pro2. That manufacturer recently revealed details about the sensor and which seem to correspond to the chip in the Sony a6300. The ISO range is from 100 to 51,200, when filming the maximum ISO value to 25,600.

For auto focus makes use of a6300 phase detection points 425 which are integrated on the sensor. These focus points cover almost the whole of the image sensor surface and therefore must follow subjects across the frame are possible. According to Sony a6300 features new technology that improves the focus on tracking significantly over previous cameras.

Just as with the Sony A7R II the phase detection autofocus continues to work with the use of adapters. Sony LA-EA3 adapter Sony A-lenses can be used while maintaining autofocus. In theory, the autofocus will also work with third-party lenses, with the use of a smart adapter, such as that of Meta Bones. Tweakers tried earlier in practice with the Sony A7R II. The maximum shooting speed is 11fps and 8fps at preserving live view display.

The housing of the a6300 appears to be broadly on the body of the A6000. Sony has made some adjustments to the grip and added a switch on the back of the housing. The electronic viewfinder has 2.36 million pixels, which corresponds to a resolution of 1024×768 pixels. The refresh rate of the viewfinder has been improved and now stands at 120fps.

Sony gives a6300 a 4k Movie with 30, 25 or 24fps. The bit rate is just as with the Sony A7R II 100Mbit / s. The camera uses the entire sensor while filming in ultra-HD resolution. The 16: 9 crop of 6000×3376 pixels is read completely and scaled to 3840×2160 pixels. In 1080p resolution the camera can shoot at up to 120fps, accounting for up to 5x slow motion. As with the A7R II of the Slog2- and use may be made Slog3-gamma settings, so that film images can be post-processed expanded afterwards.

The Sony a6300 comes in Europe in March on the market, the body is 1,250 euros costs . A kit with 16-50mm f / 3.5-5.6 lens will cost 1400 euros. That’s more expensive than in the US, where the body will cost $ 1,000. Converted include tax would be around 1100 euros.

Master Sony G lenses for full frame cameras

In addition to the a6300 announces Sony a series of new lenses that are suitable for the cameras with FE-mount. These are the full frame devices like the Sony A7R II. The lenses also fit the Sony a6300 and other devices with APS-C sensor, but are not fully utilized.

The Master G lenses Sony aims for demanding photographers. There are primarily three copies on the market. In March appear FE 24-70mm f / 2.8 GM and 85mm f / 1.4 GM for suggested retail prices of 2400 and 2000 euros. In May, the FE 70-200mm f / 2.8 GM on the market, along with a 1.4x and 2x tele-converter, for an undisclosed price.
