Sony A6300 Reviews


The Sony A6300 is by all measures an outstanding mirrorless compact camera. It should be at the top of my shortlist for a new camera. However, I quickly discarded it because Sony has a very poor line-up of lenses for this camera. You are basically forced to buy their full-frame lenses, which are very large, heavy and expensive and that goes against my goal of having a complete system that weighs no more than 5 pounds. Sony also misses the mark on the ergonomics as this camera is the most pleasurable to work with. It’s really a high-performance imaging computer slammed into a small body without too much thought.

Still, it is a camera that is worth considering, especially if you are into video or sports/action photography. If you are interested in buying one, I recommend you buy from the most reliable source, B and H.

If you want to save some money, you can still get the A6000 which is very similar, at less than half the price.

Sony A6300 Video Review – Frustratingly Awesome. I think this guy hits the nail on the head: great image and video quality, but serious ergonomics and technical limitations as well as a very poor selection of APS-C format lenses.
