Product Overview

Sony a6300 is a mirrorless camera in the Sony E-mount system. Introduced by Sony in 2016, it comes with an APS-C sensor with 24 MP (6000 x 4000) resolution and a 2.36 million-dot EVF.
The camera has a usable battery life, though a second battery may be a good thing to keep in your camera bag. The 11.0 fps burst rate serves enthusiasts well enough, though some professionals may find it limiting.
The Sony a6300 comes with 425 autofocus points.

Sentiment Score 82%
Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
Sony’s apps aren’t always accessed or adjusted in an intuitive manner. Instead of integrating new functions into the existing menus, they’re all kept in a dedicated Apps section. Once you fire-up an App, you’ll find it has its own multi-page menu system. Sony really needs to think more carefully about how the Apps integrate with the camera.
