Sony Introduces New α6300 Camera with World’s Fastest Autofocus

New Mirrorless Camera Features World’s Fastest AF speed[1] and Highest Number of AF points[2] plus Newly Developed 24.2 MP APS-C Sensor, High Resolution 4K Video Recording and More. The Php 64,999 Sony α6300 comes with kit lens (16-50mm). Php 56,999 for body only.

The brand new α6300 boasts of its unrivalled 4D FOCUS™ system that can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds, the world’s fastest AF acquisition time[1]. Additionally, the α6300 has an incredible 425 phase detection AF points that are densely positioned over the entire image area – the world’s highest number of AF points on any interchangeable lens camera[2], and can shoot images at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure TRACKING.

The impressive new mirrorless model has the ability to support full live-view continuous shooting on the Tru-Finder™ or LCD screen at up to 8 frames per second, ultimately producing a real-time shooting experience that combines all the benefits of an electronic viewfinder with the immediacy of a through-the-lens optical viewfinder.

Unrivalled AF Performance

Building upon the acclaimed 4D FOCUS performance of the α6000 model, Sony’s new α6300 utilizes a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines high-speed phase detection AF with extremely accurate contrast AF and allows it to capture and lock on to moving subjects in as little as 0.05 seconds[1]. 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 recognize.

The α6300 debuts a new high-density tracking AF technology that significantly improves subject detection and tracking performance. This new technology can quickly activate a large number of AF points surrounding a subject – approximately 7.5 times more density than the α6000 – and intelligently adjust them in accordance with the subject’s motion. This is a particularly powerful feature when used with high-speed 11 fps continuous shooting or the new 8 fps continuous live-view mode, which provides 100% accurate framing for fast moving subjects on the LCD screen or viewfinder.

Other enhancements to the α6300 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.

Powerful 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Processor

In order to maximize efficiency and overall camera performance, the α6300 features a new 24.2 MP sensor that is an ideal match for its BIONZ X image processing engine.

The new image sensor employs copper wiring in its structure, which improves light collection efficiency and significantly accelerates readout speed. The BIONZ X processor features an upgraded image processing algorithm designed to maximize the sensor’s overall capabilities.

Ultimate 4K Resolution and Other Professional Video Capabilities

In another first for non-full-frame Sony interchangeable lens cameras, the new α6300 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[3] (6K equivalent) as many pixels as 4K UHD and then oversamples the information to produce high quality footage with exceptional detail and depth.

Design-wise, the new α6300 camera features an extremely solid feel in hand thanks to its robust, magnesium alloy design. The camera adds a digital level gauge as well as upgraded dust and moisture resistance[4] , a reinforced lens mount structure and a new shutter release button and mode dial with improved operability and grip.

The α6300 comes with kit lens (16-50mm) and is priced at Php 64,999 and Php 56,999 for body only. It will be available in Sony Centres and all authorized Sony dealers nationwide middle of April 2016.
