Sony a6300 4k

Recommended Posts

14 Stops, amazing, if true. Proper game changer.

How it will pack down into an 8 bit 4:2:0 codec will be an issue, but sounds promising.

Sony quote 13-15 stops for all their recent cameras so that's nothing new. I would expect it to perform similarly to the A7R II in its Super 35mm crop mode.

What I like about the A6300 is more the promising new AF tracking system and the amount it packs in for a price.

New low(ish) budget king!

Ahh right.... shame. I know they claim big numbers for the sensor, but didn't think they actually marketed that those numbers were for video too!

Interesting price/specs... But i'm not buying another Sony unless the IQ improves dramatically. Screw 8 bit, 4:2:0 and poor colour science.

Well, one more thing to point out.  No fully articulating screen.  It is so useful on the Panasonics.  Why they have to make this so hard.

Not a lot of real estate for a side hinge unless they made it bigger. I think the small increase in size would be worthwhile.

If low-light is comparable, the only disadvantage against the A7r II in APS-C crop mode is the missing IBIS and the smaller EVF (1cm vs 1.3cm). That's probably something people could handle if it means saving 2000 €. Really interesting I have to say.

At loooooong last the very long awaited Sony A6300 has been announced (along with 3 sweet sweet lenses, that Sony E mount desperately needs).

These specs in particular are juicy:

new 24MP BSI sensor (yay, BSI!)
11fps
4D focus
4K 30fps video (no pixel binning 14 stops dynamic range, 100MPS)
S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log-3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3 profiles
1080p120 slow motion
Under US$1k (I think this price is quite reasonable compared to what a GH4 or NX1 was when first released. Yes, I'd like it to be less! So I can wait, once a sale arrives or it shows up secondhand/refurbished that should shave off a few hundred dollars fo rme)
Weather sealed body
422 over HDMI
Switchable NTSC/PAL (phew!! Thank goodness for that)
14bit photos
Mic jack input.

I no longer want a Sony A7s mk1 secondhand (which is a similar, or greater, price), I think I'll hold out on seeing this A6300 go on sale instead! :-D

looks great on paper. As ever with Sony the colour's are horrible and this coming from someone who owns an A7S. I can't get excited about a camera that produces such sub standard skin tones in comparison to what Canon can do. You can spot a Sony camera a mile off graded or not.

No in-camera stabilization, no twin dials, no mention of better color rendering, expensive lenses without IS, weak budget lenses compared to other systems...for a company known for pushing the envelope, Sony is persistently deaf.

It's consistent with the A7 line offering. I think many people had unrealistic expectations, this is a 1000$ consumer camera, they won't go and use it to kill off their premium line with it.

I don't think this is the camera they expect people to buy the G Master lenses for. 1000$ body, 2400$ 24-70 2.8?

sony keeps making perfect specd consumer cameras that somehow don`t work that well.

I hate a7s footage as it breaks just before I get the colors right. 10bit via hdmi to a prores recorder and it would be a dream and yes, I know I am nitpicking here as in what do you expect for a 1k camera...well, I expect a usefull codec to grade that slog, otherwise just leave it out.
