Its only been about 2 years since the release of the a6000 but the consumers wanted more and newer features. Now Sony’s new a6300 might just be the best 4K camera for only $1000. Keep reading to find out more.
Sony claimed in the announcement that this revolutionary camera can lock focus on one of its 425 AF points in just 0.05 seconds and said that its “the fastest autofocus in the world”. It has a 24-mp APS-C sensor it can also capture 4K video at 30 fps and bitrate of up to 100 megabytes per second and 1080p video at an amazing 120 fps. This camera also can shoot 11 fps in burst mode, and has a wide ISO range which goes from 100 to even 51200. Sony also said that they will start shipping around March at $1,000 for the body and $1,500 for the body and 16-50mm kit lens.
Sony also announced a new lens for its G Master line. There are 3 types which are 85mm f/1.4 lens, 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. The first one is priced at $1,800 and the second one at $2,200. The 70-200mm f/2.8 will be the only lens not available in March.
Sony did a great job making this new camera and probably will/made the customers with a6000 jump up in excitement. This camera also perform better than its competitors the Panasonic GH4 and Panasonic G7. The GH4 and G7 both have only 16 mp micro four thirds sensors. I am searching for a camera personally and I am considering this as a great option even though it has a high price point.
