4D FOCUS™ w/ world’s fastest autofocus1 and world’s most AF points2
The 6300’s unrivaled 4D FOCUS™ system boasts the world’s fastest autofocus (AF) acquisition time1 that can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds. Italso has the world’s highest number - an incredible 425 -
phase detection AF points2that are densely positioned over the entire image area, and can shoot images at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking. Additionally, the 6300takes full advantage of its enhanced fast
hybrid AF for movies in both HD and 4K. Other enhancements include silent shooting with continuous autofocusand auto exposure, the ability to use AF in focus magnifier mode, expanded flexible spot AF, Eye AF in AF-C mode and more.
High-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking
Clearly capture definitive points of action at extra-high speed at up to 11 fps continuous shooting with autofocus and auto exposure tracking. Experience all the benefits of an electronic viewfinder combined with the immediacy of a through-the-len
optical viewfinder by choosing live-view continuous shooting at up to 8fps. Or go with 11fps continuous shooting for extra assurance of sharp climactic shots. AF/AE tracking performance is incomparably fast, adaptable and nimble with every continuous
24.2 MP of imaging innovation
The newly developed 24.2 MP(approx. effective) APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor featurescopper wiring and enhanced circuit processing that lower the wiring layer and boost light collection efficiency. In conjunction with the BIONZ X image processor, it
minimizes noise throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-512008.The highly conductive copper in the circuitry significantly accelerates readout speedto support 4K movie recording with full pixel readout without pixel binning, Full HD 120fps
shooting and 14-bit RAW output for still images.
Ultimate 4K movie recording5 and more
The 6300 offers internal 4K recording5 in Super 35mm format with full pixel readout, no pixel binning and 2.4x oversampling for the ultimate movie quality. By collecting 20 megapixels (6K equivalent) of information, which is
approximately 2.4x as many pixels as 4K, the 6300 then oversamples the information to produce high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Additional professional video features include; S-Gamut3/S-Log3 and Gamma Display Assist, the
ability to record Full HD at 120 fps for 4x or 5x slow motion HD video, both a mic jack and XLR compatibility via the MI shoe, enhanced Zebra functionality, picture profile settings, as well as Time Code / User Bit, clean HDMI output and much more.
2.4-million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ w/ fast tracking 120Hz.
The 6300 is equipped with a high contrast, high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder with approximately 2.4 million dots that offers exceptional corner-to-corner visibility. There is also a new mode available for the viewfinder that allows display of
images at 120Hz, ensuring that action is displayed smoothly with very few afterimages for the sense of immediacy you get when shooting with an optical viewfinder, making subject tracking through the Tru-finder easier than ever.
Wi-Fi®/NFC™/QR code for easy file transfer and remote control
The 6300 is equipped with an extremely solid magnesium alloy body that’s dust and moisture resistant for extreme conditions. The robust lens mount and refined grip makes it easier to shoot with larger heavier lenses, while the new 2.4-million
dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ with selectable 60fps/120fps refresh rates allow for faster subject tracking. The 6300 can be customized to fit nearly any shooting style or preferences with one of 65 different functions that can be assigned to one of
the 10 customizable buttons. A new shutter release button and mode dial with improved operability add to the refined shooting experience.
Enhanced Operability and Ergonomics
Easily connect with NFC or QR code (for non-NFC devices) to smartphones or tablets with the built-in Wi-Fiand Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile™ application available for Android™ and iOS platforms. Control your camera or transfer files
to your device for fast and easy sharing without the need of a computer. It also supportsSony’s growing range of PlayMemories Camera Apps™, which add a variety of creative capabilities to the camera. Then when you’re done, you can us
the free software to sort and manage your stills and video with PlayMemories Home™ or edit your RAW file with either Sony’s Image Data Converter or Capture One Express (for Sony).
Focal plane phase-detection AF with A-mount lenses10
The 6300 offers focal plane phase-detection autofocus with A-mount lenses10 that have SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) or SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor) and by using a LA-E3 or LA-EA1 (APS C format with LA-EA1) lens mount adaptor.You can take
advantage of the wide AF coverage of 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points, high-speed response, high tracking capability and high optical performance of A-mount lenses.
4x/5x slow motion recordingat 120fps Full HD
Capture high-quality Full HD* footage at 120fps high-speed shooting with a high bit rate up to 100Mbps. The camera can record 4x/5x slow motion movies internally when the frame rate is set at 30p or 24p or use the 120fps footage to edit into slow
motion later on.
High-bit-rate XAVC S™ format for 4K recording
The consumer friendly XAVC S™ format6 supports 4K recording at maximum 100Mbps bit rate as well as Full HD recording at 50Mbps, so the 6300 can capture movies6 filled with finely detailed movement. For efficient handling, XAVC
S™ files are minimized in size using Long GOP data compression, and contained in the widely compatible MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format.
3” LCD screen tilts up and down for easy high and low-angle framing.
The tiltable 3” (921k dots) LCD™ Display makes it easy to photograph over crowds, or objects close to the ground or maybe you just want to get a different perspective. The screen can swivel up approx. 90 and down approx. 45. The
large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies thanks to WhiteMagic™ technology that nearly doubles the brightness of the display through a unique RGBW pixel structure for easier checking of the focus and image details.
Release the shutter without a sound when silence is required, even when continuous shooting with autofocus and auto exposuretracking is engaged. For quicker access, assign Silent Shooting mode to a customizable button.
Autofocus In Focus Magnifier
You can use autofocus even while enlarging a selected image area on the viewfinder or LCD screen, for finer adjustment of focus, for example. This is excellent for macro shooting, when accurate focusing is crucial.
Make it your own with easy button customization
You can assign any of 65 functions to any of 10 customizable buttons as you like. This makes operation more intuitive, quick and easy, and is extra-convenient for accessing such functions as starting and stopping of movie recording and switching
between viewfinder and monitor.
Expand Flexible Spot
When the selected autfocus point loses track of or is not positioned on a moving subject, Expand Flexible Spot function automatically directs surrounding AF points to restore focus instantly on that subject.
Eye AF in AF-C mode
Eye AF (autofocus) is now available in AF-C (continuous autofocus) mode in this camera. This means it automatically focuses on and even tracks focus on a subject’s eye, as the face moves, extending your freedom to frame a shot.
