Sony Philippines unveiled the new A6300 mirrorless camera at a photography workshop in Taguig City.
To launch the product, Sony has partnered with today’s hottest photographers such as Charisma Lico, Jelito de Leon, Sheng Gonzales, and Kimi Juan.
This new breed of brand ambassadors will be conducting a series of workshops to aspiring photographers, sharing their tips and tricks while showcasing the capabilities of the A6300.
Design-wise, the new A6300 camera is very light but at the same time it feels solid thanks to its robust, magnesium alloy design.
The camera adds a digital level gauge as well as upgraded dust and moisture resistance, a reinforced lens mount structure and a new shutter release button and mode dial with improved operability and grip.
In addition, the new Sony A6300 boasts a number of features that make it a desirable product for any enthusiasts:
Sony A6300 focusing system
The A6300 comes with a 4D focus system that can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds, touted as the world’s fastest AF acquisition time.
In addition, 425 phase detection AF points allow for finer control over the focus area, also touted as the world’s highest number of AF points on any interchangeable lens camera.
With this system, the A6300 can shoot up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking.
Full live-view continuous shooting via the Tru-Finder or LCD screen is also possible at up to 8 frames per second.
Sony A6300 image sensor
The Sony A6300 features a powerful APS-C sized 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS sensor to match the BIONZ X image processing engine, allowing oustanding image quality from ISO 100 all the way to ISO 51200.
The new image sensor employs copper wiring in its structure, which improves light collection efficiency and significantly accelerates readout speed.
Sony A6300 video recording
The A6300 offers internal 4K movie recording in Super 35mm format, which uses the full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 20 megapixels of information – approximately 2.4x (6K equivalent) as many pixels as 4K UHD.
It then oversamples the information to produce high quality footage with exceptional detail and depth.
Sony A6300 price and availability
The Sony A6300 comes with a 16-50mm kit lens and is priced at Php 64,999 (Php 56,999 for body only). It will be available in Sony Centres and all authorized Sony dealers nationwide starting mid-April 2016.
