For the price, the Sony a6300 is a really nice camera. I do wish that the higher framerate would have been a little cleaner and that it took the importance of audio a little more seriously. However, I do suppose there are limitations to what one can ask for when they’re choosing a camera in this budget. All in all, I would have the attest to the camera being a lovely tool for working with and I think it’d work well for both amateur and professional shooters—especially considering the price

As for sports and action shooters, the earlier A6000 may have been no slouch, but I’m genuinely excited by the new capabilities of the A6300. In my brief time with the camera it felt quicker and more confident at tracking subjects, and I’d be happy to sacrifice 3fps for the new live update in the viewfinder. If it performs as hoped in my tests I’ll definitely be upgrading.

In my time so far with the A6300, I can already tell you that I’m impressed. The camera’s autofocus system is as fast as advertised, and it works for both stills and videos. Coming from someone who’s used to the higher-end A7R II or A7S II models, the A6300 feels like an upgrade.
