Sony released a new mirorless camera in February and in the US buyers might get their hands on it by the end of this month.
The model is an improved version of the Sonya6000, which I tested a couple of times and for such a small camera the quality and overall usage stunts me every time.
The new model is called A 6300 and it comes with a ultra-thin sensor, incredible autofocus and most importantly a Slug2 and Slug3 gama curves.This means you can even pop the ISO up to 3200 and your video will be noise-free (who doesn’t want that?).
Video qualiy is brilliant even in low light situations, and is also capable of 4K Video.
This camera will allow you to shoot videos at 120fps! Editing wise the files will be compatible with any editing software, is true that you might need a bit more space on your hard drive for the files, but hey…if you want the best out of the best…
The overall performance of the camera can easily be compared to a full frame sensor. For example it is predicted that this new toy might even surpass the Sony full frame A7sII.
The design is identical to the A6000 so it will be easy to make the switch from that version to the new one.
The new model will still work with E-mount sony lenses, so if you want to upgrade from the A6000 you can still keep your lenses, though you might want to invest in some more professional ones.
You can pre-order it already, and the price for body only is now at about £1000, which again in my opinion for such a great camera, it’s worth every penny.
Already on the internet you can find video samples that will leave you speechless
