sony_a6300_2Last week Sony China teased an upcoming announcement for the A6100 camera, or at least that’s what we thought. Turns out we were partially right, but instead of the A6100, Sony has instead officially announced the Sony A6300, which presumably is the successor to the Sony A6000 which was launched in 2014.

The good news is that Sony will be maintaining and improving upon some of the features that made the A6000 such a good camera, namely in its autofocusing in which Sony is still boasting that the A6300 has the world’s fastest autofocusing system. To be more specific, Sony claims that the A6300 will be able to lock onto a subject as fast as 0.05 seconds.

In addition, the camera will come with 425 phase detection autofocus points, which once again Sony is boasting that it has the world’s highest number of AF points on an interchangeable lens camera. Other specs and features of the camera include a newly developed 24.2MP sensor and a BIONZ X image processing engine.

It can also shoot as many as 11fps with continuous autofocusing and exposure tracking, an ISO range of 100-51,200, a XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder, a tilting LCD display, a magnesium alloy body, and the ability to shoot in 4K. It can also shoot in Full HD at 120fps. Sony has priced the camera body for $1,000 and $1,150 when paired with a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. The Sony A6300 is expected to be available in March.
