My DSLR camera is 4 years old, I’ve had a new camera on my wish list for over two years! The high demands of my job and growing tech needs made it even more imperative to get a new camera!
The Sony Alpha a6300 mirrorless camera has been on my wish list since I found all the amazing features packed in a small body! The best of both worlds! I can finally bring it on press trips, to vacations and use it for my daily work to improve the quality of my images and video!
Because of all that and more – and I have only began to learn all the amazing things it can do – I am extremely excited to share all those features which made this camera, my Holiday Top Tech Choice!
I have so much to learn! But here are my absolute favorite features:
Small Body, Powerful Performance
Superior speed, response, and quality in a compact body
I have tiny hands, the size is so perfect and I can finally bring the camera with me on press trips, vacations and every time I have photo needs.
World’s fastest (0.05-s2) autofocus with the world’s most (4253) phase-detection AF points. Love that what you see is what you get as far as the final image!
Check this one out! The ivy was almost 5 feet from me and my lens is not really a high power zoom lens, it’s the awesome zoom feature built into the Sony a6300!
4K recording and movie quality
Advanced 4K FOCUS tracks even fast-moving subjects quickly and precisely. Check out the video below, you will be immersed in the creek behind my home and feel as if you are there, the sounds, the water movement, early fall colors, not one second lost, watching the waterfall video with the Sony Mirrorless Camera is true 4K magic!
High Speed Shooting
High-speed continuous shooting clarifies climactic action, at the touch of a button.
Tilted Articulated Screen
Pulling the articulated screen will help you achieve your vision
Amazing Features Available On The Menu
Multiple features are easily accessible on the menu
Electronic View Finder
Delivers high quality images, giving you the exact view of what the image will look like
Low Light Video
Amazing quality in low light conditions. I had to shoot a video and images for a Halloween Campaign and the Sony had just arrived, so I started shooting with my phone, not one picture came out, so I opened the Sony and used it, literally night and day! Amazing Low Light Video Quality! As if the decor came alive in the pictures and video!
ooohhhhhh! I’m loving that camera! I love a good compact camera that takes amazing pictures.
This camera seems like it can do so much! I’m not big into the photography world, but I know it sure is beautiful! My sister is big in photography and are always doing mini shoots with my son, I’ll have to tell her about this camera and see what she thinks about it! Thanks for sharing!
I’ve heard quite a bit about this camera. I am in the new market for one because I left mine on an int’l flight. 🙁 Wish you would have included more photos you took from this camera so that I could see the quality.
How to Incorporate Fall Into Your Home
I have the a5000 and LOVE it for video… but haven’t had a lot of luck with pictures. I still use my Nikon DSLR for pictures
I’ve been looking for a new camera. This one looks amazing!
I need a camera that is great in low light. This looks like the perfect camera for me!
This Sony look nice! I have a Sony camera too and I love it! It’s small but powerful!
Wow! That looks superb! I love its high speed shooting feature. I also love that it captures the right brightness. Can’t wait to try this camera.
I love my Canon DSLR but I have been into Sony camera. I love how this shoots in 4k!
This camera looks awesome. The pictures resolution looks great. I would definitely consider this for my next camera.
I have yet to get a good photo with my cam after the sun goes down. I’m so jealous of your photos. I’ll be needing a new camera something in the near future and I’ll check this one out.
This looks like a really interesting camera. I really like the different features.
My mom has this camera and loves it! Takes great photos and is the perfect size.
This seems like an awesome camera. The quality of the video is fantastic.
Now this is a neat gadget. I love the smaller size of it!

I love that the Sony has a 4K recording and movie quality as that is something I really need for when I take videos. The camera quality is fantastic as well!
I have heard a lot of people talk about mirrorless cameras. I would love to look into this one!

That sounds like a great product, having a good quality camera is better for it to last several years and give good quality pictures too. DSLR are cool but can be quite pricey and bulky.
It looks like a lovely camera for any vacation :D… I have used a sony camera before 🙂
Sony is one of my favorite brands. I have had several of their cameras, and keep upgrading every few years!

The auto-focus feature sounds amazing. I have a pricey DSLR but it doesn’t auto-focus so when I’m shooting video, it can get blurry at times.
I need a new camera so badly! This looks awesome! I have been searching for the perfect camera but I get all foggy brained with the technical side of it. This looks pretty easy to manage and fun!
I need a new camera!! So, my Nikon D80 has long outgrown its use and I have been shopping around for something new for at least a year now. I appreciate your post and I think I have added two new cameras to my wishlist! Your review and the camera in your hands is helpful as I have little hands and don’t always want to drag around a massive camera.
I’m a canon girl. But this cameral looks great with so many great features. I’m impressed with its low light capabilities.
I am a sucker for a good camera. 🙂 Mine is about 4 or 5 years old and while I dont necessarily need to replace it I do like to have more than 1 available. The pics on the a6300 look really clear!
Thanks for introducing and review of Sony a6300. It is good that you covered all the technical stuff
I love the sound of this, it’s exactly what I’m looking for. Small and one that can perform.
I love this new DSLR you chose. Sony always has superb products (that is why I love my Xperia XZ Premium). The clarity is awesome. I am going to check that Sony a6300 too. Looks like it is very user friendly! I think it is also time for me to get a new camera.
Looks like this camera really captures clear and crisp photos. I currently use a canon but would definitely consider this one if I was going to buy another

This camera is absolutely amazing! I love those special features! Very powerful too!
Lugging around my big, heavy camera gives me total camera envy. That looks so incredible. Your pictures are so clear and your back doesn’t hurt after!
I think this sounds like a really good choice for vacation photos! Being able to record in 4k is an awesome perk!
From what I hear, the days of DSLR are numbered and mirrorless is going to be where it’s at in photography. I’ve heard really great things about the Sony a6300.
My sister has the type of camera and it put my video from my iPhone to shame. It is on my wishlist this Christmas and I think my hubby got it already. ❤️
I am such a photography fanatic. I have to check out Sony a6300 as it sounds awesome.
Oh nice! This sounds like the perfect camera.
I have had a Sony A6000 for a long time and LOVE it. IT really is a great camera especially for bloggers who are on the go. It is definitely better than your cell phone camera!
What a beautiful looking camera and lens. And what great features! Thanks for sharing the details about this great new model.
This looks like the perfect travel camera. I like my heavy camera for at home, but this could be good for out and about.
I’ve also had a camera on my wishlist for a couple of years now. I’ve not heard a Sony Alpha a6300 mirrorless camera. It looks like it takes amazing images. I’m always looking to improve upon my picture taking skills. I think a good camera really helps out a lot. That is the best place to start.
The low light quality is truly amazing. Mine are always grainy and bland of color. I love that you don’t have to put a new lens on to zoom.
Sony always seems to be on the cutting edge of technology. With all the features you’ve highlighted, you can’t go wrong. Your exceptional photos are proof positive! Guess what’s now on top of my Holiday Top Tech List?!
That looks like a great camera for taking to outings and events … it would be really easy to pop in a purse or bag.
Tiny hands is something we have in common. The size of cameras has always been a tough issue for me but you have to just go with it until now! Love that camera.
I’ve always been a fan of Sony camera. I really like the video quality of this model. I’m adding this to my wish list and hopefully I’ll get it as a gift this holiday. Thanks for sharing!
I have the a7ii and I love it. I have heard great things about this one too!
I love the look and size of this camera. I also have small hands and struggle with a bigger camera. I would love to give this camera a try.
This looks like an awesome camera! I need a smaller camera than my current one for traveling and this might fit the bill.
I have been deciding whether I need a camera when I have a nice camera feature on my phone. This camera and your pictures are so nice so i would get this in a flash.
Now that is an amazing looking camera, I love how small and compact it is but it can most definitely take some beautiful looking photos.
This looks like a great camera. I have also been looking for an upgrade and this one looks like it would be right up my alley.

I have looked into it, that is a wonderful camera. A great item for a wish list.
It really is a wishlist item isn’t it – I think it has already been added to mine as I could do with a smaller camera.
I like the small size. I do need to get a camera as right now all my photos are on my tablet.
On one hand I can totally understand how sad it is to stop using your DSLR which you used for years, but other hand, change is essential! That 4k video was actually magic! The clarity is so great! I’m amazed!! 🙂
What an impressive camera, I wouldnt mind having this one, the size is perfect.
I need a new camera and I have one on my list. I am definitely going to check out this one and see if this one better. It looks like I will.
This looks like a great toy ) I’m looking for a new camera at the moment. I currently have Nikon, but it’s one of the older models… I’m ready for an update )
I had no idea Sony had such great cameras. I have a nikon and my brother a canon. I am definitely gonna do more research. This one sounds really nice.
What I like about this is the size. You mentioned that you have smaller hands and it works nicely for you. I have to do some research into the actual product, but does it come with wifi so when you take photos or videos for social media we can quickly upload them to the platform we want?
Husband is looking for a new camera so will have to show him your post. Sure he will be very interested in this camera.
Wow this Sony camera sounds amazing! I’ve been on the lookout for a vlogging camera, this one is a contender.
Cool, this looks like a great camera! I know Sony is a great brand. I might have to pick this up for myself or as a gift.
This looks like a GREAT camera! I love Sony and trust the brand, and I like all the features you laid out, too.

I’ve had a Sony Mirroless for about 1.5 years now and I love it. It’s so much simpler to bring it along as opposed to toting along the full sized dslr.
I’ve heard great things about the Sony mirrorless camera. It’s perfect for traveling because I hate traveling with my DSLR.

I need to give this camera a closer look. The picture quality is great, and I love that less bulky body. Bulky bodies are my main complaint about most cameras.
I am with you on that it can be awful when a camera has a bulky body, it can really make it difficult for it to be used.
I already have a camera, but this one sounds really nice. If I am ever in the market, I will check out this one 🙂
Sony camera is one of the best. This model looks like if those from Fujifilm . I will check this unit coz I need another camera 🙂
