Sony has today unveiled a compact system camera that they claim to be the “world’s fastest autofocus” at 0.05 seconds, called the Sony A6300.

It also features 425 phase-detection AF points that can”activate a large number of AF points surrounding a subject and intelligently adjust them in accordance with the subject’s motion,” this comes alongside a 24.2 megapixel APS-C sensor, with Sony’s ultra high definition drive to allow it to shoot 4K video.

And this is with the Super 35mm format, so there’s no pixel binning or cropping.

Sony also says that the A6300 can shoot at 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus, or 8 frames per second with the LCD screen or viewfinder. If you use the 11fps High-Speed mode the scene will black out as you are shooting.

There is a built-in viewfinder that uses an OLED panel with 2.4m dots and the ability to refresh at 120fps. The LCD screen has also been mounted on a tilt-angle bracket to allow for a range of shooting positions.

The camera is also compatible with Sony’s E-Mount lenses as well as A-mount lenses that have full autofocus compatibility. In-built you will also find Wi-Fi sharing and NFC compatibility.

No UK pricing has been announced yet, but we know the camera is €1,250 for the body-only model in Europe.
