Sony Alpha A6300 Unique Features

The device comes with updated BIONZ X processing engine. That can squeeze all the goodness out of the new sensor, with particular focus on low-noise, high-resolution results in the upper range of the camera's ISO 100-51,200 sensitivity span. Sony has also equipped the camera with its 4D Focus system, with 425 phase-detect AF pixels that reach almost to the peripheries of the frame. This is the highest number of phase-detect points we've seen on an interchangeable-lens camera to date. Besides, its battery life has also been boosted, with 350 frames quoted when using the viewfinder and 400 frames when using the LCD screen.
