Sony A6300 is announced!! 4K internal! S-log3!! 1080 120fps! Weather sealed!

At loooooong last the very long awaited Sony A6300 has been announced (along with 3 sweet sweet lenses, that Sony E mount desperately needs).

These specs in particular are juicy:

new 24MP BSI sensor (yay, BSI!)
11fps
4D focus
4K 30fps video (no pixel binning 14 stops dynamic range, 100MPS)
S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log-3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3 profiles
1080p120 slow motion
Under US$1k (I think this price is quite reasonable compared to what a GH4 or NX1 was when first released. Yes, I'd like it to be less! So I can wait, once a sale arrives or it shows up secondhand/refurbished that should shave off a few hundred dollars fo rme)
Weather sealed body
422 over HDMI
Switchable NTSC/PAL (phew!! Thank goodness for that)
14bit photos
Mic jack input.

I no longer want a Sony A7s mk1 secondhand (which is a similar, or greater, price), I think I'll hold out on seeing this A6300 go on sale instead! :-D

I'm blown away by the quality of this. The price point is right and use of my current lenses without the huge 2X crop factor on micro 4/3 cameras. So tempting.

Just use focal reducers and you get APS-C / Super 35 field of view with your m4/3 cameras :)

I use a RJ Lens Turbo:

but sony's mount has been much better at playing nice with canon lenses than with m43. so for those of us with canon glass, the sony is really a win wint

Still, I can imagine a focal reducer for this new Sony will give "full frame" coverage with my Nikkor vintage glass. ;)

Exciting times! I love my Panasonic compact LX100 and was dreaming of my next toy– I mean tool that I would want, (G7, GH4) and then I saw what the Sony A7s II did. This camera seems like a reasonable option.

I'm pretty sure the only thing I could ask for more is the touch screen focusing.

I was just about to purchase the A6000, might get this instead.

Looks like the Aussie price is a bit steep, this is unconfirmed.
Body only: AU$1,400 and AU$1,615 respectively

Now I think at that price I'll stick with the A6000.

I have been looking into getting a new video camera, was kind of decided on not getting one of these for video shooting (I have a 5r and have been thinking of the a7s) but now I kind of want to hold off a bit and see what this little thing can do.

4K is not really a big deal for me and I'm not really ready for that kind of increase in storage, but it seems like the videos from this camera could be quite special.

The inevitable low light tests will seal or break the deal for me.

A little more wait then. Can't hurt.

The forced 2x sensor crop in UHD 30p is a depressing thing. Every other feature is great.

Would be a good 'locked-off' camera to compliment my A7s for church services but still 29 minute clip limit - sigh!

Exciting news but I was expecting Sony to do this ...

One thing i've learnt is not to get too excited. I only JUST purchased my A6000 in November for use on a slider (it replaced my NEX 6). I certainly won't need this new A6300 any time soon. I might treat myself to a second hand one at some point next year or so.

I love it and currentky have a5100 so this 6k jobbie will produce delicious 4k but will it most likely shut down 15 minutes into recording? or have they fixed thatoverheating issue yet with these?

I cannot imagine that Sony would not have addressed the overheating issue with a6300
A couple of clues on their sell sheet are "With a new lower copper wiring layer and processing circuitry that improves light collection efficiency" whereas the previous iiterations had non copper and further the new model is thicker perhaps for better heat dissapation.

If its full readout the bump in IQ is worth the crop, just get a speedbooster. Just my opinion.
