Sony A6300 Sensor Review at DxOMark: Sony’s Best APS-C Sensor to Date


DxOMark posted the Sony A6300 sensor review and test results showing that the new sensor in Sony A6300 is Sony’s Best Performing APS-C Sensor!!!

The A6300 achieved a DxOMark score of 85 points, making it currently the best-performing APS-C size sensor in the company’s range. It shows performance gains over both the 24-Mpix A6000 and the A77 II, as well the highly-regarded NEX-7 (introduced back in 2011). The sensor has excellent low noise levels at base, resulting in a wide dynamic range of +13.7 EV, yet maintains both a relatively wide dynamic range and low noise at high ISOs, especially when compared to those earlier models.


From DxOMark Conclusion:

Sony’s A6000 sensor was class-leading when it was introduced, and while the sensor in the A6300 is in a similar position, it’s not alone. Nikon’s sensors in the D7200 and the more cost-conscious D5500 perform similarly. In terms of specifications, the A6300 looks attractive, and for some metrics, its sensor performance, dynamic range in particular, can match the 24-Mpix full-frame A7 II. However, the price seems somewhat at odds with rival offerings. Even taking into account the premium for its 4K video and AF capabilities, it’s much harder for it to compete at this level. But as far as sensor performance goes, it doesn’t get a lot better.

The Sony A6300 has the world’s fastest autofocus speed and most extensive autofocus coverage plus newly developed 24.2 MP APS-C Sensor, high resolution 4K video recording. And, Sony A6300 mirrorless camera gets an impressive 85% overall score and gold award from the experts at DPReview, and it is a tremendously capable camera, whether you’re looking to shoot stills or video.

The Sony a6300 are selling like hot cakes and it is one of the best selling mirrorless cameras at Amazon.
