The $500 Sony a5100 is an entry level mirrorless camera with an ecosystem you can grow into. Thinking of buying a new TV or monitor but feeling lost with all of the terminology like 4K and Ultra HD? If you’ve never taken mirrorless cameras seriously before, the Sony A6300 might just make you think again. Most of us own cameras with small cropped sensors, which artificially increase focal lengths on full frame lenses. There are only two custom buttons (C1 and C2), alongside a Function menu which can be customized to put features within a few taps. None of the buttons light up, which can make using the A6300 in complete darkness a little tricky to start with. Unfortunately a lack of buttons mean you might have to spend some time in the A6300’s complicated menu system. The main difference between a camera like the A6300 and a digital SLR is the lack of a mirror.
That sensor produces images which are the same size as many full-frame SLRs, resulting in 25MB RAW files. A feature called Eye-AF actively looks for and tracks a subjects eyes, and while it sounds like a gimmick it actually works very well. You can of course go manual too — the A6300 features a manual focus assist which magnifies the viewfinder to better help you pick a point of focus. The size of the camera lends itself well to particular styles of photography, but will probably appeal to anyone who appreciates carrying less equipment and a lighter camera body around with them. Possibly the biggest grip for would-be SLR shooters switching to a mirrorless system like the A6300 is battery constraints, and the A6300 doesn’t make any leaps in this department. If you’re not bothered about prints, the relatively clean and grain-free higher ISO values let you shoot at a lower aperture (higher f-stop number, expanding your area of focus) or faster shutter speed even in low light.
You’ll need a fast UHS-I class-3 SDXC or SDHC card to capture 100megabit 4K video, but the results are worth it. The problem is well-documented online, and though the camera didn’t flat out refuse to work, it did get warm while shooting 4K footage.
As such, many enthusiasts who have relied on the mirror may be tempted by a discreet mirrorless setup that offers high quality photo and video in a smaller package. The 16-50 is a power-zoom, which means it collapses down to a relatively small size when you turn the camera off.
After graduating from a kit lens, you’ll need to decide between a prime lens and a zoom lens.
Though there's no photographic rulebook when it comes to focal length and aperture, there are a few best practices to remember. The E-mount is relatively new, and as such there’s not a huge number of lenses to choose from at this stage.
You can also find adapters for existing lens systems that allow you to use your old lenses on newer sony cameras, but keep in mind that many of these add bulk to a system that shines for its compact nature. I think today mirrorless cameras is the best that can be in photography industry, even Haselblad made mirrorless camera and Sony a6300 are representative of the best in class.

I’m giving this equipment review thing a try starting with the Fujifilm XF 10-24mm F4 OIS Camera Lens.
If you found my review and photo samples helpful, please consider purchasing these products through the links below or above in my review. Comparing the size to its Nikon equivalent makes it hard to complain about the size of the 10-24.
I’m sure once I sell it I’ll miss it for certain situations… Have fun with your fisheye! So do you have the 14 and 10-24 on your cameras simultaneously or do you just like having the option of each? Almost the whole external barrel is a zoom ring, good in theory, bad in practice: it is hard to move and feels very plastic on plastic. The zoom movement expands the internal barrel 53mm to the front, also moving the lens hood and filter threads for a total of 26cm. The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is quiet and smooth, but the manual focusing ring is tough and “dry”, although it doesn’t suffer from play between the pieces.
The VRII stabiliser is rated at 4 stops by Nikon and 2.5 stops by CIPA, and is one of the weirdest modules I’ve ever used. At the front the o67mm filters are uncommon on Nikon’s lineup but cheaper than o72mm and up, a good thing. Overall the AF-S 70-300mm G is fair for its price but Nikon always leave me with the impression it could do better on the intermediary lineup. With a relatively complex 17 elements in 12 groups formula, two ED glasses and Super Integrated Coating, the AF-S 70-300mm G optical performance can impress if you keep your expectations low. 100% crop, it doesn’t matter the focusing distance, the resolution is impeccable on the center frame.
My only criticism goes to the out of focus quality, also referred to as bokeh, that looks like a magnifying glass instead of blurring the background away. 100% crop, perfect eye rendering, but notice how the side hair looks under a magnifying glass. Lateral chromatic aberrations are typical of telephoto distances, with coloured lines around the edges that are easy to fix in post. 39 quick golf instruction tips to fix your golf game and get you of political golf, a book devoted to the worse as the day.

It weighs just over 400g including battery and memory card, but things will obviously get bulkier and heavier depending on the lens you’re shooting with.
The camera even features an in-built pop-up flash, which sits perfectly flush with the body, alongside a hotshoe mount for external speedlights, microphones, lights, and other accessories.
The screen swivels forwards to a 180? angle so you can point and shoot from above, but there’s no ability to pull it out completely for taking selfies (you can use your smartphone to trigger the camera remotely, though).


Fortunately the EVF is fast, bright, and automatically disables the screen when in use thanks to its proximity sensor. One of the upsides to having so few buttons and dials is that you get used to where everything is pretty quickly, in my case a day of shooting. This is nothing new — Sony has been using tabs within tabs on its cameras for years, and this time round things haven’t gotten any simpler. On an SLR this mirror provides a through-the-lens view, so you see exactly what the sensor sees when you hit the shutter button.
The big improvement over the A6000 is the use of copper wiring in the sensor to capture even more light, which results in impressive low light performance and a maximum ISO of 51200.
This is traditionally an area in which digital SLRs dominated, but that day has come and gone.
You can lock focus or exposure using a dedicated button and toggle switch on the back, a feature most digital SLR faithfuls expect to see.
This pushed me to take more daring shots, allowed me to get closer than I would with a large SLR glued to my face, and got me excited about street photography again. I’ve found myself shooting in programmed auto (P mode) a lot, with some time spent in aperture priority for accentuating depth of field and shutter priority when I want some movement in the shots.
Your choice of lens is much more important than many of the on-camera settings, but you can limit max ISO, choose from several different AF and metering modes, and manually adjust EV if you want to. The A6300 charges just like a smartphone, from a USB port using a standard micro USB connector.
If you’re shooting in difficult circumstances — dark alleyways with a fringe of blown out sky, or well-lit streets with dark shadowy corners — the A6300 is rather generous with its dynamic range.
Both HD and 4K video capture modes provide a choice of framerates — 24p, 60p, 100p — and bitrates.
The FE series are designed for Sony’s full-frame E-mount cameras, like the A7 and its derivatives. If you have a large budget then there are some very fast and expensive lenses on offer, like the Vario-Tessar 16-70mm F4 OSS with Zeiss optics which costs as much as the camera itself, but nothing that will satisfy serious sports or wildlife enthusiasts. The A6300 is only as compact as the lens you’re using, and a set of shorter primes or versatile E mount zooms in essence help define who this camera is for. If you purchased an entry to mid-range SLR five or more years ago, there’s a good chance the A6300 is an all-round better camera (sorry about that). I like reviews to use picture samples in real world situations rather than objects on a dusty shelf. Retaining details in the shadows is something I like and this lens held up well with the XE-2. I realize some people won’t care about this but a few times I did want to take a snapshot in a restaurant of some family members. This may just be a drawback from the smaller sensor size, but a group of trees in the distance at 100% crop isn’t very detailed (looks too smooth). I enjoyed my time with this lens but I’m going to sell it for something more compact and less bulky (*see UPDATE 1).
I made notes underneath that I thought would be pertinent and included a few 100% crops here and there.
This lens is much smaller than the full frame Nikon equivalent, which is not surprising, naturally primes will be smaller still. But since I bought the XE-2 to take everywhere, the bigger the lens, the less I’m inclined to bring it with me. I have used the 10-24 in a few professional situations so my dilemma now is that since writing the review I’m torn between selling it or keeping it. Made to be completely automatic, it gets the “G” moniker indicating the lack of manual aperture ring, thus incompatible with older cameras especially from the film era.
The friction between the pieces makes it clear we’re not dealing with metal threads and giant bearings inside. Paired with the D750 on Sao Silvestre’s marathon in Sao Paulo I had no issues following runners with AF-C d-9, for complete sets of 6fps in-focus files. This thread is fixed and won’t rotate like the chaotic intermediary EF 70-300mm, with its rotating front element. Really, this zoom ring is so tight sometimes I find myself turning the camera around the lens, as its grip is larger and better to apply force to. It’s the same performance as the intermediary EF 70-300mm, with nice everyday results, in point with the market it was developed for. My aperture of choice to shoot the Sao Paulo marathon, and the results were excellent rendering facial hair and accessories, in focus due to the great AF-C performance. If on one hand the resolution is great and the depth of field is short at telephoto distances, as soon as your subject move from the focal point it looks like a “cheap glass” rendering. The pair of ED glasses make a good job minimising them and it looks better than even the Canon L, no matter how far I pushed the D750 raw files. So when the AF, the VR (if you’re careful when turning it on) and the images work, it’s a good day.
It is worth noting that the A6000 launched at around $800 with a kit lens, which is about $250 cheaper than what the A6300 is currently going for.
With a size of 1cm, the XGA OLED EVF features a 120hz refresh rate which is great for tracking fast-moving targets, shooting video, and seeing exactly what you’re pointed at even in the brightest of conditions.
For video the A6300 uses a dedicated movie button on the rear-right corner of the unit to start and stop recording (accessible in any mode) — it sits at an awkward angle for my large hands, and I have to loosen my grip on the camera slightly in order to hit it.
The same is true for the size — the camera feels compact coming from even a small SLR, but you soon get used to it. Mirrorless cameras must use an electronic viewfinder — which provides a video feed rather than a reflected image — to provide similar functionality. Shooting in very low light with the not-particularly-fast kit lens, I was constantly surprised how clean the resulting images are. The sensor features 425 AF points with phase-detection for tracking moving subjects with startling precision, even in video mode. That means you can charge it from your laptop, via the included wall charger, or by buying a rechargeable smartphone charger and plugging it in wherever you are. You’ve got a choice of the older AVCD codec, or newer XAVC which records at a higher bitrate, providing more shadow detail and cleaner movement. Some have suggested a firmware update will fix it, others suggest using a USB battery pack or third party grip.
Poor battery life and a limited set of lenses aside, the only real consideration to make is whether or not you need instant-startup or focal lengths greater than 210mm.


To buy 6300 or even A7 series is too expensive for me, so I hope to win this great camera thanks to you. I get annoyed searching for sample images from a lens or camera on Flickr only to find badly exposed, poorly processed photos. This lens saw action in New Orleans, San Antonio, Austin & Gruene, TX, and Asheville, NC. For example, someone walking in the frame and looking blurry while the rest of the picture is sharp. I’m not a pixel-peeper but since this lens can be considered a landscape lens, someday I might like to have photos printed out nice and large. I’m thinking I might not be content with a 12mm since I shot so many 10mm images, with 14mm being my second most used focal length. I’m keeping the 10-24mm for now because the quality is great and the widest lens I have on my full frame setup right now is 24mm.
But it gains the AF-S system with a built-in auto focusing motor, not requiring a camera with a motor to work. The AF-S on the other hand is “fat” from beginning to end, also being 115g heavier at 745g. Try rubbing two sheets of paper together and you’ll hear the same noise I hear when using this MF ring.
The camera locked instantly and followed the subject by color, without missing the point or hunting for focus. When you start the VR before the camera is level and pointed at your subject (like when you “wake” the camera up before you raise it), it can’t detect the frame orientation and won’t stabilise for a few seconds.
It was bad enough I headed to a store and tested other three (!) lenses to make sure that was how it worked. The supplied HB-36 lens hood fixes on its own thread and feels very cheap, with a flexible plastic and plastic matting inside; but it does a good job protecting the front element. I’ve given up on sub-US$1500 Nikkor’s manual focusing rings; if doesn’t have play, it is too tough and noisy. The center resolution is great even wide open; the corners follow the aperture logic (stop it down to raise sharpness), and the contrast works. It was on the same level of awesomeness I got with the top of the line EF 70-300L in New York’s marathon, but here for less than half the price. The out of focus elements are simply too sharp and visible, demonstrating the lesser optical formula.
But on optimised apertures it’s all clear, smooth, with no rollout on skies or walls. It doesn’t bring anything new to its class and really shouldn’t; it’s over a decade old and continues alone on Nikon’s lineup. Fortunately you can put your most oft-used features on a menu activated using the Fn button on the back of the camera.
This isn’t ideal — the door that covers the connectors has to stay open, and you have to lug a portable battery around with you — but it certainly sweetens the deal when it comes to battery life.
This allows you to shoot at lower ISO values, especially useful if you want large, clean prints. For most amateur, enthusiasts, and many pro-level shooters, the answer will be no, and the Sony A6300 ticks a lot of boxes. I crammed a lot of sample photos in ranging from midday, sunset, twilight, long exposure, night, and indoor. It makes the overall handling heavy weighted and one of the reasons this review took so long.
But even the entry level EF 70-300 IS USM sports a much smoother zoom ring, and I blame Nikon for not trying harder. Just don’t expect miracles from its optical performance; a 11x zoom lens begs for aberrations and distortion. It will be recorded in videos and it’s certainly a secondary addition to the usability, in favor of the AF-S motor. It’s easy to work during the day with reasonable ISOs, keeping the aperture wide open and reaching fast shutter speeds.
It’s yet another example that telephoto distances are not that hard to develop and manufacture, and the main usage for such lens. On higher end lens the in focus bits are sharp and flawless, great; and the out of focus areas are smooth and colourful. And as there’s no lateral chromatic aberration correction stopping down, that’s the only reason the close the aperture: exposure, DoF and vignetting control. I didn’t really shoot straight lines to see it, like the horizon or some boring wall, so none of my files required correction.
Al my mirrorless cameras have a Gordy wrist strap that I prefer over neck straps but thats me. Given opportunities to post-production, minor defects may be offset, making it a perfectly honorable lens. I rather use smaller, lighters lens, and this piece asked for a special occasion for me to shoot it with. The all internal AF (IF) is rear mounted, features a distance window (absent from Canon’s) and has a minimum focusing distance of 1.5m. It takes about five seconds to fix the frame smoothly in place, rendering it near useless for most of the shots. O_o It’s only when you have the camera level, with the VR shut (don’t half press the shutter release nor AF-ON), then turn it on, that it works well. The first group won’t care for its larger built and tough rings, but will appreciate its VR and good image quality.
While compiling the photos for this review I almost convinced myself to keep the lens (spoiler: I kept it. And at the rear the metal mount is surrounded by a rubber gasket, although Nikon says nothing about weather sealing. Considering it is the only VR + SWM 70-300mm on the lineup, maybe its images make a better job convincing us to keep it. And there’s a second “Active” mode, made to compensate for movements made to the photographer, like from a moving car or boat.
