Nauticam announce NA-A6300 housing for the Sony a6300

Published

NA-A6300

The Sony a6300 is one of the most versatile high performance mirrorless interchangeable lens camera released to date, and it may be one of the most fun to use. The camera has the same 24 megapixels found on the preceding a6000, and a body with similar cosmetics, but overall auto focus and the image making experience is dramatically improved.

The a6300 is in a totally different league, and when paired with the ergonomic, rugged, and downright good looking Nauticam housing creates a combo that excels at fast action still photo shooting, 4K video, and everything in between.

The Sony a6300

ProPhotoSupply_Sony_A6300_Kit_1Sony has addressed all elements of the user experience found in this “advanced amateur” camera.  The focus system is astounding, with the fastest auto focus acquisition of any interchangeable lens digital camera today (according to Sony based on their internal testing standards), and the highest number of focus points. These 425 focus points spread across almost the entire frame enable what Sony is calling “4D Autofocus”, where focus points surrounding the selected AF point are used to help the camera accurately track subject motion in all directions.

The a6300 also provides a nice bump up in electronic viewfinder (EVF) specs, using a 2.4 m-dot XGA (1024 x 768) OLED with 120 fps refresh rate. This high resolution, low lag image provides an experience remarkably like an optical viewfinder, with minimal delay.

Another major step forward for action and sports photography, a6300 is capable of uninterrupted live view while shooting at up to 8fps. In the past, mirrorless cameras would interrupt the EVF or LCD viewfinder display with a review of the last image taken, creating a stop motion effect that made it very difficult to track moving subjects. The new live view display is much like a digital SLR, with minimal blackout between shots.

The a6300 is Sony’s first APS-C mirrorless camera capable of 4K video capture. The camera records a 20 megapixel (6K!) portion of its sensor, then resamples in body to produce an extremely sharp low noise image.
