The New Sony a6300

The Sony a3600 is just a few days Old. For what it’s worth, I think it is the best deal of camera yet. Straight of my thoughts, I can’t recall any camera that sells under $1k with a 4k Feature and Slo Motion capture, Unless of course you want to buy the Go Pro. Anyways, While I was at the B&H, I asked the expert of his thoughts on the camera. He honestly told me that, he thinks the a7s mark II makes a better video camera feature ,and because of it’s low megapixel (12), it retains better information as opposed to the a6300. I haven’t quite used the camera yet ,as first release was sold out. Below are the features promised by sony (Extract from B&H).
