    I bought this body with two kit lens and case. Was very detailed in my searches within my budget. Best buy had this product on their shelf cheaper then any other vendor. I did online order and that worked pretty good. I was alerted for pickup and made it to the store 1 minute before closing time. Staff checked me out in 3 minutes. I have shot at least 200 pictures with this camera so far and they all look great.There is also free editing software that comes with this camera from internet. It works very well to fix any bad photos. I am not a entry level person to this but if you are, I would not recommend this camera, it is really for someone that has spent time learning photography OR is getting ready too at school. It is a good point and shoot camera, but you could get same results for a fraction of the price. I would recommend you watch a few you tube videos and tutorials on this unit before you spend the money. Once you decide, I highly recommend you purchase this from Best Buy with 12 months same as cash.

    Bought this camera for my avid photographer wife, who has developed some neck and shoulder problems. We travel a lot, and she carries a camera all day, most of the time. Its smaller and lighter than the much loved Nikon she was using for years. After much review and study, decided on this camera as it had all the features of a good DSLR, but in a smaller, lighter package. Plus, several good features not available with most DSLRs. There are several good reviews and tutorials on YouTube, and everyone should see them before buying. There is a long learning curve in learning more than just point and shoot with this camera, so it's not a camera for a first timer. But an experienced and intelligent photographer such as my wife, will be able to pick up on the subtleties soon enough. Hardware and software quality is high, but some of the functions could be clearer. And Sony documentation is dismal, so be sure to look for those YouTube videos. We look forward to many years of enjoyable, fruitful use.

    I love this camera first and foremost because of its small form factor. The body of the a6300 is a lot smaller than DSLR bodies which makes for more portability. With 425 autofocus points. It’s hard to get a picture that’s not in focus. The two kit lenses are amazing and you can get some really good quality pictures with them. With the smaller form factor as well I don’t find myself having to move my hands to adjust settings in for each shot. Everything is well placed and accessible. The only thing I have grown to not like about the camera is the placement of the recording button. With it on the right side of the camera I find myself accidentally pressing it while adjusting my grip of the body, I also think I might be too harsh about it but it could’ve been places in a better location. Other wise for my first camera I don’t think I could’ve made a better choice.

    This model is the newest version of the popular a6000. I was able to take great pictures right away very easily in both auto and manual modes. In manual mode I copied the settings from a picture site and got a great shot of the moon. In auto I got a great landscape shot of a lake and a shot of a beautiful sunset very easily. There are many examples of great photos from both these cameras on internet photo and video sites. The a6300 model adds a stronger feeling body and 4k video. If you are thinking about getting this camera and you like great pictures, it's time to stop reading and start buying so you can get on to taking great pictures!

    An excellent upgrade from the a6000.

    I had an a6000 last year but sold it as I tried other systems. When I wanted to get back to the Sony system I was torn as to whether the a6300 or the a6500was worth the extra costs. They all use the same sensor. Both the a6300 and a6500 have upgraded video and focusing and electronics. The a6000 is a fine camera, but using dpreview.com as a resource, it appeared both were noticeably better on focus and add 4K video. But $300 or $600 better for stills? I decided on the a6300 and am satisfied with the speed and versatility. Unless you are really buying it for 4K videography, there is no significant improvement with the a6500 and if you don’t care at all about 4K, the a6000 is also an excellent choice and the best value in Mirrorless cameras.

    I’m still fairly new to photography/videography. The day we went to Best Buy to buy a camera, we were not expecting to get a camera like this at all. We had no idea where to begin, or what questions to ask. I was asking around beforehand for others opinions on good cameras, and every single person told me to get a Canon (not a bad brand either). So I thought we were going to buy a Canon. With the help of a Best Buy employee, Bryan, we were able to narrow our search down to this camera and it is amazing! He introduced us to the world of Sony, hahah! I like to make montages and I’ve already taken a few videos. The quality cannot be beat!

    I sold my Alpha A-mount system to go with E-mount mainly because of size and improved focus. I took my a6300 out for a family event and was completely blown away by performance and quality of shots. I had it paired with the Sony 4/18-105 G lens which is amazing in itself. However, shots with the kit 16-55 and 55-210 are also super good and very fast in outdoor lighting. Haven't tried them much indoors yet but I will probably use my 1.8/50mm prime for that. The only reason I didn't give this camera 5 stars is because lens selection is very limited if you want a fast lens.However, this bundle is VERY good. I am really happy with it!

    A good compact alternative for a DSLR

    I needed a new camera i was initially confused about my choice between DSLR (Canon and Nikon) and Mirror less (Sony). Went to Best-Buy and saw all the products, read the product reviews in Youtube and finally saw a good offer for Thanksgiving and got the Sony A6300. The photos are of great quality both on Auto or Manual mode. A good alternative to a DSLR without compromising on the quality and you can record 4k videos. The only drawback is the screen. It is not a touch screen like A6500 and not a rotatable screen like you see in the DSLRs
