The Sony A6300 is still on sale at Amazon – but DON'T buy it

Sony A6300

If you're searching for a 4K vlogging camera that also takes great stills, then look no further than the Sony A6300… Is what we would normally say. But stock of this has diminished and the last few scalpers out there are trying to get your hard-earned cash, with some on Amazon charging over $1,500 / £1,700 for a camera that just is not worth it in today's market. So our advice would be do not buy this camera.

Instead, you're far better off investing in the newer and better Sony A6100 or Sony A6600. However, in the spirit of yesteryear, let's take a trip down memory lane to see what made this camera a good option back in the day (and if you're understandably confused by the A6000 lineup, check out our Sony A6000 vs A6100 vs A6300 vs A6400 vs A6500 vs A6600 guide).
