Sony has been innovating and hyping up the enthusiast camera market for a while now with their EVF cameras. It's latest salvo is the Sony α6300, a camera aimed at the 24 MP space and enthusiasts everywhere for a projected price of about US$1000, body only. Available in March 2016.
Design-wise, I don't see much of an evolution going on here — I'm hoping that the user interface has improved (but probably not, this being Sony) but it seems like Sony has doubled-down on this particular industrial design and presumably the UI for the 6000 series.
Sony is innovating like mad — 'unrivalled' 4D FOCUS™ system, which they claim has the world's fastest AF acquisition time. It has 425 phase detection AF points that covers the entire imaging area and can shoot at up to 11 fps with continuous AF and exposure tracking. More details are:
24.2 MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor
BIONZ X image processor
ISO 100 - 51200
4K video capture at up to 100 Mbps from a 20 MP, 2.4x oversampled area, non-pixel binned
What it doesn't have:
No weather/dust proofing
No AF selection interface
Still, for US$1000 you certainly get a lot. Sony's press release says:
Sounds reasonable, but with the choices out there, this particular Sony doesn't do it for me. The reason is that I'm not too keen on Sony's reliability (I've had several that failed), the industrial design and especially the human interface design, including the user interface just doesn't grab me, and of course, my biggest gripe is the breakneck speed at which they make their own products obsolete. They really to need to find a strategist in order for their customers to feel more comfortable buying a Sony. Taking service seriously would also help heaps.
