Nokia 6300 tracking system

The mirrorless or compact system camera category has been growing steadily over the past couple of years, and for good reason. These cameras DSLR levels of functionality and quality (depending on the sensor being used) in a compact body that's relatively easy to carry around. Sony has been enjoying a fair bit of success in this category ever since it announced its A6000 interchangeable lens mirrorless camera nearly two years ago. This particular model has been revered by many as the go-to compact camera for action stills and video.

Naturally, when the company announced its successor this year, we couldn't wait to get our hands on it. Sony India has been quite aggressive with the launch , making the A6300 available here just two months after its US launch . At Rs. 74,990, the A6300 costs a huge premium, but boasts of an impressive set of features usually found in cameras that cost a lot more. Is it, then, every bit as good as it looks on paper? Let's find out.

Design and build
At first glance, the A6300 reminds us a lot of its predecessor, but there are subtle changes which have been made for the better. It retains the same compact shape which means one can easily slip it into a cargo pocket. It's a bit heavy though at roughly 404g, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as it doesn't feel like a toy. Some improvements in the design include a tougher magnesium alloy body that's also dust and moisture resistant. It still isn't weather-sealed but should be good enough to withstand light splashes.
