Sony α6300 Goes Courtside

In his recent blog post, Sony Artisan Patrick Murphy-Racey took to the UNLV Thomas & Mack Center to photograph the women's basketball game between the Runnin' Rebels and Boise State. Murphy-Racey, the noted Sports Illustrated photojournalist, wanted to evaluate how the new α6300 would fare in the fast-paced indoor action. Going into the arena, he had high hopes. Coming out he knew the α6300 was the camera he had been hoping for. 

"The AF-C acquires and tracks immediately with back button focus. It gave me consistent results through two games. When it missed, I felt it was me more than the camera and in those situations I felt like a 1DX/D4S would have missed too. Once the α6300 locked on to a subject that I told it to, I could simply mash the shutter release down and hold it and the camera’s hit rate at 8fps was in the 90% range." -Patrick Murphy-Racey
