My fellow Sony Artisan Patrick Murphy-Racey just posted a great step-by-step video to custom settings for shooting sports action with the new Sony a6300 (shipping March 10). As a long-time Sports Illustrated photographer, Patrick explains how to take full advantage of the A6300’s capabilities, which custom buttons to set and which features to turn off or change.
The new 24MP Sony A6300 allows you to shoot action at 11 fps or 8 fps with no preview lag. AF tracking utilizes 425 PDAF sensors covering almost the entire sensor. The video also shows you how to set the camera to do back button AF rather than with the shutter release, which is the preference for professional sports photographers.
Patrick also posted this video of still images of NCAA Women’s Basketball shot on a6300 using the settings he mentioned in the video above.
