Mirrorless cameras boast the best sides of point and shoots and DSLRs—a compact, easy-to-carry body with a robust sensor, flexible shooting controls, and the beauty of interchangeable lenses. The Sony Alpha a6300 offers all these and more, but at a price. The magic number? PHP 56,999 for the body only. If you wanted a 16-50 mm kit lens, you’ll have to shell out a total of PHP 64,999.

To be fair, you are getting what you’re paying for. At its heart is a 24.2 MP APS-C EXMOR CMOS sensor paired with the speedy 0.05 second-lock-on-time Fast Hybrid AF system with 425 PDAF points and 169 CDAF points. In order to flawlessly handle the stream of high-density data from 24 MP stills and up to 4K video, the Sony a6300 is also equipped with a BIONZ X image processor. Paired with the significant juice, improved build quality, and better capture quality, it’s a very competitive midrange all-arounder.
