LCD attachment on the Sony A6300

The LCD screen on the Sony Alpha A6300 is flexibly attached to the body. In particular, the LCD can be tilted vertically to facilitate odd-angle shots in landscape orientation. This tilting design is often preferred, for example, by street photographers to a fully articulated, swivel type of LCD attachment, as it is more unobtrusive during shooting than a screen that flips out to the side.

Notes: *) Information refers to the mechanical shutter, unless the camera only has an electronic one.

One convenient feature of the A6300 is the presence of an on-board flash. While this built-in flash is not very powerful, it can at times be useful as a fill-in light to brighten deep shadow areas.
