Display

Average Display Diagonal

The Alpha A6300B has a pretty typical display diagonal (3 inches) compared to most of the other cameras that were launched in the last 12 months.

We compared all the other 3" screen digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the EOS 750D - Rebel T6i, and the EOS M3 (£262) both from Canon or the Sony Alpha A6000 (£439) are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Canon M5 (£694) (3.2" and higher rated), or the Nikon D5600 (3.2" and higher rated).
