The bigger sensor in the Alpha A7C, as well as the faster and more accurate autofocus and higher sensitivity, are all advantages of the camera. We particularly appreciate the optical image stabilizer, the rather pleasant touch screen, and the fact that the battery has a longer life span than the competition. Another advantage of the Alpha A6300 over its predecessor is the compatibility with USB 3.0. Given the current image size and the needs of 4K video, this is hardly a luxury.
