Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Nikon D5600, which was introduced in November 2016 is a Entry-Level DSLR camera with a 24.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Sony A6300, which was introduced in February 2016 is a Semi-Pro Mirrorless camera with a 24.0MP APS-C sensor.
Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting. Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Nikon D5600 is ranked #4
out of 78 Entry-Level DSLR cameras with an overall score of 79 whereas Sony A6300 is ranked #10
out of 43 Semi-Pro Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 79.
