The Sony Alpha a6500 is one of the most advanced and best mirrorless cameras for advanced to enthusiast photographers looking for a versatile compact camera for capturing stills and video.
Featuring a 24.2-megapixel Exmor APS-C CMOS sensor, 4K-video recording, in-body 5-axis image stabilisation, fast autofocus and an OLED viewfinder, the a6500 offers a comprehensive package. Whether you’re interested in creating videos, portrait photography, travel photography or capturing fast-moving subjects, such as in wildlife photography and sports, the a6500 is one of the best mirrorless cameras to consider. It’s also a camera that photographers can use in a variety of environments and conditions due to the fact that it has a tough magnesium-alloy frame, as well as a dust and weather-resistant design.
Using Sony’s powerful Bionz X image processing engine, the a6500 can be used to produce detailed high-resolution stills even in challenging lighting conditions, thanks to its native ISO sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 (expandable to 51200).
Capable of capturing full resolution stills at 11fps, with 425-point Fast Hybrid AF covering the majority of the frame, the a6500 was designed to handle action. One of the major advantages of the a6500’s 425-point phase detection autofocus is that it makes it significantly easier to track moving subjects.
The a6500’s 3-inch 921.6k-dot tilting touch-sensitive LCD offers a crisp display for composing images and touch-AF. However, the a6500 also has a high-resolution 2.36-million dot XGA OLED Tru-finder, which is great for composing images in bright lighting conditions.
For photographers looking for a more serious camera than a pocket camera or a smartphone, the a6500 offers fast capturing, superb video-recording performance, full manual control and DSLR-like handling in a highly compact form factor.
