The Sony Alpha a6500 Mirrorless Digital Camera is a versatile and advanced mirrorless camera featuring a 24.2MP APS-C-sized Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor to produce high-resolution still images and Full HD movies with marked low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 51200. Beyond notable imaging traits, the image processor also lends itself to continuous shooting up to 11 fps and an intelligent 4D FOCUS system that uses both phase- and contrast-detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus.
Start capturing realistic images and HD video footage with the Sony Alpha a6500. When you're all set, just connect your devices via the camera's built-in Wi-Fi to share photos with loved ones.
Expand your shooting range
Meet the α6500 the APS-C interchangeable lens compact camera that puts the power to shoot professional-looking stills and movies solidly in your hands. An enhanced buffer for continuous shooting of up to 307 shots, in-camera 5-axis optical image stabilization, touchscreen control, super-speed AF and High-density Tracking AF Technology extend the range of your shooting capabilities.
Extended continuous shooting buffer
Approx. 36-s/307-shot2 continuous shooting capacity
5-axis image stabilization
Camera shake compensation effect of five-stops-faster3 shutter speed
Touch to focus immediately
Touch to focus or swipe to shift focus while looking at the viewfinder.
Focus at top speed
Capture every moment the worlds fastest AF speed and highest number of AF points respond flawlessly to virtually any shooting situation.
Worlds highest number (425) of phase-detection AF points
Wide phase-detection AF point coverage
With an incredible 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points densely positioned over the entire image area, this comprehensive AF point coverage ensures that no subject escapes its attention.
Worlds fastest (0.05 s) AF speed
Fast Hybrid AF for instant focusing
With the worlds highest AF speed (0.05 s) assisted by the BIONZ X image processing engine, you can instantly capture a fast-moving subject with supreme accuracy.
High-density Tracking AF Technology
Extra-consistent shooting of fast-moving action
High-density Tracking AF Technology activates AF points densely positioned around the subject for extra-precise, reliable detection and tracking of subjects in action.
Extended buffer for continuous shooting
With the α6500 extending continuous shooting capacity to 307 shots without any drop in shooting speed (for around 36 s with AF/AE tracking), you wont miss a decisive moment.
Live-view continuous shooting with minimal lag
Shoot moving subjects with optical viewfinder-like immediacy
In live-view continuous shooting at up to 8fps, display lag is kept to an absolute minimum, so you can capture moving subjects as they appear on the EVF or LCD, with optical viewfinder-like immediacy.
Counteracting five types of camera shake
5.0-stops-faster shutter speed effect
A new, very accurate gyro sensor is a key to image stabilization with the effect of a five-stops-faster3 shutter speed. This camera shake compensation system is effective for shooting steadier, clearer movies and still images.
Touch Pad Function
Swipe screen to shift focus point while watching viewfinder
With the Touch Pad function, you can swipe the LCD touchscreen to shift focus point intuitively and easily from one area to another, even as you monitor the viewfinder.
Immediate focus point selection by touch
Use just your finger to focus as you like within the frame
Touch Focus makes it particularly easy to adjust focus quickly, so you dont miss the chance to capture your chosen subject at the decisive moment.
For more dynamic image depiction
With new front-end LSI, BIONZ X processes data from the Exmor® CMOS image sensor for outstanding texture, clarity, and image sharpness with low noise in stills and movies.
Extra image sensor perception
This sensor has a thin wiring layer and large photodiode substrate that maximize light collection efficiency and copper wiring ensuring quick read-out. It also extends sensitivity to ISO 512008 with reduced noise.
Enhanced image processing system
The BIONZ X image processing engine enhances image texture and clarity as it minimizes noise, with critical support from new front-end LSI and image processing algorithm optimized for the image sensor.
High-quality 4K recording
Shoot and internally record 4K movies generated from 6K equivalent (20 MP) data in Super 35 mm format. Intuitive Touch Focus and 5-axis image stabilization extend shooting freedom.
Oversampling (about 2.4 x [6K equivalent] as much image data condensed to 4K) achieves high quality 4K movie resolution and realism.
Fast Hybrid AF for movies
The Fast Hybrid AF system featuring phase-detection AF (superior speed and tracking performance) and contrast-detection AF (high accuracy) satisfies the need for very precise focus even in 4K movie shooting.
Slow & Quick motion
Up to 5x Slow Motion and up to 60x Quick Motion can be recorded in camera at up to 50 Mbps in Full HD, then played back without post-production processing.
S-Gamut / S-Log shooting
S-Gamut/S-Log enable wide dynamic range (max. 1300%) shooting for more expressive moviemaking in post-production. The α6500 even offers 14-stop latitude at S-Log3 setting.
Tough, reliable integrity for smart, smooth operation
A magnesium alloy body, a shutter tested to 200,000 release cycles and more highlight the cameras all-around toughness, reliability and operability.
