5-axis image stabilization

Camera shake compensation effect of five-stops-faster 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 world’s fastest4 AF speed and highest number of AF points respond flawlesslto virtually any shooting situation.

Extended buffer for continuous shooting

With the α6500 extending continuous shooting capacity to 307 shots2 without any drop in shooting speed (for around 36 s with AF/AE tracking), you won’t 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.

5-axis stabilization in palm-sized body

Minimize camera shake, even using various lenses

5-axis stabilization works with E-mount and other lenses

Gain unparalleled handheld shooting freedom using many of your favorite lenses. The short flange-back distance in the E-mount α6500 contributes to broad lens compatibility.

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 51200 with reduced noise. (A) Conventional structure (B) α6500 structure (1) Photodiode substrate (2) Light receiving surface (3) Aluminum wiring layer (4) Copper wiring layer

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

High-resolution 4K

Oversampling (about 2.4 x [6K equivalent] as much image data condensed to 4K) achieves high quality 4K movie resolution and realism.

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 200,00014 release cycles and more highlight the camera’s all-around toughness, reliability and operability.
