Description

α6500 - The palm-sized all-around all-star
With unerring autofocus, unshakeable stability and intuitive touchscreen operation crafted to fit in a palm, the α6500 is so ideal everywhere that you never need to miss a moment.
 
 
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-shot continuous shooting capacity
 
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 fastest AF speed and highest number of AF points respond flawlessly to virtually any shooting situation.
 
World’s highest number (4255) 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.
 
 
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 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.
 
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-faster shutter speed. This camera shake compensation system is effective for shooting steadier, clearer movies and still images.
 
 
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.
 
E-mount lenses
Learn about the great selection of lenses you can mount directly on the α6500 at the following:
 
A-mount lenses
LA-EA4, LA-EA3, LA-EA2* or LA-EA1* *Images are recorded in APS-C format.
With an A-mount lens adaptor, you have even more lenses to choose from the following:
 
Other lenses
Third-party adaptors
For extra versatility, the camera’s image stabilization system even functions when a lens with another type of mount is attached.
 
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 don’t 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 mm10 format. Intuitive Touch Focus and 5-axis image stabilisation extend shooting freedom.
 
 
Tough, reliable integrity for smart, smooth operation
A magnesium alloy body, a shutter tested to 200,000 release cycles and more highlight the camera’s all-around toughness, reliability and operability.
