Introduced in 2014, Sony A6000 series quickly got popular as an interchangeable lens mirrorless camera. Following the 6000, Sony announced A6300 in February and now, they just introduced A6500. The best camera in the 6000 series yet. It is designed to solve the problems of the last generation and improve the loved features.
Let’s start with its sensor. The most important aspect of the camera. It has a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor with total of 425 phase detection autofocus points and ISO range between 100 and 512009.
A6500 can shoot 11 frames per second with a buffer of 307 shots. Like the last generation though, it focuses only in 0.05 seconds. That is all the time that the camera needs to lock on a thing.
Moreover, the camera comes with 5-axis image stabilization. According to Sony, it is the first time that company used this type of stabilization on an APS-C sensor. Even though the new stabilizer solves one of the problems of the last generation, it makes the camera bigger than A6300.
Sony also put a touch screen on the back so that you can see the images you took and change the settings.
Shipping in November, Sony A6500 will cost about $1,400.
