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.

Key Features

Focus at the speed of sight
The α6500’s 425 AF points and 0.05 sec. AF speed make it the world’s fastest autofocus system with the highest number of AF points. The α6500 also boasts 11fps high-speed continuous shooting with a significantly large buffer allowing up to 301 shots of continuous shooting.

5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE
5-axis image stabilisation lets youenjoy unparalleled handheldshooting freedom. The stabilisationsystem detects and compensatesfor many types of movement,which is very useful for night shots,telephoto shots and movieshooting.

Focus evolves with a touch
Touch Focus makes it particularly easy to adjust focus quickly, so you don’t miss the chance to capture your chosen subject. Just swipe your fingertip to shift focus point from one area to another.

Extended buffer for continuous shooting
With the α6500 extending continuous shooting capacity to 307 shots1 without any drop in shooting speed (for around 36 sec. with AF/AE tracking), you won’t miss a decisive moment.

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.

5.0-stops-faster shutter speed effect
A new, very accurate gyro sensor is a key to image stabilisation 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.

Touch Pad Function
With Touch Pad function, you can swipe the LCD touchscreen to shift focus point intuitively and easily from an area to another, even as you monitor the viewfinder.

Immediate focus point selection by touch
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.

Extra image sensor perception
This sensor has a thin wiring layer and large photodiode substrate that maximise light collection efficiency and copper wiring ensuring quick read-out. It also extends sensitivity to ISO 512007 with reduced noise.

Enhanced image processing system
The BIONZ X image processing engine enhances image texture and clarity as it minimises noise, with critical support from new front-end LSI and image processing algorithm optimised for the image sensor.

High-quality 4K recording
Shoot and internally record 4K movies generated from 6K equivalent (20MP) data in Super 35mm9 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 200,00013 release cycles and more highlight the camera’s all-around toughness, reliability and operability.
