Overview
Sony Alpha a6500 24.2MP Mirrorless Digital Compact System Camera Body with 5-axis OIS (ILCE6500B.CEC). The Sony Alpha a6500 bulids on the successes of its predecessor the a6300 and adds in-body 5-axis image stabilisation and an LCD Touch Panel in addition to continuing to have continuous shooting at 11 frames per second, 4K movie recording and over 24 megapixel resolution.
Integrated 5-axis Image Stabilisation
The α6500 compensates for five types of camera shake, extending opportunities to shoot steadier still images and movies. The new high-accuracy gyro sensor provides an image stabilization effect equivalent to a 5-steps-faster6 shutter speed.

About the Sony a6500 Camera Body Only

The Sony Alpha a6500 bulids on the successes of its predecessor the a6300 and adds in-body 5-axis image stabilisation and an LCD Touch Panel in addition to continuing to have continuous shooting at 11 frames per second, 4K movie recording and over 24 megapixel resolution.

Integrated 5-axis Image Stabilisation
The α6500 compensates for five types of camera shake, extending opportunities to shoot steadier still images and movies. The new high-accuracy gyro sensor provides an image stabilization effect equivalent to a 5-steps-faster6 shutter speed. The camera enables you to zoom in on faraway subjects, snap detailed close-ups, capture night scenes and more ― all with minimal camera shake blur. (1) Yaw (2) Pitch (3) Roll

24.2MP Exmor CMOS Sensor
The α6500 features an APS-C image sensor with approx. 24.21 effective megapixels plus thin wiring layer and large photodiode substrate for light collection efficiency. Combined with BIONZ X™ image processing engine, the image sensor achieves a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-512002 with low noise. The sensor’s quick-transmission copper wiring layer helps the camera to shoot movies in 4K and Full HD at 120fps (100fps3).

42 phase-detection AF Points and High Density Tracking AF
With 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points helping to provide distinctively wide and dense AF point coverage, the α6500 focuses accurately, efficiently and reliably on subjects throughout the frame. Also, High-density Tracking AF Technology seamlessly activates AF points to cover and track subjects moving within frame with unerring precision

Fast Hybrid AF - Stills and Movies
The α6500 features the world's fastest4 (0.05 sec.4) AF speed. Such speed is achieved by integrating the Fast Hybrid AF’s autofocusing performance plus the BIONZ X™ image processing engine’s highly efficient, accurate handling of information. This makes for extraordinarily fast, accurate AF and tracking performance when shooting movies or stills. (1) Point of focus (2) Contrast-detection AF (3) Phase-detection AF

307-image Buffer
Faster internal processing and a higher-capacity buffer memory now allow up to 307 images (over 36 seconds)5 of high-speed continuous shooting. 

11fps Continuous Shooting (8fps with LiveView)
Clearly capture moving subjects with high-speed continuous shooting at up to 11fps (Hi+). Or choose among three speeds up to 8fps (Hi), for live-view continuous shooting with very little lag on the EVF or LCD screen ― it’s practically as immediate as shooting with an optical viewfinder. 

XGA OLED Tru-Finder Viewfinder
The α6500 introduces a high-contrast, high-resolution, high-visibility XGA OLED Tru-Finder™. It reproduces darkness and color in very fine detail, for clear, smooth views of scenes and tracking of subjects. You can select either 120 (100fps4) or 60fps (50fp4) frame rate for use of this viewfinder. 

Touch Focus
Touch Focus makes focus point selection more intuitive ― simply use a finger to touch the LCD touchscreen at the point of the image that you want to focus on. The Touch Pad function lets you shift the focus point smoothly by swiping a finger on the touchscreen, even while viewing the viewfinder.

4K Movies
4K movie recording in the Super 35 mm10 format with full pixel readout and no pixel binning allows approx. 2.4 times11 as much information as is basically required for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). Data this rich is, in fact, equivalent to 6K data, so it clearly conveys exceptionally high resolution in 4K images.

200,000-cycle Shutter Life and Silent Shutter
Enjoy less blur from vibration and a very quiet, durable shutter tested to about 200,000 shutter releases12. Added braking mechanisms near the end of the rear shutter path plus elastic material as shock absorber produce these benefits. The reduced vibration also helps optimize image sensor resolution performance. Silent Shooting mode releases the shutter without a sound, even in continuous shooting up to about 3fps with AF/AE tracking, so it's very convenient for shooting indoor performances, outdoor wildlife, and in other situations where silence is essential. To turn this mode on/off more intuitively and less intrusively, assign it to a customizable button.

Eye-AF and Lock-on AF
The α6500 features the Eye AF function that detects an eye and focuses on it with pinpoint accuracy even when shooting with a fast lens with aperture fully open and therefore with shallow depth of field. Eye AF also works in AF-C mode, so even if the subject moves, the wide coverage of the high-density 425-point focal plane phase-detection AF sensor maintains very accurate focus on the eyes. Lock-on AF maintains focus on a moving subject automatically. Simply align the target frame and the subject to be tracked. If you lose track of the subject, the camera can detect that subject and resume the Lock-on AF function when the subject reappears on the screen.

Focal plane phase-detection AF for A-mount lenses 
The α6500 offers focal plane phase-detection AF even when an A-mount lens15 is mounted using a mount adaptor (LA-EA3) from Sony. So you can take advantage of the autofocus system’s uniquely wide coverage provided by 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points, as well as fast, fluid tracking performance when shooting with other lenses as well as E-mount lenses. (1) A-mount lenses

Slow and Quick Motion
Up to 5x Slow Motion and up to 60x Quick Motion14 can be recorded at up to 50 Mbps in high-quality Full HD in camera. You can choose among eight shooting frame rates ranging from 1fps to 120fps (100fps4), as well as 24p, 30p (25p4), or 60p (50p4) recording format. Slow Motion and Quick Motion footage can be played back after it is shot, without PC-based post-production processing.

Further advanced image processing system
The BIONZ X™ image processing engine is supported by newly developed front-end LSI. The image processing algorithm optimized for the image sensor enhances texture reproduction and image clarity while minimizing noise, particularly in the mid-to-high sensitivity range.

Magnesium Alloy Body with Dust and Moisture Resistance
With internal frames, rear cover, top cover and front cover constructed of magnesium alloy, α6500 is designed for solid reliability and steady handling, as its compact form readily withstands the rigors of shooting in the field. Also, the strength and rigidity of the lens mount provide an especially solid foundation for mounting and withstanding rugged use with even large, heavy lenses such as telephoto lenses. Comprehensive dust and moisture resistance measures that help prevent water and dust from entering the body include sealing around the buttons and dials, as well as a protective double-layered structure that tightly interlocks panels and components.
