Sony a6500 25.0 Megapixel E-Mount APS-C Black Digital Camera - ILCE6500/B


  • 24.2 MP12 Exmor® CMOS image sensor
    The α6500 features an APS-C image sensor with approx. 24.212 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 100-5120013 with low noise. The sensor’s quick-transmission copper wiring layer helps the camera to shoot movies in 4K and Full HD at 120fps (100fps14).
  • 425 phase-detection AF points with High-density Tracking
    AF Technology 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 for stills and movies
    The α6500 features the world's fastest15 (0.05 sec.15) 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
  • In-body 5-axis image stabilization
    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-faster17 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
  • Huge buffer for up to 307 images (over 35 seconds)16 in continuous shooting
    Faster internal processing and a higher-capacity buffer memory now allow up to 307 images (over 36 seconds)16 of high-speed continuous shooting.
  • 11fps (Hi+) continuous shooting and 8fps (Hi) live-view continuous shooting
    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™
    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 (100fps14) or 60fps (50fp14) frame rate for use of this viewfinder.
  • Intuitive Touch Focus even with your eye to the viewfinder
    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.
  • 4K18 movie recording19
    4K movie recording in the Super 35 mm20 format with full pixel readout and no pixel binning allows approx. 2.4 times21 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.
  • High-durability shutter tested to approx. 200,000 release cycles22 with low vibration
    Enjoy less blur from vibration and a very quiet, durable shutter tested to about 200,000 shutter releases22. 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.
  • Eye AF (AF-C compatible)
    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
    This function 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 lens25 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 Motion23
    Up to 5x Slow Motion and up to 60x Quick Motion24 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 (100fps14), as well as 24p, 30p (25p14), or 60p (50p14) 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.
  • S-Gamut/S-Log shooting
    S-Gamut and S-Log shooting give you flexibility to perform color grading in post-production. The S-Log3 and S-Log2 gamma curves feature wide dynamic range (up to 1300%) to minimize whiteout and blackout. The α6500 even offers impressive 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting. The camera also supports S-Gamut, S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3. Cine color space from Sony.brNOTE: S-Log2 and S-Log3 are premised on processing pictures.
  • Gamma Display Assist and Zebra function
    With Gamma Display Assist, you can view images with natural contrast while recording in S-Log gamma setting, converting S-Log2 and S-Log3 into ITU709 (800%) gamma for monitoring26 images, or checking focus while enlarging an image on the LCD screen or viewfinder. Moreover, Zebra function simplifies exposure monitoring, especially when shooting in S-Log gamma setting. Target a video signal brightness level from 0 to 109%, and set a range between +10 and –10% of that value; zebra pattern indicates areas with that level of exposure within that range.
  • AF in Focus Magnifier
    You can use autofocus even while enlarging a selected image area on the viewfinder or LCD screen, for finer adjustment of focus, for example. Excellent for macro shooting, when accurate focusing is crucial.
  • Terminals expand connectivity
    The camera supports line input from professional-standard audio devices with XLR terminal, with use of a separately sold XLR adaptor kit (XLR-K2M/XLR-K1M) that enables connection with various high-end microphones. This camera also supports clean HDMI output that allows uncompressed 4K and Full HD movies to be output to an external recorder or monitor.
  • Tough magnesium alloy body and robust lens mount
    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.
  • Dust and moisture resistance
    Comprehensive dust and moisture resistance27 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.
  • Silent shooting
    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.
  • PlayMemories Camera Apps™
    Express photographs more creatively with PlayMemories Camera Apps™, the application download service that lets you add new functions to your camera’s feature set28. Choose among Time-lapse for recording images at intervals and combining them, Smart Remote Control for control of settings from a smartphone or tablet, Sky HDR (high-dynamic-range-imaging), Star Trail, Liveview Grading, Smooth Reflection and other apps. Note: Services availability depends on region.
  • New menu interface
    The redesigned menu has a new categorization scheme. Now, the group name being selected can be found at the screen top, and each tab is colored differently. This allows quick access to desired menu items, which enables you to change settings smoothly even during shooting.
  • File Name setting
    Each file name starts with "DSC" by default, but you can use the camera to change, register and thereby customize the file name to include the first three characters of your choice. This facilitates management of files, especially when working on assignments with multiple cameras.
  • Supported in Capture One Express (for Sony)
    Capture One Express (for Sony) is one of the world’s best RAW converters, rendering precise colors and incredible detail. It contains flexible digital asset management, all the essential adjustment tools and fast, responsive performance in one customizable and integrated solution. NOTE: Please direct all inquiries on purchase, usage and support on Capture One solutions to Phase One.)
  • Location Information Link29
    After the camera has been paired via Bluetooth® to the PlayMemories Mobile™30 app installed on a compatible mobile phone or tablet device, it can acquire and record location data from the mobile device. The acquired location data can also be used to correct the camera’s date/time and location settings. The PlayMemories Home™ application can then be used on a personal computer to organize on a map any still images imported into the computer.
  • One-touch remote/One-touch sharing
    One-touch remote makes your smartphone or tablet a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to your device for social network site (SNS) sharing. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile™30 app via Wi-Fi® to your NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. No NFC? No problem. New QR code compatibility can also pair the devices.
  • Enhanced Remote Camera Control31 function
    When the camera is connected to a computer, you can use Remote Camera Control to take pictures or change camera settings from the computer. This computer-to-camera connection now makes it possible for you to store still images in camera as well as on the computer, so you can visually check images without leaving the camera position. It is now also possible to transfer only JPEG (rather than both JPEG and RAW) files to the computer, reducing the file data volume and allowing transferred images to be checked almost immediately.
  • Enhanced auto exposure functions
    Along with Multi, Center, and Spot metering modes, the camera features new ones including Highlight, which automatically detects the brightest area in the frame and concentrates exposure metering on that area to avoid blown highlights; and Average, which determines average metering for the entire image in order to maintain stable AE tracking performance as shooting angles change as well as predictable AE behavior. Also, when [Focus Area] parameter is set to [Flexible Spot] or [Expand Flexible Spot] the metering spot location can be linked to the focus area (selectable from Center/Focus Point Link). Moreover, standard exposure value can be adjusted from -1 to +1 stop in 1/6-stop increments, and set separately for each metering mode.
  • Priority Set in AWB
    When white balance is set to Auto and incandescent lamps or similar illumination are the light sources, the color tone priority can be set to [Standard], [Ambience] or [White]. [Ambience] produces a warm tone; [White] reproduces white tones faithfully.
