Sony's a6500 Mirrorless ILC camera packs all of the professional performance of a DSLR camera into a compact body. The a6500 features a 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS sensor with an ultra-fast AF speed of 0.05 seconds and a whopping 425 phase detection AF points. Additionally, in-camera, 5-axis optical image stabilization for every lens and enhanced AF features including intuitive and immediate touchscreen AF operation mean the a6500 will deliver the clearest pictures possible in any environment. For professional cinematographers, 4K movie recording and pro video features including 2.4x oversampling with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, S-Log3/S-Log2, S-Gamut and gamma assist allow users to create ready-for-broadcast quality video footage.
24.2MP of Imaging Innovation
The newly developed 24.2 MP (approx. effective) APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor features copper wiring and enhanced circuit processing that reduces the depth of the wiring layer to boost light collection efficiency. In conjunction with the BIONZ X image processor and new front-end LSI, it significantly minimizes noise throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-512005. Additionally, the front end LSI and highly conductive copper in the circuitry, accelerates readout speed to support high speed shooting with minimal lag, 4K movie recording3 with full pixel readout without pixel binning, Full HD 120fps shooting and 14-bit RAW output for still images.
4D Focus with Fast Autofocus
The a6500's unrivaled 4D FOCUS system boasts the world's fastest autofocus (AF) acquisition time1 that can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds. It also has the world's highest number of focal plane phase detection AF points2 - an incredible 425 - that are densely positioned over 84% of the image area. Moreover, the a6500 can capture full resolution 24.2MP images at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking. The a6500 takes full advantage of its enhanced fast hybrid AF for movies in both HD and 4K.
4K Video Recording and Pro Video Features
The α6500 offers internal 4K recording in Super 35mm format with full pixel readout, no pixel binning and 2.4x oversampling4 for the ultimate movie quality. By collecting 20 megapixels (6K equivalent) of information from the full width of the sensor, which is approximately 2.4x as many pixels as 4K, the α6300 then oversamples the information to produce high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth.
Easy Wireless File Transfer
Easily connect with NFC or QR code (for non-NFC devices) to smartphones or tablets with the built-in Wi-Fi and Sony's PlayMemories Mobile application available for free on the Android™and iOS platforms. Control your camera or transfer files to your device for fast and easy sharing without the need of a computer. It also supports Sony's growing range of PlayMemories Camera Apps, which add a variety of creative capabilities to the camera. Then when you're done, you can use the free software to sort and manage your stills and video with PlayMemories Home or edit your RAW file with either Sony's Image Data Converter or Capture One Express (for Sony).
16-50mm f/3.5-5.6/PZ OSS Lens (SELP1650) with Distance Encoder
Distance Encoder technology delivers high precision flash metering that is unaffected by the reflectance of subjects or backgrounds. The distance encoder is a lens component that directly detects the position of the focusing mechanism, and sends a signal to the CPU in order to measure distance to the subject.
