Great camera at a great price

Love this camera - very easy to operate and focuses quickly. I love the button that allows me to quickly toggle between Auto vs. Manual focus. I have added a +5 diopter at the end of the 18-135mm lens, and the focus peaking helps in getting the right shot on my macro photos. The body is small and compact - it is the perfect size for traveling, when we are finally allowed to do that again. For the price B&H is selling it for with this lens, you cannot go wrong.

Best camera deal ever!

I just started taking photography after I won an award for a time lapse image I took as a senior in high school. I decided to move towards a career in photography as I begin college. I tried to purchase a camera on one of those apps where you buy and sell items just to be ripped off for over $385 dollars that took me forever to save up. Then, my stepdad told me about B&H as he’s a cinematographer and won’t shop anywhere else for his gear. I called to order the A6000 and they said they were out but would give me the A6500 with a lens that just went up for sale as a package. It even included a camera bag, extra battery, card for the same price! Not only was I blown away and jumped on this amazing deal but when I got it they even threw in lens cleaning kit! Their service was also very informative and helpful! Now I see why my stepdad refuses to shop anywhere else. I’m truly grateful to B&H for their kind help and hooking me up with such an awesome deal! Especially right now when times are so hard. Thanks guys! The camera is awesome, takes amazing photographs and 4k video! Forever grateful!

Great camera.

Awesome deal for a great camera. Only price I could find which was better is an open box deal. If you know you want an A6500, look no further. I forgot to add the protection plan when I first purchased this however I was able to add the plan with no issue with one phone call. All around great service.

Love it

I upgraded from an a6000 to this. Love the camera and the extra free accessories were nice to have.

I've been using a Sony a6000 mirrorless camera for almost 3 years. I felt I needed an upgrade and am thrilled so far with the Sony 6500. I immediately noticed an improvement in the construction of the camera; it is more solidly built. The dials and wheels seem so much more substantial. The focus is excellent. I really like the slightly larger grip! There are features I haven't explored but I know that I will use this camera for many years!!! The only negative is that it is heavier and when I am using my 70-300 zoom lens, I can feel the extra weight. But I know I'll adapt.

love the camera

I bought this camera as a recommendation of a friend who is a professional photographer, as I did not have an SLR of any kind since the non-digital days. I've had it for a week now and experimented with it and I find it incredible. I decided on the 18-135mm lens since we take a lot of road trips and love to take landscape photographs and this lens is versatile enough to handle everything I need. I find that it takes terrific low light photos. I took some last night around 9:00pm on P mode, and they came out clear as a bell. I do find, and expected, that it eats up battery time pretty quickly so a 2nd battery is a must, but that was included in my package form B&H. The camera is lighter that most DSLR's and feels good in your hands. In short I am glad I made this decision and would strongly recommend it.

Giant little camera

This camera has the simplicity of the a6000 with the following advantages: 1 Higher max ISO 2 Built-in stabilization 3 Adjustable lowest shutter speed 4 Silent mode option This makes the a6500 the most power-packed compact camera available. I still keep my a6000 clean and ready and often take both with 2 different lenses on trips.

does the a6500 screen dim while shooting 1080p at 120 fps !?
Asked by: Karl
When shooting at higher fps you need more light so for any camera you will get dimmer footage at 120 vs 60/24/30
