Comprising the essential components needed to begin shooting, the Sony Alpha a6500 Mirrorless Digital Camera with Free Accessory Kit from B&H bundles the versatile camera body with a 64GB SDXC memory card, a spare rechargeable Li-ion battery, and a protective shoulder bag.

  • Sony Alpha a6500 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)

    Stable, fast, and versatile, the Alpha a6500 from Sony is an apt APS-C-format mirrorless camera well-suited for both photo and video applications. Revolving around a 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor, clean image quality is provided with a wide expandable sensitivity range to ISO 51200, along with accelerated readout speeds for internal 4K30 and Full HD 1080p120 video recording with full pixel readout. The processor further benefits videographers with the inclusion of an S&Q (Slow & Quick) Motion setting that permits capturing Full HD video at a variety of frame rates ranging from 1-120 fps. Stills shooters also benefit from the apt processing speed, which enables continuous shooting at 11 fps for up to 301 JPEGs in a burst, as well as 14-bit raw file output. Complementing both stills and video, 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake with all mounted lenses to support working with slower shutter speeds. The sensor and processor combination also avails 4D FOCUS, which utilizes a wide-coverage 425-point phase-detection system with a 169-area contrast detection system for quick and precise focusing performance. This focusing system also enables High-density Tracking AF for more efficient and accurate tracking of moving subjects across the image frame. Increasingly versatile and fully featured in both photo and video realms, the a6500 is a fast and precise imaging tool for multimedia capture.

    Complementing the imaging assets, the a6500 also sports a robust magnesium alloy body that is dust- and moisture-resistant to permit working in harsh environments. The compact profile incorporates a high-resolution XGA Tru-Finder 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder for bright, clear, eye-level viewing, and this EVF features a 120 fps viewing mode for smooth tracking of fast-moving subjects. A rear 3.0" 921.6k-dot touchscreen LCD monitor is also available and has a tilting design to benefit shooting from high and low working angles, and the touchscreen design allows for intuitive touch-to-focus control. Additionally, for wireless remote control over the camera, or for just sharing imagery online, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC permits linking with a mobile device for intuitive wireless control.

    24.2MP Exmor CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Processor
    The APS-C-format 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor pairs with the BIONZ X image processor to realize smooth, nuanced image quality with minimal noise and high sensitivity from ISO 100-25600, which can further be expanded to ISO 51200 for working in low-light conditions. The sensor features a unique design that utilizes thin copper wiring, enhanced circuit processing, and an enhanced front-end LSI to boost light-gathering abilities, reduce noise, and increase readout speeds to benefit video recording. The sensor and processor combination also avails a top continuous shooting rate of 11 fps for up to 301 standard JPEG frames or 107 raw frames in a single burst with AF and AE, and permits 14-bit raw file output for a wider tonal and color scale.
    5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization
    Packed into the svelte a6500 is a 5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for five different types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of stills and video. This allows users to confidently use any lens, even adapted lenses, for critical imaging without encountering blur from camera shake.

    For long focal lengths, the system will correct for pitch and yaw adjustments. Macro and high-magnification imagery, on the other hand, will benefit from the inclusion of horizontal and vertical shift compensation. All shooting styles will get usage out of the roll compensation. All 5 axes of stabilization will function at all times, even when used with third-party lenses and adapters or lenses with built-in optical stabilization.
    4D FOCUS
    Covering nearly the entire sensor area, a powerful 4D FOCUS system incorporates 425 on-chip phase-detection points along with 169 contrast-detection areas for precise focusing in as little as 0.05 seconds. The density of focusing points from this hybrid AF system also enables High-density Tracking AF Technology, which is adept at tracking moving subjects in a variety of lighting conditions. The use of phase-detection points also enables the use of A-mount lenses via the optional LA-EA3 or LA-EA1 lens mount adapters with full AF compatibility.

    The apt 4D FOCUS system also lends itself to a variety of focusing functions for refined accuracy, including Lock-on AF, which maintains focus on moving subjects throughout the use of a configurable frame that is set over the desired moving subject, and Expand Flexible Spot, which employs neighboring focus points to retain focus on moving subjects even if the originally selected point loses focus. Additionally, Eye AF can be used to base focus on recognized subjects' eyes for portraits and is available in both AF-S and AF-C modes. Autofocus can also be used in conjunction with the Focus Magnifier function for critical focus when homing in on minute subject details.

    In addition to autofocus, the a6500 also features a Peaking MF function to benefit manual focus control by highlighted sharp edges of contrast for a more objective means of acquiring sharp focus.
    UHD 4K Video Recording
    Internal recording of UHD 4K movies is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps and, based on the Super35mm recording area and effective 20MP (6000 x 3376) resolution, 2.4x oversampling renders greater detail and full pixel readout is possible, that is void of pixel binning, for higher quality imagery with reduced moiré and aliasing. Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps, and both resolutions utilize the 100 Mbps XAVC S format contained within an MP4 wrapper with 4:2:0 sampling. The high-speed, 120 fps recording also enables 4x and 5x slow-motion movie recording with the frame rate set to either 30p or 24p. In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.

    4K video recording also avails the ability to produce 8MP stills during playback by taking a frame grab from a movie and storing it as a separate file.
    Custom Color Profiles and S-Log3 Gamma
    Support is available for the S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log-3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3 profiles that enable up to a 1300% wider dynamic range for smoother tonal and color gradations, along with enhanced sensitivity and clarity in shadows and mid-tones. These profiles also lend themselves to greater compatibility within a professional workflow and are well-paired to the Cineon Log gamma curve for versatile post-production grading and color control. The S-Log3 gamma setting also offers an impressive 14-stop wide dynamic range for greater control over the highlights and shadows, while the S-Gamut3.Cine profile can be used to mimic the qualities of scanned negative film with a wide gamut comparable to the DCI-P3 color space. Additionally, the popular S-Log2 setting is also available.
    Slow & Quick Motion
    Take more control over your video capture capabilities with a variety of new frame rates available in an S&Q mode. This will allow shooters to capture Full HD video at one of either steps between 1-120 fps. These settings will allow you to slow down action as well as speed up a slow moving scene. This setting is also NTSC/PAL switchable.
    Zebra and Gamma Display Assist
    An enhanced Zebra function is ideally suited to working with S-Log gamma profiles and aids in monitoring exposure values in high-contrast scenes. Video signal level targets can be set from 0 to 109, and specific ranges can be set to make exposure level adjustments easier.

    In contrast, a Gamma Display Assist function is also available that displays scenes with natural contrast when recording with S-Log settings. This function converts imagery to the ITU709 profile for easier on-camera monitoring.
    Time Code and User Bit Settings
    A time code can be used to record hours, minutes, seconds, frames on image data for more precise editing while the User Bit function can record date, time, and scene number to aid in editing together footage from multiple cameras.

Sony a6500 reviews

Alpha a6500 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body with Free Accessory Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best travel camera To cut to the chase , I compared images taken with this camera and Sony 10-18 led to my Nikon D810 with Tamron 15-30. The image quality is very close with very slight advantage of Nikon in micro details only visible at 100% magnification on very good monitor. When downscaled to typical for Web format -no difference. The difference in weight of equipment is drastic. I would not hesitate taking Sony and that lens on Amy hiking trip , it?s so light. As for Nikon plus decent wide angle - it?s a beast to carry around while day. For me, minuscule difference in image detail does not justify the cost or weight. Make sure to keep Sony in Airplane mode to save battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera I just bought this but so far I like it a lot. It has amazing focus and picture profiles. The 4k is really sharp. I'm coming from using the Canon 6D and 70D. I like the color on the Canons well enough but the flexibility in editing 4k is just too good to continue shooting in 1080 only. Besides the color from the Sony is also really good. I was able to buy a Sigma 16mm f/1.4 prime and a Sony 50mm 1.8 prime. Using these two primes with the camera's ClearImage Zoom I get (35mm equivalent) 24mm-48mm and 75mm-150mm zoom capabilities and the image in all focal ranges are super sharp. The camera also has amazing low light capabilities and the noise at high ISO's looks more like film grain and is very usable. This is my first Sony camera but I'm really impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it The kit was okay. �The camera bag was fine for the camera without a lens. �I have a large camera backpack which works for the body with a lens. �I can use the camera bag for storing my back up drives. �I also would have been happier if the battery was a Sony battery rather than after market, but having a backup is very good. I like the camera. �It was purchased because carrying around my Nikon D7200 and len(s), especially when traveling, was getting to be more than I am prepared to do. I've started to do a pretty complete comparison between my Nikon D7200, which I love, and the �Sony 6500. �I think I'll learn to love the 6500. �It is not a DSLR; it is lighter; it does a good job with a few problems that can be fixed in Lightroom; it is easy to work. �Some of the shortcuts are a bit too easy to get to, but I think that will change as I get used to the camera. � I am not unhappy that I bought the camera. �I'm just having a hard time replacing the one I love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick focus and sharper Images. As I get older I need as much help as I can get and In camera image stabilization is why I purchased this camera, along with the fact it is a crop sensor. I previously own the A6000. It was either the 6300 or the 6500, the image stabilization was deciding factor. It focus quickly and I get sharper images, I love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First impressions are not positive. Having used an A6000 and an A7ii for a long time, I was really looking forward to the A6500. So far, though, I have to say I am not impressed. Autofocus has a complete mind of its own. I set it to center focus, and it focuses way on the lower left of the screen. Set it to wide and hang on. I was shooting people throwing leaves around, and it consistently focused on the trees behind the people, and not the people themselves. I will keep playing with settings to see if I can settle it down, but it shouldn't be this hard. I am also not impressed with image quality. I have read multiple reviews talking about the great ISO performance of the camera. I am getting significant noise at ISO 400. I can't imagine images at ISO 3200. I have used the Zeis 16-70, and the 90mm G macro lens. It's making me miss my A6000.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packs a punch! Only have had it a week, but already considering selling my other gear to get more into Sony. So small and lightweight, and packs some serious video specs. Love how quick it fires off stills too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great add for telephoto lens Got this to compliment my a7rii which I use mainly for landscape and portraits. �Other than the small LCD screen (now use with SmallHD Focus which is outstanding!), it works great with my 70-200 2.8 and the continuous mode in RAW is outstanding. �Highly recommend as it's FPS speed is the fastest of the a6000 series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value for the money Sure, the menus can be overwhelming. Go find some tutorials - map all your buttons to the custom functions, and enjoy the amazing down-sampled 6k, good low light, amazing auto-focus, etc, etc. Just use FilmConvert or something similar and let the pros handle the color instead of spending countless days or even weeks trying to learn about every picture profile and color setting.� Can't record long interviews with overheating you say? I've never had that problem - I just position the back screen away from the camera to dissipate heat and open the battery door to help even more. You can buy external batteries too, but save your money, those little adjustments will do enough. No camera is perfect. I wish the bitrate and color depth were higher, but then again, no I don't. The amount of storage space isn't bad at all for the great dynamic range, detail, and amount of specs that can be had at this price point. With all the quick button features, this camera really is something I can just pick up and go shoot with. Love it.
