Sony A6500 reviews

Alpha a6500 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm and 55-210mm Lenses Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 262.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony a6500: It does everything I want. I have had a Sony a 6000 for 2 years (still working great) and decided to get a second and better camera. Since I jumped from 6000 to 6500, I find most changes great, in particular: the mic input jack; the silent shooting mode; the fact that you can now shoot video from your phone with the remote control app (the 6000 could only take pictures); the better grip; the 4K video mode (which means you can crop post-facto and still get HD quality); the weatherproof body (still untested). What is still a bit cumbersome: the menu system; the lack of headphone jack. Overall, this camera is perfect for me, good at stills and good at video, my two favorite activities

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Nice Step Up from my A6000 The A6000 is a terrific camera, and it will be a nice backup for my new A6500. Primarily, the thing I like best about the A6500 is the new image stabilization, which allows me to use lenses that don't have it. I've just had the camera for a few days, and it is taking me a while to get used to the new menu, but the cloud is gradually lifting, and I think I'll like it better once I'm used to it. One thing I don't like about the A6000 is the viewfinder's eyepiece cup, which refuses to stay on; this has been corrected with the A6500. My main camera is a Nikon D610, but I find myself using the A6500 more and more, since it's easier on my neck, and it takes great shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suprising Power in Miniature Quite a powerful camera for the size, this thing literally fits in your palm. Most lenses will be bigger and heavier than it. Impressive image quality, superb build quality, and highly versatile. Sure, battery life is lacking, but there are plenty of workarounds from extra batteries to external power banks, and it's worth it for the features and size. Menu system has a learning curve but not bad. In all this camera affords a much higher level of quality than any Canon model at this price range, in a much smaller package. If small-profile, run and gun, polished filmmaking is your bill, this is an excellent purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Alpha a6500 Mirrorless All I can say is WOW! Coming from Canon 60D to this with the 18-200 LE lens. The pics are beautiful from near to far. Also added the 50mm f1.8 for portraits. I just realized what I have been missing all these years. I am just an excited amateur photographer with a new toy. The a6500 fits perfectly in the hand, has the right weight and balance. Although its expensive, the seamless experience in taking the pics and 4k videos definitely justifies the cost. Very happy with purchase. The 3-axis Zhiyun Crane would be a great addition to this setup. As usual B&H shipped on the same day ordered and received it the next day. Buy it if you can afford it. You will be very happy.

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 So far so good! I've made the switch from the Canon world to the mirrorless land of Sony. It is vastly different and there is definitely a learning curve, but this camera is so much more powerful and I'm in awe at what it can do! Slowly but surely I'm learning my way around the menus and figuring out the back buttons. The images I'm getting so far are so much sharper and have far more depth that I was getting from my Rebel. I'm very happy that after making the switch I'm not disappointed, but very excited about the possibilities! The one downside is battery life and charging; this camera eats batteries fast and an external charger is not included with the camera. To charge you have to plug the camera in, so I ended up buying an external charger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of camera in a small package. I have been showing with Sony cameras for a number of years. I have the a7r and a a6000. Both cameras have served me well for different reasons. Why did I buy the a6500? Not in any particular order, 1. the more advanced auto focus, 2. the size of the buffer, 3. in camera image stabilization, 4. eye autofocus, 5. 4K video, 6. touch screen focus, and 7. silent shutter. As with the a6000 the smaller form factor. With the form factor and silent shutter you do not draw as much attention to yourself when shooting. For me that is a big deal. The camera has a more robust build than the a6000. For me this is a photographer's camera if you have gotten past mine's bigger than yours. Last and most important the image quality is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good camera with a small footprint I purchased a Sony a6500 and 16-70mm f/4 lens for travel. I wanted something that was not to big and heavy but would still produce excellent image quality. I have been using this combination for a few weeks now and have become quite familiar with navigating the menus and accessing functions. The camera is easy to control and the results compare favorably to my much larger and heavier Canon 5D Mk III with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. I agonized over the choice for quite a while prior to purchasing but could not be happier with my choice. This little camera does everything I ask of it and produces great images.
