Beautiful Detail and Outstanding ISO Performance 

The Sony a6500 is equipped with an excellent Exmor CMOS image sensor with 24.2MP and a BIONZ X image processor. Combined, these two impressive features work together to deliver beautiful images and video heralding outstanding clarity, texture and sharpness with low noise, while also enabling huge continuous shooting rates and 4K and Full HD video. In a unique design, the image process flaunts quick-transmission copper wiring, enhanced circuit processing and an enhanced front-end LSI to boost light-gathering power and help the sensor achieve a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200. You'll enjoy shooting with the Sony a6500 more and more with every click of the shutter.

A Whopping 425 AF Points

Whether you’re in nature tracking wildlife in unpredictable conditions or you’re capturing a close-up one-on-one portrait or you're simply taking happy snaps at home, with 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points you’ll have all the AF points you need to efficiently and accurately focus your shot. High-density Tracking AF Technology also offers seamless tracking of subjects moving within a frame with impressive precision from edge-to-edge.

World’s Fastest AF Speed

The Sony a6500 flaunts the world's fastest AF speed at 0.05 seconds, thanks to the Fast Hybrid AF’s autofocusing performance combined with the fast and efficient image processing abilities of the image sensor. Whether shooting stills or movies, this speedy Hybrid AF promises outstanding AF and tracking that means just about anything is possible.  

Crystal-Clear Images with Superior Stabilisation

With a new high-accuracy gyro sensor, the Sony a6500 is able to compensate for five different types of camera shake so you can snap beautifully clear and steady images and movies. Whether you’re zooming in on an animal in the distance, taking a close-up of a delicate flower or snapping a night scene in low light, in-built 5-axis SteadyShot inside image stabilisation can offset camera shake at all focal lengths, by up to 5 stops. Now you can say goodbye to blurry photos!

Intuitive Touch Focus Control at your Fingertips

Enjoy quick and easy focus selection at the tip of your fingertips with Intuitive Touch Focus control using the rear LCD touchscreen. This Touch Pad function makes it so easy to choose and shift the focus point in your image to help you create exactly the picture you’re imagining, with the subject in crystal-clear detail.
