Small but tough, Sony's dust- and moisture-resistant a6500 mirrorless camera can go anywhere you go. Its tilting touchscreen allows easy composition and intuitive shooting. Touch anywhere on the screen to focus, even when you're looking through the viewfinder. You can shift focus smoothly by swiping your finger across the touchscreen.
A steady shooter
A built-in five-axis image stabilization system helps you take tack-sharp photos and shake-free videos. This powerful system compensates for camera shake from five directions, giving you freedom to shoot handheld, zoom in on distant subjects, and capture sharp images in low light.
Keep up with moving subjects
The a6500 is capable of producing consistently clear, sharp action shots. Its Fast Hybrid autofocus system lets the camera achieve focus in as little as .05 seconds. High-density Tracking technology activates autofocus points to track moving subjects throughout the entire frame for pinpoint accuracy in still images and movies.
Advanced features for videographers
The a6500 records video in Full HD and 4K. In Super 35mm format, data is processed from every pixel for sharp, finely detailed footage. You can connect professional microphone kits for balanced audio to match the video quality. S-Gamut and S-Log shooting let you adjust color, gradation, and dynamic range for richly detailed movies, even in low light. A clean HDMI output sends uncompressed movie data to an external recorder or monitor. You can keep recording internally to the camera even when using this function.
Add functionality with your phone
You can instantly transfer photos and videos shot on the a6500 to your phone or tablet for easy uploading and sharing. NFC touch pairing is available for compatible Android™ devices, and new QR code compatibility lets you quickly pair devices without NFC. Sony's PlayMemories Camera Apps include free and paid apps that complement your photographic style and interests.
The Smart Remote Control app lets you use your mobile device to control shooting. And there are specialized apps for things like light painting, time-lapse, stop motion, and multiple exposure, plus plenty of editing effects to fine-tune your photos and add your own personal touches.
A versatile lens for everyday photography
The included 16-50mm zoom lens might be the only lens you'll need for your next road trip or family gathering. Its generous focal range lets you transition instantly from wide-angle shooting to tight close-ups without having to change lenses, so you can easily experiment with different looks and background effects. Built-in image stabilization ensures sharp handheld images at longer focal lengths, slower shutter speeds, or in low light.
