24.2MP Exmor CMOS image sensor
The α6500 features an APS-C image sensor with approx. 24.21 effective megapixels plus thin wiring layer and large photodiode substrate for light collection efficiency. Combined with BIONZ X image processing engine, the image sensor achieves a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-512002 with low noise. The sensor's quick-transmission copper wiring layer helps the camera to shoot movies in 4K and Full HD at 120 fps.
425 phase-detection AF points with high-density tracking AF technology
With 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points helping to provide distinctively wide and dense AF point coverage, the α6500 focuses accurately, efficiently and reliably on subjects throughout the frame. Also, high-density tracking AF technology seamlessly activates AF points to cover and track subjects moving within frame with unerring precision.
Fast Hybrid AF for stills and movies
The α6500 features an extremely fast AF speed. Such speed is achieved by integrating the Fast Hybrid AF's autofocusing performance plus the BIONZ X image processing engine's highly efficient, accurate handling of information. This makes for extraordinarily fast, accurate AF and tracking performance when shooting movies or stills.
In-body 5-axis image stabilization
The α6500 compensates for five types of camera shake, extending opportunities to shoot steadier still images and movies. The advanced high-accuracy gyro sensor provides an image stabilization effect equivalent to a 5-steps-faster shutter speed. The camera enables you to zoom in on faraway subjects, snap detailed close-ups, capture night scenes and more - all with minimal camera shake blur.
Huge buffer for up to 307 images in continuous shooting
Faster internal processing and a higher-capacity buffer memory now allow up to 307 images of high-speed continuous shooting.
XGA OLED Tru-Finder
The α6500 introduces a high-contrast, high-resolution, high-visibility XGA OLED Tru-Finder. It reproduces darkness and color in very fine detail, for clear, smooth views of scenes and tracking of subjects. You can select either 120 (100 fps) or 60fps (50 fps) frame rate for use of this viewfinder.
Intuitive Touch Focus even with your eye to the viewfinder
Touch Focus makes focus point selection more intuitive - simply use a finger to touch the LCD touchscreen at the point of the image that you want to focus on. The Touch Pad function lets you shift the focus point smoothly by swiping a finger on the touchscreen, even while viewing the viewfinder.
Eye AF (AF-C compatible)
The α6500 features the Eye AF function that detects an eye and focuses on it with pinpoint accuracy even when shooting with a fast lens with aperture fully open and therefore with shallow depth of field. Eye AF also works in AF-C mode, so even if the subject moves, the wide coverage of the high-density 425-point focal plane phase-detection AF sensor maintains very accurate focus on the eyes.
This function maintains focus on a moving subject automatically. Simply align the target frame and the subject to be tracked. If you lose track of the subject, the camera can detect that subject and resume the Lock-on AF function when the subject reappears on the screen.
Focal plane phase-detection AF for A-mount lenses
The α6500 offers focal plane phase-detection AF even when an A-mount lens14 is mounted using a mount adaptor (LA-EA3) from Sony. So you can take advantage of the autofocus system's uniquely wide coverage provided by 425 focal plane phase-detection AF points, as well as fast, fluid tracking performance when shooting with other lenses as well as E-mount lenses.
Further advanced image processing system
The BIONZ X image processing engine is supported by newly developed front-end LSI. The image processing algorithm optimized for the image sensor enhances texture reproduction and image clarity while minimizing noise, particularly in the mid-to-high sensitivity range.
