Sony A6500 Review (by Patrick): Best Sports Action E-Mount Camera


Patrick Murphy-Racey is one of two very fortunate photographers in the USA that got to shoot the Sony A6500 for almost three weeks prior to the launch on October 7th. And he published his first Sony a6500 review: “It is by far the best sports action E-Mount camera Sony has made to date“. So, do you agree with him?

The verdict? The A6500 is a miniature BEAST of a camera, extremely responsive, fast in every way, and perfect for shooting sports. To use an old car term, it’s “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.” It is by far the best sports action E-Mount camera Sony has made to date.

The A6500 feels much like those high end cameras of today that cost $6,000 each. It has a high frame rate, big buffer, great image quality, and shoots when you want it to. Add awesome 4K for video, tons of real audio solutions, IBIS, and all in a tiny package just a bit larger than a pack of cigarettes and weighing in under a pound with a battery and card inside? It’s crazy.

Sitting above the a6300, the Sony a6500 becomes the company’s new flagship APS-C mirrorless camera. And a6500 features the world’s fastest AF speed and highest humber of AF points with in-camera 5-axis image stabilization, 4D FOCUS with 425 Phase-Detect Points, Internal UHD 4K Video & S-Log3 Gamma, touchscreen with AF operation, 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS sensor and more. It is absolutely a great camera! So, if you are interested, order immediately so as to obtain this best sports action E-Mount camera as soon as possible.
