Sony A6500 camera features
One of the major additions to the A6500 is the 5-axis image stabilization. The optical stabilization provides a shutter speed advantage of 5 steps, ensuring the full resolving power of the sensor can be realized, even in challenging lighting. Its predecessor, the a6300 has no internal stabilization, it only offers stabilization through the lens. Further, the Sony A6500 has a new LSI chip that is added to the front-end of the camera. This LSI enables fast response times and provides superior image and video quality with low noise even when using higher ISO settings. In addition, the camera features the well-known Bionz X image processor. Many missed a touch screen on the a6300, for those Sony's new A6500 features a 3.0-inch touchscreen display with 921.600 pixels. In addition, the camera features a 2,36MP XGA OLED viewfinder. The Sony A6500 records videos in a stunning 4K quality. The camera also includes several semi-professional video functions.
