Sony Alpha6500 APS-C Compact Camera Body | Black is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious Upgrade from a6000 for videographers Pros - 5 axis IBIS . 6k down-sampled to 4k . 100fps EVF . built like a tank Big Buffer Touch Screen( but not for menu) Odd! best low light for Aps-C sized sensor Cons - battery life is a lot worse ( 3 spare batteries just in case ) Rolling Shutter (but manageable)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome little camera. Super little camera that really punches way above it's weight. I mainly use it for video. Bought it as an upgrade to my a6300. The reason I upgraded was the touch focus, in body stabilisation, and improved overheating issue. The implementation of these features has made it a worthwhile investment. The menu, although improved is still a bit complex. As in, there are almost too many features, and many of them you wouldn't know what they did, so there is a learning curve. This isn't a phone where you just tap the shutter button. But the investment really pays off big time when you realise just how powerful the camera is. Also, mapping everyday features to the FN button, and custom buttons means fast access to your preferred shooting modes. Once you invest some time and master all the attributes of the camera, there really isn't anything else that competes with it. I love the killer autofocus too. It's sensational. If it had a better flip out screen for articulation I would give it five stars. Well done Sony.
