The Sony α6500 (model ILCE-6500) is a compact digital camera announced on 6 October 2016 shortly after photokina 2016.

The α6500 features a 24 megapixel Exmor RS sensor with 425 phase detection autofocus points. The camera is powered by Sony's Bionz X image processor with an ISO range up to 51,200. Additionally, the α6500 can shoot images at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking.

The mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC) is also the first Sony model to integrate a 5-axis image stabilizator in a body with APS-C-sized sensor. Sony claims an autofocus performance as short as 0.05 seconds.[1][2][3]

Lens compatibility[edit]

Sony E-mount lenses, both full-frame (FE) and APS-C (E) are compatible with the α6500.
