Last week we interviewed Patrick Murphy-Racey about his advance (and top-secret) shooting with the Sony α6500. In that interview, he described his assignment to shoot sports. A lot of sports.
Today Patrick has published his full review from his three-weeks photographing as much sports action as he could find. From high-school, college and pro football to golf, tennis, volleyball and even karate, he took the camera into a variety of challenging situations and he has the photos to show how it performed. “The α6500 is a miniature BEAST of a camera,” he writes, “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.”
In his review he goes through the camera from top to bottom. “At first, you might think it's just a rebadged α6300. Same chip, same megapixels, same fps, same old story as Canikon, as they so often a couple small improvements to the same old cameras and call them new. Not so with the α6500.”
Below are some of the photos and a video from his review. All photos shot with the Sony α6500. To see the full review, go to his blog.
