Tony Northrup Puts The α6500 Up Against The Competition

Tony Northrup takes an in-depth look at the Sony α6500, its features, performance and how it stacks up against other APS-C competitors. Northrup commends the camera for its image stabilization, eye auto-focus, and the 4k video quality. 

"It has sensor stabilization, a touch screen, an electronic viewfinder and a whole host of other features that make it just a really great all around camera for people shooting video and stills together.

"Eye detection auto-focus on this works fantastically. This and the α7R II are the best at finding the eye for portrait shooting and really locking in focus and that makes portraits an absolute breeze.

 "The video quality, absolutely astounding and the fact that the camera has a touch screen now dramatically improves its usability because you can touch to focus." - Tony Northrup
