I've reviewed a lot of Sony Alpha cameras down the years. The Sony a6500 happens to be one that I really like. I mean really, really like. Here's why.
Sony Alpha cameras are launched with massively impressive specs and a lot of marketing hype. Consequently - rightly or wrongly - they are immediately put on a pedastal for reviewers like me tear them down.
More often than not, they don't quite live up to the hype. For example, the processor might not quite match the high-speed performance.
So while the Sony Alpha cameras often still outperform the competition, the end feeling does not reflect that.
The Sony a6500 is an exception. Believe the hype, believe the numbers. The camera's performance backs it all up.
Of course, no camera is perfect. Poor battery life is a big problem and there is no charger included! Come on Sony.
Yet, the Sony a6500 is an exceptionally capable, tough, tiny and powerful camera. Its image and video quality are excellent, particularly the 4k videos. (On the flipside, many other cameras boast 4k video, but often come with severe unpublicised limitations. Not so the a6500)
