Sony’s a6500 Mirrorless Camera Arrives In PH Bearing Php 81,999 Price Tag

Sony has officially launched in the country the a6500 mirroless camera today. The a6500 is the follow-up to their compact a6300 camera, and bears several improvements over the previous model. The camera has the same 4D focus system that made the a6300 so great, as well as a 425 phase detection AF points and super-fast 11FPS shooting capability.

New for this year is the 5-axis OIS tech that the company uses on its more expensive (and much larger) a7 II camera, which should make this camera a monster in low-light, at least on paper. The camera still supports 4K resolution recording as its younger brother, with the XVAC S codec, along with a bunch of other new shooting features that we’ll go into our hands-on later on.

Sony is pricing the a6500 in the PH at Php 81,999 for just the body. That’s quite a price jump from the a6300 – we’ll have to see in our full review if the camera delivers on the hefty price tag.
