Marmalade Kitchen, BGC, 20 January 2017 – Sony introduces the latest flagship APS-C sensor camera the a6500.
This was done through a food photography workshop and live cooking demo with Gabby Cantero and Rustic Morning’s Chef Portia Baluyot.
The latest addition shares similar qualities with Sony’s 4D Focus system which has the ability to lock-in to a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds. Other features include 425 phase detection AF that is positioned almost the entire image.
The new a6500 is feature packed for speed photographers. This can shoot at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking and up to 8 frames per second in live-view.
The new design adapts multiple cues from a7 II series including a robust lens mount, a recessed grip for handling, a larger release button, and ten custom buttons.
The a6500 also features an in-camera 5-axis optical image stabilization initially introduced in the a7II, making it the first Sony APS-C sensor camera to offer this
The camera also comes equipped with touch screen focus. A nifty feature allows you to drag a finger to shift the focus to another area of the shot.
Internals include an APS-C sized 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS sensor that works with a BIONZ X processor. The a6500 is Wi-Fi, QR and NFC compatible and is also fully compatible with Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile applications for Android and iOS platform.
