Sony has announced the new A6500 earlier in the month of October is now made available in India. A6500 from Sony India is the upgrade and successor to the well-known model A6300. So far the best mirrorless Interchangeable Lens camera in the market is A6300, and now A6500 is going to replace its place.
To make more efficient A6500 arrived with the upgrades. A6500 is added with the in-body 5-axis optical image stabilisation and touch-screen support and faster image processing speeds.
In the third week of December, the camera goes on sale, and it is available at the price of Rs. 1,19,990 only body. A6500 borrows many features, and it is already tested on the A6300. Some of the features like 425 PDAF (Phase-Detection Auto-Focus) mode, 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, 11 FPS burst shooting and 4K Video recording. It also has silent shooting, Eye-AF, etc.
Interestingly the dimensions of this new model are also same as the old model. However, A6500 is slightly heavier than the old model, and new model weighs about 410 grams.

The major changes and features included in the new model Sony A5400 are 5-axis image stabilisation and a touchscreen LCD. Sony’s Steady Shot stabilisation in the lenses performs the decent job, no match for the proper in-body stabilisation.
The 5-axis stabilisation will make its way for the first time for the Sony’s APS- Cameras and it claims to offer a compensation in the equivalent for using the 5-stop faster shutter speed. The touchscreen of the Sony A6500 will allow you to do additional tricks like pulling the focus by just dragging your fingers across the screen.
