  1. I am coming from the Sony a6000. Works very well for me, if you know how to deal with the flaws. I have several E mount lenses. I will give it a chance to the a6500. Of course it is a different story from the a6300 point of view.

    This is my update list from Sony a6000:

    4K UHD/30p in XAVC-S 100Mb/s 8bit 4:2:0 internal 

    1080p/120fps plus NEW S&Q for 1-120fps Slow-Motion! 

    3.0″ 921.6k-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD

    S-Log2/ S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log-3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3 and Display Assist Function

    5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilization

    425 phase-detection AF points

    3.5mm Audio mic input

    XLR support

    Newly-developed front-end LSI

    Micro HDMI out – UHD 8bit 4:2:2 to external recorders

    Up to 11 fps Shooting and ISO 51,200

    XGA Tru-Finder 2.36m-Dot OLED EVF

    Magnesium Alloy Body

    Dust and moisture resistance

    Robust lens mount

    Digital (dual-axis electronic) Level Gauge

    Silent shooting

    External power through USB

  2. Back to the topic: a6500 Overheating Test

    "Lol. Philip Bloom stole some thunder away from other youtuber's exclusive a6500 overheating test (lcd in closed position / no cage) by streaming the test over Facebook. It looks like the a6500 made it to the clip limit and did not shutdown. Unfortunately they were not able to try longer as their time with the camera was over.

    He also confirmed that the rolling shutter is the same as the a6300."

  3. "In an interesting update, there's a new menu option which changes when the over-heating warning icon appears: there's Standard or High options, the latter simply allowing the camera to keep operating even when it's getting hot, although protection will still kick-in to prevent any damage. When shooting with the earlier A6300, I found the body could get quite hot to touch, and revealingly Sony's engineers recommended using the A6500 on a tripod when the temperature warning had been adjusted - not to do with stabilisation, but because the body may become uncomfortably hot."


  4. Andrew. Could you please test the camera powering through the USB port?
    Do you need to keep the battery inside the camera this way to run? If not, this could help to solve the overheating problem.
