Sony Will Announce the A6500

Recommended Posts

This is a normal practice of Sony. I remember since the EX-1 and EX-3 days, and before that with the camcorders we were buying for 4-7000€, one week a camera was 6700, the next was like a bit under 5000 (true story!). Same with A7s/r I and II. I have a specific friend that bought a6000 just before the announcement of the a6300, and bought the a6300 2 weeks before the announcement of the a6500! I am not sure if he is going to buy the 6500 now..

The funny thing is, that to buy the a6300, he sold a Canon 6D and a 24-105, which the Canon after so many years had lost as much value as the a6300 in 7 months.

Mirrorless cameras are considered as mass production items, with small life cycle, and so they are priced as such, Canon seems to follow this with their M series, (Sony/Samsung/Panasonic which are elecyronics companies are doing that for years) but not with their dSLRs that they consider pro cameras.

Yeah, that says a lot, doesn't it. Honestly, Albert Fast has been doing great stuff with the G7! And it's an cheap as fuck camera that doesn't overheat! He uploaded this a few days ago:

Guess its time to prepare for disappointment.

Oh comon emanuel, thats slomo footage. The 6300 does have the worst RS around, and RS is a problem.

They don't have short life cycles. A product cycle is not a life cycle.

I have 9 cameras of various ages. They all work fine, if I chose to use them. But right now the only ones that see use are my NX1, P900 and RX100M3. NX1 for most photography/video, P900 for long range stills (video on it is crap), and the RX100M3 as a travel camera (I will likely replace it with a RX100M5 next year in March). Based on what has been announced so far, and what might be anticipated in 2017, I don't see the need to replace the other two in the foreseeable future

Demonstration of hybrid AF in 4K video of A6300 and A6500


Not the most challenging subject to shoot, in bright light. Let's see a small fast dog running towards the camera in low light...
I want to believe that the AF is excellent, but a lot of cameras could cope with shooting this.
