“While I like a6500, I don’t love it”, Sony a6500 First Impressions by dpreview


The Sony Alpha a6500 (B&H Photo & Adorama & Amazon) will be shipping on December 6, 2016, just several days after Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2016. dpreview has posted their first impression review of Sony Alpha a6500. According to dpreview stuff, it seems the Sony a6500 is not as good as he thought “While I like a6500, I don’t love it”, and the overheating issue is still excite when shooting 4K video.

From dpreview stuff:

It’s lightweight, fast and capable. When shooting 4K video, the screen automatically dims. There is no way to use the ‘Sunny Weather’ option: it’s simply greyed out. This makes the a6500 nearly impossible to use in bright sunlight while shooting 4K video with the LCD. And I’m told the reason is to mitigate overheating, which seems like an imperfect fix for a known issue, and one that creates a new issue entirely.

But the touchscreen, one of the main things you get for the extra $400 over the a6300, is simply not good enough.
