This week Sony announced the Alpha A6500 camera, which will take over as Sony’s new flagship APS-C mirrorless range.

It features a similar body to the A6300, but with a range of upgrades from that model that includes 5-axis image stabilisation, improved performance, and a touchscreen display.

It still comes with the same 24.3MP sensor with copper wiring, which will work in conjunction with the BIONZ X processor for ISO sensitivity of 51,200. It also features 425 has detection points, High Density Tracking AF technology, and the ability to shoot video in a full 4K resolution.

Sony also says that the A6500’s 11fps burst shooting mode can be sustained for up to 20 seconds, and it features a E-mount for lenses with OSS or without.

On the back there’s also a new touchscreen display, with an electronic viewfinder. You can use the screen to easily shift focus from one point to another and to control the settings of the camera.

The Sony A6500 is expected to be around $1,400 when in ships in November in the US, however, we don’t yet know pricing or availability for other regions outside of the US.
