Sony introduced A6500

Sony recently launched a new camera, their flagship APS-C sensor camera, the the α6500 (model ILCE-6500), the latest addition to their line-up of award winning mirrorless cameras.  When Sony launched their A6000 model, I had the opportunity to review the camera, shared my thoughts and experiences here. This series grew with the next model being A6300 and now it is the A6500.

Let me share with my readers more information and details of the Sony A6500 from the press release information below –

As the latest addition to Sony’s line-up of award winning mirrorless cameras, the new α6500 shares the same unrivalled 4D FOCUS™ system as the α6300 camera, which can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds, the world’s fastest1 AF acquisition time. Similar to the α6300, the new α6500 features 425 phase detection AF points that are densely positioned over nearly the entire image area – the world’s highest2 number of AF points on any interchangeable lens camera. The new model can shoot images at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking, and up to 8 frames per second in a live-view shooting mode that makes it easy to track fast moving subjects. At the same time, it combines all of the benefits of an electronic viewfinder with the immediacy of an optical viewfinder.

The camera can shoot at these high speeds for up to 307 frames[1] thanks to its expanded buffer, which, along with the fast response speeds described above, are all achieved with the support of a new front-end LSI chip that has been added to the camera. This new front-end LSI also serves to enhance both still and video image quality.

a6500-2

Additionally, the new α6500 features Sony’s acclaimed in-camera 5-axis optical image stabilisation, making it the first Sony APS-C sensor camera to offer all of the benefits of advanced in-body stabilisation, including a shutter speed advantage of approximately 5 steps[2]. It also offers touchscreen AF capabilities for focus point selection and adjustment.

Unmatched AF Capability

Sony’s new α6500 camera utilises the same 4D FOCUS system as the α6300 – a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines high-speed phase detection AF with extremely accurate contrast AF, allowing it to capture and lock on to moving subjects in as little as 0.05 seconds1. It also features 425 phase detection AF points and High-density Tracking AF Technology, which significantly improves subject detection and tracking performance.

Thanks to faster internal processing capabilities enabled by the front-end LSI, the maximum buffer for high-speed continuous shooting for the α6500 is an impressive 307 frames3, greatly increasing the chances to catch that decisive moment.

The camera’s 425 phase detection AF points, focusing tracking and accuracy are also available when using non-native A-mount lenses[3] with Sony’s LA-EA3 mount adaptor. Additionally, it includes silent shooting, Eye AF in AF-C mode, AF in focus magnifier modes, Expand Flexible Spot AF and more.

5-axis Image Stabilisation Provides 5 Steps Shutter Speed Advantage

One of the most exciting developments in the new α6500 is the implementation of 5-axis image stabilisation for the first time in a Sony APS-C sensor camera. Through a total revision of the internal design of the camera, this newly developed stabilisation system fits entirely within a body that is nearly the same size as the α6300.[4] This innovative 5-axis system provides a shutter speed advantage of 5 steps4, ensuring that the full resolving power of the sensor can be realised, even in challenging lighting conditions.

The shake compensation provided by the system works with a variety of lenses, including E-mount lenses without OSS (Optical SteadyShot™) stabilisation and A-mount lenses[5] when used with a compatible mount adapter. When an E-mount lens with OSS is mounted, pitch and yaw are compensated in the lens and horizontal, vertical and roll axes are also compensated in the camera body, resulting in optimal 5-axis stabilisation.7

Furthermore, with a simple half press of the shutter button, the effect of the image stabilisation can be monitored in the viewfinder or on the LCD screen, allowing framing and focus to be accurately checked and continually monitored. This is available even when a lens without built-in shake compensation is attached.

New Touch Screen Focusing

The new α6500 comes equipped with touch screen functionality, allowing users to lock focus on a subject simply by touching it on the screen. This is a powerful complement to its advanced AF system and video shooting capabilities.

a6500-9

A first for Sony cameras, the α6500 features touchpad functionality. When utilising the viewfinder for framing and shooting, the LCD screen can be used as a touch pad. Simply drag a finger across the screen to shift the focus point from one area to another.

Powerful 24.2 MP[6] Exmor CMOS Sensor, BIONZ X® Processor and New Front-End LSI

The new α6500 features an APS-C sized 24.2 MP8 Exmor CMOS sensor that works together with a BIONZ X® image processor and the newly developed front-end LSI to maximise processing power and achieve an impressive sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200.[7]

The image sensor employs a thin wiring layer and large photodiode substrate that maximises light collection efficiency, as well as copper wiring in its structure for outstanding read-out speed. The BIONZ X® image processor and newly developed front-end LSI ensure superior image and video quality with low noise even when using higher ISO settings, in particular those at high sensitivity values where other cameras typically struggle. The LSI is also responsible for the expanded buffer depth for continuous shooting.

Professional Video Capabilities

The new α6500 becomes the latest Sony interchangeable lens camera to offer internal 4K movie recording, as it can shoot 4K (3840 x 2160p) video in the popular Super 35mm format on the full width of the image sensor. When shooting in this format, the camera uses full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 6K of information – approximately 2.4x[8] (20MP equivalent) as many pixels as 4K UHD, and then oversamples the information to produce high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth.

The α6500 also focuses exceptionally fast during movie shooting thanks to its Fast Hybrid AF system, which enables touch focusing for professionally smooth focus shifts, whilst also offering adjustable AF transition speed and AF tracking sensitivity. The camera supports the XAVC S codec[9] during video shooting, which records at a high bit rate of up to 100 Mbps during 4K recording and 50 Mbps during Full HD shooting – ensuring maximum detail and clarity in both video formats.

Other professional calibre video features include the ability to record Full HD at 100fps at up to 100 Mbps. This allows footage to be reviewed and eventually edited into 4x slow motion video files in Full HD (25p) resolution with AF tracking.

New on the α6500 is the incorporation of a ‘Slow and Quick’ (S&Q) mode that supports both slow motion and quick motion. In this mode, frame rates from 1 fps to 100fps can be selected in 8 steps for up to 50x quick motion and 4x slow motion recording[10]. Footage shot in this mode can be previewed after shooting without the need for a PC-based post processing.

The camera also offers S-Log gamma recording[11] for wide dynamic range shooting – approximately 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting – and supports S-Gamut for a wider colour space. Both options allow for greater creativity for processing video post-production.

Furthermore, shooters can now select, extract and save still images from movie footage directly on the camera. Approximately 8MP images and 2MP images can be extracted from 4K modes and Full HD modes respectively.

Enhanced Operability and Reliability       

The new α6500 has a refined design, maintaining the mobility of the α6000 series while adapting much of the usability of Sony’s acclaimed α7 II series. The new model features the same high contrast, high-resolution 2.4 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ as the α6300 that offers exceptional corner-to-corner visibility.

a6500-7

New hardware features on the α6500 include a magnesium alloy body and a high-durability shutter with a tested life span of approximately 200,000 release cycles.[12] It also has several design features that are borrowed from the α7 II series of full-frame cameras, including a robust lens mount, a recessed grip to improve handling, a larger release button, and ten total custom buttons including ‘C1’, ‘C2’ and ‘C3’. The new α6500 also has an improved operation feel for its mode and control dials and rear face buttons, as well as a softer eyepiece cup for more comfortable usage.

On the software front, there is a new overall user interface that allows for a much smoother process for searching and adjusting menu settings, as well two new metering modes – Highlight, where exposure metering is focused on the brightest area of the frame, and Entire Screen Avg, which maintains an average metering for the entire image.

The camera is Wi-Fi®, QR and NFC compatible. It is also fully compatible with Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile™ applications[13] available for Android™ and iOS platforms along with Sony’s growing range of PlayMemories Camera Apps™. The α6500 further offers location data acquisition via a Bluetooth®[14] connection to a compatible mobile device and an updated menu structure to deliver a smoother navigational experience.

Pricing and Availability          

The new Sony α6500 interchangeable lens camera will be available at all Sony Stores, Sony Centres and selected Sony authorised dealers from December 2016. The current α6000 will also see a new colour introduction in December with the model also available in Graphite Grey.

Sony announced RX100 V

Sony recently announced a new flagship model of their Cyber-shot RX series family of compact cameras, the RX100 V (DSC-RX100M5). The Sony Cyber-shot RX series compact cameras have been a popular compact camera and I had seen them innovate and improve over the series. I reviewed the RX100 II model before therefore I had a good idea of this compact camera, its capabilities and the improvements from the RX100 II model to the RX100 V model.

The RX100 series compact cameras are small and compact fitted with some pretty good technical specifications built inside it.

I would share with you more information and details on the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V from the press release information below ~

The exciting new camera brings a new level of AF performance and speed to today’s compact camera market. It is equipped with a Fast Hybrid AF system with the world’s fastest AF acquisition1 at 0.05 seconds[1], and world’s highest number of AF points on sensor1 with 315 points covering approximately 65 per cent of the frame. The camera can further shoot continuously at speeds of up to 24 fps[2] – the world’s fastest for a compact camera1 – at full 20.1MP (approx. effective) resolution with AF/AE tracking for up to 150 continuous shots[3].

sony-rx100-v-1

The RX100 V is equipped with a newly developed 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor with a DRAM chip, a ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70 mm[4] F1.8 to 2.8 large aperture lens, and an enhanced image processing system with a new front-end LSI chip that maximises processing speed, expands the memory buffer and optimises image quality, in particular at high ISO settings. The camera also features 4K video recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning[5], super slow motion recording at up to 960fps[6] with extended recording time and more.

Fast Focusing, Fast Shooting

A first for Sony’s RX100 series of cameras, the new RX100 V model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines the respective advantages of focal-plane phase detection AF and contrast detection AF. It ultimately enables the camera to lock focus in as little as 0.05 seconds.2 This high speed focusing is a perfect complement to the 315 dedicated AF points that cover 65 per cent of the sensor, and ensures that shooters will be able to capture their intended subject with high speed and accuracy, even if it is moving rapidly in unpredictable directions.

sony-rx100-v-4

Additionally, processing speed has been greatly enhanced through the addition of a front-end LSI that perfectly supports the camera’s BIONZ X™ image processing engine. These two components combined with the powerful AF system allow the camera to shoot continuously at speeds of up to 24 fps3 at full 20.1MP (approx. effective) resolution for up to 150 shots4 with AF/AE tracking. Viewfinder blackout between shots has also been minimised in this high-speed shooting mode, which greatly improves photographers’ ability to follow fast action and capture the decisive moment. Silent shooting is also available in these high-speed modes.7

Other advancements to AF performance on the new RX100 V include the addition of AF-A mode, which allows the camera to automatically switch between continuous and single-shot AF modes. Users can also manually select if they’d like the continuous AF and phase detection AF areas to be displayed live on screen while they are framing a shot.

sony-rx100-v-6

The RX100 V has a high speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum speed of 1/32000 second) that minimises the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast moving subjects.   This fast shutter speed also allows the camera to capture sharp, crystal clear images with a wide open aperture at brightness levels up to EV19.[7] Shooting at wide aperture with the fast shutter speed allows photographers and videographers to capture beautiful content with sharply focused subjects and defocused backgrounds under some of the most difficult, bright lighting conditions.

Professional Movie Functionality

The pocket-sized RX100 V is packed with a variety of video capabilities that will satisfy even the most demanding video enthusiasts.

With Fast Hybrid AF, the focal plane phase detection AF sensor ensures accurate focusing and tracking performance, even for the severe focusing requirements of 4K movie shooting. AF drive speed and AF tracking sensitivity can also be adjusted via the menu system, giving shooters plenty of flexibility based on their focusing preferences.

sony-rx100-v-7

In 4K mode,6 the new RX100 V utilises full pixel readout without pixel binning to ensure that all the finer details of 4K video are captured with minimal moiré and ‘jaggies’. These high-quality results are achieved through the use of the XAVC S codec, which records video at a high data rate of up to 100 Mbps during 4K recording and 50 Mbps during full HD shooting[8].

The RX100 V is able to record super-slow motion video[9] at up to 40x slower than the standard rate, and can do this for about twice as long as the RX100 IV model. This extended time allows users to capture a series of high-speed, fleeting moments of action with incredible detail, resolution and clarity.

Pocket-Friendly Design, Premium Performance

The new RX100 V maintains the convenient pocket-sized design of the remainder of the RX100 family and is equipped with a high-contrast 2.35 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder™, ensuring true-to-life image preview and playback functionality. The electronic viewfinder (EVF) conveniently retracts in and out of the camera body based on user’s preference, and features optics with ZEISS® T* Coating.

Sony introduced E PZ 18-110mm F4 G OSS lens

Sony recently introduced a new lens for moviemakers, the Sony E PZ 18-110mm F4 G OSS lens.

Let me share with you more details and information of this lens –

Offering moviemakers a powerful new creative tool, Sony has developed a new advanced Super 35mm / APS-C format power zoom lens that starts at 18mm wide angle and extends to 110mm at the telephoto end (27mm – 165mm equivalent in 35mm format[1]), with 6.1x high zoom ratio even with inner focus; while maintaining a constant F4 aperture throughout for beautiful depth of field effects and stable exposure control across the entire standard zoom range.

selp18110g-1

From the PXW-FS7 professional camcorder to interchangeable-lens cameras such as α7 series and α6300, the SEL18110G top quality G LensTM delivers image quality that will satisfy the most demanding of professional users. It consists of 18 elements in 15 groups, including 6 aspherical elements and 3 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements. It also features a highly intricate 7 blade circular aperture design that delivers extremely high resolution image quality, particularly suited to professional 4K movie shooting.

The SELP18110G is the second lens[2] to benefit from Sony’s Smooth Motion Optics (SMO) design and construction, which has been developed to eliminate unwanted image shifts while operating the lens during movie shooting. SMO addresses three particular aspects on lens operation that can have a significant impact on movie quality: Focus Breathing, where shifts in angle of view during focusing are minimised by an internal focus mechanism; Focus Shift, where small shifts in focus that can occur while zooming are eliminated by precise focus tracking adjustment; and Axial Shift, where axial image shifts while zooming, are minimised by a constant length design.

selp18110g-4

The high level of operability and quiet operation of the new lens make it a compelling proposition for its integration into professional movie production environments. Its three separate rings offer control over focus, zoom, and aperture, with optimal torque for a satisfying responsive, professional feel. Both servo and responsive manual mechanical zoom are fully supported and the zoom ring direction is switchable to match individual user preferences. The lens length remains constant during any changes making it easy to use with matte boxes and other lens accessories. A first for α lenses, the SELP18110G has a 0.8mm pitch focus gear built right onto the lens, providing direct compatibility with standard focusing accessories.

Optimum optical performance and operability are complemented by a dust and moisture-resistant design1, making the lens ideal for location use. The SELP18110G further offers extra versatility thanks to Optical SteadyShot™ technology that provides in-lens image stabilisation during handheld shooting. Its compact and lightweight[3] design also means that it is a truly mobile solution. Users can also achieve added flexibility when the lens is paired with the SEL14TC and SEL20TC teleconverters for 1.4x and 2.0x extension of focal range respectively.

The SELP18110G Super 35mm / APS-C power zoom lens for professional movie-makers and photographers will be available at all Sony Stores, Sony Centres and selected Sony authorised dealers from December 2016.

[1] With interchangeable-lens digital camera incorporating an APS-C type image sensor.
