Sony has gone a long way towards addressing the issues many reviewers identified with the α6300. The deepening of the buffer memory will please sports shooters as well as bird and animal photographers as will the improvements to the stabilisation system.

Am comparing with the Sony Nex-7, of which I own 3 bodies.I dismiss DSLR cameras as inappropriate for my purposes. Film SLRs and DSLRs are too bulky and weighty, even APS-sensor DSLRs, to be carried when photography is not my sole purpose of travel and recreation.

Loving it so far, it feels great in hand, sturdy, and that IBIS, though not a total game changer, really helps with lenses that are manual or without image stabilization. I also love the Picture Profiles, as it does help for images you would like to change in photoshop or lightroom.

Most notably in-body image stabilization, touchscreen control, and a faster processor that makes the camera considerably more usable for fast-paced shooting. The focus -lock is amazing, 4K Videos and pictures are stunning. My first Sony camera and I am very mpressed

Great camera for video work....annoying that the shutter speed and f-stop settings wheels/dials change too easily if you brush them with your fingers

I have an a7RII, a6300 and now the a 6500. I've been using the 6300 and 6500 mostly for video. I bought the 6500 for the in body stabilization which works well. The touch screen doesn't add much functionality but the ability to move the focus point is a great feature.

I was a cannon user, and since trying out this camera, I can say I am now no longer a cannon user haha. This camera blew away my expectations, and allows me to take film or photography anywhere I go day or night. With my old cannon camera you could not even go indoors without noise.

If you are looking to purchase a camera for video and for photos this is the best camera to purchase. This camera is one of the best video cameras on the market with crisp 4K, and smooth cinematic slow motion with 1080p 120fps.

I bought this camera after reading so many good reviews about it. I was immediately disappointed by its ergonomic. Way too complicated to do any thing manually: focus/aperture/shutter speed (the basic of photography).

Fantastic for wildlife. I am using this solely for wildlife using the new Sony 100-400mm G Master. It sometimes take a second to get focus, but I believe this is due to the lens and the wide range that it has. It tracks birds in flight like nothing else!
