New a6500 features a 5-axis optical image stabilization, making it the first Sony APS-C sensor camera to offer all of the benefits of advanced in-body stabilization, which include a shutter speed advantage of approximately 5 steps. It is compatible with E-mount lens and several A-mount lenses as well. The feature previously available only on high-end cameras such as A7 II or A7r II.

Sony A6500 features a 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor that works together with a BIONZ X image processor and achieve an impressive sensitivity range of ISO 100-512009. The buffer has been significantly increased, allowing the camera to shoot at 11 frames per second for around 300 JPEGs or 100 Raw+JPEG frames. Along with 425 phase detection AF points that are densely positioned over nearly the entire image area. On the video recording, A6500 now offers 4K video recording.

F1.8-2.8 lens, but there is a huge upgrade on the mechanism when it comes with a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines the respective advantages of focal-plane phase detection AF and contrast detection AF and ultimately enables the camera to lock focus in as little as 0.05 seconds, integrated BIONZ X image processor and also equipped with a new front-end LSI chip that maximizes processing speed, expands the memory buffer and optimizes image quality, in particular at high ISO settings. Sony RX100 V

Sony RX100 Mark V can shoot 4K UHD from a 5028 x 2828 pixel resolution, means it oversamples by 1.3x in each dimension (1.7x overall), to give highly detailed 4K footage.
