"Its a tool."

Something I never realized I needed till I had it. Does wonderfully with night shots handheld. As an old pro I therefore wanted a second body. The camera is fast, sharp, and most important to me - light. A shame since the video quality is very good.

Sony ILCE6500/B Final Thoughts

"Let's be clear."

I'm also really enjoying the Sony film simulation. Low Light video is very well done. The Sony ILCE6500/B phase and contrast system has it beat. That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Sony equivalents. I use it for vlogging, photoshoots, and pictorials on Instagram.
