Finally, a camera that can move with you. Sony recently launched its latest flagship APS-C mirrorless camera: the α6500, which follows the α6300.

Though it still has the same 425 auto-focus points, this time, the latest iteration can shoot up to 307 frames at 11 frames per second! Talk about being an action camera. This camera can capture everything you want—be it skateboarding at the park, BMX-ing on city streets, or even your backyard pick-up basketball game. Every stunt, every grunt will be immortalized in 24-megapixel glory.

And don’t worry about video capture. The α6500 camera shoots at 4K resolution using the full width of the image sensor. In video capture mode, it uses a Fast Hybrid AF system, which means whatever you want, whoever you want will always be in focus. You can finally bring out your hidden JJ Abrams. 

But don’t worry about causing motion sickness to your viewers: borrowing from its big brother, the Sony α7 II, the 5-axis optical image stabilization will make sure that your shots will be super clear even when the sun goes down.

The α6500 also offers a touchscreen, so you can swipe to view your photos, change settings, or even change the focus point in your shots. And of course, the electronic viewfinder of the α6500 is simply one of the best.

And what’s the best way to introduce a camera? Through food, of course! The α6500 was launched at Marmalade Kitchen where food and lifestyle photographer Gabby Cantero perfectly captured Rustic Mornings' Chef Portia Baluyut cooking for everybody. Gabby, who also gave tips on how to maximize the capabilities of the α6500, shot stunning slow-mos of the chef's famous paella. 

The Sony α6500 starts at P82,000 (body only).
