I know is not but very similar and not worth it £300 extra, also I would not rely on sony cashback, they trying everything not too pay, I used to claim 3 times during past few campaigns, all genuine amazon purchases, was blacklisted and according to their terms they indirectly called me a fraudster.

have claimed sony cashback many times with no problems - did you try and claim too many times in the same period which isnt allowed?

someties its silly to look at rare price drops like a6300 @ 399 - its not common so doesn't help now
but its happened a few times so may happen again i agree

but if you want a camera now then the a6300 is 649 after cashback right now - aka the same price

depends on what your time is worth and the features which you can get at the relative price points at a given time

ibis, better grip, touch screen, another custom button, think another metering mode from top of my head might be valuable to some

Always trying to comply with terms 3 diferrent products during each compaign, not sure what triggered red flag, when I tried to find out what the problem is they always dipplomatically said don't bother you did not comply with their terms and conditions, I am suspecting there were too many fraudent amazon claims, I think they even stopped once amazon entries.
For 599 you well not get more technology (and quality) from a camera

so you were claiming the max number of items per period over a number of periods? may look a bit dodgy
so they refused to honour cashback or told you not to bother again?

Yea they refused my last 3 claims so possibly they will reject any further claims, 6500 is better than 6300 for sure, it using same 4d tracking system like other high end but at this price point (no cashback) you can get full frame for few hundred extra

Still cheap at fifty quid more. And if being a 'fanboy' means that you are enjoying a good product then guilty. I also have some 1990 Contax cameras and an Olympus and I am 'fanboys'" of those too! If I'm a boy...

every chance you get you proclaimed how great a6000 is, now its a6500 turn
A6700 being announced next week!
On the fence with this camera. Really fancy it but sony are announcing 2 new aps-c cameras very soon. I'm a sucker for having the latest and greatest but for 650 quid you're not going to get much better than this beauty

What's the difference with this and the rx 100 series Mark 4 or 5? Which is better?

neither is better - they are different just
rx100 is much smaller, cant swap lenses
a6500 is much bigger, can swap lenses to get different 'zooms' and increase image quality etc

Which would be best for image quality, and does this have WiFi, nfc
Bavy22/08/2019 09:36

this has a much bigger sensor so much larger potential for better image quality - all depends on lens (and user)
has wifi and nfc, depends what you want to do with them though
I have Read lot off the rx 100 series been best compact, and few people I know swear by it, quite confusing then you have this, I have had a Sony hx 20 compact which has served me well, I need a good upgrade with with best picture quality

but the thing is THIS camera isn't a compact so even if rx100 IS the best compact it doesn't mean anything in terms of this camera

re the hx20, not sure if you are aware that the zoom is only equivalent to about 3x on your camera - its higher quality but lower range

Also animal eye detection. As someone who mostly films wildlife I'd love to upgrade my a6300...which I purchased for £600 4 or 5 years ago and was certainly worth it. Anyone want to swap?
These are great. Good price, not Prime Day £849 (£549 after cashback) but still a lot of camera for your money.

Re. Sony cashback. They always pay out.
The £300 cashback is guaranteed.

The AF on the a6500 is pretty much as good as the a6400, even without the 'animal eye' update, it's blisteringly fast and has a huge buffer so you'll get pretty much as good results.

nah was 50, i think what happened is they had it at 949 then made it 899
so when they reduced they it they sent 50 to everyone forgetting that some got it at 899
