Sensor: The sensor of both the camera look same, the ISO range and the number of Phase AF points inside the camera is exactly same. Despite of same sensor we expect a better low-light performance from Sony A6500 since the camera features new LSI to boost light-gathering abilities to give clean and clear ouput while shooting at low-light condition, and increase readout speeds to benefit video recording.

Sony introduced 5-axis image stabilization in the Sony A6500 camera that combats with five types of Camera shake. The camera offers you 5-stop of image stabilization as rated by CIPA. And hence combine with OSS lenses you will get added benefit.

Sony increased the Buffer size of the Sony A6500 camera so that you can capture continuous burst of 304 JPEG frames or 107 frames in a single click. Whereas you can see the Sony A6300 camera despite of having same burst rate, it remains limited to 44 frames in JPEG and 21 frames in RAW mode.

While recording a 4K video both camera does a full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 20 megapixels of information – approximately 2.4×5 (6K equivalent) as many pixels as 4K UHD and then oversamples the information to produce high quality  footage with exceptional detail and depth.  But we have seen the overheating issue of the Sony A6300 camera so we do hope this time Sony A6500 won’t show-up any overheating signs.

Touch-Screen introduce in Sony A6500 camera and now users have to do a single touch to capture a snapshot. Its allows you to for immediate focus point selection.

Use Display as Touch Pad – While you have your eyes on viewfinder you can use the display as touch-pad to select your desired AF smoothly and intuitively.

Both camera offers XGA OLED Tru-Finder with approximately 2.4 million dots that offers exceptional corner-to-corner visibility.

Conclusion: The Sony A6500  is a true flagship camera and it does have a lot of improvements compared to its predecessor Sony A6300. It will cost you more, but you get new camera with more Buffer, LSI integration for faster processing and noise reduction. You also get 5-axis image stabilization system and new multi-function touch display unit. We highly recommend you to get this camera for new users.

Begining with megapixel, as uypu can see the Fuji as well as the Sony A6300 features same 24 MP resoltuion.

However keep in mind that the sensor architecture of both the camera is entirely different.

The Sony A6300 Sensor analysis

The Sony A6300 uses 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor pairs with the BIONZ X image processor, the image processor help the camera to boost its ISO range upto 51200. The sensor of the Sony A6300 camera uses thin copper wiring and enhanced circuit processing to boost low light-performance of the camera, reduce color noise as well as low-light noise, and increase readout speeds. The camera can shoot images upto 11 frames per second and with AF support the camera limits the continuous shooting speed to 8fps.

The Fuji X-T2 Sensor analysis

The Fuji X-T2 features  24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor which comes with a randomized pixel array that elimiates the use of low pass filter inside the camera. The sensor mimic the organic film pattern and gives out stunning images. The camera with the help of its X-Processor Pro the camera can shoot upto 11 fps with battery grip and 8fps of shooting with continuous AF.

Auto Focus System

Despite of being a bit older product the Sony A6300 have more AF points (425 vs 325) compared to the Fuji X-T2 camera. The Sony A6300 covers more more AF screen compared to Fuji X-T2 camera.

4D Focus in Sony A6300

4D Focus system inside the Sony A6300 – the Sony A6300 camera uses 4D auto-focus system that enables 425 Phase AF points and 169 contrast-detection areas.

AF speeds of Fuji is up to 0.08 seconds And Sony AF speed is upto 0.05 seconds, that clearly indicates in standard lightning condition the Sony A6300 will perform better.

4K
Both camera record 4K video and supports raw recording modes S-Log3 Gamma / F-Log Gamma. Without going to details I must inform you that Sony A6300 does have some overheating issue when used to record 4K video at average room temperature. You can look at the matter here

Price Difference
Sony A6300 is under $1K camera whereas for Fuji X-T2 you have to pay approx $1.6K, that cealry means you have to pay $600 extra if you want to get Fuji X-T2.

Verdict: Both camera features excellent core specification, but if you are a still shooter we recommend you to get Sony A6300 camera, that features excellent core specification as well as low price, Fuji X-T2 recommended for Still as well as Video lovers to record videos without worrying about overheating issue.

Both the camera are totally different, Canon 7D Mark II built with a 20MP Dual pixel CMOS AF sensor, powered by Dual Digic 6 image processor and features a ISO range upto 512000 on the other hand the Sony A6300 features a newly developed CMOS Exmor sensor fabricated with 425 Phase AF points that gives you blazing fast AF speed during still and video shooting.

Before we jumop to any decision yet, let’s take a look at the specification chart and High ISO test images of both the camera.

From the specification we can clearly see that Sony features bit more resoltuion as well as bit bigger sensor size. However despite of having almost same sensor size and ISO range the Sony A6300 is picking up more details during High ISO Test compared to Canon 7D Mark II camera.

The shutter range of the Canon 7D Mark II camera is borad compared to Sony A6300 as well as both of the camera almost have same continuous shooting speed.

The Major difference can be seen in the video section where we can see Canon 7d Mark II is limited to full HD video recording on the other hand the Sony A6300 can record 4k videos.

Now let’s have a look on the High ISO test samples.

Sony A63000 vs Canon 7D Mark II image comparisonWe don’t notice any major difference between the image quality of both the camera but we have to say we are noticing bit more details in the Sony A6300 image quality captured at ISO 6400.

The ISO 51200 image samples of both the camera is useless, I am not able to understand why companies unlock useless ISO stops, may be a just marketing thing.

At the end we have to say that Sony A6300 is a clear winner, if we look at the core specification of the camera the Sony offers you better AF system compared to Canon 7D Mark II camera as well as better image quality.

Sony A6300 Over Heating Issue

Sony-A6300-PDF-manual-imageSony A6300 overheating issue has been surfaced over the web, according to camera users Sony A6300 camera overheats during video recording and automatically shut down.

Still we don’t have any word from Sony but we do hope they will issue press release related to the overheating problem. However the overheating problem in Sony camera is not new if we remember the problems of a33 and a55 cameras.

Take a look what other websites are saying

“Sadly pros can’t even rely on the A6300 as a B-camera due to the overheating, especially not for any kind of live filming or interview work at all.” (eoshd)

“Unlike my a5100 where i could just turn the switch on/off and it would just keep on shooting with a6300 if i turn it off and on the message appears again that it overheated and the camera shuts down. waited no kidding 3-4 min and turn it back on… same isssue turned off in less then 1 min.” (dpreview user forum)
