Sony continues to push the limits of compact full-featured cameras with their introduction of two new exciting models. These impressive new cameras will be available for pre-order Monday October 10th.

The RX100 series continues to set new bars for pocket compacts, and this fifth generation model features the world’s fastest AF and continuous shooting1 speed and most AF points on a compact camera. The new α6500, a compact mirrorless camera, brings a new level of performance to this space as well, with in-camera 5-axis optical image stabilization, touchscreen operation and a 24.2 MP Exmor® CMOS sensor.

With touchscreen functionality, 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus, 5-axis image stabilization and a host of other new features the new α6500 joins Sony’s APS-C mirrorless lineup as the flagship model. It shares the same unrivaled 4D FOCUS™ system as the α6300 camera, which can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds, as well as 425 phase detection AF points that are densely positioned over nearly the entire image area.

As our flagship APS-C camera, it far exceeds the performance threshold of any camera in its class, and many above its class as well,” said Neal Manowitz, Vice President of Digital Imaging at Sony Electronics.
