The A6500 has traditionally been well over £1,000, which is why the opportunity to get it for £649 isn’t to be missed.

That sensor produces rich and vibrant photos, with a pleasing amount of saturation without being too vivid, and also helps the A6500 shoot excellent 4K video too. In short, the A6500 is a superb all-rounder that’ll take smartphone-beating snaps in pretty much every situation.

Our review of the Sony A6500 said: “If you’re looking for a high-end APS-C-format compact system camera, it’s unlikely you’ll find much on the market that’s better than or equal to the a6500 in terms of the range of features it offers – especially at this price point.” And that was at its original price of £1,449.

Our conclusion added: “That’s especially true if you like to photograph the kind of subjects that the A6500 is geared towards – such as action, sports and wildlife. With an ability to produce fantastically high-quality images, to keep up with fast-moving subjects, and adding that long-awaited touchscreen, Sony delivers an exceptional camera for the price.”
