Newsshooter test: The new Sony A6500 has no more overheating issues!


Newsshooter tested if the new A6500 does overheat. In their A6500 vs A6300 head to head video you can see the A6500 running for 29min without any issues while the A6300s topped 18min earlier.

Sony appear to have fixed the single biggest complaint users have about its predecessor, the a6300. The new a6500 solves this with a new ‘Auto PWR OFF Temp’ setting. When set at ‘High’ it allows the camera to continue recording all the way up to its 29 min 50 second limit. According to Sony reps you can then start to record again immediately for another half hour in normal conditions. If you then start recording again a third time Sony make no promises about how long it will record for.

Sounds great!
