Expanded Sony Alpha A6500 Digital Camera Key Features:

Impressive Autofocus Capability

The A6500 uses Sony’s 4D FOCUS system, a lightning fast hybrid autofocus system that combines impressive phase detection with extremely accurate contrast autofocus. This allows the camera to capture and lock on to moving subjects in a fast 0.05 seconds! The A6500 also features 425 phase detection AF points, a high-density tracking system, and boasts a maximum buffer for continuous shooting of 307 frames!

5-Axis Image Stabilisation

The A6500 is the first Sony APS-C sensor camera to feature 5-axis image stabilisation. The five axis stabilisation that caters for pitch, yaw, horizontal, vertical and rotational movements is invaluable for both videos and stills. It works using Sony’s impressively accurate gyroscope system and will help you capture the best images and video that you possibly can.

Powerful 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS Sensor

With a 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS sensor and a BIONZ X image processor, this camera is able to have powerful processing power and achieve an impressive sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200. The BIONZ X image processor and newly developed front-end LSI ensure superior image and video quality with low noise even when using higher ISO settings, in particular those at high sensitivity values where other cameras typically struggle. The LSI is also responsible for the expanded buffer depth for continuous shooting.

Professional Video Capabilities

Able to shoot 4K (3840x2160p) video in the popular Super 35mm format on the full width of the image sensor, the A6500 uses full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 6K of information approximately 2.4x (20 MP equivalent) as many pixels as 4K UHD and then oversamples the information to produce high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Thanks to its Fast Hybrid AF system, the A6500 focuses exceptionally fast during move shooting, and offers touch focusing as well as adjustable AF transition speed and AF tracking sensitivity.

The camera supports the XAVC S codec during video shooting, which records at a high bit rate of up to 100 Mbps during 4K recording and 50 Mbps during Full HD shooting, ensuring maximum detail and clarity in both video formats. It can also record Full HD at 100fps at up to 100 Mbps, which allows footage to be reviewed and eventually edited into 4x slow motion video files in Full HD (25p) resolution with AF tracking.

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
