There are a bunch of savings across Sony's camera portfolio right now – but it's this one on the A6500 that really stands out. Not only do you get £300 off on the price of the body, but a further cashback offer shaves off another £300.

Pretty good, right? Prior to today the body was retailing for £1,249, so this double saving brings the price down to a pretty incredible level; we've not seen it drop this low before. 

From video to sports, the A6500 shoots it all

So who is the A6500 for? With excellent 4K video, a superb autofocusing system, 11fps burst shooting, five-axis image stabilization and more, it's pretty damn good for a whole raft of different genres. 

What really splits it from its peers, however, is that 425-point phase-detect AF system, which does a brilliant job to track moving subjects all across the frame. Combined with 11fps burst shooting and a generous buffer, it's really at home when used to capture fast-paced sports or any other kind of action.

The A6500 sits at the top of the tree in Sony's APS-C series of mirrorless cameras, and it's a particularly strong camera for tracking moving subjects and video. This strikingly good deal sees its asking price almost halve; just pay £899 today and claim a further £300 cashback from Sony to knock that down further to just £599. Given its £1,500 RRP, that's pretty damn good.

Video is another strong point. You can capture 4K footage at 24/25p without any crop factor, and the fact that what's output comes from initially oversampled footage means you get even better results than normal. Plus, if you want to shoot in Full HD or shoot at 120fps for slow-mo output, the A6500 will be happy oblige.

With the further bonus of a high-quality EVF, a tilting touchscreen and redesigned menus, the A6500 is a camera that wants to make things as easy as possible when you're out shooting so that you can just concentrate on getting the shots you want.
