I couldn't see any difference in my first test.

Pricing on the Sony a6500: B&H | Amazon

After seeing Cinema5D’s latest post about the a6500 firmware update improving movie mode Steadyshot I thought I would share my findings as well.

From Sony on 1.04 firmware:

“Improves image stabilization performance in movie mode”

As you can see from my 3 tests I didn’t see any difference. But perhaps it fixes the IBIS issue I and others had with the a6500.

Download the 1.04 firmware here.

I think the a6500 is a great little camera, this past summer I used it a lot more than my Sony a7rii. a6500 has better AF which I use a lot.
