Low Light Performance of Sony A6000 versus A6300/6500
How much better, if any, is the Sony A6300 and Sony A6500 versus the Sony A6000 when a higher ISO setting is needed (I assume 6300/6500 at least little better) while still retaining good photo quality? About the highest I seem to be able to set the ISO on my Sony A6000 without getting too grainy is ISO 4000.
I would never go beyond ISO 3200 on the A6000 and with both the A6300 and A6500 I felt comfortable going up to ISO 6400.
My experience was that the later models didn't have less noise, but the pattern of the noise was much less distracting. The best way I can describe it was that the A6000 seemed to have a very uniform pattern of noise that appeared like a screen over the image. On the A6300/A6500, the noise seemed much more varied across the highlights and lowlights, so it blended better.
I hope that helps.
