Which camera for my needs

I mainly shoot video, but i still get calls for alot of parties, mainly candid shots, informal, not wedding oriented/thank god.

So i need a good camera for that type of stuff, easy to use, great pics.
I shoot all manual on my sony HD cameras, but id be curious if on the sony A63/6500 if i need to learn all the manual settings or for the type of stuff id be shooting, will the shots look good going all auto?
I was looking at the A6300 till the 65 came out, which has a 55/210 lens kits or a 16/50 lens kit. 
I really dont need to invest in alot of lens' just want one that best fits the type of shoots ill be doing.
Im sure ill shoot some HD/4k with it when i dont feel like lugging my Sony ex1r.
Any helpful input welcome

Are you mostly filming indoors? What type of lighting is used (ie: controlled, low-light, etc.)?

gary most of the events are parties, indoors, requiring flash on camera. how good is that small flash on the camera?i also have the nikon sb800 flash.

like i said, its for informal type events, candid shots.
