Details

With an emphasis on speed and versatility, the Sony Alpha a6600 is a sleek-yet-fully-featured APS-C-format mirrorless camera well-suited for both stills and video. Sporting a revised 24.2MP CMOS sensor, the a6600 is capable of producing high-resolution photos and up to UHD 4K video with more efficient processing and faster focusing. The 4D FOCUS system, which covers 84% of the image frame, utilizes 425 phase-detection points along with 425 contrast-detection areas for especially quick and intuitive performance along with Real-time Eye AF for both photo and video. Complementing both stills and video, 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake with all mounted lenses to support working with slower shutter speeds.

Beyond imaging capabilities, the a6600 also sports a robust magnesium alloy body that is dust- and moisture-resistant to permit working in harsh environments. The compact profile incorporates a high-resolution XGA Tru-Finder 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder for bright, clear, eye-level viewing, and this EVF features a 120-fps viewing mode for smooth tracking of fast-moving subjects. A rear 3.0" 921.6k-dot touchscreen LCD monitor is also available and has a tilting design to benefit shooting from high and low working angles, and the touchscreen design allows for intuitive touch-to-focus control. For video, both headphone and microphone ports have been incorporated, too, for improved audio control. Additionally, for wireless remote control over the camera, or for just sharing imagery online, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC permits linking with a mobile device for intuitive wireless control.

Extremely fast autofocus

The Sony A6600 is able to achieve autofocus speeds of 0.02 seconds, which is incredibly fast! These speeds are achievable thanks to the densely grouped focus points that cover about 84% of the entire frame. Not only this, the Fast Hybrid Autofocus system uses advanced phase-detection and contrast-detection autofocus to allow for fast and accurate autofocus tracking.

Real-time Tracking and Eye Autofocus

Sony has incorporated their intelligent subject tracking algorithms to provide an impressively accurate real-time tracking to this camera body. The real-time eye autofocus will detect eyes at a moment’s notice and continuous track. Depending on the conditions that you find yourself in whilst shooting, you’ll see the focus area can automatically switch between your subject’s eyes and face. Equally, you can take full control and opt for a left or right eye tracking that will even work in unique conditions, for example, where a subject is partially covered or if the subject backlit by a bright light source. There is also real-time autofocus for animals that will help you capture beautiful images of your pets or wildlife.

Invaluable 5-axis image stabilisation

The very same system that is used on Sony’s full-frame counterparts has been implemented in the Sony A6600. 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.

Beautiful Image-Processing

Using the 24.2 Megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor and the BIONZ XTM image processing power enables you to create stunningly high-quality images with amazing clarity and detail. A notable mention is the skin tone feature that has been taken from Sony’s full-frame cameras that combined with the processing power in this body allows you to recreate lifelike skin tones in your images.

4K HDR Video Recording

Let’s get down to the fine details. This camera is capable of capturing some seriously stunning footage. It can shoot 4K HDR video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning which allows for oversampling to about 2.4x of the capture information that is needed for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). A Hybrid Log-Gamma capability makes for easy and immediate viewing without extra processing HDR images. Combining this with the real-time autofocus tracking and eye autofocus features means that you can accurately and reliably tracking your subjects without fear of dropping focus, whilst you deliberate on your next creative decision.

Versatile and robust.

Fitted with a high-resolution, 180° tilting rear touchscreen, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a situation where you cannot get the shot that you are looking for. The screen will tilt upwards 180° and 74° downwards, meaning that you can easily get those high up shots as well as the lower ones too, not to mention to selfie and vlogging options. The actual body has been made out of lightweight dust and moisture-resistant magnesium alloy meaning it is incredibly portable and versatile to the user.
