Overview / Product Description
Sony a6600 E-mount APS-C Mirrorless Camera
A full-fledged toolkit for your imaginationThe α6600 packs in the features, to deliver what you need for just about any situation you encounter – fast AF, steady image stabilization and stunning image quality, a high-capacity battery and serious 4K HDR (HLG) movie shooting.
Ultra-fast AF and continuous shooting
Reliable and persistent AF
Wide AF area, super-fast AF speed, and steady subject trackingDensely distributed focus points cover around 84% of the image area, and the Fast Hybrid AF system combines the best of phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF to achieve a world-leading 0.02-s acquisition speed. When subjects are in motion, AF points densely positioned around the subject are activated for accurate tracking.
Fast continuous shooting with AF/AE at up to 11fpsShoot at up to 11 fps with minimal display lag, and 8 fps with live view, in bursts of up to 116 shots in JPEG (Standard) at one time. With your settings clearly previewed in the electronic viewfinder, and the virtually real-time display, it will elevate your action shooting to a whole new level.
Silent continuous shooting won't disturb the peaceWhen the situation calls for absolute quiet, silent shooting with no shutter noise is possible at up to 8 fps, even in AF-C mode. Used with Real-time Eye AF or with Real-time Tracking it dramatically expands your range of shooting options.
Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF
Initiate tracking in an instantInitiate Real-time Tracking by half-pressing the shutter, or simply select the subject by touch, to start tracking. You can also assign "Tracking On" to a custom key, and press it to start tracking.
AI-based subject trackingThe camera's tracking systems rely on unique AI-based subject recognition algorithms. These process spatial information consisting of color, pattern (brightness), and distance (depth) data, as well as tracking the subject's eye and face, all in real time at high speeds.
Real-time Eye AF for humanEven when your portrait subject is on the move, Real-time Eye AF provides continuous, stable eye detection and tracking to keep your scene in focus. It also works when the subject's face is partially hidden, backlit, or facing downward.
Real-time Eye AF for animalThe same eye-detection algorithms that make great portraits of people have been adapted to animals as well, to help you get beautiful pet portraits and wildlife shots.
Right/left eye AF selection by touchNot only can you prioritize the subject's left or right eye in settings, you can even do it with a simple touch to the camera's monitor screen.
Smooth focus transitionDepending on the condition of the subject you're tracking, the focus area will automatically and seamlessly switch between the subject's face and eyes.
Real-time Tracking activation with Touch TrackingWith the Touch Tracking function you can simply touch the monitor to initiate Real-time Tracking for either stills or movies.
5-axis optical image stabilization
Pitch and yaw controlCompensate for angular shake, also known as pitch and yaw shake, especially evident when shooting at longer focal lengths.
Horizontal and vertical axesCompensate for camera shake in the horizontal and vertical directions, most apparent at high magnifications such as macro shooting.
Roll compensationCompensate for roll, or rotational shake, most obvious in hand-held, long-duration movie shooting.
How optical image stabilization worksThe 5-axis in-body optical image stabilization mechanism used on our acclaimed full-frame cameras has been adapted as the stabilization unit for the APS-C sensor on the α6600. Relying on a highly accurate gyro sensor, it detects and compensates for camera shake along five different axes, including angular (pitch and yaw), horizontal, vertical and rotational, for stabilization equivalent to a 5-step faster shutter setting.
High image quality by design
Exmor APS-C CMOS sensor and latest-generation BIONZ X image processorThe 24.2-megapixel APS-C image sensor is optimized for highly efficient light collection, a wide sensitivity range and low-noise performance even at high ISO settings. In conjunction with the latest-generation BIONZ X image processing engine, it delivers superb image clarity and outstanding textural reproduction.
Low-noise performance for high ISO sensitivityAcross a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100–32000 (expanded to ISO 50–102400), the α6600 delivers excellent low-noise performance for high-quality images even in dimly lit settings.
Improved color reproductionAlgorithms inherited from our highly regarded full-frame cameras are responsible for the α6600's faithful color reproduction. Depiction of human skin tones has been significantly improved, as have the vibrant colors of flowers. Jaggies and false colors are also suppressed.
True-to-life 4K HDR (HLG) movie recording
Versatile movie-making capabilitiesFull-pixel readout with no pixel binning enables high-resolution 4K movie recording, while a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile supports instant HDR delivery. Sophisticated image stabilization completes the picture.
Keep the focus on your subjectWorking together, the camera's Fast Hybrid AF system, Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF maintain steady and dependable focus on your subject, so you can enjoy the more creative aspects of movie-making.
Interval Shooting to create time-lapse moviesThe camera's capabilities include built-in Interval Shooting, for time-lapse videos with a selectable shot interval of 1–60 seconds. Resulting images can be combined in high resolution on a PC, and viewed with a simple variable-speed preview function on the camera.
S-Log shooting supportThe S-Log3 and S-Log2 Gamma curves feature wide dynamic range (up to 1,300% of Rec. 709) to minimize whiteout and blackout and allow a wider scope for color grading in post-production.
Slow & Quick Motion recordingYou can record movies in slow motion (up to 5x) and quick motion (up to 60x) directly in the camera, or use 120fps Full HD video to create high-quality slow-motion footage in post-production.
Extend your reach with external touch operationsConvenient touch operations such as Touch Focus and Touch Tracking, that are available on the α6600's monitor, can still be accessed even when external monitors are connected to the camera.
Tell your stories in your own wayThe α6600 is designed for powerful film-making, so pros and enthusiasts alike can share their stories with the world. The 180°-tiltable display makes self-framing easy for vlogging or challenging shooting angles. Professional audio is also covered with an external mic jack and headphone jack for monitoring. And the improved grip ensures rock-solid, comfortable shooting for hours at a time.
Powerful, reliable, versatile
High-capacity Z battery supports long-duration shootingTo support longer shooting sessions, the α6600 comes equipped with the same high-capacity battery introduced with many of our full-frame cameras, while maintaining the camera's slim form.
Dust- and moisture-resistant magnesium-alloy bodyThe camera is resistant to dust and moisture, with a top cover, front cover, internal frame, and rear cover constructed from a lightweight but sturdy magnesium alloy.
Customization featuresThe camera's 11 buttons can each be assigned to one of 91 different functions, and functions can also be assigned to the control dial and wheel. My Menu lets you register 30 different menu items.
Imaging Edge Remote, Viewer, and EditElevate your photography with Imaging Edge desktop applications. Use "Remote" to control and monitor shooting live on your PC screen; "Viewer" to quickly preview, rate, and select photos from large image libraries; and "Edit" to develop RAW data into high-quality photos for delivery.
