Announced Aug 28 ... Sony a7C review. This larger battery offers up to approximately 810 shots, which is about 2.2x better than the battery life of the A6400 and A6500 cameras, which use Sony's smaller W-type battery. Sony's new flagship APS-C E-mount mirrorless camera, Improved ergonomics, including a larger front grip, 24.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS APS-C image sensor, Latest-generation Bionz X image processor, Up to 11 frames per second continuous shooting, 425 phase-detect autofocus points covering around 84 percent of the image area, Real-time eye-AF and real-time AF tracking, 4K/30p video recording with eye-AF, HLD HDR recording and more, High-capacity Z battery for up to 2.2x more battery life than A6500. There is no front command dial, so when shooting in manual mode, the rear control wheel acts as a command dial in conjunction with the traditional dial above the thumb grip. Further, the autofocus points cover about 84 percent of the image area, which should make it easier to track moving subjects throughout the frame. When shooting in low light, the A6600 is rated to focus from around -2 EV to 20 EV (ISO 100 at f/2.0), so it should prove fairly capable in low light. Fujifilm may now offer phase-detect AF across the entire frame, but Sony’s eye and overall tracking software remains the most confident in my view. The Sony a6600 is an E-mount mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with an 24MP APS-C sensor. With its Fast Hybrid AF, Sony claims that the A6600 can achieve focus in as little as 0.02 seconds. The A6600 becomes the first Sony APSC body to use the company’s higher capacity FZ100 battery pack, increasing the life to 810 shots under CIPA conditions, roughly double the A6400 and more in fact than the full-frame bodies which use it. At this point it's reasonable to wonder how much of the A6600 is really new, as many features are shared between the A6400, A6500 and A6600 cameras. As you can see, the IBIS works well when there’s little or no movement of the camera. It’s paired with the latest BIONZ X processor. The A6600 includes quite a few video features for its class, including 4K/30p video recording plus support for HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) video. I’m also disappointed to find the hotshoe doesn’t support a digital connection with the new microphone launched with the A7r IV (although you can still use it in analogue mode). The X-T4 and the A6600 use the APS-C format (the sensor size is 23.5mm × 15.6mm). Above: The A6600 becomes the second body in the A6000 series to offer built-in stabilisation, inheriting the exact same capabilities as the A6500. Some may be disappointed the resolution’s not increased, but in terms of photo quality I have no complaints as while Fujifilm’s current lineup offers 26 Megapixels and Canon’s pushed the boat out to 32.5 on the M6 II, I feel 24 or thereabouts remains a sweet-spot for resolution, noise and dynamic range on an APSC sensor and you can see a broad range of photos on my samples page. Any photo editing software will damage this data. Considering its power supply, the A6600 uses a different type of battery than its predecessors, Sony's NP-FZ100 rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Internal video is recorded at 4:2:0, although 4:2:2 video recording is possible via clean HDMI output. The A7 III sensor has a BSI structure (back-illuminated) whereas the A6600 chip features a copper wiring layer to improve transmission. Further, the A6600 processes images in 16-bit before outputting a final 14-bit raw file, which Sony states results in improved texture detail, shadow detail and tonal gradation. In total, the A6600 weighs 1.11 pounds (503 grams) with the larger Z battery inserted (more on that later) and with an SD memory card. The 3-inch touchscreen, which has only 921k dots, has an increased tilting range. The A6600 now includes a built-in intervalometer, but it drops Sony's in-camera Sweep Panorama support. When compared to the A6500, the A6600 includes a higher extended ISO (102,400 versus 51,200). All of those features, however, a… That slight difference makes this camera above all apc cameras recently launched. Above: Download the original file (Registered members of Vimeo only). I shot the video in S-Log3 and then graded some sections to reflect the vibe of the murky, overcast day. The Z battery is by far the highlight of the A6600 and its number one upgrade over earlier models. The A6600 utilizes a 4D Focus hybrid autofocus system, which incorporates 425 phase-detect autofocus points and 425 contrast-detect AF points. The X-T3’s grip may be smaller, but feels better to me personally. The A6600 can record at up to 100 Mbps bit rates in the XAVC S format. The A6600 includes a single SD/MSDuo card slot, which supports UHS-I rather than UHS-II. So you can film uncropped 1080 at 24, 25, 30, 50 or 60p, or at 100 or 120p with a mild crop for slow motion. In addition to the aforementioned mic and headphone jacks, the camera also includes Micro HDMI (Type D) and USB 2.0 (Micro-B) ports. The A6600 includes persistent real-time tracking and real-time eye AF. I’m really looking forward to your lens guide. The Sony A6600 boasts of the ability to lock focus in just 0.02 seconds You get 5-axis stabilisation and 11fps burst shooting The Sony A6600 is priced at Rs. In terms of wireless connectivity, the camera includes Wi-Fi , NFC and Bluetooth. The Sony A6600 is an upper mid-range mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, built-in stabilisation, 4k video, 11fps bursts with autofocus, and increased battery life. Further, the A6600 includes real-time tracking focus functionality, including real-time eye AF and real-time animal eye AF. This means that Sony A6600 provides 4K (Ultra-HD) video. Further, the camera includes real-time tracking and real-time eye AF during video recording. Above: in the first disappointment on a $1400 flagship body, the A6600 continues to employ a single SD card slot, and worse, it still won’t exploit the speed of UHS-II cards – an annoying decision for a camera that’s otherwise so effective for sports, action and wildlife, and after shooting a large burst you can be left waiting some time for the buffer to clear. In my full review I’ll help you weigh-up all of the options to help you find the right camera! These four main upgrades carry a premium of around $500 over the A6400. Above: Like other recent Sony cameras, the A6600 lets you choose from a variety of autofocus areas from a variable-sized single area through Zone to Wide where you hand over the reins entirely to the camera. This is great when filming 16:9 video as it fills the screen, but when shooting still photos in the native 3:2 shape, the image will be presented in a crop with black bars on the left and right sides. The Sony A6600 is an upper mid-range mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, built-in stabilisation, 4k video, 11fps bursts with autofocus, and increased battery life. Above: the A6600 becomes the first in the A6000 series to use Sony’s high capacity Z-series battery, and like the full-framers to debut the pack, it transforms the camera in use. However, I have to say this video is a bit disappointing. The A6600 also becomes the first APSC model in the range to sport a (long overdue) headphone jack, and it now additionally supports eye detection in movies. Do however note that their combined price is roughly the same as the full-frame A7 III fitted with the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 zoom, so literally something to weigh-up in comparison if you don’t mind the larger combination. Start with my video review below, or if you prefer scroll beyond it to the written version, then check out my quality results, sample images and final verdict pages! At the core of its imaging pipeline, the A6600 includes a 24.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor and Sony's latest Bionz X image processor. If you have never used a Sony camera, or are coming from a point and shoot style camera, or cell phone, than this is a must watch video! Like other recent Sony bodies, the A6600 allows you to tap to reposition the AF area – including when composing through the viewfinder – but not much else. The camera also features 425 phase and contrast autofocus points. Like most new cameras, the A6600 is equipped with Wifi and Bluetooth, the former allowing quick remote control, while the latter takes care of seamless location tagging via your phone. In terms of body design, the A6600 has an extended tilting range for its touchscreen and includes a headphone jack. On the top of the camera, there are a pair of custom buttons, a dedicated mode dial (with two custom mode slots) and a rear command dial. Sony A6600 shooters only have access to 4K30p or 1080p 120fps, just as in the A6300. 5 years in technology is a long time, and there are many photographers who wouldn’t even consider a camera that’s 1 year old, let alone 5. The A6600 also incorporates Sony's latest real-time eye AF and real-time tracking autofocus features. The A6600 records 4K HDR video with 2.4x oversampling to capture better sharpness. Announced in August 2 The A7 camera has an ISO range of 100 to 51200, with extended values going up to … The A6600 uses the APS-C format whereas the A7 III has a 35mm format sensor, which is about 2.3x larger. When using it as a selfie display, there is a slight bit of the display which is obscured by the top plate of the camera, but it's a very small portion of the screen. I just found your tutorial on the Sony a6600, which I recently purchased. The A6600 becomes the first A6000 model to sport a headphone jack and while it’s long overdue, I’m still pleased to see it here – along with the bigger battery, it’s another of the key upgrades over the A6400 and A6500. Like many new cameras, it combines or enhances elements from existing models, so at the heart is the 24 Megapixel sensor introduced on the A6300 with its broad and confident autofocus coverage, 11fps bursts and oversampled 4k video up to 30p. The Sony A6600 is built around the concept of speed and that is evident when considering the camera's autofocus and overall performance. Remember the resolution of the viewfinder doesn’t affect the image quality, but you do appreciate the extra detail when manually focusing and experience less moire on detailed scenes – I really noticed the difference when framing my wide-angle city views around New York. As Sony's new flagship APS-C camera, the 24.2-meagpixel A6600 has a lot to live up to. Esta es la Sony A6600 , ¿Es la mejor cámara Sony Alpha APS-C? For stabilization, the A6600 includes SteadyShot Inside 5-axis in-body image stabilization, a feature present in the A6500 but missing from the A6400. Imaging Resource © 1998 - 2020. The camera is 4.72 inches (120 millimeters) wide, 2.63 in. With Sony A6600, you can record your videos at a highest resolution of 3840 x 2160 at 30p,25p,24p fps and save in MPEG-4, AVCHD and XAVC S formats. Let's take a closer look at the A6600 and see what it offers. That said, it was less successful when I was walking and filming as I’ll show you later. Like the A6400, the viewfinder remains XGA in resolution, there’s only one card slot (albeit rotated within the chunkier grip in order to accommodate the bigger battery), and while 4k at 24 and 25p use the full sensor width and oversample from 6K’s worth of data, 4k at 30p still incurs a minor crop. Above: the larger battery means a larger grip to accommodate it and I welcome having more to hold onto with a small body. Above: Sony’s also one of the only companies besides Panasonic to offer unlimited movie recording times beyond the usual 30 minute limit, and while Panasonic reserves it for a handful of specialist models, Sony’s been rolling it out on everything since the A6400. The Sony A6600 is an upper mid-range mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, built-in stabilisation, 4k video, 11fps bursts with autofocus, and increased battery life. The Fuji model has slightly more resolution: 26.1MP versus 24.2MP on the Sony. In addition to the body-only option, Sony sells the a6600 in a kit along with the E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS for $1,799.99, about $200 less than … Above: behind a flap on the left side you’ll find the A6600’s four ports: Micro USB, Micro HDMI and now both microphone and headphone jacks. The shutter block remains unchanged too with a top mechanical speed of 1/4000 when most rivals at this price boast 1/8000. In my tests the built-in stabilisation may not have delivered the eerie floating effect of the best models out there, but still proved beneficial for static shooting. This shifts the sensor to stabilise any lens you attach and like the A6500 before it, with variable results depending on your movement at the time. In terms of high speed video recording, the A6600 can record Full HD video at up to 120 frames per second and also includes a "Slow & Quick Motion" mode. All words, images, videos and layout, copyright 2005-2020 Gordon Laing. While it may look very similar to the A6400 and A6500, the new A6600 does add a fourth custom button to the camera body. You can see it here passing three hours with 8% of the battery remaining – I ended up recording 3 hours, 25 mins and 17 secs of 4k 24p at 60Mbit/s in a single clip measuring 89GB – seriously impressive stuff for anyone recording events, interviews or lectures, and way beyond anything its rivals can do – I keep going on about Fujifilm’s X-T3, but it can only record half hour 4k clips up to 30p and only two of them on a single charge. With Steadyshot enabled in the menu, the view is temporarily wobbly, but after a second or so of holding the shutter release down, the system kicks-in to deliver a far more stable view. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad, but just outclassed in resolution by a number of rivals, again including the Fujifilm X-T3 which sports a 3.69 Million dot panel that’s more typical on a flagship body in 2019. During this time the camera can still shoot and enter some menus, but some functions may be locked. Note the X-T3’s screen also tilts vertically, but additionally lets you angle it out a little to the side for easier framing in the portrait orientation at high or low angles. As Sony's flagship APS-C camera, the A6600 offers quite a few physical controls and customizable buttons. The A6600 is dust- and moisture-resistant, and the top cover, front cover, internal frame and rear cover are all constructed using lightweight magnesium alloy. Sony has long been saying that they will continue to support their APS-C mirrorless cameras and at an event last week in New York City, the company showcased their commitment to the format. First, the Fuji sensor has a different distribution of pixels. Like prior tilting Sony displays, the A6600's display does not tilt to the side. Burst speeds are unchanged from the A6300, which means a top mechanical speed of 11fps with autofocus or 8fps if you’d like live-ish feedback between frames. The camera also includes touch focus and touch shutter functionality. May not be used without permission. Above:the A6600 inherits the articulated screen mechanism of the A6400, allowing it to angle down by almost 90 degrees and up by 180 to face you for selfies or vlogging; this represents greater flexibility than the earlier A6500, although it’s matched by most models now including Sony’s own cheaper A6100. The video below was shot with the Sony A6600 in 4K at 25p and 100Mbs hand-held to test the in-body image stabilisation (IBIS). 2 This product is also known as ILCE-6600, ILCE-6600M, ILCE6600/B, ILCE6600M/B 3 ©2020 Sony Electronics Inc. Fans of 24p will be pleased Sony’s still allowing it when Canon’s strangely neglecting 24p on non-Cinema cameras. In terms of buffer depths, Sony rates the camera for 46 raw images at 11 fps and 116 JPEG images before the buffer fills, but we will verify these specs in our lab testing. But overall with stabilisation, much longer battery life and a headphone jack, the A6600 resolves pretty much all the major issues with the A6400 and becomes the most desirable APSC body in the series, especially when coupled with the new e 16-55mm f2.8 zoom launched alongside it. Above: The A6600 inherits the movie quality, video autofocus and unlimited recording of the A6400 before it, with the only new feature being support for eye-detection; since face detection already worked so well though, it’s not a significant upgrade over the cheaper model. Plus, a pair of new APS-C lenses, a 16-55mm f/2.8 standard zoom and a 70-350mm telephoto zoom lens, were also announced. In terms of additional shooting features, the A6600 retains its predecessors' same 1/160s maximum flash sync. Video looks superbly clear and pin sharp. When you are using an OSS-equipped lens, the lens handles two axes of correction while the camera corrects shake on the other three. Above: Set the camera to 4k and you can film uncropped footage oversampled from 6k’s worth of data in 24 or 25p, or you can opt for 30p which incurs a mild crop. Nikon Z TC-1.4x TC-2.0x teleconverter review. It looks a lot like Sony's other a6000-series models at first glance, but this one has the biggest battery and the best build quality of the bunch, even if the images it produces are broadly comparable to the less expensive options. Having gone hands-on with the A6600 in New York, the front grip does feel better and more comfortable. Fujifilm’s X-T3 has twin SD slots, both of which exploit UHS-II speeds, and it’s also one of the first aspects about the A6600 which might have you considering the full-frame A7 III instead. This allows the user to capture Full HD video at 24, 30 or 60 fps but change the playback speed ranging from 1 frame per second to 120 fps, which results in up to a 60x quick motion effect or down to a 5x slow motion effect. In this review I will be covering the Sony FE 200-600mm G OSS Lens from a Real World Perspective using the Sony A6600 which will yield me an effective 300-900mm range!! Sony quotes 810 shots under CIPA conditions – roughly double that of the A6400 and a tad more than the full-framers which use it – but I managed over 900 shots on a single charge including several minutes of video and Wifi use. 08/30/2019: Gallery Images added. As I mentioned before, it may seem a little odd to be writing a review of the Sony a6000 in 2020, several years after its release. Although both cameras give you an output of 24MP (6000×4000), the sensor found inside their bodies is different. This allows for improved image processing, speed and overall performance. SONY a6600 has IBIS which makes pictures more sharp and perfectly in focus. Reviews Beyond the studio tests Feature Articles and Videos see how we see Sample Galleries real world performance Field Test Videos Throwback Thursday Classic Cameras from Days Past What's that Noise? Above: The A6600 employs the 24 Megapixel APSC sensor introduced on the A6300 three and a half years earlier, which means it also inherits a broad array of 425 phase-detect autofocus points across the full height and 84% of the width – that’s pretty much the entire frame. Further, it offers improved ergonomics via a larger front grip. Since the main body design hasn’t changed, the A6600 inherits the 3in 16:9 shaped screen of its predecessors, making it wider than most. Sony announced two new APS-C cameras, including the flagship A6600 camera. Above: I mentioned it earlier, but it’s worth repeating that not only does the A6600 still only have one card slot, but it’s limited to UHS-I speeds, which means you can be waiting a while for a full buffer to clear after a long burst or a bunch of RAW images – you can see the images counting down in the top left corner here. For customizing the autofocus performance, the user can adjust the AF drive speed and AF tracking sensitivity for recording video. To be fair, Fujifilm’s X-T3 doesn’t have a popup flash either, but at least it includes a small bounceable flashgun in the box. by Jeremy Gray By sticking with the same capabilities as the A6300 from three years ago, Sony’s allowed rivals to now offer faster speeds, including the Fujifilms which offer 20fps if you switch to their electronic shutter, while Canon’s M6 II boasts a 14fps mode. 1 The α9 and Sony full-frame cameras that were released after the α9. Turning our attention toward continuous shooting performance, powered by the latest-generation Bionz X image processor, the A6600 is about 1.9 times faster at processing data than the A6500. ONLY ORIGINAL JPG or ARW files STRAIGHT from the camera will work. To make the test fair, and focus solely on IBIS, he paired each with a similarly specced lens with no optical stabilisation. In terms of video alone, I even managed to record a single 4k 24p clip lasting three hours and 25 minutes on a full charge. The image processor and improved LSI were first seen in the Sony A9, so it's interesting to see how Sony's latest and greatest tech improvements trickle down to their more affordable, and in this case smaller-sensored, cameras. 4k video is available at 60 or 100Mbit. At this continuous high shooting mode, the camera does not offer live view, but instead shows the most recently-shot image. You can double-tap to enlarge the view then push it around, but Sony really needs to extend its touch functionality on all models. Further, its autofocus system is improved, with the A6600 offering 425 PDAF and 425 CDAF points compared to the A6500's 425 PDAF and only 169 CDAF points. The 24.2 Megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor has a typical 1.5 times crop factor. Infuriatingly the chunky icons of the Function menu remain untappable, as does the main menu system, while in playback Sony ignores years of smartphone intuition by not even allowing you to swipe between images. The A6600 certainly shares a great deal with the A6400, including the same 24 Megapixel sensor, AF system, 11fps bursts, unlimited movie recording, XGA viewfinder and tilting touchscreen, but it adds more than just built-in stabilisation. SONY Alpha shutter/image counter. Grip and battery. As for the viewfinder, it is an XGA OLED EVF with 2.36M dots and 0.7x magnification. The stabilization is rated for up to five stops of shake correction. You still find both S-Log2 and S-Log3 as well as frame rates up to 120fps in HD and up to 30fps in UHD 4K. The way in which these two sensors are structured constitutes a more interesting difference. But where the A6400’s smaller battery ran out after around one hour’s worth of 4k, the bigger battery in the A6600 allowed me to record a single 4k 24p clip beyond three hours without even having to reduce the over-heating warning. The A6600 builds-upon the series so-far to become Sony’s most powerful APSC mirrorless camera to date. In this video I will go over the initial set-up of the Sony A6600 so you can skip the manual and get out there and start taking photos and recording videos as fast as possible.. With respect to the camera's operability while writing to the card, which has long been a sore spot with Sony cameras, the A6600 promises improved performance here, although during our hands-on time with the camera there were still some issues, which we will investigate further when we get extended time with the camera. If you'd like a real-time viewfinder, you can slow the camera down to 8 frames per second. #7 NO FEATURES FROM A7R4 Some of the features we hoped could be inherited from the flagship sibling the A7R IV were left out like the double function menu (still and video) or the profile saving on SD cards. Except some exotic 6K and 8K video recording cameras, 4K is the new standard in consumer video … The a6600 holds many of the same features found in prior models and in other Sony camera lines. Here’s an example I filmed in 4k 24p and it’s jam-packed with detail.
