The Sony a6600 is the company's top-of-the-line APS-C mirrorless camera, with 24MP of resolution and 4K video capture. 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.

The a6600 further differentiates itself by offering in-body image stabilization, which is still a rarity among APS-C cameras. This should help with stills shooting in low light, to be sure, but also combines with excellent autofocus tracking to make it the best crop-sensor video shooter Sony currently sells.

Despite its refinements, we still think the a6600 could benefit from some ergonomic updates to make it an easier camera to take control over.

Key features:

  • 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • Advanced, capable subject-tracking autofocus
  • In-body image stabilization
  • 2.36M dot OLED electronic viewfinder
  • 0.9M dot tilting touchscreen
  • Wi-Fi for image transfer, and NFC
  • 4K video capture with log profiles
  • USB charging
  • 810-shot battery life (per CIPA)

The Sony a6600 will be available on November 29th, 2019, at a suggested price of $1400/€1600 body-only, and $1800/€2000 with an 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens.
