The Sony a6600 is packed with features that deliver serious results in just about any shooting situation. Fast autofocus, a capable 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, 4K video recording, and a high-capacity battery provide the image performance you demand in a sleek, compact system.
Wide AF area, super-fast AF speed and steady subject tracking
Densely 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 11fps
Shoot at up to 11fps with minimal display lag, and 8fps with live view, in bursts of up to 1164 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 peace
When the situation calls for absolute quiet, silent shooting with no shutter noise is possible at up to 8fps, even in AF-C mode. Used with Real-time Eye AF or with Real-time Tracking it dramatically expands your range of shooting options.
Initiate tracking in an instant
Initiate 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 tracking
The camera's tracking systems rely on unique AI-based subject recognition algorithms. These process spatial information consisting of colour, 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 human
Even 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 animal
The 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 touch8
Not 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 transition
Depending 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 Tracking
With the Touch Tracking function you can simply touch the monitor to initiate Real-time Tracking for either stills or movies.
High image quality by design
Exmor™ APS-C CMOS sensor and latest-generation BIONZ X™ image processor
The 24.2-megapixel10 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.
True-to-life 4K HDR (HLG) movie recording
Full-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.
Interval Shooting to create time-lapse movies
The 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 support
The 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 colour grading in post-production.
Slow and Quick Motion recording
You 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.
High-capacity Z battery supports long-duration shooting
To 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 body
The 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.
