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 contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). -detection AF to achieve a world-leading 0.02-s(2) 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 11 fps(3) with minimal display lag, and 8 fps(3) 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.


How optical image stabilisation works

The 5-axis in-body optical image stabilisation mechanism used on Sony's 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 stabilisation equivalent to a 5-step(9) faster shutter setting.


High image quality by design

Exmor™ APS-C CMOS sensor and latest-generation BIONZ X™ image processor

The 24.2-megapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints.10 APS-C image sensor is optimized for highly efficient light collection, a wide sensitivity range and low-noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. performance even at high ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)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 sensitivity

Across 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 colour reproduction

Algorithms inherited from Sony's highly regarded full-frame cameras are responsible for the α6600's faithful colour reproduction. Depiction of human skin tones has been significantly improved, as have the vibrant colours of flowers. Jaggies and false colours are also suppressed. 


Versatile movie-making capabilities

Full-pixel readout with no pixel binning enables high-resolution 4K movie recording(1), 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(11), 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.


Tell your stories in your own way

The 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.     


Notes:

(1) 3840 x 2160 pixels. A Class 10 or higher SDHC/SDXC card is required for XAVC S format movie recording. UHS-I (U3) SDHC/SDXC card is required for 100 Mbps. Connect this product to an HDR (HLG) compatible Sony TV via a USB cable when displaying HDR (HLG) movies.

(2) Based on Sony research, CIPA-guideline-compliant internal measurement with an E 18–135-mm F3.5–5.6 OSS lens mounted, Pre-AF off and viewfinder in use.

(3 )Up to 11 fps in continuous “Hi+” mode and up to 8 fps in continuous “Hi” mode. Maximum fps will depend on camera settings.

(4) With "Hi+" continuous shooting mode. Sony internal measurement.

(5) Maximum fps will depend on camera settings. Some distortion may occur with fast-moving subjects or if the camera is moved sideways rapidly while shooting.

(6) AI (artificial intelligence) including machine learning technology is used.

7) Still images only. Does not work with all types of animal. Tracking and right/left eye selection are not available.

(8) The selected eye cannot be toggled while the shutter button is half-pressed. Touch Tracking should be selected in advance for touch operation.

(9) Based on CIPA standard. Pitch/yaw shake only. With Sonnar T* FE 55 mm F1.8 ZA lens mounted. Long-ExposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. Noise Reduction off.

(11) Wi-Fi does not work during Interval Shooting.
