α6600 premium E-mount APS-C camera
The α6600 packs in the features, to deliver what you need for just about any situation you encounter – fast AF, steady image stabilisation and stunning image quality, a high-capacity battery and serious 4K HDR (HLG) movie shooting.
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-sec. acquisition speed. When subjects are in motion, AF points densely positioned around the subject are activated for accurate tracking.
Shoot at up to 11fps with minimal display lag, and 8fps 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.
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 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.
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.

The 5-axis in-body optical image stabilisation mechanism used on our acclaimed full-frame cameras has been adapted as the stabilisation 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 faster shutter setting.
Exmor™ APS-C CMOS sensor and latest-generation BIONZ X™ image processor
The 24.2-megapixel APS-C image sensor is optimised 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.
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.
Algorithms inherited from our 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.
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 stabilisation completes the picture.
Working 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.
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.
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, and comfortable, shooting for hours at a time.
Elevate 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. Get the best from Sony RAW files, and manage your productions more efficiently.
