Expert Reviews

The Sony a6600 looks an excellent camera for video and vlogging, and its stunning AF, in-body image stabilization and large battery make it suitable for demanding stills photography. However, its still image quality is good rather than class-leading, which is a significant shortcoming given the a6600 is up against some terrific and more keenly-priced rival cameras, and while its video performance is broadly good, its marred by pronounced rolling shutter effect and pretty ordinary video specifications by today's standards.

At times the Sony A6600 is frustrating, a couple of changes to the control arrangement could improve its handling enormously, but it’s capable of delivering excellent-quality images and video. It has an extensive feature set and decisive, accurate focusing in both stills and video shooting.

Quote:You say that the camera gives "Great image quality" and yet suggest that it would be better with a different sensor. Can you explain why please? Hi Ray, yes the camera gives great image quality, however, considering the camera is Sony's flagship camera, and Sony are the leaders in sensor technology, it's a shame it doesn't feature a BSI CMOS sensor, as this would take the image quality to the next level. As we said in the conclusion, considering APS-C BSI CMOS sensors are available, and in use by other people, why isn't Sony using the best available sensors in it's flagship product?

Sony’s new flagship APS-C camera, the A6600, is packed to the gills with features, with an emphasis on keeping your shots still and focused. Being compact, weatherproof, capturing images with 24.2 megapixels to play with, and 4K video—the Sony A6600 is shaping to be the best travel camera yet. Sony A6600 Review Check Price Why We Like It – Sony A6600 Review The Sony A6600 is packed with technology to keep images steady, even when energized—pairing well with its 24.2MP sensor and 4K video capturing capabilities. Pros Superb image quality Amazing battery life Autofocus system is very accurate Cons A tad expensive Not for beginners Performance After taking a few A6600 samples, we noticed post processing effects took a back seat compared to other APS-C cameras such as the Canon EOS 6D Mark II. And with a battery life capable of shooting 720 images, there were plenty of examples to view. Dynamic range, in particular, kept every shot as close to the original shot as possible. When fiddling with its high ISO range, low light shots were clear, given the light was captured as is and not altered. The Sony Alpha A6600 Mirrorless Camera most impressed us with its real-time tracking. Taken from full frame Sony cameras, the in-body image stabilization system is so smart at staying glued to your subject, even as they move. Part of that performance is thanks to its rolling shutter. This is particularly nice with its 11fps continuous shooting. You can even take advantage of Real-Time Eye AF when recording videos in 4K or full HD. Design With the Alpha A6600 Sony kept the design small and compact, which is impressive considering mirrorless cameras tend to be on the larger side. However, Sony still included a hump to grip the camera. A camera such as the Canon PowerShot ELPH 180 is smaller, yes, but lacks any real grip, increasing the chances of an accident. This also makes the menu system easier to navigate through. You’ll find a memory card slot, too, which you’ll need for fitting large files. It’s lacking waterproof properties like the Olympus TG-5, but does have a weatherproof shell. Value The autofocusing system alone gives the Sony A6600 great value, and that’s without considering its 24.2 megapixels and 4K video capturing capabilities. Its performance is well-worth the price—but only in the right hands. It even competes well against its competetor’s Fujifilm X-T3. While technically speaking, the X-T3 is much better by a small margin, Sony’s A6600 has a bigger battery. You’re still shooting highly detailed images, but for much longer than others in its bracket. If pricing is an issue, consider the Panasonic Lumix FZ80; it’s a few stages behind in performance, but at a fraction of the price. Sony A6600 Review Wrap Up For its price, the Sony A6600 isn’t suited for inexperienced hands. Instead, the performance behind its image quality and video quality, including a host of video features, make the Sony A6600 ideal for vloggers. When you aren’t vlogging, its battery life will last for over 700 shots, while the AF system will help keep the frame steady.
