Making buzz around the camera community is the 2 new mirrorless camera by Sony, the A6600 and the A6100. The higher-end among the two is the A6600 aimed for the most demanding photographers and videographers while the A6100 are targeted at users who are looking to step up their game with interchangeable lens cameras.
In a nutshell, both cameras contain the same 24.2MP ExmorTM CMOS image sensor, the latest BIONZ XTM image processor with a front-end LSI implemented in Sony’s full-frame cameras, the a7 and a9 series. Both these cameras also have fast AF with 425 focal-plane phase-detection and contrast-detection AF points respectively. Of course, it has Real-time Eye AF too.
Sony’s new flagship APS-C mirrorless cameras, it comes with in-body stabilization like the A6500 but doubles the battery life with the new FZ100 battery. The A6600 would be more geared for videographers, offering the same 4K video capacity and log modes, but adding a headphone jack for audio. However, it’s only recording 4K at 30fps.
The A6100, on the other hand, is the new entry-level shooter on the market replacing the A6000. The A6100 offers 4K shooting without log modes. It does however set itself apart from the A6600 having a 180-degree flip screen which is odd since Sony has geared the A6600 to be better for video. But unfortunately, the real shame is that the A6100 has no in-body stabilization.
Both the Alpha 6600 and Alpha 6100 will be available in Malaysia on November 2019.
