At the heart of both cameras is a 24.2MP Exmor CMOS image sensor, the latest BIONZ X image processor and the front-end LSI implemented in Sony’s full-frame cameras. This powerful trio combines to deliver all-round enhancements in image quality and performance across all areas of photo and video capture.

Both cameras offer an ISO range of 100-32,000 (expandable to 102,400) lightning-fast autofocus acquisition and a razor-sharp AF system, ensure reliable focusing in even in the most challenging light conditions. Both new models also benefit from Sony’s ‘Real-time Tracking’ which utilises Sony’s latest algorithm, including AI-based object recognition, to ensure that subjects can be captured with excellent accuracy, even via the touch panel on the rear screen.

While both cameras have the ability to shoot 4K video up to 30fps and 1080p at up to 120fps, the A6600 features ‘Real-time Eye AF’, the latest version of Sony’s acclaimed Eye AF technology, which detects and processes eye data in real-time, resulting in improved accuracy, speed and tracking performance. It’s also larger and comes with a few additional perks that will appeal to experienced photographers.

Sony also recently added two new lenses – the E 16-55mm F2.8 G standard zoom lens and the E 70-350mm F4.5-6.3 G OSS super-telephoto zoom lens – to their lens family, giving Alpha shooters even more flexibility.
