Best SD Cards for Sony A6600

In late August of 2019, Sony released a long-awaited update to the popular A6500 camera. While A6400 brought many new features, including faster and improved autofocus, animal Eye AF, flip-up screen and more, it lacks in-body image stabilization. This feature is loved by many and is now present in the A6600 that shares the 24MP sensor with the A6400. Besides in-body image stabilization, the A6600 also sports a headphone jack and much-improved battery that delivers more than 2.2x the performance! That being said, let’s take a look at some of the best SD cards for Sony A6600.

Without further ado, here are our recommended SD cards for the A6600:

It has a great sensor, 4K video recording, in-body image stabilization, flip-up screen, great autofocus, and many lenses to choose from.
