Sony Announces A6100 and A6600 APS-C Cameras

Sony today announced two new APS-C mirrorless cameras at an event in New York. The A6600 is the new flagship camera, and it packs pretty much everything the A6400 has and adds things like in-body image stabilization, bigger battery, a headphone jack and real-time eye AF in video. However, it has the same 24 MP sensor, viewfinder, and burst shooting at up to 11 fps. Unfortunately, the A6600 still doesn’t have 4K recording at 60 fps, as this feature will likely appear in some more expensive model in the future.

The A6600 will hit the stores in November and will retail for about $1,400 in the United States for the body alone or for $1,800 in a kit with the 18-135mm lens.

Sony also unveiled a new entry-level camera that replaces the A6000. The A6100 actually has many features found in its more expensive cousins including the same autofocus system, 4K video recording, although you won’t get S-Log or HLG options on this one. It also has no in-body image stabilization, has a lower-resolution viewfinder, but we believe it offers a lot of value. The A6100 will retail for about $750 for the body, $850 in a kit with the 16-50mm lens, and $1,100 in a kit with both the 16-50mm and 55-210mm lens. It is going to be available in October. You can preorder both cameras below.
