Hot on the heels of Canon announcing their new mirrorless camera, it looks like Sony has got a couple of new mirrorless cameras as well. Now, these aren’t part of Sony’s A7 or A9 series of mirrorless cameras, so if you’re in the market for a full-frame camera, you might be disappointed.
However, if you’re looking to either get into photography or want to upgrade your existing camera, then these cameras might be for you. They come in the form of the Sony A6600, which will be Sony’s flagship camera for this lineup, and also the Sony A6100, which will be the entry-level model.
Starting with the Sony A6600, this camera will feature a 24MP APS-C sensor and will use Sony’s BIONZ X image processor. It will also come with a 425-point hybrid autofocus system, a 3-inch touchscreen display, and also 11 fps burst shooting. There is also the ability to record 4K video at 30 fps. It will also come with in-body image stabilization, a larger grip, and will also sport a larger battery.
As for the A6100, this camera is designed to be an entry-level model so don’t expect it blow you away with its features. It will also sport a 24MP APS-C sensor with the BIONZ X image processor, the same 425-point hybrid autofocus system, 3-inch touchscreen display, and a slightly lower ISO range that maxes out at 51,200 instead of 102,400. There will also not be in-body image stabilization.
In terms of pricing, the Sony A6600 will be priced starting at $1,400 for body-only, while the Sony A6100 will be almost half of that at $750 for body-only.
