Includes Sony Real-Time Tracking technology, winner of Best Photo Innovation in the TIPA Awards 2020.
Once locked on with a half-shutter press, Sony's Real-Time Tracking AF Technology tracks the subject wherever it moves within the frame.
With Real-time EyeAF (for humans and animals) the camera will automatically pick up and lock onto the eye of the subject, when visible in the shot. It's speed and accuracy helped it to be awarded with the Best Photo Innovation certification at the 2020 TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) World Awards 2020.
High image quality by design
The 24.2-megapixel10 APS-C image sensor is optimised for highly efficient light collection, a wide sensitivity range and low-noise performance even at high ISO settings. In conjunction with the latest-generation BIONZ X image processing engine, it delivers superb image clarity and outstanding textural reproduction.
Fast continuous shooting
Shoot at up to 11fps ith minimal display lag, and 8fps with live view, in bursts of up to 1164 shots in JPEG (Standard) at one time. With your settings clearly previewed in the electronic viewfinder, and the virtually real-time display, it will elevate your action shooting to a whole new level.
Reliable and persistent AF
Densely distributed focus points cover around 84% of the image area, and the Fast Hybrid AF system combines the best of phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF to achieve a world-leading 0.02-sec. acquisition speed. When subjects are in motion, AF points densely positioned around the subject are activated for accurate tracking.
Silent continuous shooting
When the situation calls for absolute quiet, silent shooting with no shutter noise is possible at up to 8fps, even in AF-C mode. Used with Real-time Eye AF or with Real-time Tracking it dramatically expands your range of shooting options.
Real-time Eye AF for human
Even when your portrait subject is on the move, Real-time Eye AF provides continuous, stable eye detection and tracking to keep your scene in focus. It also works when the subject's face is partially hidden, backlit, or facing downwards.
Real-time Eye AF for animal
The same eye-detection algorithms that make great portraits of people have been adapted to animals as well, to help you get beautiful pet portraits and wildlife shots.
Low-noise performance for high ISO sensitivity
Across a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-32000 (expanded to ISO 50-102400), the α6600 delivers excellent low-noise performance for high-quality images even in dimly lit settings.
Versatile movie-making capabilities
Full-pixel readout with no pixel binning enables high-resolution 4K movie recording, while a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile supports instant HDR delivery. Sophisticated image stabilisation completes the picture.
