True-to-life 4K HDR (HLG) movie recording
Versatile movie-making capabilities
Full-pixel readout with no pixel binning enables high-resolution 4K movie recording1, while a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile supports instant HDR delivery. Sophisticated image stabilization completes the picture.
Keep the focus on your subject
Working together, the camera's Fast Hybrid AF system, Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF maintain steady and dependable focus on your subject, so you can enjoy the more creative aspects of movie-making.
Interval Shooting to create time-lapse movies
The camera's capabilities include built-in Interval Shooting11, for time-lapse videos with a selectable shot interval of 1–60 seconds. Resulting images can be combined in high resolution on a PC, and viewed with a simple variable-speed preview function on the camera.
S-Log shooting support
The S-Log3 and S-Log2 Gamma curves feature wide dynamic range (up to 1,300% of Rec. 709) to minimize whiteout and blackout and allow a wider scope for color grading in post-production12.
The 5-axis in-body optical image stabilization mechanism used on our acclaimed full-frame cameras has been adapted as the stabilization unit for the APS-C sensor on the α6600. Relying on a highly accurate gyro sensor, it detects and compensates for camera shake along five different axes, including angular (pitch and yaw), horizontal, vertical and rotational, for stabilization equivalent to a 5-step9 faster shutter setting.
Pitch and yaw control
Compensate for angular shake, also known as pitch and yaw shake, especially evident when shooting at longer focal lengths.
Horizontal and vertical axes
Compensate for camera shake in the horizontal and vertical directions, most apparent at high magnifications such as macro shooting.
Compensate for roll, or rotational shake, most obvious in hand-held, long-duration movie shooting.
Slow & Quick Motion recording
You can record movies in slow motion (up to 5x) and quick motion (up to 60x) directly in the camera, or use 120fps Full HD video to create high-quality slow-motion footage in post-production1.
Extend your reach with external touch operations
Convenient touch operations such as Touch Focus and Touch Tracking, that are available on the α6600's monitor14, can still be accessed even when external monitors are connected to the camera.
Tell your stories in your own way
The α6600 is designed for powerful film-making, so pros and enthusiasts alike can share their stories with the world. The 180°-tiltable display makes self-framing easy for vlogging or challenging shooting angles. Professional audio is also covered with an external mic jack and headphone jack for monitoring. And the improved grip ensures rock-solid, comfortable shooting for hours at a time.
High-capacity Z battery supports long-duration shooting
To support longer shooting sessions, the α6600 comes equipped with the same high-capacity battery introduced with many of our full-frame cameras15, while maintaining the camera's slim form.
Dust- and moisture-resistant magnesium-alloy body
The camera is resistant to dust and moisture16, with a top cover, front cover, internal frame, and rear cover constructed from a lightweight but sturdy magnesium alloy.
The camera's 11 buttons can each be assigned to one of 91 different functions, and functions can also be assigned to the control dial and wheel. My Menu lets you register 30 different menu items.
Imaging Edge™ Remote, Viewer, and Edit
Elevate your photography with Imaging Edge desktop applications. Use "Remote" to control and monitor shooting live on your PC screen; "Viewer" to quickly preview, rate, and select photos from large image libraries; and "Edit" to develop RAW data into high-quality photos for delivery. Get the best from Sony RAW files, and manage your productions more efficiently.
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-s2 acquisition speed. When subjects are in motion, AF points densely positioned around the subject are activated for accurate tracking.
Shoot at up to 11 fps3 with minimal display lag, and 8 fps3 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.
When the situation calls for absolute quiet, silent shooting with no shutter noise is possible at up to 8 fps5, even in AF-C mode. Used with Real-time Eye AF or with Real-time Tracking it dramatically expands your range of shooting options.
Initiate Real-time Tracking by half-pressing the shutter, or simply select the subject by touch, to start tracking. You can also assign "Tracking On" to a custom key, and press it to start tracking. The camera's tracking systems rely on unique AI-based subject recognition algorithms6. These process spatial information consisting of color, pattern (brightness), and distance (depth) data, as well as tracking the subject's eye and face, all in real time at high speeds. 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 downward.
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.
Not only can you prioritize the subject's left or right eye in settings, you can even do it with a simple touch to the camera's monitor screen. Depending on the condition of the subject you're tracking, the focus area will automatically and seamlessly switch between the subject's face and eyes.
With the Touch Tracking function you can simply touch the monitor to initiate Real-time Tracking for either stills or movies.
