Sony Alpha a6600 Mirrorless Camera with 18-135mm Lens
A full-fledged toolkit for your imagination
The α6600 packs in the features, to deliver what you need for just about any situation you encounter – fast AF, steady image stabilisation and stunning image quality, a high-capacity battery and serious 4K HDR (HLG)1 movie shooting.
Fast continuous shooting with AF/AE at up to 11fps
Shoot at up to 11fps3 with minimal display lag, and 8fps3 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.
Silent continuous shooting won't disturb the peace
When the situation calls for absolute quiet, silent shooting with no shutter noise is possible at up to 8fps5, 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 tracking in an instant
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.
AI-based subject tracking
The camera's tracking systems rely on unique AI-based subject recognition algorithms6. These process spatial information consisting of colour, pattern (brightness), and distance (depth) data, as well as tracking the subject's eye and face, all in real time at high speeds.

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 well7, to help you get beautiful pet portraits and wildlife shots.
Smooth focus transition
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.
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.
How optical image stabilisation works
The 5-axis in-body optical image stabilisation mechanism used on our acclaimed full-frame cameras has been adapted as the stabilisation 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 stabilisation equivalent to a 5-step9 faster shutter setting.
High image quality by design
Exmor™ APS-C CMOS sensor and latest-generation BIONZ X™ image processor
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.
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 stabilisation completes the picture.
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.
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-production13
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.
