Sony A6600 Review

DPreview has completed their review of the Sony APS-C Flagship, the A6600.  They found the Sony flagship camera to be very good, walking away with an 83% rating and a silver medal award.

Pros;

  • Excellent JPEG and Raw image quality
  • Class-leading AF tracking is especially good for photographing people
  • Good video quality
  • Unmatched battery life
  • In-body image stabilization
  • Headphone and mic sockets
  • Good burst shooting speed
  • Comfortable grip
  • Tilting touchscreen flips up 180 degrees, down 90 degrees
  • Extensive customization options
  • NFC makes image transfer simple
  • USB charging is convenient

Cons;

  • Ergonomics lacking - both command dials must be operated with thumb
  • Lengthy menu is difficult to navigate
  • Single UHS-I card slot means buffer takes a long time to clear
  • Cannot switch to video or exit burst mode while buffer is clearing
  • Most buttons and controls are cramped, fiddly, or offer little travel and feedback
  • No in-camera Raw conversion
  • Bluetooth can't be used to speed up Wi-Fi connection for image transfer
  • Significant 'jello' effect in 4K/24p mode or significant crop in 30p mode
  • Touchscreen behavior needs to be switched between stills and video

Conclusions;

The Sony a6600 has an industry-leading autofocus system, is capable of excellent images and video, comes with very useful in-body image stabilization and has the best battery life of any mirrorless camera on the market at this time. However, its sensor is getting a bit long-in-the-tooth, and competitors have caught up or surpassed it regarding video quality and features, resolution and handling. But for family photography and even some sports and action, it's easily worth your consideration.
