Physically speaking, it is basically the same camera but with a few changes.
Sony A6600 has a solid magnesium body. We will talk about some special designs for this new camera.
The bigger grip is a great bonus for this camera. Since sony has changed the battery, you get a deep and comfortable grip to hold.
It comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack that Sony D6400 is lacked.
it will be the first in the line of micro single cameras to incorporate this interface.
Tilting Screen:selfie screen tilting screen for vloggers
The A6600 comes with a 3-inch LCD touchscreen. It can tilt up to 180 degrees to face forward.
It's a great update for vloggers who need to take some selfies and film themselves.
But the problem is you are unable to use the tilting screen if you mount a mic on it. To solve that, you can buy accessories.
Sony A6400m Image quality:
ISO:Iso range has been increased slightly to 32000, and expendable to 102100. The A6600 performs extremely well in low light.
Noise is well managed up to around ISO 6400, when it starts to become evident even at relatively small sizes, such as A4; However, if you're sharing images online via social media, even images shot at ISOs as high as 25600 can be usable; we'd suggest avoiding ISO 51200 and higher unless you're absolutely desperate, though.
Autofocus:Real time autofocusing system
It works almost perfectly. This technology enables the camera to track the moving subject flawlessly even in a complex situation. Speedy and impressive, it can accurately pick up the eyes and lock focus on them even they are moving around.
