Sony’s A6600 Gets DSLR-Like Battery Life, In-Body Image Stabilization

There’s also a more affordable A6100 as well

As part of updating its A6xxx line of mirrorless cameras, the A6400 gets two new siblings with the higher-end A6600 and the more affordable A6100.

The A6600 replaces the A6500 and has everything the A6400 has plus 5-axis in-body image stabilization, real-time eye autofocus for video, a headphone jack—a first for the A6xxx series, and a bigger Z-series battery—the same battery used with the A7 and A9 full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Sony claims that the A6600’s bigger battery can last for up to 720 shots (up to 810 if you are not using the EVF), giving it one of the best battery life ever on a mirrorless camera.

Since it is similar to the A6400, you get a 24.2-megapixel sensor that can shoot 3k 40p  HDR videos, 11FPS burst shooting, and a fast 0.2 sec autofocus time.

If you don’t need in-body IS and the headphone jack and don’t mind using the same battery of the A6400, Sony also unveiled the A6100. A successor to the A6000, the A6100 lets you record 4K videos (without options for S-Log, HLG, or HDR) and has the same 24.2-megapixel sensor (with a lower ISO range) and the same autofocus system found on the A6400 and A6600.

In addition to the two new cameras, Sony launched two new E-mount lenses as well: a 16-55mm F2.8 G standard zoom lens and a 70-350mm F4.5-6.3 G OSS super-telephoto zoom lens

The A6600 is priced at $1398(~Php 73.3k) for the body only and $1798(~Php 94.3k) with the 18-135mm kit lens, while the A6100 is priced at $748(~Php 39.3k) for the body only, $848(~Php 44.5k) with the 16-50mm kit lens, and $1098(~Php 57.6k) with the 16-50mm and 55-210mm kit lenses. The 70-350mm F4.5-6.3 G OSS is priced at $1000(~Php 52.5k), while the 16-55mm F2.8 G is priced at $1400(~Php 73.5k).

The A6100 and 16-55mm F2.8 G will be available in October, while the A6600 and 70-350mm F4.5-6.3 G OSS will be available in November.
