Sony Finally has a New Flagship APS-C Camera with the A6700

Four years felt like an eternity: Sony finally has a new flagship APS-C camera to succeed 2019’s A6600 with the A6700. Differentiating itself from the vlogging-focused ZV-E10, the A6700 is more of a hybrid camera that follows the familiar form factor of any A6000 series camera.

Inside the A6700 is a new 26-megapixel Exmor R sensor that is backside illuminated, along with a Bionz XR image processor that has a dedicated AI processing unit that was first seen on the A7R V. Having a dedicated AI processor should improve the A6700’s image processing and autofocus performance significantly.

Retaining the same design of the A6000 series, the A6700 has a larger grip for better handling, along with a mappable front dial, a vari-angle touchscreen LCD, and an EVF that has a 120hz refresh rate. The A6700 also supports USB-PD via its USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 port, along with a UHS-II SD card slot that’s now on the side instead of on the bottom together with the battery.

With those upgrades, the A6700 can shoot 4K video at 120FPS (30FPS when using it as a webcam) and gets features like AI auto framing, active mode stabilization, and a larger buffer–up to 59 compressed RAW images and over 1000 JPEGs when used in burst mode.

In the US, the Sony A6700 starts at $1399(~Php 77k) for the body only, $1499(~Php 82k) with the 16-50mm kit lens, and $1699(~Php 93k) with the 18-135mm kit lens. Shipping will start in August.
