Yesterday saw the announcement of two new Sony a6000 Series mirrorless cameras, the new top of the line Sony a6600 and at the opposite end of the spectrum, the entry level Sony a6100.

With the a6600, you’ll find the same 24MP APS-C sensor, BIONZ X image processor and 425-point hybrid autofocus system as found on the Sony a6400 and just announced a6100.

Other features carried over include, 11fps burst shooting with autofocus and auto exposure, real-time tracking AF and 4K/30p with full-pixel readout and no pixel binning, Super 35mm format video recording.

However, it’s the new features that make the a6600 stand apart from previous models. Those features include, a magnesium-alloy body, 5-axis in-body image stabilization, real-time eye AF during video recording, separate microphone and headphone jacks and a larger grip to accommodate Sony’s newer, longer lasting Z battery.

For the more budget minded, the Sony a6100 is the new entry level option for the a6000 series, but that doesn’t mean that it’s any less appealing.

As it is an entry level camera, there are some differences, mainly with some of the physical features. The EVF for example only boasts 1.44M-dot resolution, down from the 2.36M in both the a6400 & a6600. Also absent is the separate headphone jack (although it keeps the microphone jack). The ISO range is slightly lower as well, maxing out at 51200 instead of 102,400.

Two other features that you won’t find on the a6100 are, the ability to use Eye AF during video recording and the in-body image stabilization that both feature on the a6600.

However, if you can live without those features, the a6100 is a pretty solid, budget friendly option for those new to photography and/or vloggers looking for a slightly less expensive way to capture high-quality video and stills.
