Expanded Sony a6600 Body Key Features:
Extremely fast autofocus
The Sony A6600 is able to achieve autofocus speeds of 0.02 seconds, which is incredibly fast! These speeds are achievable thanks to the densely grouped focus points that cover about 84% of the entire frame. Not only this, the Fast Hybrid Autofocus system uses advanced phase-detection and contrast-detection autofocus to allow for fast and accurate autofocus tracking.
Real-time Tracking and Eye Autofocus
Sony has incorporated their intelligent subject tracking algorithms to provide an impressively accurate real-time tracking to this camera body. The real-time eye autofocus will detect eyes at a moment's notice and continuous track. Depending on the conditions that you find yourself in whilst shooting, you'll see the focus area can automatically switch between your subject's eyes and face. Equally, you can take full control and opt for a left or right eye tracking that will even work in unique conditions, for example, where a subject is partially covered or if the subject backlit by a bright light source. There is also a real-time autofocus for animals that will help you capture beautiful images of your pets or wildlife.

Invaluable 5-axis image stabilisation
The very same system that is used on Sony's full frame counterparts has been implemented in the Sony A6600. The five axis stabilisation that caters for pitch, yaw, horizontal, vertical and rotational movements is invaluable for both videos and stills. It works using Sony's impressively accurate gyroscope system and will help you capture the best images and video that you possibly can.
Using the 24.2 Megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor and the BIONZ XTM image processing power enables you to create stunningly high-quality images with amazing clarity and detail. A notable mention is the skin tone feature that has been taken from Sony's full frame cameras that combined with the processing power in this body allows you to recreate lifelike skin tones in your images.
4K HDR Video Recording
Let's get down to the fine details. This camera is capable of capturing some seriously stunning footage. It can shoot 4K HDR video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning which allows for oversampling to about 2.4x of the capture information that is needed for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). A Hybrid Log-Gamma capability makes for easy and immediate viewing without extra processing HDR images. Combining this with the real-time autofocus tracking and eye autofocus features means that you can accurately and reliably tracking your subjects without fear of dropping focus, whilst you deliberate on your next creative decision.
Versatile and robust
Fitted with a high-resolution, 180° tilting rear touchscreen, you'll be hard-pressed to find a situation where you cannot get the shot that you are looking for. The screen will tilt upwards 180° and 74° downwards, meaning that you can easily get those high up shots as well as the lower ones too, not to mention to selfie and vlogging options. The actual body has been made out of a lightweight dust and moisture resistant magnesium alloy meaning it is incredibly portable and versatile to the user.
