Sony’s Flagship APS-C
Sony describes the a6600 as its flagship APS-C model. It has a fittingly high-quality build, packing internals in a magnesium alloy body with seals to protect from dust and splashes. The form factor hasn’t changed much versus the earlier a6500, though the new model enjoys a better, deeper handgrip.
The a6600 measures 2.6 by 4.7 by 2.7 inches (HWD) and weighs 17.7 ounces without a lens attached. It’s sold only in black. The body has a built-in EVF and a hot shoe, but drops the in-camera flash found in the a6500 and lesser-priced models in the series. Will you miss it? I’ve found it useful in other models, especially to tilt back for a bit of indirect light, but I’ve talked to other photographers who find it completely unnecessary.
