Hey everybody, it’s Jay P. here. I’m down in Pasadena. We’re doing a little walkabout with the new Sony a6700 (buy here). A lot of great features with this camera. Let’s explore them. Let’s see how it works. Let’s see some images. And let’s just see exactly what’s new on the new Sony a6700.
You might think that for anybody looking at potentially purchasing these two cameras, the answer would be simple. If you want shoot stills, get the Sony A6700 (buy here). If you want to shoot video, get the Sony FX30 (buy here). But is that really all it boils down to?
In this video, photographer Mark Bennett takes a look at both cameras. He discusses the features of both cameras and where their strengths lie. You probably won’t be surprised by the result, though.
Sony has announced the hotly anticipated Sony A6700 (buy here) APS-C mirrorless camera. Sony’s hailing it as their highest performing APS-C mirrorless camera to date. It features a 27-megapixel (26 usable) BSI sensor, 11fps continuous stills shooting and 4K video at up to 120fps.
In many ways, it’s a photo-centric version of the Sony FX30 (buy here), but with a more advanced autofocus system, faster shutter speeds and an electronic viewfinder.
It appears that Sony has now officially discontinued the Sony A6300 and A6500 APS-C mirrorless cameras. Both bodies have disappeared from Sony’s list of interchangeable lens APS-C E mount cameras, and both bodies are also being listed as discontinued on the B&H website.
According to a new rumour, it appears that Sony is preparing to launch a new APS-C camera, though, that looks like it might replace both of the discontinued cameras along with the A6600, offering a similar form factor but with “vlogger” features from the Sony ZV-1 and Sony A7c.
