  • Amazing mirrorless Camera
    Reviewed by cjmphotography88 - July 14, 2021

    Waited a while to get this camera for price wise, was surprised when the box turned up with how small it was and once out of the box how small the camera is in the hands. Holding it tho is really nice, fits in my hands perfectly and having the larger battery it lasts a long time shooting too. the image quality out of this camera is brilliant and the auto focus is so fast and eye AF is amazing on people and animals. Really well made, the menu system is a little confusing to someone who doesn't know anything about photography coming to this camera for a starter camera but once you get using it, you pick it up pretty quick.

  • Amazing what can I say
    Verified BuyerReviewed by John - September 23, 2020

    Still learning how to make the most out of all it has to offer every day. Quality is amazing. Personally it is a perfect size and feels great with the grip. The larger battery I believe cause it to be a bit bigger than the 6400. Larger battery is an obvious plus. The 5-axis stabilization sensor you get in the 6600 does make a difference for sure. Eye AF for video on the 6600 is very cool even though the 6400 has the face detection. Like the upgraded technology. The headphone output is super nice, Have to love it. Overall it was a no brainer for me to go with this 6600. I am very happy with this and highly recommend

  • Almost Perfect - Rolling shutter is awful.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by dills84 - March 6, 2020

    I mainly shoot video and previously owned the A7III. I had issues with the A7III's recording limit of 30 minutes, and constant over heating. The a6600 fixes both of these issues and will basically film forever if you have enough battery power and storage. I also love the flippy screen and with a cheapo mic-relocator it's essentially the perfect form factor. The Z-battery lasts a really long time in this camera, welcome addition! HOWEVER! The rolling shutter on this camera is horrendous. You simply cannot hand hold a shot without it being jarring and nauseating to watch. Even Gimbal shots can be weird and jello like. Basically, if you're locked off on a tripod most of the time this is a great camera.
