Sony has just announced two new mirrorless cameras. The company released A6600 and A6100 with APS-C mirrorless cameras. The new A6500 and A6600 feature 5-axis in-body image stabilisation. This is along with a 24.2-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS image sensor. They also have superfast autofocus that can find an object in 0.02 seconds. That’s pretty impressive.
The cameras also have Real-Time Auto-Focus tracking and the new Real-Time Eye Auto-Focus tracking. Sony has added a new 3.5mm headphone jack for the first time in its series of cameras. Reportedly, the A6600 has the longest battery life of any APS-C mirrorless camera. This is because the camera has a Z battery pack.

The BIONZ X gives 1.8x gain in data processing speeds over the A6500. The Sony A6100 model relies on in-lens stabilisation. However, it does not have the BIONZ X image processing. Although, it has the same fast and Real-Time Eye Auto-Focus tracking technology the A6600 offers.
These two mirrorless cameras are supposed to be released later in 2019 by Sony. The A6100 will be released in October 2019 at $750 only. Sony is also releasing a bundle for the cameras that include the 16-50mm E-mount lens for $1,100. Meanwhile, A6600 will be released in November at the price tag of $1,400 in America. A bundle is also released for this model with 18-135mm E-mount lens for $1,800.
Sony also revealed that it will release two lightweight E-mount lenses later in the year. The lenses will be compatible with the A6600 and A6100 cameras. The other APS-C cameras, E 16-55mm will cost $1,400 and the E 70-355mm at $1,000. They will launch in October and November respectively.
