It might have taken a while, but Sony has finally unveiled the successor to the A6600. To recap, the A6600 was launched way back in 2019, and Sony doesn't usually go this long between updates. This is the A6700, and it is Sony's newest flagship mirrorless APS-C camera. 

At the heart of the A6700 is a new 26-megapixel backside-illuminated APS-C sensor. And although Sony doesn't explicitly say it, it looks to be the same sensor used in Sony's FX30 cinema camera.

Paired with the new sensor is Sony's Bionz XR processor – the same processor used in much pricier cameras like the full-frame flagship A7R V. This means it also gets the same AI-trained autofocusing capabilities as its pricier siblings. 

To help users get the shot they want in all situations, the A6700 features a 5-axis in-body optical image stabilisation system that Sony says can provide up to five stops of stabilisation.

On the video front, the A6700 can capture 4K at up to 60fps using Sony's 6K oversampling technology with full-pixel readout. And it can also shoot in 4K at up to 120fps if you don't mind a significant crop.

The camera itself is compact and features a prominent grip. The viewfinder has a resolution of 2.36M dots, and the rear LCD is three inches large, has a resolution of 1.04M dots, and is also fully articulating.
