Sony Reveals a6700, “Most Advanced Aps-C Camera Ever”

The Sony a6700 is the first APS-C camera with AI subject recognition and the best still picture and video performance packed into a small body.

Sony thinks that its new 6700 APS-C mirrorless camera, which costs £1450 (approx. ₱103,000), combines the cutting-edge still image and video powers of the latest full-frame Alpha and Cinema Line cameras with the compact and lightweight design of the 6000 series. This is an interesting idea!

The camera has an APS-C back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS picture sensor with 26.0 effective megapixels and Sony’s high-tech BIONZ XR processing engine, which makes it fast and powerful. The result is a unit that can record high-resolution 4K video at up to 120fps and has a wide latitude of 14+ stops for capturing details in harsh or low-light conditions. It also has the S-Cinetone picture profile found in Sony’s professional Cinema Line models for refined movie imagery that doesn’t need color grading, as well as great skin tones.

Standard ISO sensitivity ranges from 100 to 32000, which lets you take high-sensitivity, low-noise photos and movies. The AI processing unit was taken from the 7R V. This makes Real-Time Recognition AF (autofocus) very accurate. In addition to being able to recognize humans and animals, the 6000 series can now correctly identify many other things, such as birds, insects, cars, trains, and planes, which is very useful.

When used with the also-new FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS II, it gives you 35mm full-frame equivalent focal lengths of 105mm to 300mm, making the most of the power of long zoom for high-quality shots. It can also be used with a wide range of E-mount lenses.

As expected, it is small (approximately 12cm by 7cm by 8cm and about 493g). It has a vari-angle LCD screen that can be controlled by modern touch menu. It also has a front dial that can be changed and a dial for switching between still pictures, movies, and S&Q modes. It has an optical 5-axis image stabilization system built into the body. For stills, this gives it a 5.0-stop edge in shutter speed, and the Active Mode keeps video steady.

In terms of connectivity, the camera now works with the Creators’ App, which should make it easy to share videos and photos to the cloud. Sony also plans to release a new version of the “Camera Remote SDK” in July 2023. This will make it possible to control and change the settings of a camera from a distance.

At the end of July 2023, the new Sony 6700 will be sold for about £1450 (approx. ₱103,000) for its body only.
