SAN DIEGO, CA — Sony Electronics just released the a6700, its newest APS-C mirrorless camera. Priced at $1399.99 (camera body only), the new offering combines the video and still image capabilities found in the latest full-frame Alpha and Cinema Line series with the compact and lightweight design of the a6000 series.
The a6700 combines an APS-C back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor, boasting 26 effective megapixels, with the speed and power of Sony’s advanced BIONZ XR processing engine. The camera supports high-resolution 4K video recording at up to 120fpsi, a wide latitude of 14-plus stops, and features the S-Cinetone picture profile found in Sony’s professional Cinema Line for refined movie imagery that doesn’t require color grading.
The AI processing unit is inherited from the a7R V, enabling high accuracy “Real-Time Recognition AF (autofocus)." Beyond the a6000 series' human and animal recognition, it now accurately identifies various subjects, such as human, animal, bird, insect, car/train and airplane. The camera is compatible with a broad array of E-mount lenses, and Sony’s E-mount lenses covering full-frame and Cinema Line cameras with a single mount.
