Sony a7C vs Sony a6600 Comparison

In this article, we will be comparing the Sony A7c with the Sony A6600, both of which are Advanced Mirrorless cameras. The Sony A7c was presented on the market in September 2020, while the Sony A6600 was announced in August of the same year. Because there is a 13-month time gap between the a7C and the a6600, we do not anticipate seeing a significant technical difference between the two cameras; nonetheless, the younger A7c would still have an edge, particularly in sensor technology.

If you’re hesitating between these two cameras, the difference in sensor size and pricing are the two most important considerations to bear in mind.

The A7C, with its full-frame sensor, is enticing, but the A6600’s cheap price allows you to purchase a second lens for less money. It’s also worth noting that I like the additional buttons on the APS-C camera, but some of you may prefer the multi-angle screen on the C model.

I’m also looking forward to seeing what the E-mount APS-C range has in store for the foreseeable future. Depending on how well the A7C does, and whether or not Sony decides to introduce further products in the same form factor, the A7C might gradually replace mid-and high-end A6XXXX cameras. Only time will tell if this is true!
