Not many of us can do much in 0.02 seconds but that’s all it takes for Sony’s new Alpha 6600 (from £1450) to get a lock on your subject of choice. With 425 auto-focus detection points covering approximately 84% of the image area, 5-axis in-body image stabilisation, and real-time tracking of eyes (both human and animal), the mirrorless, APS-C snapper significantly reduces your chances of getting a blurry pic. Inside is a 24.2MP CMOS sensor and Sony’s latest BIONZ X image processor, while a 180-degree tiltable LCD touchscreen is great for framing the 4K HDR video it can shoot. There’s also a cheaper Alpha 6100 (from £830) and both will be available to buy in October.
