Sony A6700 – Our Expectation

As we know the predecessors of the upcoming Sony A6700 namely Sony A6300 announced in February, 2016 and after that Sony A6500 was announced after six months in October, 2016. We also recall how Sony A6300 faced the overheating issues just over 4K recording and after that Sony A6500 comes with clean chit when it was tested the overheating issues comparative to Sony A6300.

So the one thing is clear that Sony will definitely take care to keep away the heating issue related to the upcoming camera Sony A6700.

24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor

The predecessor Sony A6500 comes with 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, so we expect that Sony A6700 will include improved 24MP DRAM sensor, which will improve significantly increase data readout speeds, allowing users to capture still images of fast-moving objects with minimal distortion. It will also make the camera capable to record 4K movies at 60 frame per second. Hence after that it will become the strong rival of existing Panasonic GH5.

BIONZ X II image processor

Sony A6700 will come with improved BIONZ X II image processor with new algorithms resulting superior image and video quality with low noise even when using higher ISO settings. Adding to new image processor is going to improve the overall operating speed of the camera. A new image processor will bring new image de-coding algorithm and hence it will extract maximum details in a better way compare to its predecessor.

5-Axis II image stabilization

We expect Sony A6700 will come with upgraded 5-Axis II image stabilization, enhances the users to shoot steadier, crisp and blur-free still images and movies. It also makes the camera to capture images with minimal blur whether the users shot at night, Zoom in on subjects staying away from it. 5-Axis image stabilization of 1st generation is limited to 5.5 stop, we do expect the next generation of 5-axis image stabilization will gives 6 stop of image stabilization and better synchronize with OSS lenses.

Extended ISO 204800

We expect it should come with the improved extended ISO 204800 compare to its predecessor Sony A6500, which has extended ISO 51200. The higher ISO number increases the sensitivity of the camera to the light, so that the users can capture the images without any problem.

24MP images @ 12fps

For your information, the increased buffer of Sony A6500 allows it to capture 24MP images @11fps for around 300 JPEGs or 100 Raw+JPEG frames, while we expect Sony A 6700 will capture 24MP images @ 12fps, which will make it to shoot more than 300 JPEGs and also it helps it to offer a faster image review on shooting large bursts.

2nd Gen 4D Focus

Sony A6500 features 4D FOCUS™ system; while we expect that the upcoming Sony A6700 will come with 2nd Gen 4D Focus which can lock focus on a subject in lesser than 0.05 seconds, to become the world’s fastest AF acquisition time. We expect that the 2nd Gen 4D Focus system will come with a variety of focusing functions including accuracy, Lock-on AF, which maintains focus on moving subjects throughout the use of a configurable frame that is set over the desired moving subject even if the originally selected point loses focus. Such technology will track moving subjects in a variety of lighting conditions to make the better experience in photography.

4K 60fps

As its predecessor Sony A6500 captures UHD 4K movies is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps also supports Full HD 1080p recording in frame rates up to 120 fps, while we have expectation that Sony A6700 will have the ability to record 4K video at up to 60 fps and Full HD video at up to 180 fps and will be the strong rival of existing Panasonic GH5, which comes with similar feature.

Hence, these are our expectation from the upcoming Sony A6700 and expect it will come with almost similar features.
