Sony a6700 Will Have Almost the Same Body as the a7C

It seems that the upcoming Sony a6700 high end APS-C format mirrorless camera will have almost the same body as the a7C, and it will be basically a Sony a7C with an APS-C sensor. The official announcement will come in late May 2021, and it will replace the Sony a6600.

  • same EVF, LCD resolution

Sony’s new high-end APS-C camera is likely to be a high-performance camera that uses the new APS-C sensor in the same body as the a7C. The details of the sensor are unknown, but I would like to expect APS-C to adopt backside illumination.

In addition, IBIS (camera shake correction) is said to be disadvantageous in terms of correction effect for small diameter mounts, but APS-C has no restrictions on mount diameter, so it seems that a big improvement can be expected. Since the price is close to a7C, it seems to be the most expensive model in Sony’s APS-C.
