Sony A7C vs A6600: both have 24MP sensors and shoot 4K video – so which is best?

Until recently, if you wanted a compact interchangeable lens camera from Sony, the A6xxx-series was the logical place to look, with the Sony A6600 being the most advanced example. However, in September 2020, Sony announced the A7C, a full-frame mirrorless camera that’s more compact than the other cameras in its full-frame line-up. That’s impressive, as the other A7-series cameras aren’t exactly huge!

It’s great to have a choice, but how do you decide between the A7C and the A6600? Both cameras have 24MP sensors, albeit different sensor sizes, and they even cost about the same. In this post we take a look at the key differences between these two Sony cameras to help you make the right choice for your photography.
