When it comes to flagship APS-C cameras, you’re spoiled for choice, and Sony and Fujifilm both have incredibly solid offerings packed full of features at very attractive prices. How do you choose between Sony’s a6600 and Fuji’s X-T3?
Tony Northrup runs you through the specs for each camera, giving you an overview as to how the cameras fit into each manufacturer’s lineup. As he mentions, in many ways, these are two very similar cameras and yet are also incredibly different, particularly in usability. As a Sony user, Fuji’s button and dial layout seem far more intuitive and satisfying to use, and Sony’s menu system is legendary for being a labyrinth of random capitalizations and unnecessary abbreviations.
For those leaning towards the a6600 when they start shipping at the end of the month, there is another factor to consider: the Sony a7 III just dropped in price by $200 (among a plethora of other great deals), and at $1,798, it’s currently only $400 more expensive than the APS-C a6600. As a premium for that larger, full-frame sensor, $400 does not seem like a lot of money.
