Sony A6600 Photos

I bought the Sony A6600 in December 2019 to take travelling. It is much smaller than the Sony full frame cameras and the lenses are also smaller which makes it perfect for carrying on airplanes and toting around day after day touring. We had a trip to the Alps on the books and I wanted a setup that would be easy to carry around all day.

It’s funny to write that in November 2020. Due to COVID-19 our trip was cancelled (and our replacement trip to Normandy was cancelled a few months after that). As a result, I only used the camera for two trips: to Arizona in January when we attended my uncle Jake’s memorial service in early January, and late February early March when we visited some people at Hood Canal, Washington. The bookend flower pictures are from my neighborhood walks. I got some nice pictures on that trip; and got some more through the spring, summer, and fall on my extended walks.

Here are my 10 favorites listed in the order they were taken. All were taken with an E 18-135mm F3.5-5.66 OSS Lens. You can click on the photos to get larger versions.
