Sony likes to keep us busy! First it launched the new A6700 APS-C flagship, and then it announced not one but two new versions of its compact A7C full frame model. This puts buyers in a quandary because, as usual with the Sony line-up, there are lots of choices to be made between cameras that appear to do similar things. This is especially true with the Sony A7C II vs A6700, both of which look like highly effective and portable hybrid cameras.

These two cameras look set to be amongst the best Sony cameras in the line-up and, as is generally the case these days, many of the advances relate to video capture, notably higher frame rates, more advanced compression options and fewer cropping restrictions. The market is changing rapidly, but right now the Sony A7C II and A6700 look to be worth considering amongst the best hybrid cameras right now, if not the best cameras for vlogging.
