Hello all!

I just purchased a new A6600 and really looking forward to using it a lot.

If anyone has any helpful tips, tricks, or suggestions, please let me know!

I am also looking to build out a rig and get accessories to go with the camera for both stills and video. Can you suggest your favorites for me to look into?

Thank you!

I like Dave Busch's Sony a6600 Guide in Kindle format. Small Rig cage for a6600 gives you a nice place to mount a mic and the handle makes for steady videos.

Thank you! Definitely going to get a small rig for it. Any thoughts on what to Mount as far as mics and lights, monitors etc?

Thanks for joining up Matt. Hard to go wrong with the SmallRig gear! I did put together a top 10 accessories guide for the a6600 a while back, could do with an update now though. Other than the cage what type of accessories are you thinking about?
