In my case it doesn’t really apply, not worried or interested in IBIS or OSS lenses. I turn the IBIS off on my a57 anyway. Im smooth with video and use tripods. Plus I just cant afford $500 more before xmas lol.

But the 6400 battery is at least 20% better than the original 6000/6300 battery. Im sure the 6600 is even better.

? as far as I know, all the a6XXX models (with the exception of the a6600) use the same NP-FW50 as the a7, a7II, a7r, a7s.

You are right, batteries had the same capacity but the cameras themselves were updated internally to be more efficient. So if you set a 6300 to record HD video it will be dead 10-15 minutes sooner than a 6400 and 6500. Id bet the 6600 has the same improvements on the boards as the 6400 but a bigger mAh battery.

Also obviously a fresh battery that comes with a new camera holds the charge better than one that has been used for a while.

Although I have no real experience with α6600 (apart from quickly handling at a shop), at least with α7R III the beefier NP-FZ100 is vastly better than NP-FW50 and somehow I feel it is even better than the old NP-FM500H used in most Sony A mount cameras. Of course, it may not be totally fair to compare different battery types and different cameras, especially when some are clearly older technology.

The problem with batteries is that you do not use them in the same camera. How much of the improvement you notice with the A7r3 compared to the A7r2 (?) is due to the battery and how much due to more efficient electronics? I guess the A6600 compared to the A6400 is a great measurement as these cameras are largely similar.

Having said this, you can use a powerbank to power the A6400 - the smaller battery therefore is not that important if you use a tripod.
