Complete your Sony A6700 camera kit with these accessories
Whether you have your eye on the Sony A6700 or already own it, one thing is certain: this beautiful APS-C system camera offers a lot of possibilities. To complete your camera kit, there are some additional accessories that should not be missed, such as a sturdy camera strap, extra battery and memory card. With these accessories, you'll be ready to hit the road with your Sony A6700.
Carrying the Sony A6700 with the Peak Design Slide camera strap
In fact, no camera kit is complete without a Peak Design camera strap. These straps are genius because you can attach and detach them very easily to your camera with Anchor Links. It's also no coincidence that you see Peak Design's Anchor Links everywhere.
Peak Design Slide - Carrying Sony A6700 comfortably with a camera strap
Peak Design's Slide camera strap is so good you simply can't ignore it, and many photographers have not failed to notice this practical accessory. It is everything other professional camera belts are not: beautiful, low-profile, adjustable, quick to attach and customisable to your gear. The Slide camera strap comes in four different colours: black, grey, blue and green.
With the unique Anchor Link system, the camera strap attaches to your Sony A6700 with lightning speed. The double connection points are solid and more secure than with the standard camera strap supplied with the camera. Photographers working with a tripod will benefit extra from this handy camera strap. This is because you can easily and quickly detach the strap and put your camera on the tripod without the strap.
ProCube2 battery charger and batteries for the Sony A6700
If you're on the road and your battery starts to run low, it's handy to know that you can charge your batteries with the Hähnel ProCube2, even when you're in the car. The Sony A6700 comes with an NP-FZ100 battery as standard, but it's always wise to have an extra battery on hand. This extra battery can make a world of difference, especially when using the Sony A6700 as a hybrid camera. When shooting videos, the battery will drain faster than when shooting.
Hähnel HL-XZ100 battery
You can go for an original Sony battery, but there are plenty of equivalent alternatives available. Take for instance the reliable HL-XZ100 battery from the Hähnel brand. You can also get this battery in an inexpensive double pack with the Hähnel Twin Pack HL-XZ100 Sony-type. After all, of batteries you'd rather have one too many than too few.
Hähnel ProCube2 for Sony
The ProCube2 for Sony has been on the market for a bit longer, but it remains a top accessory. Besides being a multifunctional battery charger, it also looks nice. The ProCube2 for Sony comes with three different battery trays that you can interchange with each other. So, in addition to Sony NP-FZ100 batteries, you can also charge NP-BX1 or NP-FW50 batteries. The ProCube2 also has a separate tray for charging AA batteries. This is the black part that you place on top of the charger by means of magnets. So you don't need to swap this tray with, for example, the NP-FZ100 tray.
"The ProCube2 for Sony quickly charges two NP-FZ100 batteries simultaneously."
The ProCube2 automatically adjusts the charging speed and capacity based on the batteries you put in. On the display, you can follow the progress per battery, expressed as a percentage and in the number of mAh. The ProCube2 for Sony quickly charges two NP-FZ100 batteries at the same time.
You also get a 12V car charger with ProCube2, allowing you to charge the batteries on the road while driving to the next location. In addition, the ProCube2 has a 2.4A USB port for charging other camera accessories or your smartphone.
