Sony a6400 Camera

Sony is no stranger to the digital space, and with an ever-growing lineup of some of the best cameras in the photo and video industry, it was a no brainer for them to create a successor geared toward the revitalization of one of their most popular offerings, the a6300. The Japanese electronics giant has once again stolen the spotlight with the unveiling of their most recent mid-range camera, the tiny but powerful a6400.

While the a6300 was a force to be reckoned with when it came to crop-sensor cameras, the a6400 was built to target and expand on the few shortcomings of the original iteration. While the newest offering will retain the a6300’s 24.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor, Sony has decided to focus on the introduction of a better autofocus system, a common request that consumers have been pining for since the introduction of the original camera. To expand on this, the camera will feature 425 phase- and contrast-detect autofocus points, creating the fastest autofocus system in the world — taking full advantage of the camera’s 84% image coverage area to lock onto subjects in as little as 0.02 seconds. The introduction of Sony’s new “Real-time Eye AF” and “Real-time Tracking” features help to further the company’s foray into AI-based object recognition, allowing users to track subjects while in AF-C or AF-A modes, while a 3-inch, 921.6K-dot 180-degree tilting touchscreen LCD on the rear of the camera provides a variety of technical live-view applications. A 2.36-million-dot XGA Tru-Finder OLED electronic viewfinder, UHD 4K shooting capabilities (without pixel binning), and the company’s traditional S-Log format serve to round out the new camera, providing a mid-range successor that’s worthy of the Sony name.
