Sony A6400 Firmware Update and Help Guide
Since the time I had this camera for review, a new Firmware Update has come out for the Sony A6400 mirrorless camera that supports Animal Eye Autofocus!! The new firmware v2.0 can be downloaded over at Sony’s website for both Windows and MacOS operating systems.
If you are looking to really get the most out of your Sony A6400, then you must consider some addition optics for your tool chest. All the E-Mount Lenses available will work, but the APS-C Crop factor style lenses are a bit smaller and lighter when compared to the full frame E-mount lenses. You can also use lens adapters and utilize almost any lens on the Sony A6400 which is both remarkable and extremely versatile.
The Sony A6400 has pretty poor battery life overall, so I recommend getting at least 2 extra NP-FW50 batteries for those long days of shooting or recording video. You can also opt for a aftermarket Vello BG-S5 battery grip which holds two batteries and also helps with the ergonomics when using larger heavy lenses.
