In this quick article and video, I will go over the Sony A6400 Mirrorless Camera key features and share some of quality reviews out there so far. The A6400 is the latest aps-c crop factor mirrorless camera from Sony, and it offers a more affordable price point when compared the A6500.
The Sony A6400 does not have the built in sensor stabilization that the Sony A6500 has, but it’s only $900 US vs $1100 US, and does offer some great options like the 180 degree flip touchscreen for example, which make it an excellent choice for selfie style photos and video. It also has the latest AF tracking technology which appears to be next level and beyond awesome.
The A6400 is the replacement to the A6300 at then end of the day, since Sony has now discontinued that camera. I reviewed the Sony A6300 over here if you want to check it out. The older but still awesome bang for the buck Sony A6000 is still available and is currently going for $550 US at the time of this article, and My Sony A6000 Review is Here >>
Moving on to the Sony A6400 key features:
24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS Sensor
BIONZ X Image Processor
NO IBIS (Sensor Stabilization)
NO Headphone Jack
Real-Time Eye AF & Real-Time
XGA Tru-Finder 2.36m-Dot OLED EVF
3.0″ 921.6k-Dot 180° Tilting Touchscreen
Internal UHD 4K Video, S-Log3, and HLG
S&Q Motion in Full HD from 1-120 fps
Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC
425 Phase- & Contrast-Detect AF Points
Up to 11 fps Shooting and ISO 102,400
Weight = 14.22 oz / 403 g(with battery and memory card)
So as you can see the Sony A6400 is a really good option for those in the market looking for excellent auto focus abilities, excellent video quality, and the selfie screen option. The lack of IBIS does suck for some situations, no question, but the cost savings and 180 degree flip touchscreen does make up for it in my opinion. Ofcourse Sony will most certainly trickle out a A6700 or something that has all of theses goodies built into the camera, but it will cost a premium of $1200+ for sure if not more. It all depends on camera body upgrades, specifically if the battery changes to the new FZ100 series or not. If that happens, the camera body will grow in size a bit, and the cost will probably be more in the $1400 price range I’m thinking based on the current market competition, and what the full frame sony mirrorless cameras are already offering.
My Sony A6400 Review: I will be getting the Sony A6400 for review very soon, so please let me know what lenses and/ or accessories you would like me to test with it. I was planning on getting the E 16-50mm kit lens, the E 18-135mm kit lens, and the killer FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM Lens for some action photography testing. We shall see if that all pans out, but as of now that is my plan.
Thanks again for checking in and please have a great day, Jay
