Sony A6400 – Gallery, Body, Performance, and More
The Sony A6400 is a mixed bag. It’s fundamentally a rebadged A6300 with the same sensor and the same image quality.
But a new flip-up screen. It’s not using a good vlogging or video camera as we are probably because it lacks in-body stabilization and has a terrible rolling shutter.
However, it’s an excellent camera for photography, thanks to the best following autofocus system on the market, period.
On the entire, it’s a bit disappointing by Sony’s standards, and for the same money, Fujifilm’s new X-T30 looks like a better option.
- The Sony A6400 has a nigh-on identical body to 2016’s A6300. Also, the top, button layout, mount, battery, and everything else are nearly the same as before.
- It has a magnesium body that’s sealed against dust and humidity, as before, but Sony said it has been “mildly upgraded.” The only change I can see, however, is a slightly larger grip.
- I’ve never been a fan of the button layout on Sony’s A6xxx sequence. Somewhat than generous, you have lots of physical controls.
- You get a fair and (awkwardly positioned) adjustment dial on the top and a rear multi-function ovolo roll. Sony services you to use the latter for many locations.
- Similar to ISO and exposure compensation, which pulls your eye from the viewfinder, I much prefer what Fujifilm did with the XT-30.
- Which also has a better-looking, more practical design than the A6400’s square-black-box look.
- Talking of the viewfinder, the EVF is the same mediocre 2.36 million dot / 0.7x intensification OLED model as the one on other cameras in private.
- Fortuitously, the rear display is a significant upgrade compared to the A6400’s predecessors. It’s now touch-enabled, let you tap to focus, track a theme, and shoot.
- Through no joystick, you can also use the screen to alteration the effort opinion with your sense to the EVF, much as you can with Canon’s EOS R and other cameras.
- Inappropriately, you can’t use the touchscreen to navigate the menus or quick settings.
The A6400’s body force is the same old, but the electronics and software are new and much better. It has a similar 24.2-megapixel CMOS device that we adored on the last model.
Nevertheless, it now packs the latest Bionz X mainframe. That boosts the native ISO variety to 100-32,000, elastic to 102,800, for one object.
It also yields spurt rates up to 11 fps with the mechanical shutter and eight fps with the new, entirely silent electronic shutter.
Anything’s more, and you can fire off quite a few shots beforehand. The cushion fills 99 for JPEGs and 46 for RAW records.
Shooting such bursts is useless if the autofocus can’t keep up, but that’s anywhere the A6400 shines. The hybrid AF organization has 425 contrast-detect and 425 phase-detect pixels covering 84 percent of the image area.
It makes improved use of that tech than ever with new software borrowed from its quick-draw cousin, the full-frame A9.
