Product details

The compact camera with APS-C sensor is not only the one with the fastest autofocus in its class, it also has several functions that make autofocus even better in terms of precision - such as Real Time
Eye AF and Real Time Tracking. To ensure that the photographer never misses a subject despite accurate autofocus, the Alpha 6400 takes up to eleven frames per second with automatic focus tracking if desired. This generation of the BIONZ X processor is responsible for the excellent image quality - in photos as well as 4K videos. The touch screen on the back of the camera can be rotated 180 degrees. All together, this makes the camera an excellent tool for creative people - no matter if professional, ambitious amateur or vlogger.

The Alpha 6400's autofocus takes effect within 0.02 seconds. No wonder, because the camera has some extras that are otherwise only reserved for the full-frame cameras Alpha 9, Alpha 7 III and Alpha 7R III. With 425 phase and contrast autofocus points each, distributed close together over about 84 percent of the sensor surface, the camera covers most of the viewfinder image. Together with the power of the BIONZ X processor, the camera reliably calculates the subject's position in focus and guides the focus point accordingly - no matter how fast the subject is moving.

With the Real Time Eye Autofocus, Sony is specifically developing the familiar eye autofocus further. With the help of artificial intelligence, the Alpha 6400 processes the position information for both eyes and calculates the next position ahead. In all autofocus modes, the camera now automatically detects the subject's eyes and focuses on them as soon as the photographer presses the shutter button halfway. In AF-C and AF-A modes, the photographer can manually choose whether the camera should focus on the left or right eye. This allows the photographer to concentrate exclusively on subject composition. The camera does the rest. From summer 2019, a firmware update will also include an eye autofocus function specifically for animals - perfect for pets and the wild.

Real Time Tracking is another specialty of the Alpha 6400, and thanks to Sony's latest algorithm plus artificial intelligence, the camera can track an object with extreme precision once it comes into focus. Object recognition inrates colors, distance, patterns such as brightness, and spatial information into the motion prediction. As a result, once the subject is in focus, the autofocus never lets go.

With eleven frames per second with automatic focus tracking and mechanical shutter and a maximum of eight frames per second with full focus tracking with electronic shutter in silent mode, the camera is not only fast in terms of autofocus, but also when it comes to continuous shooting. If desired, it shoots 116 JPEG photos or 46 RAW photos as a result.

With the 24.2 megapixel APS-C sensor and the advanced BIONZ X processor, the Alpha 6400 can take on any shooting situation. The normal ISO range finds its limit at ISO 32,000, but is expandable to ISO 102,400.
Fed with some image processing algorithms from Sony's full-frame cameras, the Alpha 6400 manages to keep noise levels low and detail resolution high.
