Reasons to choose this model
Speedy, reliable autofocus
Real-time Eye AF, Real-time Tracking
Incredible image quality
Reliable AF for great action shots
The camera's innovative AF quickly and reliably detects the position of the subject and then tracks the subject's motion, keeping it in sharp focus.
Fast continuous shooting with AF/AE at up to 11fps
Never miss a moment of the action thanks to fast internal processing and high-capacity buffer memory. Fire off shots at up to 11fps with after-view or 8fps for live-view, with minimal display lag, and take up to around 116 shots in JPEG (Standard) or 46 shots in compressed RAW format in one continuous burst.
Newly adopted AI-based subject recognition technology processes a vast amount of data to detect and track even rapidly moving subjects.
Sophisticated eye recognition and tracking
Persistent tracking for subjects on the move
Real-time Tracking reliably maintains focus
For sporting events and other situations where your subjects are moving quickly, keeping them in constant focus can make all the difference between catching an important, dramatic moment or missing it.
Enjoy beautiful, remarkably detailed images
Thanks to the large sensor and the latest image-processing engine, you can shoot whatever you encounter in your everyday life, with beautifully crisp and clear images and natural colours even in low-light settings.
A 24.2-megapixel sensor plus enhanced image-processing engine
The APS-C sensor features copper wiring and enhanced circuit processing that aid in boosting light collection efficiency. In conjunction with the image-processing engine, this helps achieve superior image resolution and more natural depiction of textures.
Cleaner images even in dim light
Improved noise suppression has led to cleaner image quality, even in dark scenes where high-sensitivity shooting is required. The native ISO sensitivity has increased to a maximum ISO 32000 (with expanded ISO sensitivity at a maximum ISO 102400 for stills). Noise reduction is particularly effective in the frequently used medium-to-high sensitivity range.
Creative movie production
From full-pixel readout without pixel binning enabling high-resolution 4K movie recording to HDR (HLG) and S-Log/S-Gamut options and Slow & Quick Motion recording, the α6400 is loaded with advanced capabilities to support your movie-making creativity.
Create time-lapse movies
Newly introduced interval shooting, which is continuous shooting with a pause of 1-60 seconds between still shots, can be carried out within the camera. This can then be used to create time-lapse movies on a PC using the Viewer app from the Imaging EdgeTM desktop applications.
Vlog with useful features
If you're shooting vlogs, the 180-degree tiltable LCD monitor is useful for framing your own shots. For sound recording, in addition to the external microphone jack there is also an optional XLR adaptor (available separately) to facilitate the use of pro-level microphones to give you better audio quality.
A high-resolution LCD monitor with handy touch-screen functions
The 3.0-type, 180-degree tiltable LCD screen does more than just display the scene in front of you -- it gives you quick control over a number of the camera's functions, with a variety of intuitive touch operations.
Set up your camera just the way you like
An array of customisation features, inherited from full-frame models, gives you greater flexibility and control over how your camera operates.
Imaging Edge™ Remote, Viewer, and Edit
Elevate your photography with Imaging Edge desktop applications. Use "Remote" to control and monitor shooting live on your PC screen; "Viewer" to quickly preview, rate, and select photos from large image libraries; and "Edit" to develop RAW data into high-quality photos for delivery. Get the best from Sony RAW files, and manage your productions more efficiently.
Capture One for Sony
