Vice president of Sony Electronics Said Neal Manowitz said, “The α6400 represents another important step in the growth of Sony’s overall interchangeable lens camera lineup. “By bringing so many of our latest and most advanced technologies from full-frame cameras to a brand new APS-C model, we are giving today’s creators more options than ever to realize their vision.”

Sony’s a6400, an updated 24.2MP mirrorless camera with a flip-up rear touch-screen and the processor and autofocus system ‘borrowed from the a9’. In many respects the camera resembles an a6300 with a more powerful processor. It has enhanced autofocus and a more extensively articulated touch-screen. But launched at a slightly lower cost. It also adds the time-lapse function that was lost when Sony moved away from offering in-camera apps.

The Alpha A6400 features a 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor with a front-end LSI. It is combined with the same BIONZ X image processor found the Alpha A9, A7R III and A7 III sees the A6400 deliver ISO sensitivity up to 102,400. Not only that, the processing speeds 1.8x faster than the A6300. Sony also believes color reproduction has been greatly improved. The Alpha A6400 features the world’s fastest autofocus at just 0.02 sec. While for the first time in an Alpha camera Sony is introducing Real-Time Eye AF with AI-based subject recognition.
