This is the new Sony Alpha a6400, a hybrid a5xxx and a6xxx. What might be a cool vlogging camera lacks one major feature, though: A headphone jack. And how do you use that selfie screen if any kind of microphone is attached to the camera?! Furthermore, there is no IBIS (in body image stabilization) in this camera. Vloggers tend to shoot handheld, don’t they? This leaves me a bit puzzled but anyway, let’s explore this new mid-range mirrorless!
Sony Alpha a6400
It inherits the a5100’s selfie screen but comes in a classic a6xxx body. Best of both worlds so to say. Since it not a dedicated pro camera, it lacks certain beloved features such as 4K60p, dual SD card slots or the new Z type batteries. However, it does sport a completely new APS-C sensor and sports fast auto focus. The sensor is a 24.2MP Exmor™ CMOS which works hand in hand with a latest-generation BIONZ X™ image processor.
Mic jack: yes.. but no headphone jack???
In stills mode, Sony claims the title for world’s fastest 0.02 seconds AF acquisition speed plus 425 phase-detection and contrast-detection AF points covering approximately 84% of image area. When recording in movie mode, the footage will be captures with full pixel readout (no pixel binning). Furthermore, Sony debuts a new tech called ‘Real-time Tracking’ in the Alpha a6400. Combining proven AF techniques with advanced AI algorithms should result in even better focus tracking across the board. Things like color, subject distance (depth) and pattern (brightness) are being used as spatial information in order to track subjects (eyes), objects and even animals (via firmware update later in 2019).
Standard ISO ranges up to ISO 32000 for both still and movie mode. The a6400 records 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) @ 30p with full pixel readout so it records roughly 2.4x the data which is required for UHD. After that, oversampling kicks in and results in a very clean 4K UHD output. A Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) picture profile is on board, as is S-Log2 and S-Log3. Zebra pattern and a gamma display assist help with judging the image. FullHD (1920 x 1080) tops out at 120p (100 Mbps).
Here are some of the most important specifications of the a6400 as a quick overview:
- Sony Alpha a6xxx body
- 4K UHD @ 30p
- FHD @ 120p (100Mbps)
- 180° flip touchscreen (“selfie mode”) with 921k-dots
- XGA OLED Tru-finder™ viewfinder
- 89 functions, assignable to 8 custom keys
- magnesium alloy design, dust and moisture resistant
