Alpha 6400 E-mount camera with APS-C sensor
Unleash your creative potential with high-level performance and advanced features such as AI-powered Real-time Eye AF; new, high-precision Real-time Tracking; high-speed continuous shooting and 4K HDR (HLG) movie-shooting.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
From full-pixel readout without pixel binning enabling high-resolution 4K movie recording to HDR (HLG) and S-Log/S-Gamut options and Slow and Quick Motion recording, the α6400 is loaded with advanced capabilities to support your movie-making creativity.
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.
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 adapter (available separately) to facilitate the use of pro-level microphones to give you better audio quality.
Learn the four unique advantages of using Sony’s E-mount lens for video shooting. The combination of Sony’s lenses and cameras will enhance your video creation experience.
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.
An array of customization features, inherited from full-frame models, gives you greater flexibility and control over how your camera operates.
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.
