Sony presented this week a new A6400 camera that does not flash, intended for role-playing and other online content creators. This is mainly due to the screen touch screen, which can be rotated 180 degrees – allowing the user to see exactly what they are shooting.
The swivel screen is nothing new and is used in modern compact cameras, but is not present in many non-intermittent cameras. With the A6400, Sony will satisfy users who want the superior image and video quality and camera-specific features. All this will be offered for less than $ 1,000.
Like the predecessor of the a6300 and a6500, the a6400 has the same autofocus hybrid system borrowed from state-of-the-art Sony devices such as the A7 III. Thanks to the advanced system, the camera is able to sharpen the image in 0.02 seconds, which Sony claims to be the fastest concentration in the world. This is not the only reason for such a fast focus: the A6400 has up to 425 autofocus points making it ideal for shooting and fast scenes (for example, sports events).
Their Eye AF system, which recognizes people in the frame and enlarges the eye area, is now more accurate and will also work with animals after software upgrades.
The new a6400 relies on the already known 24.2 MP Exmor APS-C CMOS sensor, which works with the Bionz X image processor. As with previous generations, a mounting mount for the microphone can be found on the top of the device and a headphone jack on the side. The ability to record at 4K to 24 or 30 frames per second remains unchanged.
In addition to high-speed shooting, the camera is suited for fast frames due to the ability to capture 11 frames per second with a mechanical shutter and 8 frames per second in silent mode. In addition to the a6300 and a6500 models, ISO sensitivity has improved drastically, now 32,000 with the option to expand to 102,400. Sony says it can greatly reduce image noise even at higher ISO values. For video cameras, it will also be important for the model to support S-Log2 and S-Log3 color profiles.
On US shelves, the Sony a6400 is expected to arrive in February in Europe a little later. The price of the carcase will be around $ 900, complete with a lens of 16-50 f3.5 $ 1000, with a lens of 18-135 f3.5 – 5.6 and 1300 USD.
