Sony has announced a new mirrorless camera to its e-mount line of cameras, the Sony α6400. Sony says the α6400 features many of the same technologies from the rest of the e-mount lineup packed into a lightweight body. Sony says this new addition has the world’s fastest autofocus acquisition of 0.02 seconds and introduces Sony’s new “Real-time Eye AF” and “Real-time Tracking.”
The new α6400 also has high-speed shooting at up to 11 frames-per-second with AF/AE tracking. The new camera also boasts a new-generation BIONZ X image processing engine that kicks out great images, 4K video, and this camera finally has a tiltable 180-degree touchscreen. Many α6000, α6300, and α6500 owners would have loved a tiltable screen!
“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.”Neal Manowitz, vice president of Imaging Solutions at Sony Electronics
The α6400 will ship in February 2019 for a suggested retail price of US$900/CA$1,250. It will also be offered as a kit with the 16-50mm F3.5 – 5.6 lens for a suggested retail price of US$1,000/CA$1,350, or in a kit with the 18-135mm F3.5 – 5.6 lens for a suggested retail price of US$1,300/CA$1,750.
