Sony A6400 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Sony a6400 Mirrorless Camera

Grab the Best of Life

Featuring a reliable design and apt performance to bolster creativity, the Sony a6400 is a sleek APS-C-format mirrorless camera featuring well-rounded photo and video capabilities. Using a proven sensor design, quick and precise AF performance, and smart operability, this camera is an ideal partner for capturing your everyday moments and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Processor

The APS-C-format 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor realizes smooth, nuanced image quality with minimal noise and high sensitivity from ISO 100-32000, which can further be expanded to ISO 102400 for working in low-light conditions. The sensor features a unique design that utilizes thin copper wiring, enhanced circuit processing, and an enhanced front-end LSI to boost light-gathering abilities, reduce noise, and increase readout speeds to benefit video recording. The sensor and BIONZ X processor combination also avails a top continuous-shooting rate of 11 fps with AF and AE, or up to 8 fps with a silent shutter, and permits 14-bit raw file output for a wide tonal and color scale.

UHD 4K Video Recording in XAVC S Format

  • Internal recording of UHD 4K video is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps using the full width of the sensor with 8-bit 4:2:0 color sampling using the 100Mbps XAVC S codec.
  • Oversampled 4K recording is also possible, which uses a 6K capture area within the Super 35 area, for greater detail. This full pixel readout is void of pixel binning for higher quality imagery with reduced moiré and aliasing.
  • Affording extensive customizable color and gamma controls, the ZV-E10 allows users to adjust the gamma, black level, knee, color level, and more. Use the same S-Log2 Gamma Curve that is found on high-end Sony Cinema cameras, which squeezes up to 1300% more dynamic range into the video signal then traditional Rec. 709, for increased post-production flexibility. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support is also available, along with the BT.2020 color space, for recording within a wide color gamut and, in addition to S-Log2, S-Log3 is also available for producing an effective 14-stop dynamic range with increased grading control in the shadow to mid-tone regions of the image.
  • In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.
  • Interval shooting mode is ideal for creating time-lapse movies with the aid of Imaging Edge software. Intervals can be selected between 1-60 seconds for recording up to 9999 sequential frames.
  • 4K video recording also avails the ability to produce 8MP stills during playback by taking a frame grab from a movie and storing it as a separate file.
  • Slow & Quick (S&Q) mode allows shooters to capture Full HD video at specified steps between 1-120 fps. These settings will allow you to slow down action as well as speed up a slow-moving scene.

4D FOCUS

Covering nearly the entire sensor area, a powerful 4D FOCUS system incorporates 425 on-chip phase-detection points along with 425 contrast-detection areas for precise focusing in as little as 0.02 seconds. The density of focusing points from this hybrid AF system also enables High-density Tracking AF Technology, which is adept at tracking moving subjects in a variety of lighting conditions.
  • Real-time Eye AF can be used to base focus on recognized human subjects' eyes for portraits and is available in both AF-S and AF-C modes and for both stills and video.
  • Eye AF can be used when photographing animal subjects, too, with any focusing mode when shooting stills.
  • Lock-on AF maintains focus on moving subjects throughout the use of a configurable frame that is set over the desired moving subject
  • Expand Flexible Spot employs neighboring focus points to retain focus on moving subjects even if the originally selected point loses focus
  • The Focus Magnifier function can be used for critical focus when homing in on minute subject details
  • Rear touchscreen can be used for Touch Focus and Touch Tracking control and a Touchpad Focus Control mode lets you use the rear screen intuitively while keeping your eye to the viewfinder
  • In addition to autofocus, the a6400 also features a Peaking MF function to benefit manual focus control by highlighted sharp edges of contrast for a more objective means of acquiring sharp focus

Body Design and Connectivity

  • Tru-Finder 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder offers a bright, high-resolution means for eye-level monitoring.
  • A 3.0" 921.6k-dot LCD touchscreen can be tilted 180° upward or 74° downward to suit working from high and low angles. The screen also incorporates White Magic technology with an RGBW pixel structure for increased brightness to support use in daylight conditions.
  • The touchscreen design avails access to Touch Focus control, for immediate focus point selection, as well as a Touchpad function which lets you smoothly and intuitively select a focus point on the screen while you're looking into the viewfinder.
  • Integrated 3.5mm microphone ports afford greater control over audio during video recording.
  • The included NP-FW50 rechargeable lithium-ion is rated for approximately 410 shots per charge when working with the LCD screen or 360 shots when using the viewfinder.
  • In addition to the battery, the a6400 can also be powered via a USB connection to a computer or mobile battery. This connection can also be used to charge the battery.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi enables the a6400 to instantly share imagery to mobile devices for direct sharing online to social networking, via email, and to cloud storage sites. NFC (Near Field Communication) is also supported, which allows for one-touch connection between the camera and compatible mobile devices; no complex set-up is required. Once connected, the linked mobile device can also display a live view image on its screen and remotely control the camera's shutter.
  • Bluetooth connectivity allows for location data acquisition.

Sony E PZ 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens

Sleek and Retractable Standard Zoom

An ideal companion for your compact, APS-C mirrorless camera, the E PZ 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens from Sony offers a versatile equivalent zoom range of 24-75mm as well as a retractable design that makes your system much more manageable when not in use. The useful focal length range and portable form factor make this a go-to lens when traveling or for everyday general shooting needs.

Form Factor and Optical Design

  • A variable aperture of f/3.5-5.6 helps keep the lens' overall size and weight to a minimum.
  • Due to a retractable design, this lens can be made to be extremely compact when not in use.
  • One extra-low dispersion glass element is featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
  • Four aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Power Zoom, Image Stabilization, and AF

  • Power Zoom mechanism enables making smooth zoom movements, suitable for video recording, via the on-lens switch or via camera-based controls on select camera bodies.
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
  • An internal focus design contributes to fast autofocus speeds and the minimum focus distance is just 9.8", suiting working with close-up subjects.

Sony A6400 Reviews

very versatile

The Sony a6400 is the camera that I needed. This kit with the 55-210mm lens is very versatile. Shipping was quick as well - would rather shop thru B&H than go through other vendors, because B&H always comes through reliably!

Great top quality kit.

I have the Sony A6000 (still love it) But I've bought the Sony 18-135mm, for that A6000 = WOW! Great optical quality. and a super ideal for one lens to travel. (I have other lenses, but the use as one lens to have this is it.)

Yet another purchase from B & H, Ordering was easy, Price was great, then one of the only parties that even have the A6400 available, And with free shipping it arrived in roughly 36 hours. The camera itself is a step up for my a 6000 And with free shipping it arrived in roughly 36 hours. The camera itself is a step up for my a6000, and there was a lot to learn however the touchscreen is great and the speed is incredible.

GREAT CAMERA FOR VIDEO

Bought two of these for doing video at church. One has a long lens and the other a short lese. Works great for switching back and forth. The camera are about 70ft away from the stage. I really like that I can go through the camera's settings, and then save the settings so if they get 'adjusted', you can always get back to where you started.

Always perfect!

When I ordered my camera, I knew what I was getting and that it would likely arrive in perfect shape, along with the accessories I bought. As usual, BH did not disappoint. I am always happy with the expediency of their order fulfillment and accuracy, fast shipping and that they totally stand behind their products. Thank you for another great shopping experience, as well as a great camera that I will photo-journal my upcoming trip with!

This is my first mirrorless camera, and my last camera was a Nikon D40, so it's been A WHILE, but so far this thing is GREAT! I'm just a hobbist, but so far I am very impressed with the quality and ease of use of the camera.

Still learning to be happy with APS-C

From full-frame to this. I wanted smaller and so I'm happy with the size. Just wish more of the lenses were 2.8.

How do you turn off the beep when lens snaps into focus, which menu? Have to shoot quietly, but not silently.
Asked by: Beth
I think this is correct...it's been a while since I did this on my A6400. Go into your menu; scroll to the second top icon; scroll down to get into those settings and go to page 9; scroll down to Audio Signals and click and set it to Off. You should be good to go with no beeps from that point on. Have a great day!!
