To the delight of Sony camera aficionados, the Japanese manufacturer has taken the wraps off the A6400 compact mirrorless camera.
The refresh is targeted at creators and vloggers packing a touchscreen that flips around 180 degrees.
The A6400 also boasts the hybrid autofocus system Sony also uses in its Alpha series cameras (like the $3,000 A7 III) Sony says that as a result the A6400 can boast the “world’s fastest 0.02 second AF acquisition speed”.
While not a direct replacement for the Alpha A6500, the A6400 replaces the Alpha A6300. A6400 packs in a 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor with a front-end LSI, as well as the very same BIONZ X image processor which can be found in the Alpha A9, A7R III and A7 III.
ISO sensitivity goes all the way up to 102,400 and the A6400 touts Real-Time AF Tracking with AI-based subject recognition.
The Sony Alpha A6400 will be available from early next month and is expected to be priced at $900 for the body only.
