Sony A6400 Boxing Day Deals 2021
The A6400 is Sony’s latest mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. It features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, 425 phase-detection autofocus points and the ability to shoot at up to 11fps with continuous focus tracking. This means it can more than hold its own against the current crop of DSLRs. We’ve had a chance to road test this new camera and here’s what we think of Sony’s latest offering.

How does it compare to the A6500?
The A6400 shares a lot of features with the A6500 that was released in 2016. They both feature a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, 11fps burst shooting, 4K video and subject-tracking autofocus (which is largely responsible for the increase in speed). However, the A6400 doesn’t have a viewfinder and has a slightly less powerful battery compared to its predecessor.
The biggest talking point is that the A6400 offers improved autofocus tracking (phase detection as well as contrast detection), which means it can now track subjects with greater accuracy and speed. It also features a touchscreen LCD, which can be flipped up 180-degrees so you can take selfies – a feature that is sure to be a hit in this day and age.
The A6400 doesn’t have inbuilt stabilisation but any lens you attach will provide image stabilization. This means that when you’re shooting with a non-stabilised lens, the camera will be able to steady it for you in order to get sharp images.
Furthermore, the A6400 offers improved video functionality that includes S-Log gamma recording. This means it can shoot in flat footage that you can then colour grade later on. The A6400 also has the ability to record 4K footage at up to 100mbps.
