The compact mirrorless camera also has real-time eye AF and subject tracking features. It uses AI to continuously detect the subject’s eyes (including animals). It works with multiple subjects and keeps everyone in the frame in focus. You can also manually select the eyes you want to track. Real-time subject tracking also detects depth, color, pattern, etc.
The Sony A6400 sports a new 24.2-megapixel Exmor Advanced Photo System type-C (APS-C) sensor with the company’s new Bionz X image processor. You can shoot pictures at 11fps when using the mechanical shutter (up to 8fps when shooting in the silent mode). The camera allows you to capture up to 116 JPEG images or 46 in uncompressed RAW format.
Additional features include 4K video recording (30fps), slow-motion video recording (1080p at 120fps), HDR video recording, and HLG support. A 180 degrees tilt and flip touchscreen is present on the back.
The Sony A6400 is aimed at online content creators, specifically vloggers. The new camera is the successor to the company’s A5100 mirrorless camera. It comes with pretty decent upgrades like the AI-powered eye and subject tracking. Sony also plans to bring the new feature (along with animal eye AF tracking features) to its higher-end models such as the A9, A7R, and A7 III.
