Sony announce a6400 camera with eye AF and 'world's fastest autofocus'
Sony have announced the α6400, which brings a number of autofocus technologies from the company's full-frame cameras to the compact APS-C format.
The new camera appears to inherit much of the autofocus technology developed for the a9, matched to a faster processor and combined with the same body as the a6300.
Featuring a 24.2MP sensor, the camera promises to offer the world’s fastest autofocus (AF) acquisition time of 0.02 seconds, while also introducing the new Real-time Eye AF and Real-time Tracking capabilities just announced as updates for the A7 and A9 series.
The a6400 is capable of shooting at 11 fps (8 fps in silent mode) with continuous AF/AE lock, and offers 425 phase-detection AF points and 425 contrast-detection AF points covering approximately 84% of the image area.
Other features include a 180-degree fully tiltable LCD touch screen for self-recording, 4K movie recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning and interval recording for time-lapse videos.
The α6400 will be available in Australia from February 2019 for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $1,499. It will also be offered as a kit with the 16-50mm F3.5 – 5.6 lens for SRP $1,699.
