The Sony Alpha a6400 Mirrorless Camera is Available for Pre-order

We’ve written about a lot of Sony cameras over the years, because they are arguably the best options for most entry-level consumers wanting to get into the mirrorless game. As ever, the company is continuing its onward march of incremental improvements with the upcoming Sony Alpha a6400, which features a 180-degree touch flip screen that vloggers and video creators in particular will get a lot of use from.

The quick rundown is that the a6400 sports a 24.2-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor paired with a BIONZ X image processing engine. Its native ISO range is 100–32,000 for both stills and video, and can be expanded to 102,400. It can shoot video in 4K up to 30fps. It boasts blazing fast autofocus speed that can lock onto even a fast-moving subject within 0.02 seconds.

It has a “Real-time Eye-AF” system that uses AI to identify people and automatically focus on their eyes, or even one specific eye if you tell it to. And lastly, it can continuously shoot high-res photos at high frame rates β€” up to 11 fps with the mechanical shutter, and up to 8 fps with full AF/AE tracking while silent shooting.

Whether you’re looking for a first mirrorless camera or in the market to upgrade from the one you bought a few years ago, the Sony Alpha a6400 looks to be a solid contender in this space. It will start shipping on February 28th, 2019 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon in a few configurations:
