Sony A6400 Videos
“Really when it comes to photography now, we have good image quality. We have a lot of these challenges covered and what people still struggle with is getting a good hit rate, getting photos that when they get home and load them on the computer, they’re sharp and usable. So we have an affordable camera that has an immensely high hit rate, is easy to use and that’s why I think this is an awesome family camera or beginner’s camera. The price point is acceptable and you are getting the best auto focusing I’ve seen on an APS-C camera.”
“Now of course everyone else is starting to come out with their tracking focus modes – they’re adding eye focus. And Sony’s basically like ‘Hey guys, hold my beer, this is what I can do.’ It’s like a robot is now tracking your subject, and it does it seamlessly. And it’s a very complex system, however they’ve put it in an entry-level mirrorless camera.”
“We got almost 0% shots out of focus. The focusing accuracy was near perfect and that’s pretty remarkable. Because we really scrutinize focusing systems and getting 100% is not something that we’ve seen before and we put them under very challenging conditions. You never have to focus and recompose anymore.” – Tony Northrup
“Sony has improved the auto focus system considerably since the α6300 in both stills and video. So, between more advanced auto focus features, an actual flip-up screen, unlimited video recording and noticeably better battery life, those are reasons alone right there to upgrade. And the α6400 gives you pro-level auto focus and video capabilities in a package that is under $900. It’s pretty hard to find a comparable camera at this price point.”
“Now we have much more convenient tracking, no recording limit. That is huge, and along with that a lot less heat. We have a super bright screen now that doesn’t dim. That is huge for usability.” – Max Yuryev
