Sony has launched Alpha A6400 mirrorless camera with focus on autofocus. In fact, the company is claiming it to be the camera with the world's fastest AI-powered autofocus. It further introduces "Real-time Eye AF" and "Real-time Tracking" capabilities for clearer and sharper images.
The Sony Alpha A6400 sports a 24.2-megapixel Exmor Advanced Photo System type-C (APS-C) sensor. It is paired with Sony's Bionz X image processor which should result in detailed photos and "superior image resolution". It offers a maximum ISO 32000 and is capable of recording footage in 4K quality. One can also use it to shoot Slow Motion and Quick Motion footage.
In terms of autofocus technologies, there are 425 phase-detection autofocus points which should help when clicking photos in quick-motion settings like sports. The newly-introduced Real-time Eye AF and Real Tracking technologies further enhance the overall functionality of the camera. The first one is said to identify humans and focus on their eyes automatically and the second one helps in keep tracking the same in real-time.
It has an LCD display with touchscreen input and 180-degree rotation. This is something which will be appreciated more by vloggers as they can easily preview whether they are capturing shots as they want to or not. Sony has priced the Alpha A6400 at $900 for just the body and at $1,350 with the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. It will go on sale sometime in February 2019 in the United States.
