Reasons to choose this model
Speedy, reliable autofocus
Real-time Eye AF, Real-time Tracking
Incredible image quality
4K movies and pro-level features
Smart operability
Lightning-fast AF
Reliable AF for great action shots
The camera's innovative AF quickly and reliably detects the position of the subject and then tracks the subject's motion, keeping it in sharp focus.
  • 425 phase-detection AF points
    Densely distributed focus points blanket around 84% of the image area, aiding subject capture.
    [1] Phase-detection AF coverage (425 points) [2] Contrast-detection AF coverage (425 points)
  • 0.02 sec.4 AF speed
    The camera's Fast Hybrid AF system combines the best of phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF.
  • Persistent tracking ability
    When subjects are in motion, AF points densely positioned around the subject are activated for accurate tracking.

Fast continuous shooting with AF/AE at up to 11fps5
Never miss a moment of the action thanks to fast internal processing and high-capacity buffer memory. Fire off shots at up to 11fps5 with after-view or 8fps5 for live-view, with minimal display lag, and take up to around 116 shots in JPEG (Standard) or 46 shots in compressed RAW format in one continuous burst.6
Silent continuous shooting at up to 8fps7
When your shoot calls for absolute quiet, such as when you're photographing a live performance, silent shooting with no shutter noise allows shooting at up to 8fps7 with AF/AE tracking, even in AF-C mode, with Real-time Eye AF, or with Real-time Tracking, expanding your range of shooting options.
Real-time Eye AF, Real-time Tracking
Smart subject-tracking
Newly adopted AI-based subject recognition technology processes a vast amount of data to detect and track even rapidly moving subjects.
Sophisticated eye recognition and tracking
Accurate eye recognition
Enhanced Real-time Eye AF8 reliably recognises human faces, and focuses precisely on a person's eyes. When AF-C is set, Real-time Eye AF8 maintains stable focus on a moving subject even when part of the face is hidden, the face is backlit, or the subject is facing downwards.
Prioritise your subject's left eye or right eye
Now you can select Left Eye, Right Eye, or Auto from the menu in advance, leaving you free to concentrate on composition. These selections can be assigned to custom buttons, allowing you to quickly toggle between choices mid-shoot.
Stunning animal images with Real-time Eye AF for Animals9
Real-time Eye AF for Animals supports animal tracking, allowing fast, precise, automatic detection and tracking of animal eyes, with just a half-press of the shutter button. This new capability will vastly increase the photographer’s success rate when shooting animals in the wild or beloved pets at home – situations where accurate focus positioning has previously been a challenge.10
Persistent tracking for subjects on the move
Real-time Tracking11 reliably maintains focus
For sporting events and other situations where your subjects are moving quickly, keeping them in constant focus can make all the difference between catching an important, dramatic moment or missing it.
A new subject-recognition algorithm holds onto moving subjects
A newly developed subject recognition algorithm processes spatial information based on colour, subject distance (depth), pattern (brightness), and face and eye information at high speed in real time.
Seamless transitions from body to face and eye tracking
When shooting a distant person in motion, the tracking system captures the whole body, and the focus area will seamlessly change between the face and the eyes according to the condition of the subject.
Simply touch and track
Once Touch Tracking is set in the menu, select your subject simply by touching the monitor. For either stills or movies, the camera will begin to auto-track the subject.
Incredible image quality
Enjoy beautiful, remarkably detailed images
Thanks to the large sensor and the latest image-processing engine, you can shoot whatever you encounter in your everyday life, with beautifully crisp and clear images and natural colours even in low-light settings.
A 24.2-megapixel12 sensor plus enhanced image-processing engine
The APS-C sensor features copper wiring and enhanced circuit processing that aid in boosting light collection efficiency. In conjunction with the image-processing engine, this helps achieve superior image resolution and more natural depiction of textures.
Cleaner images even in dim light
Improved noise suppression has led to cleaner image quality, even in dark scenes where high-sensitivity shooting is required. The native ISO sensitivity has increased to a maximum ISO 32000 (with expanded ISO sensitivity at a maximum ISO 102400 for stills). Noise reduction is particularly effective in the frequently used medium-to-high sensitivity range.
Natural-looking images that match what you see
Image-processing algorithms inherited from full-frame cameras have led the way to more lifelike colour reproduction. Human skin tones look more natural, and reproduction of plant colours has also been improved.
4K movies and pro-level features
Creative movie production
From full-pixel readout without pixel binning enabling high-resolution 4K movie recording to HDR (HLG)3 and S-Log/S-Gamut13 options and Slow & Quick Motion recording14, the α6400 is loaded with advanced capabilities to support your movie-making creativity.
  • High-resolution 4K recording
    Super 35mm format recording with 2.4x15 oversampling results in 4K movies (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) with extraordinary image quality.
  • Fast Hybrid AF for movies
    Smooth, steady focus is in your control with high-performance AF tracking.
  • S-Log13 and HLG3
    The camera provides a variety of options for picture profiles, including S-Log and HDR (HLG)3
    [ 1 ] S-Gamut3.Cine/S-log3 [ 2 ] Colour Grading S-Log2 and S-Log3 are premised on processing pictures.

Create time-lapse movies
Newly introduced interval shooting, which is continuous shooting with a pause of 1-60 seconds between still shots, can be carried out within the camera. This can then be used to create time-lapse movies16 on a PC using the Viewer app from the Imaging EdgeTM desktop applications.
Vlog with useful features
If you're shooting vlogs, the 180-degree tiltable LCD monitor is useful for framing your own shots. For sound recording, in addition to the external microphone jack there is also an optional XLR adaptor (available separately) to facilitate the use of pro-level microphones to give you better audio quality.
Take advantage of various movie functions
Movies in slow motion (up to 5x) and quick motion (up to 60x)14 can be recorded in the camera, without post-processing on a PC. Alternatively, 120fps high-speed shooting2 of Full HD video can be used to create high-quality slow-motion footage in post-production. Proxy movie recording allows easier editing and previewing, and Photo Capture lets you extract stills from recorded movies.
Smart operability
A high-resolution LCD monitor with handy touch-screen functions
The 3.0-type, 180-degree tiltable LCD screen does more than just display the scene in front of you -- it gives you quick control over a number of the camera's functions, with a variety of intuitive touch operations.
Touch Pad provides smooth focus-area selection
The Touch Pad function allows you to smoothly move the current focus position while you're looking through the viewfinder. Simply slide your finger across the monitor until you find the desired point you want to focus on.
Touch Focus and Touch Shutter
When you want to shift the focus, even to the periphery of the frame, Touch Focus does it with a simple touch to the monitor. With Touch Shutter, you can set the focus and trip the shutter with a single touch.
Touch Tracking turns on Real-time Tracking at any time
With the Touch Tracking function you can simply touch the monitor to activate Real-time Tracking for either stills or movies. The camera will instantly lock onto the target subject and keep it in constant focus.
Set up your camera just the way you like
An array of customisation features, inherited from full-frame models, gives you greater flexibility and control over how your camera operates.
Customised buttons put frequent operations at your fingertips
Each of the camera's eight keys and controls can be assigned to any of 89 functions and operations, with different operations depending on whether you're shooting still images or movies, or in replay mode.
My Menu and My Dial features put you in control
My Dial lets you assign frequently used functions to the control dial and control wheel for faster access when you're shooting. My Menu allows registration of up to 30 different menu items for quick access to menu items you use often.
Visualised setup screen for customisation
On the custom settings screen, an illustration showing the camera's operable components shows you at a glance which button or switch you're assigning, and when you're setting up the function menu you can view the structure of the actual function screen.
