Sony A6400 Review | Trusted Reviews


The middle child in Sony's mirrorless camera line-up offer fantastic specs and features for the price.

Fantastic AF tracking ; Small size is great for travelling ; Good range of accessories and lenses

Fiddly operation ; Limited battery life ; Viewfinder and screen using old technology

The Sony A6400 offers fantastic specifications for the price and features. Highlights include excellent auto-focus tracking, a compact travel design and a diverse set of compatible accessories and lenses. Were it not for minor issues with its handling...

Sony Alpha A6400 review


Meet Sony's all-new mid-range mirrorless camera

Highly advanced autofocus ; Decent burst shooting speed ; Bright viewfinder ; Good video features ; Good value for the spec

No built-in image stabilization ; No headphone jack ; 16:9 aspect ratio screen

You could be forgiven for thinking that the Alpha A6400 is a minor upgrade over the A6300, and in many ways it is. But it's the upgraded and highly advanced autofocus that really shines here, even more so given that it's on a camera costing under...

Sony A6400 review: A star of track and field


A mirrorless system with E-mount lenses, the A6400 offers great autofocus and subject-tracking in a compact format factor.

Subject tracking AF system ; 180 degree tilting LCD screen for front of camera viewing ; Button and dial customisation ; Great low light performance ; Highly accomplished metering ; Pro video outputs and control

Lacks built-in stabilisation of A6500 ; Top rather than side tilting screen ; Screen blacks out at top burst setting ; Menu system still seems cluttered ; Slow start-up with power zoom ; Rolling shutter issue at 4K

Faster, brighter and a little vainer, the A6400 is a great little camera for the creative photographer and videographer. It builds on the success of its predecessors with a very accomplished focus tracking system, fast focus and more adaptable tilting...

Sony A6400 review: Pint-sized mirrorless packs a punch


Sony's A6400 offers portability without sacrificing image quality or practicality

Excellent picture quality ; Small and transportable ; Great video quality

Battery life could be better ; Image quality at high ISOs is lacking

It’s imperfect, of course. Image quality at high ISOs isn’t quite there (although the A6400 is great in its comfort zone), and battery life could stand to be better. There’s also the competition – if you’re lucky enough to have a grand to spare on a...

Sony A6400 review


Sony's mid-range mirrorless stops just short of greatness

Lightning fast, super accurate autofocus ; Small, lightweight body ; Generally strong all-round image quality

Some awkward ergonomic choices ; No in-body stabilisation ; Very visible rolling shutter effect

A handful of key issues prevent Sony’s small, fast shooter from being a resounding triumph

Sony Alpha A6400 Review - We review Sony's latest APS-C mirrorless camera, with a 24mp sensor, and unlimited 4K UHD video recording, it's offering ultra-fast autofocus, but does it deliver? Find out in our full review.

The compact size of the Sony Alpha A6400 makes it a great choice for travel compared to a larger full-frame camera. Image quality is impressive, with the camera delivering great image quality, with improved noise performance. The 18-135mm lens performs...

Sony A6400 camera review: Definitely not a vlogger's dream camera


Sony's A6400 is a mixed bag. It's essentially a rebadged A6300 with the same sensor and thus the same image quality, but a new a flip-up screen. It's not as good a vlogging or video camera as we expected, because it lacks in-body stabilization and has...

Excellent eye- and face-tracking autofocus ; Fast burst shooting speeds ; Improved programmable buttons ; Sharp video

Bad rolling shutter ; No in-body stabilization ; Dated sensor ; No headphone port
