Sony is expanding its portfolio of mirrorless cameras in India after introducing the new A6400 APS-C mirrorless camera. The new compact camera from Sony is equipped with a touchscreen that can be rotated up to 180 degrees and supports 4K video recording at 30 fps.
The Sony A6400 mirrorless camera it will be available for purchase from February 8, which is today in the Sony Center outlets, Alpha stores and other major electronics stores. It is launched for a price of Rs 75.990 for the body while the kit with a 16-50 mm lens will cost Rs 85.990. In the meantime, if you buy the camera with a 18-135 mm lens kit, it will cost you 1.09,990 Rs.
The new camera has a design cues similar to the Sony A5100, however, it offers much improved features including 425 points for both contrast, phase detection and a hybrid auto focus system that is used by the expensive Sony A7R III.
Another major feature of the Sony A6400 is its subject detection in real time and Eye AF. Sony claims that the camera has the fastest AF acquisition rate of 0.02 seconds in the world. It is said that the "Eye AF" system uses artificial vision to identify a person and focus on his eyes. In particular, Sony has implemented a subject recognition algorithm that processes information based on the subject's distance, color brightness and other spatial information for quick accuracy and blocks the subject's focus in real time. The advanced 'real-time eye AF & # 39; AI automatically detects the eye of a subject in real time, improving the speed and accuracy of the focus.
While the compact mirrorless camera may be ideal for vloggers, the real tracking feature will be able to identify the eyes of the animals with a software update. As per reports, the update will be released this summer.
As for conventional specifications, the new Sony A6400 APS-C camera features a 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS image sensor and a Bionz X image processor. The camera can handle shots up to 11 fps with the shutter mechanical or 8 fps in its silent shooting mode with continuous AF / AE tracking. In terms of ISO, the camera has an ISO sensitivity between 32,000 and 1.02.400.
While this mirrorless camera contains advanced features, the Sony A6400, however, lacks body stabilization and has a relatively low 2.4 million dot XED OLED viewfinder. The camera includes an NP-FW50 battery, a USH-1 card slot and a USB charging port.
