Despite its compact size and light weight, the α6400 delivers speedy performance and a range of features you'd expect from a full-frame model. Whether you're taking still shots or movies, creative compositions or everyday selfie shots, you'll enjoy beautiful images that you'll want to share, on the go.

Innovation in Service to Your Creativity

Unleash your creative potential with high-level performance and advanced features such as AI-powered Real-time Eye AF; new, high-precision Real-time Tracking; high-speed continuous shooting and 4K HDR (HLG) movie-shooting.


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.

Fast Continuous Shooting up to 11fps

Never miss a moment of the action thanks to fast internal processing and a high-capacity buffer memory. Fire off shots at up to 11fps with after-view or 8fps 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.

Silent Continuous Shooting up to 8fps

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 8fps 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.

Smart Subject-tracking

Newly adopted AI-based subject recognition technology processes a vast amount of data to detect and track even rapidly moving subjects.

Real-time Tracking 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.



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 colors, even in low-light settings.

A 24.2 Megapixel 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 color reproduction. Human skin tones look more natural, and reproduction of plant colors 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) and S-Log/S-Gamut options and Slow & Quick Motion recording, the α6400 is loaded with advanced capabilities to support your movie-making creativity.

  • High-resolution 4K recording - Super 35 mm format recording with 2.4x 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-Log and HLG - The camera provides a variety of options for picture profiles, including S-Log and HDR (HLG)
  • 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 movies 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 adapter (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) can be recorded in the camera, without post-processing on a PC. Alternatively, 120fps high-speed shooting 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.

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.


Set up Your Camera Just the Way You Like

An array of customization features, inherited from full-frame models, gives you greater flexibility and control over how your camera operates.


Imaging Edge Desktop Applications

Elevate your photography with the Imaging Edge desktop applications. Use “Remote” to control and monitor shooting live on your PC screen; “Viewer” to quickly preview, rate, and select photos from large image libraries; and “Edit” to develop RAW data into high-quality photos for delivery. Get the best from Sony RAW files, and manage your productions more efficiently.

Capture One for Sony

Capture One Express (for Sony) is a free award-winning editing software that provides RAW development, easy management and powerful editing tools. Capture One Pro (for Sony) can be bought for even more editing tools and tethered shooting capability.


Lightweight, Compact, High-magnification zoom lens

With broad zoom range extending from 18mm wide-angle to 135mm telephoto, the versatile lens covers a wide range of subjects and situations. It features compact, lightweight portability that maximizes the APS-C format E-mount advantage, as well as fast, precise, quiet AF operation that make it an excellent one-lens solution for day-to-day shooting.

  • 7.5x zoom in a compact, lightweight lens - This lens weighs in at a mere 11.5oz (325g), and is no larger than 67.2mm in diameter and 88mm in length. At the telephoto end of the zoom range the focal length is 202.5mm (35mm format equivalent), providing ample reach for general shooting as well as landscapes, wildlife, portraits, and more.
  • High corner-to-corner resolution - A new optical design that includes one aspherical element contributes to consistently high resolution from the image center right out to the edges throughout the zoom range, while two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements effectively suppress chromatic aberration. Built-in optical image stabilization makes it easier to shoot blur-free images handheld.
  • Close-ups with beautiful background bokeh - Minimum focusing distance is just 0.45 m (1.48 ft) (0.29x max. magnification), making it easy to shoot close-ups of sweets, flowers, and wildlife that combine sharp in-focus subjects with beautiful background bokeh. Bokeh quality is enhanced by a circular aperture design.
  • Fast, precise, quiet AF is ideal for stills and movies - A precision linear motor powers the lens's AF system, for fast, precise, quiet operation that is ideally suited for movies as well as stills.
