US preorders for the new Sony A6400 are now open!


US readers can now preorder the new Sony A6400 at BHphoto, Adorama, FocusCamera and Buydig. No preorders yet at Amazon.

Sony A6400 in Europe at Calumet Germany, ParkCameras UK, Jessops
Sony A6400 in Asia at Sony Australia and Sony Japan.

These are my early thoughts on this camera purely based on specs and previews from youtubers:

What’s to like about the new A6400:
– Packs a lot of tech into a relatively affordable camera ($900)
– Class leading autofocus tech
– Wildlife shooters will love the Animal EYE-AF
– selfie screen if you are one of those people who needs it
– Built-in Intervalometer
– plenty of nice incremental improvements on usability and image quality

What’s not to like:
– Doesn’t have on sensor stabilization
– Fully articulating side screen would have it made easier for youtuber to use the hotshoe mic
– Doesn’t use the new Z-battery
– same unexciting conservative A6xxx body
– same LCD resolution as previous A6500 A6300 cameras
– no improvements on weather sealing

Overall impression:
This is a not so exiting new camera that actually has many sensible improvements. After the A7III this is probably the second best E-mount camera in terms or price-quality balance.
