My question when I watched this was does this make up for the lack of IBIS.

IBIS won't make your subject still. It will only prevent the sensor to be moved. Great for low light landscape, not much with kids moving around.

At its price point it's a pretty good value. The A7000 is still coming and that will have IBIS.

^ That camera will be very impressive. If it comes with IBIS & that impressive AF, I might bite, only if they really do put out some more APS-C lenses.

Depends on price though no? I'm guessing this will be around A7II price or higher, depending on features.


I also wonder if Canon and Nikon will get more involved in Dx MILC, in the same way they did with Fx? That is, if/when Sony start to pick it up more..

^ Yes. The price will be a factor. If it gets too close to FF cost, there's really no point in me buying it. I'd rather go A7III instead.

But yeah, as far as I can see, for the price you pay, nothing comes close to the AF performance of this new a6400. I've seen a few videos showing the AF capabilities & I'm very impressed.

How come that a year ago A6500 was close to 70% when comes to eye af performance and now is under 40%? Oh wait, there is a new camera that need some promotion.

Tony Northrup and his marketing style...

I think you missed the point of Culture. He mean't that AF improvement wasn't compensating for lack of IBIS feature. AF can be as good as ever, but the use still need to carry a tripod around for static shots.

So what if it doesn't have Ibis? Almost all Sony E mount lenses have Optical Steady Shot.

I suspect their goal is to upsell people into FF.

But yes the a6400 looks really nice for a Dx MILC. I just wish it had IBIS.


If anything though, it shows where the technology is heading.

One might mount more than just native E mount lenses to it.

Not enough of those lenses to justify raising the cost of this camera. It is meant as a middle/high end mirrorless aps-c .Sony likely has a camera about ready for those people soon.

I note that the DPR 6400 review now claims over-heating is no longer a problem with the A6400, a problem that was widely reported in it's immediate predecessor the A6300.

DPReview TV: Sony a6400 review: Digital Photography Review

This is despite the introduction of un-limited video recording time in the A6400, and an apparently more powerful system CPU too ("an upgraded BIONZ X processor", but still the same Bionz X chip as the A6300).

I wonder what Sony did to achieve better heat management in the A6400, since the camera body shape, sensor/EVF/rear display specifications and even body materials ('robust, magnesium alloy design') don't seem different between the A6300 & A6400. CIPA battery life is also practically the same (A6300: 400, A6400: 410), so the A6400 is using about the same amount of power as the A6300 too, all within the same little confined camera body.
