Sony miniaturize mirrorless tech with the new α6400

Sony has announced Australian availability for the new, lightweight α6400 mirrorless interchangable lens camera.

“The α6400 represents another important step in the growth of Sony’s overall interchangeable lens camera lineup,” said Neal Manowitz, vice president of Imaging Solutions at Sony Electronics.

“By bringing so many of our latest and most advanced technologies from full-frame cameras to a brand new APS-C model, we are giving today’s creators more options than ever to realise their vision.”

As mentioned above, the hook here is that the Sony α6400 is an update to the popular and portable α6000 that leverages and ropes in some of the technical advances the company have made with more expensive Alpha-series hardware like the Sony α7r and Sony α9.

The Sony α6400 is equipped with a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sized image sensor and an upgraded BIONZ X processor. It supports standard ISO ranges up to ISO 32000 for video, and is expandable up to ISO 102400 when it comes to the stills.

Sony claim the α6400 "boasts the world’s fastest autofocus (AF) acquisition of 0.02 seconds, while also introducing the new advanced “Real-time Eye AF” and ”Real-time Tracking” capabilities." It supports high-speed shooting at up to 11 FPS with AF/AE tracking, 4K video recording and also features a fully 180-degree tiltable LCD touch screen. 

Sony are bundling the α6400 with a 16-50mm F3.5–5.6 lens but it should support most compatible E-Mount lenses.

The Sony α6400 will be available in Australia from February 2019 for a suggested retail price $1499 or $1699 as part of a kit that includes a 16-50mm F3.5–5.6 lens.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
