About the prize
The Sony α6400 mirrorless, interchangeable-lens camera features Real-time Eye autofocus, Real-time Tracking, and the world’s fastest autofocus (AF), clocking in at 0.02 seconds, along with 425 phase-detection and contrast-detection AF points.
Many of the AF technologies have come from Sony’s pro range of cameras, including the α9. Real-time eye autofocus employs artificial intelligence-based object recognition to detect and process eye data in real time, resulting in improved accuracy, speed, and tracking. In all autofocus modes, the camera now automatically detects the eyes of the subject and activates Eye AF with a half press of the shutter button.
The camera houses a 24.2 megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS image sensor and latest-generation BIONZ X image processor. High-speed continuous shooting is up to 11fps with the mechanical shutter and 8fps when shooting silently. The α6400 has high-resolution 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) movie recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, plus interval recording for time-lapse videos.
The camera body features a tough magnesium alloy design, is dust and moisture resistant, and has a shutter rated for approximately 200,000 cycles. Files can be seamlessly transferred to a smartphone or tablet when using the Imaging Edge Mobile application.
