Offering internal 4K video recording with full pixel readout, the Sony a6400 is a camera for serious content creators. A wide range of picture profiles and recording settings (such as the S&Q Motion setting, which lets you record anywhere from 1-120 fps in Full HD) provide a myriad of options when it comes to capture and grading. You can even create time lapse movies using built-in interval shooting. Unlike in many camera models, recordings aren’t limited to 29 minutes’ duration so you can film for as long as your power and storage allow.
As well as a dust- and moisture-resistant magnesium alloy body, the Sony a6400 features a 3-inch, 921,600-dot resolution 180° tilting LCD touch screen that lets you frame and monitor vlogs, shoot from high and low working angles and capture selfies with ease. Not only that, it also provides touch-enabled focusing, tracking and shutter control for fast and intuitive operation. The camera’s improved interface makes shooting easier than ever. Never miss a moment thanks to 11 fps continuous shooting (9 fps with silent shutter).
