With eye AF and crazy lock-on you no longer need to worry about AF mode fiddling, focus points, and other distractions for most shots. Continuous Video Tracking is now becoming the benchmark of any camera, and those won't can't do C-AF reliably will died. So I can only hope that some manufacturer does wake up, smells the coffee, fires their entire SW development dept, and buys a *software* company that knows its stuff. @captura - "Sony prefers to offer new FE lenses so an upgrade path to A7 & A9 bodies is clear for A6xxx owners.". The other day I try doing a home video, a birthday cake celebration, with all family in picture... everything was set... when I look at the footage, I don't know why, but the camera lock focus on a wall behind us... everything was out of focus...everyone got frustrated :(. This is the same reason why A7siii and A7000 could be the best camera but Sony continues to postpone their release, not because like they say "the engineering is not ready" or they want to "over-accomplish user expectation", but because people will stop buying the already best-selling, market-dominating A7iii and A6400. Battery life has improved from the A6000 to the A6300 and now to the A6400. The Sony Alpha A6500 may sound like a newer camera than the A6400, but that’s just Sony trying to confuse you with its slightly baffling naming system. I am a micro 43 shooter. Can you explain me why? It also has some annoying design flaws. Real-time Eye AF for Animals supports animal tracking, allowing fast, precise, automatic detection and tracking of animal eyes, with just a half-press of the shutter button. The a6400 scored neck-and-neck with the X-T30 and both received the Gold Award. Meaning two more button presses to lock focus and recompose.- Setting ‘Focus Tracking’ to custom button doesn’t seem to work in most modes.- A ‘Cancel Tracking’ message pops up in EVF sometimes after shooting but it’s difficult to actually make it happen. Sample Images Intro Specifications Performance Compared User's Guide Recommendations Sony A6400 (14.3 oz./406g with battery and card, about $898) and ZEISS 24mm f/1.8. I am thinking of reducing my equipment and was also thinking to use the momentum and switch systems, especially sony A6400 for the super AF. A part or whole of software/services installed into or accessible through the product may be changed, discontinued, removed, suspended, or terminated without notice. Only few things work at all, and nothing works well. The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. May be because the Nikon Z6 is a FF big and expensive system, very few original lenses available and no compatible with screw AF old Nikon lenses using the adapter? Since then there have been improvements around the edges, like BSI, readout speed, OSPDAF, and so on, but relatively tiny improvements in IQ. Their full frame lenses can be used on APS-c E-mount cameras, and when customers decide to migrate to full frame they'll already have lens for that system. Proxy movie recording allows easier editing and previewing, and Photo Capture lets you extract stills from recorded movies. old school DSLR shooters are the most stubborn people on the planet. Yet our in-house contrarian, Richard, isn't convinced their design is well matched to any one type of user. Gone are the days when poor C-AF is acceptable in any mirrorless camera. XH1 is way over the $1000 category, so why even bring it up here?The A6500 is in the same price range as the XH1, and it is the Sony camera with IBIS. Each of the camera's eight keys and controls can be assigned to any of 89 functions and operations, with different operations depending on whether you're shooting still images or movies, or in replay mode.Â. So there is no upgrade path between Canon APS-C mirrorless and Canon FF mirrorless. The A7-lll & A9 has done the same for FF mirrorless world. For sound recording, in addition to the external microphone jack there is also an optional XLR adaptor (available separately) to facilitate the use of pro-level microphones to give you better audio quality. I tried all the tricks I could but nothing helped that much. Cosinaphile, I hate narcisitic people, I hate this "Genaration Me", but I need a fully articulated LCD to make my own videos, to frame myself in picture, to watch the exposure, etc, and also to protect the LCD from scratches, for instances... All professional video cameras for video have a fully articulated LCD. The Canon EOS Rebel T8i (also known as the EOS 850D or Kiss X10i in some markets) is a 24MP DSLR aimed at first-time DSLR buyers and enthusiasts. Natural History Museum's Wildlife Photographer of the Year has selected 25 photos for its People's Choice Award. I went back to apsc, sony in particular because I want great value per dollar spent. A clearly and logically organized menu is always preferable. Take a look. I'm sure it will sell like the hot cakes though. A big part of their business is in selling lenses too. A newly developed subject recognition algorithm processes spatial information based on colour, subject distance (depth), pattern (brightness), and face and eye information at high speed in real time. They were smart enough to open up E mount protocol, but their wisdom ended there, alas. Being a Fujifilm shooter, I must give kudos to Sony for releasing what seems to be a fantastic camera that will certainly compete with the Fujifilm X-T30. Respect, Sony managed to get worse than Canon in Exposure Latitude ... https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr144_0=sony_a6400&attr144_1=canon_eosm50&attr144_2=fujifilm_xt30&attr144_3=fujifilm_xt30&attr146_0=100_6&attr146_1=100_6&attr146_2=160_6&attr146_3=160_7&attr177_0=off&attr177_1=off&attr177_2=off&attr177_3=off&normalization=compare&widget=665&x=-0.07750481008931405&y=-0.9625850265790026.

The 135/1.8 is one of the two APSC lenses which I said has been released since 2012. Last time I had to create "Huawei crap" folder and move there non-removable apps ("out of sight"). Sony's habit of giving similar names to cameras that look the same can make it difficult to choose between them. > External app is better in two respects <...>. Newly introduced interval shooting, which is continuous shooting with a pause of 1-60 seconds between still shots, can be carried out within the camera. No, it's not really a similar strategy. Close enough to Fuji's classic chrome :) Have seen settings to mimic portra/astria/velvia films via this route too. @captura - "Why should Sony waste resources developing new APSC lenses when Sigma and others are doing it for them?". And I'm talking about usability, not fancy wallpapers and such: I replace default keyboard, change soft keys etc. I will say, that's a -deep- menu system they have, haha. The fundamental problem with Sony, and especially the E mount still remains. In the real world I was scratching to get 100 shots, and even then only if I rattled them off literally one straight after the other. @capturaThe FE 28-70mm may be small enough, but on APS-C it becomes a 42-105mm, which is not a very useful range. Thanks for pointing it out. I am very tempted to pick up one of the older Sony A7 bodies to use with my old Pentax screw mount and Leica M mount lenses. If you're seeing less than CIPA-reported battery life, that means you have various functions in the camera left on such as wifi, apps, and/or high sleep limits on the EVF or LCD keeping them on a long time...or you are doing a lot of viewing/playback, or taking long to line up and take shots. The 105/1.8 is the other. Sony has boosted its mid-range APS-C lineup with the launch of the 24-megapixel A6400 mirrorless camera. I bought 30mm and 56mm Sigmas (great lenses! Sigma has introduced its new 'I series' of compact, premium full-frame lenses for E and L mounts. will get my money. @vadimsIt’s still a bad idea: good UI means you have sensible defaults to begin with, so that little or no configuration is required for most users. ; we won't have comparable capabilities in cameras for decades, if ever. Yeah noticed when I got mine (first sony purchase, and VERY happy for family/kids photos with this thing) I noticed I didn't really like the skin compared to my Nikon, but yeah, lo and behold, a few clicks around on the profiles and yay, much better. Never miss a moment of the action thanks to fast internal processing and high-capacity buffer memory. It would probably be some very small niche hobby, like landscape painting! This might be the reason why. I bought an A5100 vs NEX 7 since I wanted tilting touch screen and 50Mbps 1080p XAVC-S video along with the brilliant touch AF-C of A5100. But when people are complaining about the small 16-50 I can only laugh at them, because it’s tiny and totally inexpensive as kit. So why isn't a "objective" standard of menu, layouts etc for non-sony cameras. Anyone still have a NEX-3? hardly... 2019 saw plenty of new cameras released, some of which were very important - and seriously impressive. While they were out shooting their video about Sigma's new lenses, Chris and Jordan filled up a memory card with photos from the 35mm F2 DG DN using Panasonic bodies. DJI's second-generation Pocket camera includes a long list of useful upgrades including a wider, faster lens, a larger sensor, more resolution, improved audio and an optional handle that significantly improves control and supports live streaming. Earlier this week we published our samples from the new Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN when mounted on a Sony body. How long can it continues shooting video without heat issue or the issue still exists. sony 6400 bagged both EISA and tips awards. Purchase the Nikon Z6, and you're happy with it's ergonomics and fantastic IQ. And so on, and so forth. if no need 4k, no need sport shootingi bet stills IQ almost same as A6000, You loose about 1/3 of light through the mirror and the bsi sensors are a bit better at high iso anyway. For either stills or movies, the camera will begin to auto-track the subject. Our Verdict. Image-processing algorithms inherited from full-frame cameras have led the way to more lifelike colour reproduction. Oh, and it's a lot of fun too. Have you tried after powering the camera off, to pop out the battery and then pop it back in again. Again, very different strategies! The 18-135 kit also comes with a 100$ lower price than buying the camera and lens separately. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. Big mistake of dpreview on Specifications>videography modes.Video formats : delete MOV and replace it with Mp4.This camera does not export to MOV. Sealed buttons and dials and double-layered interlocking components help keep out dust and moisture. Which is not so good with the Sony. What’s the best camera for around $2000? Sony's a6400 is a near-universally capable camera, with a market-leading autofocus implementation at a surprisingly modest price. Sony Alpha A6400 review Meet Sony's all-new mid-range mirrorless camera By Phil Hall 04 February 2019. > good UI means you have sensible defaults to begin with, > If you need an external app to configure a camera> to your liking, you’ve already lost the battle. That is certainly not the case with Sony's mirrorless system. Sony doesn't even consider it to be an "enthusiast-level" camera because they say an "enthusiast-level" APS-C camera is coming: https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sony-confirms-in-interview-that-a-new-enthusiast-aps-c-camera-is-coming/. Same lens on Olympus EM-10, no problems there. Unless there is a way to change the default settings for jpeg. Most companies can't do everything all at once. Mobile app should be able to download that file, edit it, and upload back. If I wanted to have a 3:2 format crop sensor camera I would have to go with Fuji. In your spec summary, you show both the A6400 and A6300 as having Bluetooth. The new DJI Mavic Mini 2 includes several notable improvements over the original Mavic Mini, including 4K video, Raw photo capability, and DJI's robust OcuSync 2.0 transmission system. It can be that you are looking at the screen more then normal (I take a picture, look at the screen just to see if it is right and I switch of the camera). But then, if someone walks into a static scene and you quickly want to track them, you have to use a custom button set to Focus Mode and change it back to Continuous, and then use another custom button to initiate Face Priority. I use custom Fn settings and reassign buttons too, and "My Menu" for the items that I sometimes use but not enough to put in Fn, and also for the items that are impossible to put in Fn, such as compressed/uncompressed raw. Fuji also has an 18-135, but it's pricier at $800 ($300 more than Sony's). Those same lenses are available in m4/3 mount too.

Lightweight, compact and sturdily built, the α6400 is loaded with impressive capabilities and features. Sony's a6400 is a compact 24MP mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with an APS-C sensor that will serve plenty of photographers from family documentarians to pro shooters looking for a lightweight second body. I have read in the DXO test of the A6600: "The A6600’s nearest competitor in terms of sensor size is the one it replaces, the Sony A6500. Just because you can get used to and learn to live with something, doesn't mean that you're comfortable eith it. There are many cameras out there to compare with and form an objective consensus. yeah, who cares if your x-h1 photos are blurry because the af is weak sauce. Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero-D Shift lens sample gallery (DPReview TV). To the best of my recollection nothing happens when you move the MF wheel in AF. I wish M43 can catchup & add similar Real Time Eye Tracking AF. So, these are very different strategies! The 18-105 is the better lens: very sharp, constant f/4 aperture, non-telescoping. Check out the winners of the 2020 DPReview Awards! The Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN is for the photographer who wants a focal length that falls squarely between 50mm and 85mm. But who wants to fiddle around with exchangeable lenses.... @dpfan32 not sure if you knew but you can get the Sony 6400 as a kit with the 18-135 zoom instead of the the 16-50. This new capability will vastly increase the photographerâs success rate when shooting animals in the wild or beloved pets at home â situations where accurate focus positioning has previously been a challenge. Alternatively, 120fps high-speed shooting of Full HD video can be used to create high-quality slow-motion footage in post-production. Which is another way of saying that they haven't had the best start in life, and haven't really got any better. umm it was dpr in the latest comparison between fuji and sony midsize models where we were reminded of sonyys weaks poorly orginized menu, ok??? They've secured their position in FF MILC in preparation for Canon and Nikon's FF MILC releases. Complaining about the flip-up screen being in the way of your hot-shoe mic is about the whiniest thing I’ve thing I’ve ever read. That's a great lens: compact, fast, sharp. Animal Eye AF will be even cooler.-Now that this camera rocks burst-mode action tracking, Sony's ancient UHS-1 SD card interface is even more egregious. Also tried Sony A7ii and end up buying A7ii as the price was the same as with Sony 6400 and for sure in my book A7ii is better camera(minus AF of course). [ 1 ] S-Gamut3.Cine/S-log3Â [ 2 ] Colour Grading Â Â S-Log2 and S-Log3 are premised on processing pictures. The new processor seems to give much better range of light and dark areas, sort of lightening the dark areas and darkening the bright ones. It comes as a kit with the small and weightless do-eve… We've broken down the differences and how they compare to their rivals. Both are perfectly good kit zooms. In conjunction with the image-processing engine, this helps achieve superior image resolution and more natural depiction of textures. Only used A6300 so I may be completely off track, but maybe setting up back button focusing so that half-press shutter would not change focus? It looks like from the one button AF/M that shooting difficult AF shots will be easier than I thought. The Sony A6400’s APS-C size CMOS sensor achieves an overall DxOMark score of 83 points, which puts it on the same level as slightly older APS-C models, such as the Nikon D7100 and the Samsung NX1. Simply slide your finger across the monitor until you find the desired point you want to focus on. Why the ubiquity of this 18-135/18-150 zoom range? Yes some drainage might occure, but it is not that your battery is empty after say a week of doing nothing, it might have dropped from 100 to say 98%. Well, the real liability of *all* current camera manufacturers is that they are not "software companies". It should be editable (implicitly!) I went for "Clear" jpeg setting, turning up the saturation +2 contrast +1 and sharpness -2 + WB shift of two steps to the right then one down on the auto WB.

The user experience of some cameras is a bit like having tinnitus, in that respect. The CIPA rating is 410 shots for the A6400 compared to 400 for the A6300, so I would expect the battery life to be more or less the same. Although it sports the same 24MP sensor as the A6300, as well as the same 4K and 1080p slow-motion recording capabilities, it … (movie) Auto Slow Shutter (movie) Initial Focus Mag. I am using the a6400 as a second body to my A9 to get even more reach (1200 mm with 100-400 mm + 2x telconverter) So there's that. The rear camera (or cameras) on an iPhone has all the latest bells and whistles, but how do you use them to capture a selfie or record a video of yourself? I write about this utterly cr@ppy state of camera FW/SW every now and then, and one response that I get most of the time is "but these are cameras, their primary function is taking images!" As we continue to test Nikon's update of its multimedia full-framer, we've added more of our findings so far on image quality, dynamic range and video quality. MIOPS has announced Flex, a new smart camera gadget designed to make it easy and simple to capture lightning strikes, action images, holy grail timelapse videos and much more. It's a matter of managing your resources, putting those limited resources towards specific goals at specific times. So practically getting a 24mm and a 135mm with an amazing body! I'd get the body-only at Adorama, at Amazon, at B&H or at Crutchfield. We make the originals available for private users to download to their own machines for personal examination or printing (in conjunction with this review), we do so in good faith, please don't abuse it. On top of that, Canon EF-M lenses are is totally incompatible with Canon RF lenses, so there is zero cross-compatibility with Canon's own APS-C and FF mirrorless lenses. Sony's 'Real-Time' autofocus promises to track almost anything you throw at it, but it's not enabled by default. The Sigma trio of 16mm, 30mm and 56mm f/1.4 lenses are stupid sharp and affordable. To be honest it's equally disappointing that Sony didn't give IBIS to a $1000 camera, A6400 is not a cheap camera at all. bigger. In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing around $2000 and recommended the best. The front and top of the camera's body use a light but highly rigid magnesium alloy for excellent durability. I'll correct that mistake immediately. This can then be used to create time-lapse movies on a PC using the Viewer app from the Imaging EdgeTM desktop applications. Sigma 30mm 1.4 was disappointment: barrel distortion. One curiosity is if this button works with the 18-135 Sony lens as there is the AF/Manual button on the lens. Sony A6400 has a 24.0MP APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm ) sized CMOS sensor and features Bionz X processor. Owning both Fujis and Sonys, I can’t say I’m enjoying both.That said, the Fuji has much better tactile controls. When subjects are in motion, AF points densely positioned around the subject are activated for accurate tracking. Or are professional videographers more narcisistic than consumers? Wish I never spent tue money. Once I bought the Leica Q I discovered how nice to use a camera can be and that minute, I ceased to like the 6000 at all (even though I know the 6000 can take great pics). I own the 18-135, but I have used the 18-105. So Sony don't charge anything to other lens manufacturers, so they can develop and sell E-mount lenses? Seems like a sound strategy to me. If moving over to an A7 design style with central EVF, it will be named an A7000. Of course I know that. .. because a bad design is always a bad design? So don't belittle people's desire to capture themselves in photos. We use it mostly on a tripod with the 18-135 or the 1018 to shoot large scale interiors (eg. At least two button presses are required to cancel tracking or initiate tracking because it automatically changes to tracking in Continuous Focus mode. It has a durable, but small body, with good ergonomics for the most part. Will it be the same with the A6400? Such a camera would be priced around £1400 and could justify an expensive and fast (perhaps G branded) 16-50 lens. @captura - As for attracting APS-C mirrorless users so they can eventually move up to FF mirrorless, that doesn't work with Canon mirrorless. The ISO Invariance and Exposure Latitude jpeg previews of the raw files are processed differently than from other cameras. Sony was much better. Unfortunately though tracking AF can't compete with the A6400. A good focusing system is not the only thing that makes a better camera. Sturdy, durable construction for robust operation. The m4/3 and the APS sigma 16mm, 30mm and 60mm f/2.8 lenses are the exact same lenses, they just have different mounts. The words 'Real-Time' don't even appear in the camera's menu. What Sony makes me go through instead is mind-boggling. Can someone tell me if the A6400 has phase detection AF, which would enable its use with the TechArt Pro autofocus adapter? I can't recall ever getting less than 400 on any battery. greetings. As I explain more thoroughly in my review of the Sony A6400, you can really use AF-C as the default focus mode on the Sony A6400 but it is helpful to switch to AF-S in low light or if you need to get precise focus with focus magnification. now i hope to get one better telephoto E-lens to replace it to restore my peace. It's not DP's fault. Customized Sony A6400 controls. It measures 4.75 x 2.75 x 2 inches and weighs 14.3 ounces with the battery and card. Maybe that is this lens? Add a lens and that number goes up, such as the 12-ounce 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 7.5x zoom … AF-S: With a half-press of the shutter button, the Sony A6400 will focus only once. They could have done better....... for years now. It will continue to track the face once it moves outside that spot, yes.
