I’ve lately been out shooting with the new Sony a6400 mirrorless camera, the latest in the smaller APS-C cropped mirrorless cameras in the Sony Alpha range (they also have full-frame cameras in the Alpha range, such as the a7r III). I’ve spent quite a bit of time with various cameras in the Sony Alpha range, including both their smaller APS-C sensor cameras and full-frame ones like the a7r III and a7 III. If you’ve used any of those cameras, the a6400 will feel instantly familiar.

It has a 24.2 MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor and Sony’s BIONZ X onboard image processor. It looks and feels much like the other APS-C sensor cameras in the Alpha range and has essentially the same controls, layout, and menu system.

I’ll be posting separately a detailed hands-on review and a more expansive set of sample images I’ve shot with the a6400. I’ve also posted side-by-side photos shot across the entire spectrum of the a6400’s available ISO range from 100 through 102400 as well a collection of high ISO images.

What I’m focusing on here is providing a larger collection of sample images I’ve taken with the Sony a6400 in the hope it provides a sense of how the camera performs under real-world shooting conditions. So this post is designed to go alongside the detailed review.
