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.
Sony Alpha a6400 Sample Images
I’ve included the core exposure settings in the caption of each image. These were all taken with the Sony 18-135mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 E-Mount lens, which I’ve been testing out at the same time.
