Both camera can record 4K videos at 30p.  But, Canon is limited to CDAF when you recording 4K videos whereas with Sony you will be getting 455 Hybrid AF support all the time.

Canon 200D II of course focuses much faster than Sony A6400 at Full HD Video mode, but just opposite  to that when we switch to 4K mode the

No recording limit in Video recording when you are using the Sony A6400 camera. With Canon 200D II you have 29min 59 sec recording limit.

Digital IS – Canon 200D II camera does have Digital IS inside it and it do help sometime when you are walking and vlogging. BTW, Sony A6400 doesn’t have any kind of built-in IS. So you have to relay in IS Lenses.

With  3975 AF points the Canon 200D II features more Dense AF system compared to Sony. Sony A6400 limited to 455 AF points only.

To simplify AF points and make it user selectable Canon divided AF points into 143 AF zones. So, comparatively Canon 200D II will perform better compared to Sony with more dense AF point network.

Available AF Point in Viewfinder mode 9 Point 455 AF Points

Canon 200D II features optical viewfinder and Sony A6400 electronic, selection of type viewfinder depends personal test. BTW, one slight advantage we have with Sony is we will be getting 455 AF points AF support that they do wish to offers us in Live view, video as well as viewfinder mode. Btw with Canon will offer you only 9 point AF when you will be using optical viewfinder (as you know that phase AF module of DSLR camera gets activated when you use the optical viewfinder).

So at the end, in these two model if I have to work on viewfinder mode I will choose Sony A6400 instead of Canon 200D II.
