A Honest Sony A6400 Review By a Photographer

Sony A6400 is literally successor Sony A6300 and a perfect vlogging camera from Sony. At the same time all  the camera features same IMX 271 sensor as we have in Sony A6100 as well as high-end Sony A6500, so more or less they will give out the same image quality. But, MarkusPix talks about how Sony trimmed down the quality of instant review picture of Sony A6400 camera. And due to low quality of review image he’s not able to judge the picture is in focus or not.

Olympus E-M5 III vs Sony A6400

Let’s talk about the specification comparison between the Sony A6400 camera and the Olympus E-M5 III camera. ow before we begin let me tell you that we ony do carry a large sensor inside it. If, you are someone who mainly shoots still images only. Then without moving into details my suggestion is you should buy the Sony A6400 with IMX 271 APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor.

With the Sony 24 MP sensor you will be getting more more bit depth, more dynamic range, better color output and more clean low-light images when paired with bright aperture lenses.

Sensor Image stabilization missing inside Sony A6400

The selling point of Olympus apart from DCI 4k is built-in image stabilization. The camera features 5.5 Stops of butil-in image stabilization system which can be further enhanced upto 6.5 stops when paired with the OSS lenses. With Sony you have to depend upon broad ISO range and OSS lenses for getting clear shots at night.

Large Sensor area and better ISO range in Sony A6400

The ISO range of the Sony A6400 camera is more than of the new Olympus E-M5 Mark III camera. The expandable ISO range of Sony is 2 stops more than of the Oly. More or less we are also getting larger sensor are with Sony APS-C sensor. So, be assured you will get better low-light performance with the Sony A6400.

DCI vs UHD Despite of having a smaller sensor the camera is able to grab out DCI 4k videos whereas the Sony A6400 camera records slightly lower resolution UHD 4K videos from a large APS-C sensor.

Limit vs No-Limit: Sony offers unlimited video recording option. with Olympus we do have the traditional 30min video recording limit. So, of course Sony is bit better for longer run.

Canon 90D vs Sony A6400

Design and functionality

We all know that Sony A6400 camera have compact body and it is somehow possible that if you have a habit of holding a DSLR camera in your hand for years you may feel uncomfortable for the first 3 to 4 months.

  • More compact and easy to carry: Design wise the Sony A6400 is an excellent solution for those who love to have a bit more compact system in their hand and it will easily fit into your jacket pocket. At the same time the Sony A6400 with kit lens will remain unnoticed in crowded situations..
  • Weather sealing matters: Canon 90D is a weather sealed camera but the Sony A6400 camera isn’t. So, we have to consider these features too before buying a camera since the image quality is not always everything you want to have from a camera.
  • Sony lenses are costly then of Canon: Lenses Compatibility – Canon 90D is a clear winner, we do get huge range of lenses and Canon EF-S lenses are bit affordable too when we compared them with Sony E-Mount lenses. So, overall getting Sony A6400 with 4 to 5 lenses (landscape, portrait, wide, Zoom and Travel) will be more costly compared to Canon 90D

Image quality

Sony using 24MP CMOS sensor with an extended ISO range of upto 102400 and Canon 90D limited to 51200. So you will be getting one stop better low-light images with Sony A6400 camera compared to Canon 90D.

Canon DPAF vs Sony Hybrid

First few generations of Hybrid sensor were behind Canon DPAF system. But in recent tests we were surprised by the AF performance of Sony A6400 camera. It’s eye tracking is also very effective just like a Sony professional full-frame mirrorless camera.

We don’t want to jump into number of AF zones in Canon vs no of AF points in Sony A6400. Since, Specification wise Canon will sure win with a large margin.

At the end we have to wait for some real world test to find out the best AF performance between the both.

Sensor Canon 90D Sony A6400
Resolution Canon 32.5 MP 24 MP
AF Type DPAF Hybrid
AF points on sensor 5K+ AF Zones 425 + 425 (Phase + Contrast)

 

ISO Sensitivity

Based on the ISO sensitivity matrix, as I have told you earlier Sony will perform 1 stop better than of Canon 90D. At the same time Canon pixel density is high and they are still on CMOS platform, to manage increasing pixel density it always important to upscale their technology.

Based on the low-light performance specification scale Sony is a clear winner.

ISO (Still) Canon 90D Sony A6400
Standard 100-25600 100-32000
Expandable 100-51200 100-102400

 

Continuous Shooting

The AF sensitivity range of Sony AA6400 camera is more compared to Canon and hence working in low-light situation will become easier with Sony A6400.

Undoubtedly Canon have faster image processor, that’s why despite having 32.5MP sensor you are getting the same continuous shooting speed as of Sony A6400 camera.

 Auto Focus Canon 90D Sony A6400
AF Sensitivity Upto – 3EV Upto – 5EV
Continuous Shooting 11 FPS with AF 11 FPS with AF

 

Video capabilities

Best camera for recording videos is of course Sony A6400 camera. The camera does full sensor readout without skipping or mapping and you get crisp and clear 4K output oversampled from 6K with any crop or AF issues.

Canon 90D carry inferior 4K video specs compared to Sony A6400 camera. The Canon 90D features 4k Uncropped/Cropped 29.97 fps.

At uncropped mode Canon 90D camera uses pixel skipping algorithm and then you get a bit inferior quality video compared to a 4K video which comes out through full pixel readout through Sony A6400.

Which Camera you Should Buy Canon 90D or Sony A6400

If you are a DSLR shooter then you should go with Canon 90D camera, since its do have a new 32.5 MP sensor and features a option to use uncropped 4K video mode. So, literally Canon 90D is a first APS-C DSLR camera to that gives you a option to use 4K videos without any cropping issue.  One of the biggest advantage of getting a Canon APS-C camera is the range of lenses you get with the camera.

Sony A6400 is a excellent camera uses 24MP CMOS sensor, if you want to get better video mode since the camera is uses full sensor readout and you get bit better video quality. But again it have a 180 dgree flipy screen so it can be a issue to you if you are a vlogger.

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.
