The NEW Sony A6400 does not make sense!

by birtanpublished on August 16, 2020

Yo what's up guys its audits from tech devoted and it is currently do in the a.m. right now I was working on a college assignment and then I took a two minute break I went on Twitter and this is the first tweet that I see so Sony just announced a brand new camera at

That moment when I read the tweet I knew I had to stop everything and find out what was going on so turns out apparently Sony had an event today I think in San Diego where they announced firstly a couple of updates for their

Sony full-frame cameras boring stuff and then secondly they announced this new camera called the Sony a 64 hundred so I went on YouTube check my subscriptions to see if the embargo was lifted yet and if anybody had already published their

Reviews and as I expected there were reviews out already so I just een published a review of this camera it is an almost 20 minute video I just finished watching it and I have formed some opinions so I want to talk about it

Because I think that this camera is is in a very interesting place it's it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me so I want you guys to watch this video completely and let me know in the comments your thoughts let's strike a

Discussion by the way if I look sleepy it is because I am so please bear with me but yeah I have written down a couple of notes so I'm gonna like look back and forth and talk to you guys about it so

This camera is 6400 as you may have already will tell by the name it's supposed to replace all the cameras before it so that includes the a 5100 a 6000 and a 6300 which is the camera that I am

Currently shooting on so the main highlight or the main feature of this camera that Sony's marketing is that it has a flip up screen yeah that sounds absolutely amazing it sounded absolutely amazing the first time i heard i justine

Mention it in her video but then as the video progressed she shows you that when you put a mic on top a shotgun mic on top the microphone actually blocks the LCD and you basically cannot really see anything well you can't see something

But then it kind of defeats the purpose of a flip up screen now what's even more stupid is that she goes on to suggest that you use a rig and get like a different mount for the microphone so that the mic doesn't get in the way of

The flip up screen or so that the mic doesn't block the LCD and that way you can see the LCD completely now I don't want to call out I sistine I'm pretty sure this was a solution suggested by Sony itself but either way it sounds

Very stupid I mean it is counterproductive why would I want to spend extra money to make my rig bigger I mean this is supposed to be a vlogging camera right I mean it's supposed to be as you know small as it can be in fact I

Think you can even like just go out and spend the money to get a 7 inch monitor instead of like a rig I mean I don't really see the point of getting a rig and making your whole you whole set up even bigger than it already is so it's

Kind of stupid in my opinion like Sony why could you not have just flipped the screen sideways I don't understand if somebody can give me an explanation in the comments I really want to know just help me out of the comments

So that's about the flip up screen kind of a miss in my opinion not really a hit apart from that a couple of other new features include enhanced autofocus so this time with a 6400 it has IATA focus that works on animals so sony is also

Targeting the cat video producers with this camera I mean if it doesn't work out for bloggers at least they have the cat video producers I mean they can't rely on them to you know make this camera hit no okay

It also has a real-time i autofocus in real-time tracking some assuming that basically means overall better autofocus able to be honest that is not really my concern auto focused on this camera was already really really good on all the

A6000 lineup of cameras the autofocus was already good so this is honestly not that big of an improvement apart from that there's one difference that i knowes noticed physically and that is that the dial 1 and dial 2 basically the

Mr1 and memory equal 2 modes have been removed from the dial instead that has been replaced with one mr button and 1s and q button which i'm assuming means slow and quick that basically allows you to I think switch between 120 fps and

Regular 24 or 30 fps so I guess that's ok I mean as long as we have a decent replacement as it's fine I'm not really complaining apart from that we now have a time-lapse mode built into the camera and the

Recording limit the 29 minute recording limit has also been taken off now both of the features that I just mentioned could have already been achieved earlier on the older cameras not directly but like there were you know ways to get the

Time-lapse F for free hand to take out the recording limit from your camera in fact I made a dedicated video about this that you can watch by editing the car door signal the link in the description so I don't really look at these as new

New features because as I said you could have like found a workaround to it already it's not really a new feature apart from that there is a new 4k HDR hlg thing I think it basically from what I understand it basically gives you an

Even more advanced HDR video so I guess that means more flexibility at least theoretically speaking then you have an option to capture still photos from your video like capture a screenshot from the top like a thumbnail kind of a thing

Like an 8 megapixel thumbnail from the video definitely a neat little feature saves a couple of extra steps especially for YouTube videos and stuff like that and then apart from that sony also claims that this camera is 1.8 times

Faster than the a 6300 that is something I'm excited about because the 6300 trust me it's not really a very fast camera at least my unit in it's rather slow in fact it's pretty slow and not that responsive so I'm happy to hear about

You know the whole 1.8 X faster thing and then the single feature that caught my attention the most is the fact that this camera now has touchscreen so what that means is basically this camera a 6400 is in a 6300 it has okay it has 120

Fps it has everything that the 6300 has plus a touch screen or you could look at it this way it is an a 6500 without inbuilt image stabilization now the a 6400 this the new camera comes in at I think 900 or $800 body only whereas the

A 6300 comes in at I think around the same price but with a lens and a couple of other accessories so you could either save a couple of hundred dollars or save some money and get the a 6300 or spend a little more and get the a 6500 in fact

What I'm excited about the most and I mean super super super excited is the fact that they 6300 will go down even more in price maybe even like 700 750 dollars new I don't know if that happens it's gonna be like really really

Game-changing I think that is gonna be like the cheapest 4k aps-c camera I mean it already is the cheapest or I think the Canon 50 is the cheapest 4k aps-c camera but then that thing has a crop so I mean

It's not really that great so either way what I'm trying to say is the 6300 is gonna go down in price and that's the most exciting bit according to me so in the end all I'm trying to say is this camera is weird it doesn't make a whole

Lot of sense to me I don't understand why Sony announced it it's basically any 6300 with a flip screen and that screen and the flip screen as I already said I don't even consider it like I don't want a flip screen that is being blocked by a

Freaking microphone but then yeah as I said the upside of this the advantage of this is that the a 6300 will probably go down and priced even know which is obviously a good thing for the end consumer so what do you guys think of

The sony 6400 I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments again as for me I think it's a beard camera doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me so yeah that's about it for this one if you liked it give it a like if you did not

Vote it down let me know in the comments why I didn't like it if you new around here be sure to check out all the a 6300 content that I've produced in the past on this channel I have a review I have loads of videos about tips and tricks

And all that good stuff so yeah it's been suraj thanks so much for watching take it easy and stay
