Sony A6400 Sensor Review and Test Results

By on

Sony A6400 sensor review and test results published by DxOMark. According to test results the Sony A6400 achieved an overall score of 83.

This score simply puts the camera on the same level as slightly older APS-C models, such as the Nikon D7100 and the Samsung NX1. 

On the other hand this is only two points behind the Sony A6400 mirrorless camera. Check out the comparison tables below as well as DxOMark conclusion.

Key specifications:

  • 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor
  • Hybrid AF with contrast-detection and phase-detection AF with 425 points
  • BIONZ X processor
  • Native ISO 100-32,000 (expandable to ISO 102,400)
  • Up to 11fps shooting with continuous AF
  • 4K video up to 30fps and 1080p up to 120fps
  • Single SD card slot (with UHS-I support)

Dxomark tested the A6400 sensor and here is the conclusion :

Anyone comparing the Sony A6300 and A6400 will find the results intriguing. Although the two models share a similar sensor resolution (pixel count) and the overall results are very close, the measurements are not identical.

Despite its slightly higher noise floor over the A6300, the new A6400 sensor performs well, combining a wide dynamic range over a highly useful range of ISO sensitivity settings and excellent low-light ISO capabilities. Although that directly impacts the color depth, the A6400 remains capable of delivering extremely pleasing images. Combine those attributes with the new AF system, 11fps continuous shooting, and a relatively affordable price, and you have a very enticing camera for sports and action photographers on a budget.
