Update 1/17 @ 2:22 PM: Pre-orders are now open at both Amazon or B&H.

Sony has long been the king of the mirrorless camera industry. From the company’s highly-rated Alpha A7 line to the more budget-friendly prosumer a6xxx line, Sony has reigned king for the past few years. Now, the Sony just announced its a6400 camera with real-time eye autofocus and tracking, the “world’s fastest autofocus,” and even a flip-up screen, something we’ve yet to see on anything but Sony’s RX lineup of cameras.

The a6400 features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and the company’s acclaimed autofocusing technology. Pair that with the first flip-up touchscreen Sony has put on its mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, stellar 4K recording, and amazing autofocus, and the a6400 is going to be the camera to beat.
