Salted Line Underwater Housings compatible the new Sony Alpha a6400

Seafrogs Salted Line Underwater Camera Housings is a special improved range of light-weight and very durable underwater housings made for the most popular Sony Alpha A6000, A6300 and A6500 cameras and we are happy to inspire more and more Surfing and Scuba Diving photographers, videographers and bloggers to capture and share their best moments.

Today we are very happy to confirm that our existing Salted Line Underwater Housing for Sony Alpha a6000 series is fully compatible with the new Sony Alpha A6400 E-mount camera just announced by Sony in Jan 2019 and hitting the shelves as we speak in Feb-Mar 2019. 

The Alpha A6400 features a 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor with a front-end LSI, which combined with the same BIONZ X image processor found the Alpha A9, A7R III and A7 III sees the A6400 deliver an ISO sensitivity up to 102,400 and processing speeds 1.8x faster than the A6300. Sony also believes color reproduction has been greatly improved. 

 

Sony claims the Alpha A6400 features the world's fastest autofocus at just 0.02 sec, while for the first time in an Alpha camera Sony is introducing Real-Time Eye AF with AI-based subject recognition. This promises to be even more accurate than Sony's current Eye AF system, which now features a right or left eye priority setting in the menu.

 

Not only that, but the A6400 also gets Real-Time AF Tracking with AI-based subject recognition, another first for an Alpha camera.

 

Focusing is based around a 425-point phase-detect system that's supplemented by a further 425 contrast-detect AF points, with 84% coverage of the frame. To partner this advanced AF system, the A6400 can shoot at up to 11fps with both AF and AE (the buffer is 116 JPEG shots). Should you want to shoot silently, you can do so at 8fps. 

 

The body of the Alpha A6400 follows a similar form factor to other A6000-series cameras, with a relatively large hand grip and a reasonable amount of body-mounted controls. It does differ slightly though, with the addition of a flip-out 3.0-inch touchscreen display that rotates outwards 180 degrees. For obvious resons the functionality of the flip-out touchscreen is going to be limited in the Salted Line housing for underwater use, but will still allow for a great deal of excitment and creativity by vloggers and photographers around the world.

 

The Alpha A6400 also features a high-resolution XGA OLED electronic viewfinder, while the magnesium alloy body covers are sealed against dust and moisture.  *
