Sony updates A6400 with Animal Eye AF

Sony A6400 review

Sony has released firmware version 2.0 for the A6400, which adds its Real-time Eye AF for animals functionality.

The Animal Eye AF mode, which has been introduced to the Sony Alpha 7 series and other cameras previously, employs the company’s AI algorithm to process colour and recognise objects. It then measures subject distance and patterns to ensure accuracy in focus.

Firmware version 2.0 for the Sony A6400 also lets you track human eye movements. Users can half-press the shutter button when shooting stills or videoing humans to trigger the camera’s AI, which then recognises a person’s face and eye position and monitors both in real time.

It’s worth noting that the A6400 cannot detect both human and animal eyes simultaneously.

Other improvements with the Sony A6400 firmware update include the opportunity to use the camera remotely with the wireless remote commander RMT-P1BT (sold separately).
