Sony announced the A6400 APS-C format mirrorless camera only in 2019, but there's already two newer models available – the A6100 and the A6600. Meaning, if you shop around, you can get the A6400 for much lesser than its launch price of AU$1,499.

Since then, though, Sony Australia has cheekily increased the RRP of the A6400 to AU$1,799 but you don't need to spend that much on snagging yourself one of the best cameras for vlogging.

Aussie retailer CameraPro has the body only listed at just AU$1,259 – a very sweet 30% discount on Sony's current price tag.

It's our top choice for the best camera for vlogging and was the second-highest selling mirrorless model in Japan in June last year. It's a feature-packed snapper with support for S-log3 and S-log2, a flip-up 16:9 rear touch display and, of course, Sony's superb autofocus tracking. So grab this compact mirrorless marvel now and save AU$540.

What makes the Sony A6400 one of the best APS-C mirrorless cameras around is its superb video quality. While its stills prowess is great, its 4K video capture is even better, recorded as downsampled 6K footage. And its 3-inch touchscreen flips up a full 180 degrees to become a forward-facing display – perfect for vloggers.

We don't need to tell you how good Sony's eye autofocus is – it's been tried and tested innumerable times and performs brilliantly here as well, even if you're shooting single-handed.

For those keen on post-production, the editing formats of HLG  and S-Log are onboard, as is an HDMI output if you're planning on using an external recorder.

With lockdown laws now easing, we're now allowed to go out and about, perhaps armed with a great camera. So if you've found yourself in need of a new snapper, you can't go wrong with the Sony A6400 – not at this great price.

Her passion for photography started when she was wandering the wilds of India studying monkeys (yes, life took a sharp turn somewhere along the way) and is entirely self-taught. That puts her in the unique position of understanding what a beginner or enthusiast is looking for in a camera or lens, and writes to help those like her on their path to developing their skills or finding the best gear. While she experiments with quite a few genres of photography, her main area of interest is nature photography – wildlife, landscapes and macro. She still prefers an optical viewfinder but is utterly fascinated with what mirrorless technology has been able to achieve.
