Is the a6400 better than the a6000?

Another tempting model is the a6000. Part of the reason it sells so well is because it's cheaper than many of its rivals but it's very much a case that you get what you pay for (it was recognizably stripped-down even for 2014).

The a6400 is better in every respect. It has several generations of AF improvement, revised user interface and touchscreen, vastly better video capabilities (4K vs 1080) and a better viewfinder. It's a higher-end model, as well as being much newer.

However, more fundamentally than any of this, the a6400 will offer better image quality. Partly because it has a more modern sensor, but mainly because in the time between the two cameras' launches Sony has continually worked to improve its JPEG color. And the difference is marked: the a6400's output will simply be more attractive, even before you look closely at the sharpening and noise reduction improvements.
