Hi sifus, I am looking for a camera for travel photography (willing to learn). Mainly on building,scenery, and still human.
Budget <RM4K.
Currently eyeing Sony A6400. Is there a better alternative?

I have iPhone 14 PRO, but i dunno why the result feels a bit off compared to the pics taken using proper camera.

Unless you are heavily into videography, for photography, A6400 is a fantastic camera, the same goes for the older one like A6300, A6000. Don't forget to leave budget for good lenses.

Got myself an A6700 during YL Photo Fair last month to replace A6000, and went to the Sony portrait workshop last week.
Auto focus on A6700 is very good, able to stick to model's eyes on low light condition.

All photos taken via A6700+Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8, pp in lightroom.

Anyone splurged during 11.11 sales?
Lazada has some mad sales for Sony lenses, I caved in and got myself the 35mm F1.4 GM. sweat.gif

The most noticeable sales for me was 20-70 F4 G, 24-70 F2.8 GM II & the 35.
(I think they had only 1-2 units for the 20-70 & 24-70) The 20-70 especially sold out immediately.
I was tempted on the 24-70 if it wasn't for the size & weight

I'm currently in Australia until this Sunday, so the package is still unopened back in Malaysia sweat.gif
The price for the 24-70 F2.8 GM2 in Australia is really attractive. It's around RM7,100, with tax return it'll be around RM6,400-500
