    • 30x zoom lens with ZEISS® quality built in
      The results of over 150 years of ZEISS® expertise in high-precision optics is perfectly clear: this 24–720 mm lens renders portrait, close-up, and landscape images in natural glory from every perspective, with vivid sharpness and contrast intact. ZEISS® T* multilayer, anti-reflective coating effectively eliminates surface ghosting and flare
    • Exmor R® CMOS sensor for extra sensitivity
      The more light that strikes a sensor, the more brilliant the resulting image. So the Exmor R® CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels uses back-illuminated design to let four times more light in than more conventional sensors. It's twice as sensitive to light, and even features Sony Column A/D Conversion technology to reduce image noise
    • BIONZ X™ for more detail and less noise
      To transform data from the Exmor R® CMOS sensor into high-resolution images, the BIONZ X™ image processor integrates detail reproduction, diffraction-reducing, and area-specific noise reduction technologies. This combination reproduces realistic images with truer colors and textures, and with exceptional precision in real time
    • OLED Tru-Finder™ improves the view
      The high-contrast OLED Tru-Finder is far brighter than more conventional electronic viewfinders; now even more compact; displays real-time preview and shooting information, so what you see on-screen is exactly what you get in your shot; retractable for portability, safety, and convenience
    • 180-degree tiltable LCD monitor for easy framing
      The high-resolution LCD on the camera back tilts up to 180 degrees. So when you're in front of the camera, you can easily check framing on the LCD before taking a selfie, for example. This flexibility also lets you comfortably maintain a stress-free posture while framing scenes you want to shoot from low angles
    • One-touch remote and one-touch sharing
      One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually
    • More flexible movie formats
      The new XAVC S format captures movies detailing extra-smooth action and high-quality sound with great fidelity to the original sources. Whether you're shooting in XAVC S or high-definition AVCHD, you can simultaneously record the same scene in compressed, Web-friendly MP4 format for convenient sharing
    • Grip take hold
      The camera grip has been ergonomically designed for optimal handling stability at all times
    • Customizable settings for personal control
      Assign frequently used functions (Focus Mode, White Balance, Picture Effect, etc.) to customizable buttons and keys for easier, quicker access while shooting. For example, you can assign 12 functions to the Function button, then press it, choose a function, and adjust function parameters via the rear control wheel
    • P/A/S/M modes for exposure as you like it
      Put your creativity in motion with Programmed AE (P)/Aperture priority (A)/Shutter-speed priority (S)/Manual (M) exposure modes. These modes give you all the flexibility you need to manually control exposure and adjust background blur to capture exactly the image you want
    • Intelligent Active Mode keeps blur away
      Have no fear of handheld movie shooting. Intelligent Active Mode, featuring Sony's advanced frame-analysis technology and 5-axis image stabilization, compensates for camera shake. This mode reduces blurriness in images when shooting handheld or chasing a subject in action
    • PlayMemories Camera Apps add personality
      Enhance your creative expression with PlayMemories Camera Apps, offering a growing range of enjoyable and easy-to-use applications. These apps give you greater functionality and offer the ultimate tools for personalizing your camera to meet your photographic needs. Note: Services availability depends on region
    • Digital level gauge for even framing
      The camera's digital level gauge uses easy-to-read graphics to indicate clearly whether the camera is level and allows fine adjustment of horizontal alignment during shooting. It's useful for avoiding camera roll, making sure your shots look steady and well framed
    • Extra-speedy & precise Fast Intelligent AF
      An improved spatial object detection algorithm realizes a more optimal and accurate lens drive to make AF even faster, for capturing more fleeting moments with ease
