  • BIONZ X™ processor

    Enhanced processing engine handles enormous amounts of sensor data to allow very high-speed shooting of superb, low-noise images.

  • 79-point phase-detection AF system

    Newly developed AF system with 15 cross sensors for accurate, non-stop autofocusing - effective with Viewfinder or live view on LCD.

  • Proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology

    Sony’s unique design replaces a DSLR moving mirror with a fixed translucent mirror, which enables ultra-fast shooting with continuous use of accurate phase detection AF.

  • 12fps with AF tracking

    Capture fast-moving action with razor-sharp tracking, at up to 12fps (approx. maximum speed with Continuous AF mode). Shoot 60 frames per burst, when quality set to ‘FINE’ and image size set to ‘L.’

  • Quick AF Full HD movie

    Shoot 1920x1080 video with full-time AF tracking of moving subjects: now with 60p/24p progressive shooting for cinematic results.

  • Creative Full HD movie functions

    Enjoy sharp, accurate autofocusing with full-time AF; PASM exposure modes offer total creative control.

  • AF Range Control

    Locks autofocusing to a specified range of distance from the camera for sharp results, even if the target is obscured momentarily by another passing object.

  • Wide sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600

    High maximum sensitivity allows natural, low-noise images, even in low light: expansion mode extends sensitivity down to ISO 50.

  • 3-way tiltable LCD screen

    Freely-adjustable high resolution (1,228k dot) LCD with WhiteMagic technology for clear viewing, even under direct sunlight.

  • XGA OLED TruFinder™

    Precision electronic viewfinder with high contrast and 100% frame coverage for accurate framing, focusing and shot review.

  • High-resolution information display

    Select from a choice of Graphic Display, Display All Info, No Disp. Info, Histogram or Digital Level Gauge display options.

  • Clear Image Zoom

    Digitally zooms centre portion of image up to 2x with nearly imperceptible degradation, virtually doubling your zooming range.

  • Face Detection with Face Registration

    Recognizes up to 8 faces in a scene, optimizing optimum exposure, white balance, flash and other settings for beautiful portraits.

  • Expanded Flexible Spot

    If the active AF point begins to lose track of your subject, one of 8 surrounding AF points instantly activates for continuous, accurate tracking of your moving subject.

  • Enhanced AF area modes

    Lock-on AF, which optimizes target frame size and ensures use of the optimal AF point, is now available as a focus area mode. You can choose the initial AF point for tracking from the Wide, Zone, Center, Flexible Spot or Expanded Flexible Spot AF area mode.

  • 5-step tracking adjustment

    AF tracking duration is adjustable in 5 steps, with low settings prioritizing stability and high settings prioritizing speed (ideal when shooting various subjects at different distances, for example). Three settings are also available when shooting movies.

  • Eye AF

    Captures faces in sharp focus, even when your subject is partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field.

  • Leading image technologies

    Detail reproduction technology minimizes emphasized outlines to produce more realistic images and finer details. Diffraction-reducing technology corrects blurred details to realize finer detail even at small aperture (large F-number) settings.

  • Area-specific noise reduction

    Along with detail reproduction technology, effectively suppresses noise for clearer, more finely detailed images even at high sensitivity settings.

  • Enhanced in-body image stabilization

    Effective image stabilization for any compatible lens, throughout the entire focal length range. Helps stabilize the viewfinder image while the shutter button is halfway pressed.

  • Focus Magnifier and Peaking function

    Magnify your image or movie in the high-resolution viewfinder for manual fine-tuning of the focus, or use Peaking to colorize the most sharply-focused areas of your image for quick confirmation.
