BIONZ X for faster image processing
The BIONZ X™ image processing engine reproduces texture and detail in real time—for remarkably realistic images with rich tonal gradations and a natural appearance. Visual noise is nearly imperceptible, thanks to advanced area-specific noise reduction. Detail reproduction technology delivers fine textures, and diffraction-reducing technology optimizes the performance of any lens.
Record movies in Full HD detail
Press the MOVIE button to record films that are notable for their sharpness and lack of visual noise—in your choice of 60p, 60i, or 24p. Improved Fast Hybrid AF provides remarkably fast and accurate autofocusing and tracking. P/A/S/M modes give you control over how the image looks, and Clear Image Zoom lets you zoom with extra clarity.
Fast Hybrid AF captures with clarity
Shoot with unparalleled precision, thanks to advanced Fast Hybrid AF. Improved phase-detection and contrast-detection capabilities achieve autofocus in 0.07 seconds. Advanced features include faster data reading from the image sensor, higher-speed BIONZ
X™ data processing, more advanced AF algorithms, and optimized control of the lens drive.
Track fast-moving subjects with 179 AF points
The Fast Hybrid AF system has 179 accurate phase-detection AF points, covering nearly the entire image area. They enhance subject tracking and the capture of fast-moving subjects, and improve scene recognition as well as subject size detection. Combined with 25 high-speed, high-precision contrast-detection AF points, you can capture with confidence.
6fps continuous shooting with AF tracking
Capture the decisive moment, even when your subject is speeding along. 6fps continuous shooting with superior AF tracking makes the most of the superb tracking capability of the 179 phase-detection AF points, and accurately tracks your subject—anywhere on the screen. Continuous shooting in high-speed situations achieves crispness and clarity.
Eye AF puts faces in focus
Show off your subject’s best side, with extremely accurate Eye AF. Even when capturing someone partially turned away from the camera using a shallow depth of field, it ensures that their face will be in sharp focus. A green frame appears over the prioritized eye to let you know that focus has been achieved, and you’re ready to shoot.
Built-in pop-up flash for expanded exposures
The a built-in pop-up flash (GN4; ISO 100・m) is useful for shooting in low light, capturing subjects in night landscapes (Slow Sync), and shooting portraits in backlit conditions (Daylight Flash). For the portrait-oriented, it can add a beautiful catch-light to a subject’s eyes. Rear Sync mode makes it possible to capture the path of a moving subject in a natural manner.
