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.

 

Fast Hybrid AF films with artistic control

Fast Hybrid AF provides extremely accurate focusing and smooth subject tracking, even while shooting movies. You can also adjust AF tracking duration and AF drive speed, for greater artistic control over the films you shoot.

 

Improved Lock-on AF targets your subject

Lock-on AF enhances the tracking of moving subjects by using the optimal? AF point at all?times, and adjusting the target frame size to match your subject’s?characteristics. Thanks to advances in phase-detection AF, it’s now more accurate than ever–so lock-on, and shoot fast-moving targets with precision.

 

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.

 

Works with iMovie and Final Cut Pro X

This product is compatible with Final Cut Pro X and iMovie.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

180º tiltable LCD screen for creative freedom

Enjoy enhanced shooting comfort with a 3” LCD screen that tilts 180º to accommodate shooting at every angle, from low to high and in-between. This flexibility, combined with the camera’s compact mobility, will greatly expand your shooting options.
