1.0-type 20.2MP Exmor™ R CMOS Image Sensor
The massive 20.2MP 1.0-type Exmor™ R CMOS sensor captures ultra-high definition images that take full advantage of the camera’s sharp Carl Zeiss lens. A bigger sensor captures more light, resulting in reduced noise levels and smooth, detailed low-light images.
Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar® lens
The F2.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar® T has a wide aperture, which allows more light to enter the lens. The unique T multilayer lens coating gives you sharp, true-colour image reproduction without flare or ‘ghosting’. The wide aperture also enables you to control foreground and background blur levels, so you can be more creative with your photos.
BIONZ X processor
The camera’s BIONZ X image processor enables high-speed, high-precision processing of the information coming from the CMOS sensor. The image processor also helps the camera deliver a wide ISO range that extends up to ISO 25600, for incredible detail all the way through to the highest sensitivity setting.
XGA OLED Tru-Finder™
With 100% frame coverage, wide viewing angle (33.1˚) and high eyepoint (23.3mm), the OLED Tru-Finder™ shows you real-time effects before you press the shutter. The hi-res, hi-contrast OLED viewfinder can display a range of information including exposure levels, brightness, white balance, histogram, shooting information and face recognition.
Full HD 1080/60p video
The camera’s high-resolution sensor and the ability to shoot at a 24p True Cinema frame rate, gives you full creative control of your movies. And with AVCHD Progressive 2.0 supporting 60p (NTSC) recording, you’ll be able to capture ultra-smooth, visually stunning Full HD video.
Built-in NFC and Wi-Fi
Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC let you make a quick, instant connection between the camera and your smartphone or tablet. Once you’ve installed the free PlayMemories Mobile app on your smartphone, you’re ready to wirelessly share the pictures taken on your camera. You can also use the app to remotely control the camera shutter from your mobile.
Advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) technology
AA lens technology maximises portability without sacrificing imaging power. The lens combines four aspherical elements with one ED glass element to deliver high-precision shots and breathtaking rendering without the bulky design usually associated with similar DSLR lenses.
Direct Drive SSM
The Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) system minimises the distance the lens has to travel when focusing. In doing so, it shortens the overall focus time to enable smooth, high-speed AF across the entire telephoto range.
