Capture 20.4 megapixel detail, even in low light

Shoot detail-packed stills and movies, even indoors or in dim light, with the 20.4 effective megapixels Exmor R® CMOS sensor.

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 makes it possible to reproduce realistic images of truer colours and textures with exceptional precision in real time.

Powerful zoom with less to carry

Travel, wildlife and more, everything’s covered by the high-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar® T* lens with powerful 50x optical zoom.

Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

Simply press the shutter button halfway to activate Lock-on AF. It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size, improve tracking performance, and take full advantage of every photo opportunity.

Adjust light and exposure levels manually

Use the P/S/A/M manual modes to control the aperture or shutter speed and play with the creative effects in your photos.

Compose with a realistic view

Easily frame and view your shots and movies on the bright, high resolution 3.0 in (7.5 cm) Xtra Fine LCD screen.

Multi interface shoe

Attach a range of accessories to your camera, like external flashes, studio microphones, and more. The hot shoe powers these fixings to enhance your shooting.

Electronic viewfinder

Take the guesswork out of composing shots. A 201-dot resolution electronic viewfinder gives you a clear, real-time preview with 100% frame coverage – ideal for framing, focusing, and reviewing shots. A built-in eye-sensor automatically switches you between the LCD display and the viewfinder.

Shoot smooth, steady Full HD movies

Film smooth, steady video clips in Full HD 24p, even when you’re walking or zooming, with Optical SteadyShot Active Mode.

Get clear close-ups

A powerful 100x Clear Image Zoom fills the frame, for dramatic close-ups that always stay clear and detail-packed.

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 Play Memories 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.

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.

GPS charts your course

The built-in GPS geotags photos and movies, so you can track your trip's shooting locations precisely. Later, relive the fun captured on the footage using Sony PlayMemories Home software. With Map View mode, the path and images of a journey appear on a trail map.

Focus on the moment

After autofocusing, you can rotate a lens ring to use Direct Manual Focus to make fine adjustments, for fantastic focusing speed, precision, and control for shooting macro and fast-moving subjects.

Shoot high quality pictures quickly

The BIONZ X™ processor is key to high-speed continuous shooting at 10 frames per second and finely detailed image quality.

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 the blurriness that tends to occur in images when shooting handheld or shooting while chasing a subject in action.

Enjoy DSLR-like creative control

Get the shot you want with a manual ring for smooth zoom/focus, jog dial, custom buttons and memory for favourite settings.

Boost your flash photography

Advanced Flash brightens up dim scenes, lighting up subjects who are further away from the camera.

Add artistic picture effects

Add up to 13 different creative effects to stills, movies, and panoramas without having to download and use image-editing software.

Capture full panoramas with movement and faces

Just press the shutter button and sweep the camera for extra-wide panoramas of landscapes, city scenes and packed parties.
