24.3 MP APS-C Exmor™ CMOS sensor
Gapless on-chip micro lenses produce optimised light gathering and minimal noise.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Record movies in Full HD detail
Press the MOVIE button to record films notable for their sharpness and lack of visual noise—in your choice of 60p/50p, 60i/50i or 24p/25p2. 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.

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.

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.

Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity
Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity make it simple to transfer photos or movies to NFC-compatible televisions, as well as Android smartphones or tablets — no complicated setup required.
