Superior Carl Zeiss Optics
Open your outlook across a vast new range
A large F2.8 maximum aperture throughout an expansive 24-200mm zoom range gives you ample opportunity to express your vision. Make a subject stand out -- manipulate depth of field to defocus backgrounds for creative effect, as great photographers do. The impeccable Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens' advanced, compact fixed-lens design optimizes image quality consistently from edge to edge.
More room to zoom at will
Close-up shooting is seamless. No switching to macro mode is needed. Zoom in all the way up to extreme telephoto on a subject as near as 30cm away. The built-in lens makes it more convenient for you to take impressive shots throughout a big range.
More capability now more compact
An advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) reduces diameter and length, and maintains high resolution even at image edges. A new Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) stops lens movement with spot-on precision. Far-reaching optical flexibility minimizes mechanical dimensions. Precise alignment of the image sensor and lens also perfectly combines diminutive form and outsized performance.
Sophisticated Image Sensor
Superior sensitivity makes a clear difference
Containing back-illuminated technology and approximately 4x larger light-sensitive area that other compact DSC (digital still cameras) can't match, Sony's 20.2-megapixel 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor harnesses light and reduces image noise very efficiently. This, along with high settings of a wide ISO range, allow even photos of dimly lit scenes to look incredibly clear.
New-generation image processing engine, BIONZ X, leads a new world
The groundbreaking new BIONZ X image processing engine not only maximizes picture quality in ways that only a seamlessly unified body and lens design can realize -- it also faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, with peerless high-speed processing. The experience of shooting and viewing stills and movies expands your senses by depicting true realism with richer tonal gradations and lower image noise than was previously possible. With such a high magnitude of power ready for every situation, BIONZ X naturally leads toward better ways to witness the world in full glory.
Detail reproduction technology
By minimizing digital artifacts that tend to overemphasize hard outlines and rough edges when pictures are reproduced, detail reproduction technology makes images noticeably more lifelike, clean and natural-looking in every detail, texture and dimension.
This maintains outstanding clarity by applying aperture-appropriate filter processing to suppress and compensate for diffraction -- a phenomenon that can otherwise limit photographic resolution and cause points of light to appear blurred, especially in images that have been shot using a small aperture (large F-number) setting.
Improved area-specific noise reduction
Now, noise reduction is individually adjusted based on imaging pattern variations, for superior clarity and finer details throughout even images shot in low light.
Quick focusing even at telephoto range
High-speed AF is remarkably smooth thanks to the Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) with precision-engineered focusing stop positions designed to minimize focusing lens travel distance, which shortens focusing time.
Eye AF on the soul of the subject
Applying advanced detection technology, this new Eye AF function detects and focuses on a subject's eye, even if the subject is facing or looking slightly away from the camera. Then, a blinking green frame appears on that eye in the viewfinder image to indicate the point of focus for the upcoming shot.
More flexible focus area selection
Choose among three concentric Flexible Spot frames for greater focusing versatility and precision than other cameras' fixed-focus spot frame systems can provide.
Lock-on AF tracks with smart precision
Just press the shutter button halfway to activate Lock-on AF. It precisely focuses even on moving subjects by continuously adjusting target frame size based on its recognition of subject characteristics. You can easily stay focused on the main action because this object tracking innovation optimizes autofocus timing. Even when a subject goes out of frame temporarily, tracking resumes at the moment that it is recaptured after re-entering the frame.
