    BIONZ X Processor

    Enhanced processing engine handles enormous amounts of sensor data to allow very high-speed shooting of superb, low-noise images.

    79-point Phase-detection AF System

    Newly developed AF system with 15 cross sensors for accurate, non-stop autofocusing - effective with Viewfinder or live view on LCD.

    Proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology

    Creative Full HD Movie Functions

    Enjoy sharp, accurate autofocusing with full-time AF; PASM exposure modes offer total creative control.

    AF Range Control

    Locks autofocusing to a specified range of distance from the camera for sharp results, even if the target is obscured momentarily by another passing object.

    Wide Sensitivity Range From ISO 100-25600

    High maximum sensitivity allows natural, low-noise images, even in low light: expansion mode extends sensitivity down to ISO 50.

    Clear Image Zoom

    Digitally zooms centre portion of image up to 2x with nearly imperceptible degradation, virtually doubling your zooming range.

    Face Detection With Face Registration

    Recognizes up to 8 faces in a scene, optimizing optimum exposure, white balance, flash and other settings for beautiful portraits.

    Expanded Flexible Spot

    If the active AF point begins to lose track of your subject, one of 8 surrounding AF points instantly activates for continuous, accurate tracking of your moving subject.

    Enhanced AF Area Modes

    Lock-on AF, which optimizes target frame size and ensures use of the optimal AF point, is now available as a focus area mode. You can choose the initial AF point for tracking from the Wide, Zone, Center, Flexible Spot or Expanded Flexible Spot AF area mode.

    5-step Tracking Adjustment

    AF tracking duration is adjustable in 5 steps, with low settings prioritizing stability and high settings prioritizing speed (ideal when shooting various subjects at different distances, for example). Three settings are also available when shooting movies.

    Eye AF

    Captures faces in sharp focus, even when your subject is partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field.

    Leading Image Technologies

    Detail reproduction technology minimizes emphasized outlines to produce more realistic images and finer details. Diffraction-reducing technology corrects blurred details to realize finer detail even at small aperture (large F-number) settings.

    Area-specific Noise Reduction

    Enhanced In-body Image Stabilization

    Effective image stabilization for any compatible lens, throughout the entire focal length range. Helps stabilize the viewfinder image while the shutter button is halfway pressed.

    Focus Magnifier And Peaking Function

    Customizable Function Buttons

    Assign frequently used functions to the customizable buttons of your choice. Easily reassign 11 buttons to activate any of 53 functions for speedier, more intuitive operation.
