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

Multi interface shoe

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.

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 PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC-enabled 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

Not only do these apps give you greater functionality — they are the ultimate means of personalizing your camera to fulfil your photographic aims. 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, to relive the fun that's been captured in the footage, use Sony PlayMemories Home software to recall journeys, wherever on Earth you shot them on camera. 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
