30x optical zoom/60x Clear Image zoom for super close-ups

Capture everything from broad landscapes to faraway subjects, thanks to the powerful 24mm* to 720mm zoom range. The camera’s 60x Clear Image zoom feature digitally doubles the magnification of your camera’s optical lens without decreasing pixel count, so you can capture smooth, detailed shots at any distance.

Lock-on autofocus and continuous shooting

Get crystal clear photos that are always in focus. Lock-on autofocus (AF) automatically adjusts the target frame size based on subject characteristics – so you get an in-focus shot no matter what's happening. The lens-style camera also delivers high-speed continuous shooting of up to 10 fps, and detailed images of 20MP, even when the action’s fast.

Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation

Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ technology keeps your image stable even when your hands aren’t. By compensating for the minor hand motions that can cause blurring and distortion, SteadyShot™ ensures brilliant photographic results even in challenging low-light conditions. Switch to SteadyShot™ Active mode for sharp, blur-free movie shooting.

Full HD 60p beauty in motion

Keep your footage smooth and sharp – even when panning and shooting moving subjects – and record 60p movies at the camera's full resolution.

20.4MP Exmor R™ CMOS sensor for detailed images

Bring out the detail in your photos – even when shooting in low-light conditions. A back-illuminated Exmor™ R CMOS sensor has a wide receptive area to allow more light and detail into every frame. Capture the scene in 20.4MP of high-resolution detail for beautiful pictures every time.

BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture

Sony's image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures and details, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing. Together with front-end LSI (large scale integration), that accelerates processing, BIONZ X enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise whether you're shooting photos or movies.

Sony G Lens for a refined level of performance

The Sony G Lens is optimised to perfectly complement the advanced image sensors and processing technology of this lens-style camera. You get the power and control to achieve superior in-focus image quality, as well as beautiful defocused backgrounds (bokeh).

Wi-Fi gives you wireless freedom

Easily transfer movies and more from your camera to your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet by simply connecting to Wi-Fi. Then quickly upload your videos to your favourite websites and social media networks so friends and family can see the action.

Intuitive control with PlayMemories™ Mobile

Turn your smartphone or tablet into a remote commander and enjoy easy camera control, thanks to PlayMemories™ Mobile. A clean user interface gives you simple one-handed operation of all your camera settings - including exposure, shutter release, and zoom – making it ideal for group photos.

Get a different view with versatile lens placement

Enjoy taking photos from different points of view. Set up your lens-style camera in previously tough-to-reach spots, then take control – including zoom, framing, and capture– using your mobile device. Keep a firm grip for versatile shooting with the help of the optional Free Angle Shooting Kit (ADP-FSK1).

Mount the camera on your smartphone/tablet

Turning your smartphone or tablet into a high performance camera is easy: simply mount the lens-style camera on your mobile device and start shooting. Once mounted, your device becomes the camera body: use the touchscreen to capture shots, retouch images, and even share photos with friends and family on Facebook® and Twitter™.

Easy storage, transfers and sharing

Never worry about losing your snaps – your photos are automatically saved to both the lens-style camera and your smartphone or tablet as you take them. Simply install the PlayMemories™ Mobile app to export photos from your camera to your smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi. From there, you’re free to organise, edit, and share with friends and family, or to upload to your favourite social networking site and share with the world.

Superior Auto knows what you’re shooting

There’s no shoot too challenging. Superior Auto mode automatically recognises various types of environments and adjusts camera settings accordingly to optimise every shot. You camera will activate functions such as continuous shooting and Auto HDR when conditions are challenging, so you can capture the shot with ease.

Mount on a tripod for flexible shooting

Shoot long exposures and stunning landscapes with total confidence. Simply mount the lens-style camera on a tripod and get greater stability than you would with handheld shots. Tricky terrain, low-light photography, and group shots all become easier when you connect the lens-style camera to a tripod.

View your photos in TRILUMINOS™ colour

See your photos and videos in rich, natural colour when you share them on the big screen. This lens-style camera supports Sony’s TRILUMINOS colour technology – see your favourite snaps in realistic colour when viewing them on a TV with a TRILUMINOS display. An expanded colour gamut means reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens are displayed beautifully for vivid landscapes. Faces look better, too, thanks to the natural replication of skin tones.

Live-View Remote 2 accessory for multi-camera control

Manage up to five cameras using the optional Live View Remote. Check viewing angles on the wrist-mounted colour monitor with a glance, start/stop recording on five cameras at once and change settings simultaneously on all units. No cables needed, thanks to built-in Wi-Fi.

Multi-ratio aspects for flexible shooting

Make photos that stand out from the crowd with a choice of different aspect ratios. Choose from conventional digital photo shapes like 3:2 and 4:3, as well as 16:9 widescreen or square for still images just the way you want them.
