Simply the better camera you are looking for

When you are ready for more, there is a camera waiting for you that is easy to carry but shoots like a pro.

A habit-forming camera for everyday challenges

Sony mirrorless cameras take imaging far beyond the capability of a smartphone. As powerful as a pro camera, but smaller and easy to use, they turn your everyday shots into beautiful movies and photography to both see and feel.

Dramatic images in any environment

Arresting images don't wait for a second chance, especially in challenging light. A Sony mirrorless camera, with far larger image sensor and bright lenses, makes better use of the light you have. Fast focusing and a wider dynamic range can turn difficult into beautiful.

Darkness is no excuse for a bad photo

Dim light, full of emotion, and your smartphone spoils it in a flash! You want a camera that shoots memorable photos in any light. A Sony mirrorless camera has a large image sensor and smart image processor to take sharp, low-noise images even without a flash.

Images made to impress

Our mind selectively focuses to help us concentrate within a complex world. Thanks to the large sensors, you can apply this bokeh technique in your images—selectively presenting your subject in a flattering way that cannot be ignored.

See the world from a different angle

Use a tilting monitor to capture your world from a different perspective. When you are free from a viewfinder or smartphone screen, you can see and do more, with less guess-and-shoot. You will know you got the ideal image the first time.

The secret is sensor size

The image sensor is the true eye of a digital camera, so the larger the sensor, the better your images turn out. With a sensor 10-times, or more, the size of a smartphone sensor, every aspect of your imaging improves — more pixels, better low-light sensitivity, and wider dynamic range. For sharper images, enlargements, and prints every time.

Sensor size and low-light performance

The advantages of a Sony mirrorless camera's much larger sensor are plain to see. A larger sensor produces less noise, more detail, and a more beautiful image—especially when the light is low.

Bokeh (selective focus)

Unlike smartphones, the larger sensor in a Sony mirrorless camera allows for a shallow depth of field—or bokeh—to selectively focus on your subject. The dramatic effect adds depth and expression, especially to close-up images, for professional-looking results.

Note how much better the eye is drawn to the sharply focused portion of the image when it is surrounded by a defocused background.

Images without bokeh can seem merely ordinary, overly mechanical, and less interesting because they lack the photographer's emotional involvement. 

Fast focus locks onto your subject

Pets, children and vehicles of all types do not stay still. The remarkable brain inside Sony mirrorless cameras locks onto moving subjects using multiple focus points, then tracks movement, keeping them ready to shoot the moment you are.

High-speed focus is a key advantage. It instantly locks onto a moving subject and anticipates where it will go next, so you easily stay focused and ready to shoot.

Unlike typical DSLRs, Sony mirrorless cameras have focus points across almost the entire frame, to seek out your subject with both speed (phase detection AF) and accuracy (contrast detection AF).

Eye AF gives you unrivaled portraits by precisely focusing on your subject's eyes—a key to great portraits. For stunning wedding and other photography, no focusing tool is more powerful.

Made for quick and easy sharing

You may be used to sharing photos online with your smartphone and there is no reason to change that. With the one-touch sharing function, these Sony mirrorless cameras make it easy to shoot, transfer to your smart device, and share with your friends.
