Features

30x zoom lens with ZEISS® quality built in

The results of over 150 years of ZEISS® expertise in high-precision optics is perfectly clear: this 24–720 mm lens renders portrait, close-up, and landscape images in natural glory from every perspective, with vivid sharpness and contrast intact. ZEISS® T* multilayer, anti-reflective coating effectively eliminates surface ghosting and flare.

Exmor R® CMOS sensor for extra sensitivity

The more light that strikes a sensor, the more brilliant the resulting image. So the Exmor R® CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels uses back-illuminated design to let four times more light in than more conventional sensors. It's twice as sensitive to light, and even features Sony Column A/D Conversion technology to reduce image noise.

BIONZ X™ for more detail and less noise

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 reproduces realistic images with truer colors and textures, and with exceptional precision in real time.

OLED Tru-Finder™ improves the view

The high-contrast OLED Tru-Finder is far brighter than more conventional electronic viewfinders; now even more compact; displays real-time preview and shooting information, so what you see on-screen is exactly what you get in your shot; retractable for portability, safety, and convenience.

180-degree tiltable LCD monitor for easy framing

The high-resolution LCD on the camera back tilts up to 180 degrees. So when you're in front of the camera, you can easily check framing on the LCD before taking a selfie, for example. This flexibility also lets you comfortably maintain a stress-free posture while framing scenes you want to shoot from low angles.

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 Imaging Edge 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.

Assign frequently used functions (Focus Mode, White Balance, Picture Effect, etc.) to customizable buttons and keys for easier, quicker access while shooting. For example, assign up to 12 functions to the Function button, press it, choose a function, and adjust function parameters using the control ring or rear control wheel.
