As the leading image sensor producer, Sony's unmatched processing and sensor technology can detect your subjects in real time, determine precise eye position, and deliver perfect focus. High-precision AF points — far wider than those in conventional DSLR cameras — help you track your subjects throughout the frame, and faithfully capture them every time.
