Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

A mirrorless camera is equipped with a large APS-C image sensor, so you can shoot high-quality pictures that are comparable to a digital SLR camera. Also, since the imaging device is several times larger than an ordinary compact digital camera, you can defocus the background and utilize a shallow depth of field just like on a digital SLR camera.

The imaging area per every pixel is larger than an ordinary compact camera and produces clean images with less noise, superb clarity, a high gradation and wide dynamic range. While its image quality is as high as a digital SLR camera, the size and weight are small and compact, making it comparable to the Cyber-Shot® series cameras. Therefore, you can easily carry the camera and shoot beautiful images with high descriptiveness whenever and wherever you want.
