The inclusion of Sony's acclaimed S-Cinetone look, inherited from the development of the FX9, allows cinematic colour to be achieved directly in-camera. S-Cinetone is optimised for natural skin tones and mid-range colours, with gentle highlight roll-off, for impressive subject depiction even without post production grading.

In addition to Long-GOP inter-frame compression, internal intra-frame (All-Intra) recording is supported0. XAVC S-I recording compresses each frame independently at a high bitrate, up to 600 Mbps, so is ideal for capturing complex motion, and allowing maximum flexibility and playback performance during post-production.

An HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR picture profile, complete with the wide-gamut BT.2020 colour space, can be used for direct HDR (HLG) playback on compatible TVs. The result is true-to-life imagery close to what the naked eye can see, with detailed shadows and highlights, less blackout and less whiteout, all without the need for colour grading. In particular, 10-bit recordings reproduce a level of fine gradation and detail for extraordinary realism.
 High flexibility to fine-tune images as desired (colour grading required)  Instant high-quality image (colour grading not required)
Relying on a new high-precision stabilisation unit, gyro sensors, and optimised image stabilisation algorithms, the camera's Optical SteadyShot™ Active Mode provides precise optical image compensation, for outstanding results for 4K video recording0 1, even while walking. With this unprecedented level of stabilisation it's possible to shoot with the camera only, taking advantage of the compact size and mobility.
