Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder™
The new high-resolution 3686k-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF) shows a clear image with fine detail. The legendary ZEISS® T* Coating greatly reduces reflections. Smooth EVF images realised by 120fps frame rate even allow you to easily track a subject in fast motion. Fluorine coating on the outermost lens provides improved protection from dirt.
5-axis image stabilisation
New body-integrated 5-axis image stabilisation unit offers a 5.0-stop shutter speed advantage. The live-view monitor image is also stabilised, so you can compose images easily even when shooting a fast-moving subject. (1) Yaw (2) Pitch (3) Roll
New Imaging Edge software suite from Sony
Imaging Edge software suite can maximise image quality, improve production efficiency. “Remote” to remotely control shooting while monitoring on PC; “Edit” to develop RAW data into high-quality photos; and “Viewer” to view, rate and select photos.
