Sony G Lens with 10x Optical Zoom

With a 25–250 mm focal range, this G Lens from Sony lets you get closer to the action than with your smartphone. Unlike digital zoom, the 10x optical zoom retains image quality across the full zoom range. You’ll be able to capture distant subjects in rich, precise detail without having to worry about image degradation.

Massive 18 MP Exmor R® CMOS Image Sensor

The massive 18 MP Exmor R® CMOS sensor captures high definition images. Back illumination technology allows the lens to utilise incoming light more efficiently—with roughly twice the sensitivity and half the noise as some other sensors—resulting in beautiful low light images with incredible, smooth and clear details.

BIONZ™ technology

The BIONZ image processor enables high-speed, high-precision processing of the information coming from the CMOS sensor. In doing so, this technology realises beautiful, natural images that bring out the full potential of both the lens and image sensor.

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 PlayMemories 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.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation

Optical SteadyShot technology keeps your image stable even when your hands aren’t. By compensating for the minor hand motions that can cause blurring and distortion, SteadyShot ensures brilliant photographic results even in challenging low-light conditions. Switch to SteadyShot Active mode for sharp, blur-free movie shooting.

Superior Auto function

Capture high quality images with confidence. The Superior Auto function matches the scene you’re shooting to one of 44 pre-loaded patterns, adjusting the camera’s various settings to produce the optimal image. It can also take multiple shots, combining them to create a single image with less noise and a wider dynamic range.
