Large pixels deliver high sensitivity and low noise
The new full-frame 12.1-megapixel0 back-illuminated Exmor RTM CMOS image sensor packs major innovations in light-gathering, wiring and output optimization. These deliver blazing doubled readout speeds, superb image quality throughout the whole sensitivity range, 15-stop1 wide dynamic range, and reduced rolling shutter, with the sensor also providing focal-plane phase-detection AF.
Up to 8x more powerful0 BIONZ XRTM image processor
Along with the new sensor and its unprecedented speed, the BIONZ XR image processing engine has also been newly developed and packs up to 8x more processing power0. With a future-oriented architecture, it delivers high-quality images faster for superlative still and video expression, as well as dramatically improved camera interface responsiveness.
