Tiltable 3” LCD screen
Shooting comfort is enhanced by a 3” LCD screen that smoothly tilts to accommodate everything from low to high-angle shooting. This tilting flexibility combines with the camera’s compact mobility to greatly expand your shooting options.
BIONZ X™ image processing engine
BIONZ X™ image processing engine
Astonishingly fast, Sony’s sophisticated BIONZ X™ image processing engine reproduces textures and details in real time as seen by the naked eye. The resulting images are remarkably realistic with especially rich tonal gradations and a natural three-dimensional appearance. Whether shooting still images or movies, visual noise is nearly imperceptible, thanks to further advanced area-specific noise reduction. Detail reproduction technology delivers more finely detailed textures while diffraction-reducing technology optimizes the performance of any lens you mount to enable advances such as finer details at small aperture settings.
Full HD movies
Full HD movies
Press the MOVIE button to start recording beautiful movies that are notable for their sharpness and lack of visual “noise”—in your choice of 60p/50p, 60i/50i or 24p/25p*. New improved Fast Hybrid AF provides remarkably fast and accurate autofocusing and tracking while shooting movies. You can also use P/A/S/M modes to achieve maximum control over how the image looks, and zoom with extra clarity, courtesy of Clear Image Zoom. *NTSC/PAL
The world’s fastest* AF performance
The world’s fastest* AF performance
Capture every subject clearly with unparalleled precision, at record speed, thanks to Sony’s newly advanced Fast Hybrid AF with vastly improved phase-detection and contrast-detection capabilities. Faster data reading from 
the image sensor, higher-speed BIONZ
 X™ data processing, more advanced AF algorithms and optimized control of the lens drive delivers approximately 35% faster performance than in previous systems. *Among interchangeable-lens digital cameras equipped with an APS-C image sensor as of February 12, 2014, based on Sony research. Measured using internal methods with an E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS IS lens mounted. CIPA guideline compliant.
179 AF points over nearly the entire screen
179 AF points over nearly the entire screen
In addition to 25 higher-speed, higher-precision contrast-detection AF (Fast Intelligent AF) points, the improved Fast Hybrid AF system features 179 extremely accurate phase-detection AF points that cover nearly the entire image area. They permit enhanced subject tracking
plus the capture of fast-moving subjects anywhere on the screen, as well as improved scene recognition and subject size detection.
11 fps continuous shooting with AF tracking
11 fps continuous shooting with AF tracking
When your subject is moving fast, 11 fps continuous shooting with superior AF tracking performance ensures you capture the decisive moment. This feature makes the most of the superb tracking performance of Sony’s wide-area 179 phase-detection AF points to accurately track your subject anywhere on the screen.
High-resolution OLED Tru-Finder™
High-resolution OLED Tru-Finder™
View every scene clearly and naturally on the bright and accurate OLED Tru-Finder™ viewfinder, which offers 100% frame coverage. The new optical system with four double aspherical lenses provides a wide viewing angle of approximately 33° and clear visibility from corner to corner. Clear details, rich tonal gradation, and high contrast are yours in both dark and light environments, thanks to an advanced OLED design that lets you more faithfully preview defocusing, exposure, and other effects. You can also fine-tune the focus by taking advantage of MF Assist and a helpful Peaking function, as well as adjust brightness in five steps to match the shooting environment.
Swift, intuitive operation
Swift, intuitive operation
Controls are refined for intuitive DSLR-style operation while viewing scenes through the viewfinder. The mode dial enables quick selection of shooting modes with your thumb, while the control dial and control wheel make it easy to set various parameters.
