50x the Magnificence
Closeness is nothing without clarity. Enjoy 50x optical zooming, silky-smooth Full HD video and razor-sharp, 20.4MP pics - perfect for sporting events and all your adventures. Looking to capture the mood of a shot without the harshness of a flash? Low-light environments (think candlelight and campfire) maintain their warmth thanks to the sensitive Exmor R CMOS sensor.
Crazy Clear Close-ups
Get amazingly close with 50x optical zoom plus 100x Clear Image zoom ZEISS lens. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in fuzzy images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.
Shoot incredibly smooth video and still images thanks to the new BIONZ X processor and Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active mode1. When the processor and image stabilization technology work together they deliver sharp, blur-free photos and footage in otherwise unsteady situations, like shooting video while walking or zoomed in.
With a 20.4-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's high-quality ZEISS lens. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced BIONZ X image processor technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images - even in challenging low-light conditions, while sensor and processor working together enable 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080p movie modes.
Cinematic HD Movies
Record crystal-clear movies at the highest resolution available with Full HD 1080/60p/24p video capture (records in 29-minute segments)1. Stunning, fast-motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV2.
Lock-On AF for Enhanced Focusing
When shooting quick-moving subjects - think kids playing soccer or a seagull in flight - it can sometimes be difficult to maintain a crisp focus. Lock-On AF uses multiple points with subject recognition to keep your shot sharp, even in motion.
