Smallest in class
This is the worldâ€™s smallest interchangeable lens digital still camera using an APS-C size sensor (as of June 2011). We removed the conventional mirror box, AF sensor and viewfinder, reducing the â€śflange backâ€ť distance from 44.5 mm to 18 mm. The result has all the quality of an Î± DSLR, in about half the size and weight.
Compatible with Sonyâ€™s E-mount series of smaller, lighter lenses designed specifically for Î± compact interchangeable lens cameras. Opens up a world of creative options.
APS-C size HD image sensor
The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized Î± DSLRs. With 13 times the area of the typical image sensor, APS-C makes the difference between â€śsnapshotsâ€ť and â€śphotographs,â€ť delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.
HD movie recording
Capture vivid, lifelike HD movies in the PC-friendly MP4 format. Shoot 720/30p high definition or standard definition 480/30p.1
16.2 megapixel resolution
You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmorâ„˘ APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.
Up to 5.5 frames per second
Capture the decisive moment in sports and get the ideal baby photo. Up to 5.5 fps continuous shooting at full 16.2 MP resolution with exposure and focus fixed at the first frame. Standard continuous shooting at up to 2.5 fps.
ISO 12800 sensitivity
Incredibly clear low-light pictures without sacrificing detail. As of June 2011, this is best-in-class performance, made possible by low-noise Exmorâ„˘ APS HD CMOS image sensor and refined BIONZÂ® image processor.
3D Sweep Panoramaâ„˘ Mode2
Capture vast scenic vistas and 16:9 shots in spectacular 3D. As you sweep across the panorama, the camera records separate right-eye and left-eye images that make landscapes come alive on your 3D television4. Records both JPEG and MPO file formats.
Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together. Up to 23 MP image size. Up to 202 degrees maximum sweep angle (16mm focal length).
Anti Motion Blur mode
Corrects for subject movement to capture amazingly clean and sharp images in low light. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image that minimizes subject blur.
Hand-held Twilight Mode
Get cleaner and sharper nighttime picturesâ€”beyond the capability of traditional camerasâ€”without using flash or a tripod. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image of extraordinary detail and low noise.
Auto HDR built into camera
High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining the best highlight detail from one shot and the best shadow detail from another for one incredible shot. Until recently, you needed a computer and editing software. Sony builds HDR in. Handles severe backlighting and other high-contrast scenes. Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)
Live View LCD
The LCD monitor is active full-time for composing shots. Provides a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays.
Tiltable 3â€ť LCD screen
Empowers your photography with a different point or view. Tilts down 45Â° and up 80Â° to frame high- and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss.
921K pixel TruBlackâ„˘ LCD screen
Sonyâ€™s Xtra Fine LCDâ„˘ monitor has best-in-class resolution (as of June 2011). The TruBlackâ„˘ screen includes a special resin layer to suppress internal reflections, increase contrast compared to conventional LCDs. Sunny Weather mode boosts visibility even further in bright sunlight.
