One for the pros

It’s enough to please the toughest of photo editors, with results in every frame. A full-frame sensor with Translucent Mirror technology is more of everything, the kind of detail, colour and tone you need for demanding tasks. It goes far beyond the limits of your DSLR camera.

Trusted to deliver every time

See every detail, every strand of colour, even in low-light with a high-resolution 24.3 megapixels and 35mm full-frame Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor. Teamed with the BIONZ image process engine, you get powerful noise reduction – for lifelike photos with big impact.

Always be ready on the job

A unique Dual Autofocus System with AF-D Mode locks on to fast-moving subjects with ease – it has advanced 19-point phase-detection and a 102 focal point sensor. AF Range Control minimises background blur, each face in the crowd becomes as clear as the racing car speeding by.

Reach out and touch it

The 35mm full-frame sensor is larger than most camcorders, so your videos get a better sense of distance between foreground and background – it’s depth and detail for all projects. Whether it’s classic movies or slo-mo, 24p to 50p/60p Full HD recording is all the scope you need.
