Shoot in low light with Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor

Faithfully reproduce every aspect of the scene, even in low light. The Exmor R CMOS sensor’s distinct design puts wiring behind the light-capturing photo sites for vastly improved sensitivity and reduced noise. Combined with higher-speed parallel signal processing and more rapid signal conversion, images have a wider dynamic range and rich gradations for intense detail and clarity.

BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture

All digital cameras need to convert the light captured by their sensor to a beautiful digital photograph. The engine that powers this conversion is just as important as your lens and a high-resolution sensor--so Sony developed the remarkable BIONZ X processor, allowing more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise while shooting both photos and movies.

World-renowned ZEISS optics

Leveraging over 150 years of experience in precision optics, the ZEISS lens gives your recordings intense contrast and sharpness, free from glare and reflection thanks to an advanced multi-layer coating.

Sharp, ultra-wide 170° lens

Get epic wide-angle views with the 170˚ ZEISS Tessar® lens. Or switch to a SteadyShot-stabilized 120˚ view. Either way, you'll always be capturing beautiful shots of the most challenging ski slopes, mountain trails, or pitted asphalt paths.

Full pixel readout without pixel binning

The sensor reads out image data from every pixel which frees the video from aliasing, moire and false color artifacts.

High bit rate to get all the subtle details

Your footage will feature smooth, high-quality images thanks to the high-bitrate 4K/100Mbps and Full HD/50Mbps shooting capability. 

Built-in stereo mic captures quality sound

Make a great movie better with great audio; built-in stereo microphone allows you to capture sounds of you adventure sterically and naturally, while the Wind Noise Reduction feature deserves a clear sound track.

Advanced SteadyShot beats bumps and blur

From the rockiest trail to exciting cycling – you want to shoot crisp, clear video your audience will actually enjoy watching. And better yet, advanced SteadyShot is more effective against low-amplitude vibration—such as that from radio-controlled helicopters. So now you can get amazing panoramic shots from your drone with shake-free clarity.

Explore sophisticated shooting features for pro-style movies. Use advanced manual settings like white balance and AE shifting, and optimise brightness and hue to match images of other camcorders for easier movie editing.

Interval Still Recording lets you get creative with videos

Capture subtle movement with detail and precision. Interval recording takes a still photo every 5, 10, 30 or 60 seconds, so they can be stitched together into a time-lapse video. This is especially useful for continuous recording over a prolonged period.
