Lock-on autofocus and continuous shooting

Get crystal clear photos that are always in focus. Lock-on autofocus (AF) automatically adjusts the target frame size based on subject characteristics – so you get an in-focus shot no matter what's happening. The lens-style camera also delivers high-speed continuous shooting of up to 10 fps, and detailed images of 20MP, even when the action’s fast.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation

Built-in Optical SteadyShot technology keeps your image stable even when your hands aren’t. By compensating for the minor hand motions that can cause blurring and distortion, SteadyShot ensures brilliant photographic results even in challenging low-light conditions. Switch to SteadyShot Active mode for sharp, blur-free movie shooting.
