Image quality evolves

Rendering scenes in realistic detail

A newly developed back-illuminated image sensor and evolved image processing system fulfill various shooting needs with high-quality imaging capabilities that you would expect only of a full-frame camera.

Newly developed sensor, evolved image processor

The latest technology achieves stunning processing speed

A new version of the 24.2-megapixel0 Exmor R™ CMOS sensor, now featuring back-illuminated structure, is combined with the latest BIONZ X™ image processing engine and front-end LSI, and this combination achieves data readout speed that is two times faster2 and data processing capability that is 1.8 times higher2.

Back-illuminated full-frame sensor

Higher sensitivity and readout speed

The camera’s 35mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with back-illuminated structure enhances light collection efficiency, expands circuitry scale, and, with the help of a copper wiring layer that contributes to quicker data transfer, outputs data at very high speed, while minimising noise to reveal fine details in every picture.

Reducing noise in high-resolution images

Up to 1.5-stop improvement0 in image quality

Standard ISO range is extended to ISO 100-51200 (expandable to ISO 50-2048000 for stills), while Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction technologies maintain image details and cut noise. With highly effective performance in mid-to-high sensitivity ranges, you can shoot at high ISO with no concerns about noise and image deterioration.

Subtle gradation from shadow to highligh

Dynamic range of up to approx. 15 stops0

Approx. 15-stop dynamic range0 at low-sensitivity settings is achieved, thanks to a revamped CMOS sensor and image processor that provide for smooth gradation from shadow to highlight. This gives you greater freedom of creative imaging.

Faithful colour reproduction

More accurate colour reproduction straight out of the camera

Colour reproduction performance is dramatically enhanced, giving subjects that you capture more natural colour that is faithful to how the colours look in real life. Skin tones in portraits, blue skies in landscapes, and vivid hues in still life images look very realistic as a result.

Steadier shots with 5-axis stabilisation

The latest high-precision stabilisation uses stabilisation unit and gyro sensors and algorithms to achieve a 5.0-step shutter speed advantage in a system that compensates five types of camera shake with a wide range of lenses, and delivers excellent performance.

14-bit RAW0 output for rich gradation

For smoother, more natural gradation, the latest BIONZ X image processor and front-end LSI process image signals in 16-bit form. This processor also allows 14-bit RAW data output, even when in silent or continuous shooting mode
