Wide & Fast AF system

A 79-point phase-detection AF system (including 15 cross points) has points widely placed within the most frequently used central area of the frame. It keeps tracking and fast autofocusing on a moving subject.

Sophisticated AF algorithm in tracking

High performance in tracking moving subjects to enable continuous autofocus even during continuous shooting at 8fps.

Superior AF in low light

Autofocus performs well in low-light conditions as low as EV -2, which is equivalent to a moonlit night in which the naked eye has difficulty seeing objects.

AF Area modes

For autofocusing, you can choose among Wide, Zone, Centre, Flexible Spot, Expand Flexible Spot and Lock-on AF area mode, which allows precise focus tracking of a subject by optimising target frame size and ensuring use of the optimal AF point.

AF Range Control

Locks autofocusing to a specified range of distance from the camera for sharp results, even if the target is obscured momentarily by another passing object.

Face Detection and Eye AF

Face Detection with Face Registration can detect up to eight faces in a scene, and adjust exposure, white balance, flash and other settings for beautiful portraits. Eye AF further assures sharp focusing on the face by detecting an eye to focus on.

Proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology

Sony’s unique design replaces a DSLR moving mirror with a fixed translucent mirror, which enables fast shooting with continuous use of accurate phase detection AF.

Full-time Continuous AF during Full HD movie shooting

Records with superior speed and precision of full-time continuous phase-detection autofocusing, even during Full HD movie shooting, thanks to proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology.

In-body image stabilisation

Effective image stabilisation for any compatible lens, throughout the entire focal length range. Helps stabilize the viewfinder image while the shutter button is halfway pressed.

24.2 MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor

The large Exmor CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.2 MP boosts sensitivity and reduces noise with gapless on-chip lens design eliminating the gaps between micro-lenses to collect more light.

Wide max. ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range

The wide maximum sensitivity ranges of ISO 100-25600 for stills and ISO 100-12800 for movies let you shoot natural-looking, low-noise results even in low light

BIONZ X image processing engine

The processor handles enormous amounts of sensor data to allow high-speed shooting of superb low-noise images. Advanced built-in features include detail reproduction technology to produce more realistic images, diffraction-reduction to correct blurred details, and area-specific noise reduction for clearer, more finely detailed images even at high ISO settings. Area-specific Noise Reduction selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures and evenly coloured-areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction for each area.

Supports 50Mbps XAVC S format

For extremely high image quality and minimal noise, record movies in the high-bit-rate XAVC S format, which enables Full HD image recording at 50Mbps (30p/25p 6 ,24p).

Creative movie function

There's more to auto and manual operation than meets the eye. AF functions are ever-reliable, and P/A/S/M exposure modes offer great creative control. Audio level display and rec level control on viewfinder/LCD screen make microphone/recording levels easy to screen and adjust while shooting. Fine-tune images by choosing among 20 Picture Effect and 13 Creative Style settings.

Top Display Panel

This "must have" feature of this midrange camera facilitates quick, easy setting and confirmation, especially with a tripod setup.

Tiltable LCD screen

Tiltable LCD screen (2.7-type) to clearly shoot at max.135 degrees up and 55 degrees down, enables shooting over the heads of people in crowds, or on the ground for a startling view of pets and flowers. Brightness is adjustable.

Control Wheel

The control wheel on back is popular among α7 series camera users, and you can modify its functionality according to shooting intention for quick changes of camera settings as you look at the viewfinder.

OLED Tru-Finder with 100% frame coverage

OLED advantages of tonal gradation, colour reproduction and contrast, this electronic viewfinder makes it easy to view true-to-life images. It also lets you compare different effects of setting changes, as well as use MF Assist and a Preview function to fine-tune focus and preview shots, including those with defocusing effects.

Customisable function buttons

Assign frequently used functions to the customisable buttons of your choice. Easily reassign buttons to activate any of 49 functions for faster, more intuitive operation.

Multi Interface Shoe and Multi Terminal

The Multi Interface Shoe lets you mount wide-ranging accessories including a high-capacity flash unit a video light or shotgun microphone for enhanced movie shooting and more.
