BIONZ X for faster image processing The BIONZ X image processing engine reproduces texture and detail in real time-for remarkably realistic images with rich tonal gradations and a natural appearance. Visual noise is nearly imperceptible, thanks to advanced area-specific noise reduction. Detail reproduction technology delivers fine textures, and diffraction-reducing technology optimizes the performance of any lens.

Record movies in Full HD detail Press the MOVIE button to record movies that are notable for their sharpness and lack of visual noise - in your choice of 60p, 60i, or 24p. Improved Fast Hybrid AF provides remarkably fast and accurate autofocusing and tracking. P/A/S/M modes give you control over how the image looks, and Clear Image Zoom lets you zoom with extra clarity.

Fast Hybrid AF captures with clarity Shoot with unparalleled precision, thanks to advanced Fast Hybrid AF. Improved phase-detection and contrast-detection capabilities achieve autofocus in 0.07 seconds. Advanced features include faster data reading from the image sensor, higher-speed BIONZ X data processing, more advanced AF algorithms, and optimized control of the lens drive.

Track fast-moving subjects with 179 AF points The Fast Hybrid AF system has 179 accurate phase-detection AF points, covering nearly the entire image area. They enhance subject tracking and the capture of fast-moving subjects, and improve scene recognition as well as subject size detection. Combined with 25 high-speed, high-precision contrast-detection AF points, you can capture with confidence.

6 fps continuous shooting with AF tracking Capture the decisive moment, even when your subject is speeding along. 6 fps continuous shooting with superior AF tracking makes the most of the superb tracking capability of the 179 phase-detection AF points, and accurately tracks your subject-anywhere on the screen. Continuous shooting in high-speed situations achieves crispness and clarity.

Fast Hybrid AF films with artistic control Fast Hybrid AF provides extremely accurate focusing and smooth subject tracking, even while shooting movies. You can also adjust AF tracking duration and AF drive speed, for greater artistic control over the movies you shoot.

Eye AF puts faces in focus Show off your subject's best side, with extremely accurate Eye AF. Even when capturing someone partially turned away from the camera using a shallow depth of field, it ensures that their face will be in sharp focus. A green frame appears over the prioritized eye to let you know that focus has been achieved, and you're ready to shoot.

Improved Lock-on AF targets your subject Lock-on AF enhances the tracking of moving subjects by using the optimal AF point at all times, and adjusting the target frame size to match your subject's characteristics. Thanks to advances in phase-detection AF, it's now more accurate than ever-so lock on and shoot fast-moving targets with precision.

180 tiltable LCD screen for creative freedom Enjoy enhanced shooting comfort with a 3 in LCD screen that tilts 180 to accommodate shooting at every angle, from low to high and in-between. This flexibility, combined with the camera's compact mobility, will greatly expand your shooting options.

Built-in pop-up flash for expanded exposures The built-in pop-up flash (GN4; ISO 100 m) is useful for shooting in low light, capturing subjects in night landscapes (Slow Sync), and shooting portraits in backlit conditions (Daylight Flash). For the portrait-oriented, it can add a beautiful catch-light to a subject's eyes. Rear Sync mode makes it possible to capture the path of a moving subject in a natural manner.

One-touch remote and one-touch sharing One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing Imaging Edge Mobile app to your NFC-enabled Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC" No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
