Leave nothing to chance

Take the guesswork out of creative photography. The OLED Tru-Finder™ viewfinder accurately shows how shots will look. The 20.1MP sensor captures every tiny detail. And lock-on autofocus puts fast-moving subjects right in your sights. Start to react as one with your camera.

Soak up every detail
Create images with impact with the 20.1MP Exmor® APS HD CMOS sensor. With its wide sensitivity range, it picks up on every little detail - even in low-light conditions. Together with the BIONZ image processing engine, it ensures crisp, clear pictures every time.

What you see is what you shoot
With some viewfinders, shots don’t turn out quite as expected. But the high-contrast OLED Tru-Finder™ gives an accurate, real-time display of the shot you're about to take – right down to camera settings and exposure adjustments. So you can compose with confidence.

Lightning quick shooting
From fast-moving sports to fast-changing facial expressions, capture the moment with a continuous burst of images. A high-performance 15-point autofocus system (with 3 cross sensors) lets you shoot at a rapid 8 frames per second so you can follow the action as it happens.

Film fluid Full HD movies
In the mood for movies instead of photos? Capture smooth, highly detailed Full HD videos with continuous autofocus to track the action – even when you’re zooming in or out. And unlike a DSLR, you can watch the story unfold on the OLED Tru-Finder™ as you film.

Master the art of composition
While some photographers have a natural eye for a shot, most of us could use a little help. Auto Object Framing automatically proposes a pro-style crop of your original picture. Whether you use the suggested version or your original is entirely up to you.

Carry a lens that’s ready for anything
From landscapes to portraits, you're ready for anything with a compact lens that can handle the most frequently used zoom situations. Ideal for everyday shooting, it covers that all-important 18-55mm range, with a smooth autofocus to help you zoom in quietly and accurately.
