It’s all in the detail

The high-resolution CMOS sensor assures detail-packed pictures with excellent contrast and gorgeous colours. Exmor technology cuts noise while signals are converted to digital form. The result? Flawlessly beautiful images.

Look closely: you’ve never seen anything like it

Don’t miss those vital details. The Xtra Fine LCD screen gives you an incredible view of all your shots, with superb colour reproduction and contrast. It’s ideal for checking correct focus and exposure when you’re reviewing pictures after shooting.

Incredible shooting reactions

Great pictures from any angle

The LCD screen tilts up or down for comfortable viewing in different shooting positions. It’s really useful if you’re not holding the camera close to your eye: for example of you’re shooting above a crowd or crouching down for an interesting viewpoint.
