Incredible pro-style shooting responses
Never miss another moment, however fleeting. Discover a new world of lightning-quick shooting responses and smooth, accurate autofocus tracking - even with moving objects. Capture beautiful videos in detail-packed Full HD. All in a light, compact camera that's easy to carry.

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.

Incredible shooting reactions
*Capture fast-moving action or the changing expression of a portrait subject with a continuous burst of images. Speed Priority mode shoots at a lightning-fast 7 frames per second.

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.
