DSLR-like quality made simple
Now there's no need to compromise. Experience high performance imaging, plus Full HD video and 3D shooting in a stylish, compact camera that makes DSLR-like picture quality brilliantly accessible.

Add a new dimension with 3D
Discover an incredible new world of 3D imaging, made possible by Sony. Sweep Panorama now lets you capture amazing 3D images to enjoy on your 3D TV. Sweep Multi Angle creates amazing 3D-like effects you can enjoy in 2D by simply tilting the camera screen from side to side.

DSLR-like picture quality
Now you can enjoy DSLR-style picture quality, but without the size and weight of a DSLR camera. New Superior Auto Mode intelligently combines up to 6 images for stunning results with low noise and high dynamic range. You can also achieve beautiful portraits with a smoothly defocused background - just like a pro photographer.

Magical movies
Left your camcorder behind? One touch is all that’s needed to start shooting brilliantly crisp, detailed HD 1080i video clips with your Cyber-shot™ camera. Picture quality is brilliantly clear and smooth, while efficient AVCHD video compression keeps files smaller for storing and sharing on your PC.

Brighter, better pictures
The more light your lens lets into the camera, the better. The top quality G Lens boasts a super-wide f/2.4 maximum aperture. Allowing more light to fall on the camera’s sensor, it lets you shoot handheld at twilight or dimly-lit interiors without needing flash. Its wide aperture is also ideal for creating beautiful portraits with a shallow depth of field.

Sensational images, even in low light
Many cameras struggle to produce crisp, clear images in low light. The revolutionary Exmor R™ CMOS sensor boosts sensitivity while reducing image noise for brilliant, detail-packed pictures.
