Say no to camera shake
Keep things crisp and even. SteadyShot INSIDE reduces camera shake when you’re shooting handheld. It’s great for atmospheric, low-light scenes without flash as well as high-zoom shots when you haven’t got a tripod handy. And it works with all your α lens collection, too.

Beautiful images, razor-sharp responses
The BIONZ processor inside your α camera is the key to its lightning-fast shooting responses. This powerful processing engine handles large amounts of digital information from the camera’s sensor, delivering beautiful, low noise images, frame after frame.

Quality that won't weigh you down
Who wants to be weighed down by their DSLR? Small, light and comfortable to hold, there's less to carry on days out, weekends away or longer trips abroad. Now there's no excuse for leaving your camera at home.

Great results made beautifully simple
Never used a DSLR camera before? Don't worry - help is at hand. There's an on-screen help guide, plus a choice of Scene Selection modes to suit any subject. You'll get amazing results without having to worry about fiddly settings.

Control the show in comfort
Connect the camera to your BRAVIA television - then effortlessly control playback functions with your BRAVIA TV’s remote. There’s no need to get up from your favourite chair to enjoy the show in sparkling HD.
