Shoot, share and get creative


Capture 16.2 megapixel detail, even in low light: Shoot detail-packed stills and movies, even indoors or in dim light, with the 16.2 effective megapixels Exmor R™ CMOS sensor.

Easy sharing with Wi-Fi: Send photos and videos straight to a smartphone or tablet; back-up shots wirelessly to you PC, or view on your connected TV.

Shutter in your pocket: Use your phone as a handy remote to control the camera via Wi-Fi; it’s great when you don’t want to be left out of the scene.

Ready to shoot, near or far: The high-quality Carl Zeiss lens with 8x optical zoom handles every scene, from wide-angle landscapes to portraits and close-ups.

Get a wider view: Make sure nothing’s left out of the picture: the wide angle lens packs more into holiday scenes, interiors and group shots.

Add artistic picture effects: Add creative effects to stills, movies and panoramas without having to download and use image-editing software.

Don’t leave it to guesswork: Intelligent Auto recognises a wide range of scenes and adjusts settings automatically so you can get detailed results every time.

Capture action with no blur: Superior Auto recognises when subjects are moving in your picture and automatically adjusts settings for crisp, blur-free results.

Shoot smooth, steady Full HD movies: Film smooth, steady video clips in Full HD, even when you’re walking or zooming, with Optical SteadyShot Active Mode.

Get clear close-ups: Powerful 16x Clear Image Zoom really fills the frame, even with distant subjects so your shots always stay clear and detail-packed.

Don’t worry about unsteady hands: Enjoy crisper, blur-free still photos with Optical SteadyShot that cuts handheld wobbles when you don’t have a tripod.

See detail in the dark: Use Extra High Sensitivity mode to capture crisp detail in the dimmest conditions like dusk or candlelight.

Shoot high quality pictures quickly: The BIONZ processor is key to high-speed continuous shooting at 10 frames per second and finely detailed image quality.

See photos clearly on-screen: View your shots on the high-resolution Clear Photo LCD screen that automatically adjusts brightness to suit sunshine or dull days.

Take panoramic photos in one go: Just press the shutter button and sweep the camera for extra-wide panoramas of landscapes, city scenes and packed parties.

Boost your flash photography: Advanced Flash brightens up dim scenes, like friends and family who are further away from the camera.
