Dream big, zoom big

Travel, wildlife, and more: pull everything closer with a powerful compact camera that handles and performs like a DSLR. Featuring a huge 50x optical zoom (100x Clear Image Zoom) and a sensitive 20.4MP Exmor™ R CMOS sensor – it delivers highly detailed images whether your subject is up close or far away.

20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor

Bring out the detail, even in low light. A back-illuminated 20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor has wide receptive areas to allow more light and detail into every frame.

BIONZ X image processor

Expect truer colour rendering, better noise reduction, and faster burst mode shooting with the BIONZ X image processor – it’s 3x more powerful than our previous BIONZ processor, for images of the highest quality.

ZEISS lens

A premium Vario-Sonnar T ZEISS lens ensures refined handling, silk-smooth autofocus and exceptional light-gathering performance.

50x optical zoom

Distance is no issue. Pull everything closer with huge 50x optical zoom – for pin-sharp clarity in every frame.

Optical SteadyShot

The lens moves gyroscopically and compensates for movements caused by shooting handheld, giving you amazingly sharp pictures across the focal range.

Track the action

Never lose sight of the perfect shot. Lock-on autofocus automatically adjusts frame size based on the characteristics of your subject for clear and defined results.

Handle like a pro

Get the feel and look of a DLSR with easy-to-use controls and an ergonomic grip. Buttons and features are carefully placed and easy to reach, just like a professional camera.

Mode dial

With the mode dial, you can select aperture or shutter priority. A handy control dial for your thumb gives you quick and simple manual control over whichever mode you’ve selected.

LCD screen

See images appear bright and clear on a 921k-dot resolution Xtra Fine LCD WhiteMagic™ 7.5cm (3”) display.

Multi interface shoe

Attach a range of accessories to your camera, like external flashes, studio microphones, and more. The hotshoe powers these fixings to enhance your shooting.

Electronic viewfinder

Take the guesswork out of composing shots. A 201-dot resolution electronic viewfinder gives you a clear, real-time preview with 100% frame coverage – ideal for framing, focusing, and reviewing shots. A built-in eye-sensor automatically switches you between the LCD display and the viewfinder.

Unleash your inner director

Give your home movies the cinematic treatment. Just hit the dedicated movie button to start shooting crisp, clear Full HD movies. Optical SteadyShot Intelligent Active Mode keeps your videos stable and shake-free, even when you’re walking or zooming.

Full HD

Record in Full HD for clear, smooth movies – you can shoot in 24p frame rate for true cinema resolution.


If you’re looking to get more serious with your shooting, try AVCHD progressive format for sharp, professional-looking footage.

See every trick and transition

A cool effect to show off jumps, tracks, and more with Motion Shot Video. Captured subject movement is displayed in a sequence of superimposed images on a single background.

Create, connect, and share

There’s only one thing better than taking a great photo, and that’s sharing it. With Wi-Fi and NFC built-in you can share your best shots in a second. And with the smartphone remote app you’ll always be in control.

Share with Wi-Fi and NFC

Use NFC to make a connection with Wi-Fi to share your pictures and videos with friends and family.

Make your smartphone a remote control

Change settings, zoom in, and, most importantly, take a shot with the Smartphone Remote App.

Picture Effect

Breathe new life into a picture by using built-in Picture Effect technology. There’s a range of modes to choose from – you don’t even have to download image-editing software.

See your pictures in 4K detail

Connect the camera to a 4K Ultra HD TV to see your photos in dazzling clarity on a big screen. Every shade you see will appear vivid and lifelike thanks to TRILUMINOS™ colour.
