1/2.3 inch (7.82 mm) Exmor R® CMOS sensor
NUMBER OF PIXELS (EFFECTIVE)
The results of over 150 years of ZEISS® expertise in high-precision optics is perfectly clear: this 24–720 mm3 lens renders portrait, close-up, and landscape images in natural glory from every perspective, with vivid sharpness and contrast intact. ZEISS® T* multilayer, anti-reflective coating effectively eliminates surface ghosting and flare.
The more light that strikes a sensor, the more brilliant the resulting image. So the Exmor R® CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels uses back-illuminated design to let four times more light in than more conventional sensors. It’s twice as sensitive to light, and even features Sony Column A/D Conversion technology to reduce image noise.
To transform data from the Exmor R® CMOS sensor into high-resolution images, the BIONZ X™ image processor integrates detail reproduction, diffraction-reducing, and area-specific noise reduction technologies. This combination reproduces realistic images with truer colors and textures, and with exceptional precision in real time.
The high-resolution LCD monitor on the camera back can be tilted up to 180 degrees. So when you’re in front of the camera, you can easily view the LCD monitor to check the framing before you shoot a selfie, for example. This flexibility also lets you comfortably maintain a stress-free posture while monitoring a scene that you want to shoot at a low position.
Retouch the appearance of people in photos quickly and intuitively. With five Beauty Effect modes, you can smooth, tone, and dull overly glistening skin, widen eyes, and brighten teeth—all in camera, with no need for a PC. Your subjects will love how they look magically enhanced in your portraits.
