24.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor with gapless on-chip lens design Upgraded Exmor® CMOS sensor enhances sensitivity and reduces noise by filling gaps between on-chip lenses. Sensor offers 20% higher sensitivity than the previous model.

BIONZ X processor Enhanced processing engine handles enormous amounts of sensor data to allow very high-speed shooting of superb, low-noise images.

79-point, phase-detection AF system Newly developed AF system with 15 cross-sensors for accurate, nonstop autofocus-effective with viewfinder or live view on LCD.

Quick AF Full HD movie Shoot 1920 x 1080 video with full-time AF tracking of moving subjects: now with 60p/24p progressive shooting for cinematic results.

Proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology Sony's unique design replaces a DSLR moving mirror with a fixed translucent mirror, which allows ultrafast shooting with continuous use of accurate phase-detection AF.

12 fps with AF tracking Capture fast-moving action with razor-sharp tracking, at up to 12 fps (approx. maximum speed with Continuous AF mode). Shoot 60 frames per burst, when quality set to FINE and image size set to L.

AF Range Control Locks autofocusing to a specified range of distance from the camera for sharp results, even if the target is obscured momentarily by another passing object.

Wide sensitivity range from ISO 100-25,600 High maximum sensitivity allows natural, low-noise images, even in low light: expansion mode extends sensitivity down to ISO 50.

Creative Full HD movie functions Enjoy sharp, accurate autofocusing with full-time AF; P/A/S/M exposure modes offer total creative control.

XGA OLED Tru-Finder Precision electronic viewfinder with high contrast and 100% frame coverage for accurate framing, focusing, and shot review.

High-resolution information display Select from Graphic Display, Display All Info, No Disp. Info, Histogram, and Digital Level Gauge display options.

3-way tilting LCD screen Freely adjustable high-resolution (1228K dot) LCD with WhiteMagic technology for clear viewing, even under direct sunlight.

Face detection with face registration Recognizes up to eight faces in a scene, optimizing optimum exposure, white balance, flash, and other settings for beautiful portraits.

Expanded Flexible Spot If the active AF point begins to lose track of your subject, one of eight surrounding AF points instantly activates for continuous, accurate tracking of your moving subject.

Clear Image Zoom Digitally zooms center portion of image up to 2x with nearly imperceptible degradation, virtually doubling your zooming range.

5-step tracking adjustment AF tracking duration is adjustable in five steps, with low settings prioritizing stability and high settings prioritizing speed (ideal when shooting various subjects at different distances, for example). Three settings are also available when shooting movies.

Eye AF Captures faces in sharp focus, even when your subject is partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field.

Enhanced AF area modes Lock-on AF, which optimizes target frame size and ensures use of the optimal AF point, is now available as a focus area mode. You can choose the initial AF point for tracking from the Wide, Zone, Center, Flexible Spot, or Expanded Flexible Spot AF area mode.

Enhanced in-body image stabilization Effective image stabilization for any compatible lens, throughout the entire focal length range. Helps stabilize the viewfinder image when the shutter button is halfway pressed.

BIONZ X processing engine The enhanced processor handles enormous amounts of sensor data for high-speed shooting of superb low-noise images. Advanced built-in features include detail reproduction technology to produce more realistic images, diffraction reduction to correct blurred details, and area-specific noise reduction for clearer, more finely detailed images even at high ISO settings. Area-specific noise selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures, and evenly colored areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction to each area.

Customizable function buttons Assign frequently used functions to the customizable buttons of your choice. Easily reassign 11 buttons to activate any of 53 functions for speedier, more intuitive operation.

Focus magnifier and peaking function Magnify your image or movie in the high-resolution viewfinder to manually fine-tune the focus, or use Peaking to colorize the most sharply focused areas of your image for quick confirmation.

Adjustable viewfinder settings To compensate for the type and amount of light in your surroundings, adjust the viewfinder color temperature and brightness in five simple steps.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
