Includes Sony Real-Time Tracking technology, winner of Best Photo Innovation in the TIPA Awards 2020.
Once locked on with a half-shutter press, Sony's Real-Time Tracking AF Technology tracks the subject wherever it moves within the frame.
With Real-time EyeAF (for humans and animals) the camera will automatically pick up and lock onto the eye of the subject, when visible in the shot. It's speed and accuracy helped it to be awarded with the Best Photo Innovation certification at the 2020 TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) World Awards 2020.
Superior image resolution and natural-looking textures
The APS-C sensor uses copper wiring for better conductivity and enhanced circuit processing to help optimise light-collection efficiency. In conjunction with the latest-generation image processing engine, this enables better image resolution and natural-looking textures.
Autofocus you can rely on
The camera's wide AF coverage is based on dense arrays of 425 phase-detection points and 425 contrast-detection points, for greatly increased detection accuracy. Fast performance from the latest-generation processing engine helps achieve a remarkable 0.02-second AF acquisition speed, while advanced algorithms work to predict your subject's future location.
Real-time Eye AF for human
Real-time Eye AF provides continuous eye tracking when shooting portraits in motion. You can prioritise either the left or the right eye, and it works even when the face is partially hidden, backlit or facing downwards.
Real-time Eye AF for animal
Sony's innovative eye-detection algorithms have been adapted to animal as well as human, to give you sharply focused pet portraits and beautiful wildlife shots.
Cleaner images in dimly lit settings
Improved noise suppression produces cleaner images in dark settings where high-sensitivity shooting is required. The native ISO sensitivity reaches a maximum ISO 32000, with expanded ISO sensitivity up to ISO 51200 for stills. Noise reduction is particularly effective in the frequently used medium-to-high sensitivity range.
High-resolution 4K movie recording
Full pixel readout, with no pixel binning, processes approximately 2.4 times as much information as is required for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) recording, to produce movies with extraordinary detail, depth and realism.
