Super-fast 0.05-sec. autofocus speed
The improved autofocus is the result of a cutting-edge AF system that combines super-fast 0.05-second AF speed and wide, dense AF coverage employing 315 phase-detection AF points.
Wide 315-AF-point coverage keeps action in focus
315 densely arrayed phase-detection AF points offer wide coverage (65% of image sensor's image area) for consistent AF and tracking, even of small, fast-moving subjects.
Autofocus achieved in just 0.05 seconds
The Fast Hybrid AF system, combining high-speed phase-detection AF with extremely accurate contrast-detection AF, allows the camera to lock onto and capture moving subjects in merely 0.05 seconds.
Shoot continuously at up to 24fps with AF/AE tracking precision
Smooth subject tracking with reduced blackout
Capture 20.1 MP images, at up to 24fps, continuously for up to 233 shots, and with full AF/AE tracking for each. With reduced blackout it's also easier to follow moving subjects on both the LCD screen or viewfinder.
The more quiet, the more candid
Switch to electronic shutter and deactivate sound to get close to and shoot pets and other subjects silently, even using continuous shooting modes.
The drive behind advanced AF and continuous shooting
Exmor RS® CMOS sensor, BIONZ X and front-end LSI
The 20.1 effective megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor featuring focal plane phase-detection AF sensor, the advanced high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine and the front-end LSI that supports image processing are efficiently controlled. Together, they achieve 0.05-sec AF response, high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking at up to approx. 24fps, higher perceived resolution and low noise levels as well as more accurate face and eye detection.
