Shooting your way

For scenes that will leave them spellbound, shoot in your choice of cinematic 24 or 25/50p frame rates.

Big scenes need a big sensor

Give your HD videos a smooth cinematic look, even in low light, with a 16.1 megapixel APS-C size Exmor® CMOS Sensor.

16.1MP sensor
Power zoom to 11x
Zoom in close

Coupled with an E-mount power lens, you can zoom in up to 11x, or pull back smoothly and slowly, without jerks in your shot, all controlled from a lever on the body.

More lenses, more creativity
