Full Frame performance, crafted for pros

Never miss the moment

A Full Frame 24.3MP Exmor® CMOS sensor lets you go beyond the limits of conventional DSLR cameras. Capture exquisite detail and colour, just like a pro.

Get the Full Frame picture

Unique to Sony, the Full Frame Exmor® CMOS sensor has an expanded receptor surface and thinner wiring layer. This enables it to capture more light and more detail.

High performance in low light

The powerful BIONZ image processor delivers noise reduction just where it’s needed, while a maximum ISO level of 25600 enables bright, clear images even in low light.

Lock on to moving subjects

The unique Dual Autofocus system has a lock-on function that tracks moving subjects and keeps them in sharp focus – whether you're shooting stills or video.

Shoot at 10 frames per second

Capture sport or wildlife with bursts of 10 shots per second.

High-performance 19-point autofocus

AF has 19-point phase-detection with 11 cross sensors.

Built to last

Built to cope with the rigours of real-world photography, the magnesium alloy design is light and durable, sealing buttons and dials against dust and moisture.

Pro-quality Full HD video

From cinematic 24p to 50p/60p Full HD recording, you'll enjoy professional-looking results, with the large 35mm Full Frame sensor adding depth and detail to videos.

The right lens for the job

Macro, super zoom telephoto, wide-angle – there’s an A-mount lens for every occasion, including a choice of G Lens models by Sony and lenses from Carl Zeiss.

Get a true view

A High contrast XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ gives an accurate real-time display of the shot you’re about to take – right down to preview effects and exposure adjustment.
