16.3MP Live MOS Sensor and TruePic VII Image Processor
The 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor work in concert to enable high resolution still imagery, full HD video recording, and notable low-light quality sensitivity to ISO 25600. The combination of these two technologies also helps to promote high-speed performance throughout the camera system, including a top shutter speed of 1/8000 sec. with a mechanical shutter, a continuous shooting rate up to 10 fps with Tracking AF, and continuous 6 fps shooting with continuous autofocus.
Additionally, full HD 1080p movie recording is supported at 30 fps with stereo sound in either the MOV or AVI format. A Direct HD Movie Button is available for instant access to movie recording and a range of Art Filters and effects can be applied while recording for more creative control. An external microphone jack is also available to enhance the quality of sound during recordings.
FAST Dual Phase- and Contrast-Detection AF
The sensor also affords dual-mode auto focusing that utilizes both contrast- and on-sensor phase-detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus. The contrast-detection system employs 81 areas while the phase-detection method uses 37 areas and, when combined, make the FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) focusing system that is able to reap the benefits from both technologies to produce all-around focusing that is equally fast as it is precise. Four different AF area sizes can be used, too, with the smallest, Super Spot AF, enabling pin-point precision that is well-suited to macro and close-up imagery. Selectable 3 x 3 groups within the 81 areas in contrast-detection can also be paired according to the subject type being photographed and a 0.044 second focus lag time ensures quick focusing for moving subjects.
5-Axis Image Stabilization
In-body image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake with any lens in use and compensates for camera movements up to the equivalent of five shutter speed steps. Furthermore, this unique image stabilization system works across five axes, versus the conventional two axes, and compensates for vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, horizontal shift, vertical shift, and rolling camera shake movements. This range of detected movements serves to benefit traditional still image shooting as well as movie recording and working with moving subjects more effectively. Furthering the effectiveness of the 5-Axis IS, IS-Auto mode is available to detect both vertical and horizontal panning to automatically deactivate image stabilization along the detected panning axis to enable greater stability when tracking moving subjects.
Interactive EVF and 3.0" Tilting Touchscreen
For eye-level viewing, a bright 2,360k-dot electronic viewfinder is integrated into the design and features a smart eye detect function, 29ms image display lag time, and 1.48x magnification. This finder enables realistic, high resolution viewing in a comfortable position that is especially beneficial when working in bright conditions. The viewfinder also allows for real-time visualization of different camera settings, including aspect ratio, highlight and shadow, and magnification. The adaptive brightness settings also enable easier viewing in different lighting conditions, with the brightness being set according to surrounding conditions to better simulate the use of an optical viewfinder.
