This large 1” (1.0-type) stacked back illuminated Exmor RS image sensor with DRAM chip not only enhances efficiency and speed of A/D conversion through its stacked structure with more circuit sections; it also realises super-fast readout speed - thanks to a DRAM chip integrated into the sensor structure. Additionally, the back illumination technology increases light collection efficiency and reduce noise in shots taken at up to ISO 12,800.
24mm1 F4 ZEISS Tessar T* lens
The 24mm1 F4 ZEISS Tessar T* lens delivers high-resolution images with less image distortion in peripheral areas, despite its wide-angle lens design. Employing 6 elements in 6 groups including 6 aspheric elements - this ZEISS lens intensifies recordings’ contrast and sharpness. Furthermore, you can capture improved images and suppress occurrence of ghosts and flare by using an optional hood8.
Super Slow Motion7
Super slow motion7 at frame rates of up to 960/1000fps is available to transform even the most mundane moment into something spectacular. Slow motion shooting at 480/500fps and 240/250fps maintains fine images at nearly HD quality with the choice of Quality Priority mode. End trigger mode lets you capture the decisive moment in super slow motion starting from two or four seconds before the REC button is pressed.
Advanced video features
Desirable filmic looks are available with Picture Profiles which determine the character of movies by changing basic parameters like chromogenic effects and gradation adjustment. S-Log2 is a proprietary gamma setting from Sony that is invaluable for professionals seeking post-production flexibility, and extends the dynamic range of recording to reduce occurrence of blown-out highlights and black crush. Time code is also included which greatly aids in synchronizing cameras in multi-camera shooting.
Up to 16fps6 continuous shooting
Despite its 15.3MP5 high pixel count, the super-high-speed image sensor boosts readout speed to the extent that the camera can achieve continuous shooting up to 16fps6. This lets you capture moments of fleeting beauty or facial expressions in an instant.
