For the professionals: operability and reliability
Tough body for a wide range of weather conditions
The tough body is ready to take on a variety of challenging shooting environments. The magnesium alloy full die-cast frame is highly durable, while sealing helps protect seam, dial, and button. The camera as a whole is dust- and splash-resistant.* In combination, these features help make shooting both productive and enjoyable in a wide range of weather conditions.
*Dust- and splash-resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.
Extended battery life: USB power supply
Compatible with USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, allowing you to shoot while charging at high speed, convenient during long shoots in the studio or elsewhere. The battery can be charged while supplying power to the camera* when used in combination with USB Power Delivery standard compliant battery charger model DMW-BTC15 (sold separately).
*Battery must be installed in camera and retain some charge for feature to work.
