Features

20 x Optical Zoom with 4-Drive Lens System

By driving each of four lens groups separately, the drive ranges are reduced, resulting in high image quality, high-powered zooming, and a compact camera body. This keeps the body compact even with a 20x optical zoom.

Stable, Level Shooting and Less Blurring

The HYBRID O.I.S. + (Optical Image Stabilizer) uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots. The Level Shot function automatically detects and corrects the tilting of captured images.

High Sensitivity Sensor

The 1/2.3-type (1/2.3-inch) Back Side Illumination Sensor has a large effective area and 34% larger pixels compared to a commonly used to a commonly used 1/5.8-type (1/5.8-inch) sensor, suppressing noise when shooting in dimly lit places, such as indoor scenes or nightscapes. It achieves stunningly beautiful images even down to the tiniest details.

Clear Shots with Excellent Detail

Enjoy crisper, clearer videos thanks to the HDR Movie function. It combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows. Even in difficult shooting situations, such as backlighting, you can easily capture natural videos with excellent gradation. A dedicated HDR button enables quick mode changes when necessary.

Wind Shield Zoom Microphone

A special damping material is provided in the space between the mic and the mic net to suppress wind noise for clear recording always.

Use Your Smartphone as a Sub Camera

Using your smartphone with Wi-Fi operation as a sub camera, you can shoot from two angles at the same time. Since you are shooting with different cameras, you can use one at a distance, or at any angle you choose. This gives you a wide variety of Picture in Picture images.
