    Touch Focus and Shutter

    With Touch Focus you can simply touch the LCD at the point of the image you want to focus on, so you can intuitively focus on subjects even at the edge of the frame, without reframing, for both still shots and movies. The shutter can be also operated by touching the LCD screen.

    180° tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

    180° tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

    The high-resolution 3.0-inch type screen with tilt capability is perfect for taking selfies and framing of low-angle shots. You can use it in various shooting positions for greater flexibility in capturing creative compositions.

    Zoom Assist

    Zoom Assist

    If you lose track of a moving subject while framing with zoom, the Zoom Assist function makes it easy to find it again. Program it to the C (custom) button, then simply push and hold it to automatically zoom out, find and frame your subject again, then release the button. The camera quickly zooms back to the original focal length, so you can resume shooting the subject.

    High-frame rate HD video recording of fast-moving subjects

    When you're shooting movies you can capture fast-moving subjects with high-frame rate HD recording at up to 120p (NTSC) or 100p (PAL). This allows you to produce impressive slow-motion sequences during editing. The high bitrate, up to 100Mbps, also ensures detailed images.

    Proxy data recording for easier, faster editing and sharing

    While recording full-resolution 4K video, the camera can also capture a low-bitrate proxy file that's lighter and easier to handle. This makes it easy to upload and share the images soon after shooting them, enabling easier online collaboration.

    Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

    Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

    Lock-on AF captures and continues tracking moving subjects. It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size, improves tracking performance, and helps you take full advantage of every photo opportunity.

    Internal pop-up flash

    Internal pop-up flash

    The camera's built-in, manual pop-up flash feature enables various modes of flash photography. Slow Sync is useful for shooting atmospheric night portraits, Rear Sync lets you creatively express motion, and the Autoflash setting automatically determines whether the flash is necessary.

    My Menu your way

    My Menu your way

    With My Menu, you can register menu items for instant recall, and create custom menus. The menu screen has been redesigned, and you can make function assignments for up to 30 items to retool the camera interface according to your shooting preferences.
