Product Features in Detail
Taking Bridge Cameras to Another Level

4K Live Cropping
4K Live Cropping enables unique video expressions that were previously difficult to record. Only the recording frame moves while the camera maintains a fixed position. This allows stable panning, and lets you zoom in on a subject that is not in the image's centre position.
High Speed Video in HD

* The recording format is 25p (For NTSC area: 30p)
Ultra High Speed Focusing
Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. It instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultra-high-speed AF and 6 fps burst shooting with AFC.
10 fps burst shooting with AFS is also available.
Shoot Now, Focus Later!
Taking photos without worrying about focusing.

A feature which saves you time to focus on the more important things in life!
Focus Peaking function shows the peak of focus in MF and AF+MF mode. It is also available in remote photo / video shooting with smartphone / tablet via Wi-Fi
1/16000 Electronic Shutter

Capture Great Nightlife Pictures
When the sun goes down in Tel Aviv, the young city wakes up and turns night into day. Capture the dynamic, hip and young crowd or the skyline at the best time of the day. Great picture quality even in low light conditions.
