"High Resolution Camera" without mirror guarantee sharp images by avoiding Mirror Shock, Shutter Shock and Camera Shake. The image processing system has evolved to deliver high resolution and low noise throughout a wider ISO range. The camera depicts the mood of every scene's surroundings as well as the texture of details.

Enhanced eye AF and resolution

Make a huge print, or display all the intricate details of an image on a high resolution TV / monitor or on the web. With 4K TV screens and monitors already hitting mainstream and with 8K devices on the horizon, we can see that the future technology is clearly in favour of higher resolution cameras. When stores showcase 4K TV screens today, they load special footage that was captured with high-resolution cameras to showcase the intricate details that a 4K TV screen is capable of displaying. So high resolution cameras automatically imply higher amount of details in images and video footage.

Enhanced image stabilisation

Thanks to the enhanced 5-axis in-camera image stabiliser, whenever you want to move and shoot freely, you can rely on high-resolution performance and mobility, in order to concentrate on the subject without worrying about various types of camera-shake blur.

Shoot and record 4K movies with 5.8K* oversampling

In the Super 35 mode, approximately 2.3x the amount of data required for QFHD 4K is acquired through full-frame readout with no pixel binning, for beautifully imagery that is rich in detail.

*Available in Alpha 1


Seamlessly switch full-frame and APS-C formats

M and S size images have the same number of pixels in the full-frame and APS-C modes, so you can switch seamlessly between full-frame [M:M21] and APS-C [M:M21], for example, while shooting the same scene. [1] Full Frame [2] APS-C

High resolution and sensitivity with 15-stop dynamic range

The highly efficient noise-reduction processing delivers extraordinary resolution complemented by high sensitivity with low noise, plus approximately 15 stops of dynamic range at lower sensitivities for smooth, natural gradations from shadows to highlights.

High sensitivity, wide dynamic range

The standard ISO range is 80–102400, which is further expandable to 40–409600 (80–409600 for movies). The dynamic range is an impressively wide 15 stops, for beautiful, true-to-life images without blown highlights. Together, the camera's high sensitivity and wide dynamic range expand your creative freedom during shoots.

Reducing noise in

Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction technologies maintain image details and cut noise. With highly effective performance in mid-to-high sensitivity ranges, you can shoot at high ISO with no concerns about noise and image deterioration.


Video Features


4K movie recording at up to 120 frames per second

Alpha cameras offer in-camera 4K recording at up to 120 frames per second. Extraordinarily smooth 5x (max.) slow-motion imagery at 4K resolution provides the new expressive capability. In addition to supporting 10-bit 4:2:2 recording, this feature can be used with efficient Long GOP inter-frame compression.

Stunning realism with 8K 30p movies

The Alpha cameras can offer up to 8K 30p XAVC HS recording with 8.6K oversampling for extraordinary resolution and realism. Combined with superior AF, gradation and colour-reproduction performance, 8K resolution brings the world to life. 8K footage is also ideally suited to flexible 4K editing.


Full pixel readout without binning for high-res 4K

Full frame and Super 35 formats can be selected for 4K movie recording. Full pixel readout in the Super 35 mode (approx. APS-C 16:9), without the need for pixel binning, makes it possible to condense approximately 2.3 times the amount of data required for 4K movies, resulting in high-resolution, high-detail 4K with minimal moiré and jaggies.


16-bit RAW output

Get 16-bit RAW output to an external recorder via HDMI for maximum post-production flexibility. Full-frame 4332 x 2448 16-bit image output easily covers 4096 x 2048 DCI-4K, with a choice of frame rates (59.94p/50p/29.97p/25p/23.98p) and colour spaces. It is also possible to output RAW via HDMI while recording XAVC HS 4K, XAVC S 4K, or XAVC S-I 4K to internal card media. Proxy recording is also available.

Effective heat-dissipation for extended recording

A newly developed heat-dissipating structure keeps image sensor and image processing engine temperatures within their normal operating range, preventing overheating while maintaining compact body dimensions. This makes it possible to record 8K/30p or 4K/60p videos, or 10-bit 4:2:0 video continuously for more than 30 minutes.


Breathing Compensation for consistent angle of view when focusing

Focus breathing is any change in a lens's angle of view that corresponds to changes in focus. Sony's original Clear Image Zoom technology is used to automatically maintain a consistent angle of view, for more movie-like focus transitions. This feature can be used in conjunction with Active Mode image stabilisation to shoot stable, consistent imagery.

S-Cinetone for that expressive cinematic look

S-Cinetone is the same colour matrix that produces the highly regarded FX9 and FX6 colour and skin tones. Based on technology acquired through development of Cinema Line cameras such as FX9, S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones that are essential to healthy-looking skin colour, plus soft colours and gorgeous highlights.


S-Log3 and 10-bit HLG deliver extra depth

The S-Log3 gamma curve makes it possible to achieve 15+ stops of dynamic range, while the S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3.Cine colour gamut settings make it easy to match Alpha camera footage with footage shot on the VENICE digital cinema camera, PXW-FX9, and other professional camcorders.
