Image quality

It begins with Sony’s leading image sensor technology.

With the BIONZ X R and BIONZ X Image Processors, Sony’s Alpha range delivers outstanding image quality with excellent noise reduction capabilities, even at up to 61-megapixel resolution. Every shot enjoys wide dynamic range with smooth gradation from shadow to highlight, giving you greater creative freedom.

Coupled with an advanced Imaging Processing Algorithm, you get natural color reproduction and smooth outlines. Alpha mirrorless cameras with back-illuminated and stacked sensor technology are highly adept at high-burst rate shooting without sacrificing image quality—just perfect for sports and wildlife photography. With the adoption of S-log video profile, videographers enjoy recordings with wider dynamic range for more creative options during post-production.

Simply a whole new level of visual expression.

Never miss a moment with Sony’s Alpha mirrorless system.

With Real-time tracking and Real-time Eye AutoFocus (AF), a split-second is all it takes to acquire focus, capture, and process an image. From the perfect goal in driving rain, to a veiled bride’s spontaneous beam, Real-time Eye AF always keeps the eyes in focus. The AI-based technology continues to work even when the subject is looking down or during scenes with strong backlight. Real-time Eye AF works perfectly on animals too, so pet and wildlife imagery enjoy precise eye focus.

With stacked CMOS Sensor technology, photographers enjoy blackout-free continuous shooting as images are processed instantaneously. For videographers, the high-speed 120fps video capture brings professional quality to slow-motion scenes.

Sony’s Alpha cameras truly harness speed to your advantage.
