E-mount lens compatibility lets you get creative
Get professional with a wide range of compatible E-mount lenses. Choose a macro lens to go in closer to smaller objects, or create beautiful defocused backgrounds or ‘bokeh’ with a prime lens. You can even choose a telephoto lens, complete with Optical SteadyShotﾙ image stabilisation, bringing your subject closer with accuracy for a pro-style finish.
APS-C size Exmorﾙ CMOS sensor for pro-style images
Take DSLR-worthy pictures with the lens-style camera. A huge APS-C size Exmorﾙ CMOS image sensor works with a BIONZ Xﾙ processor to produce high-precision 20.1MP images. Capture fine detail, clear images, bright nightscapes, and beautiful ‘bokeh’ ﾖ all from your smartphone.
BIONZ Xﾙ for superior detail and texture
Sony's image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures and details, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing. Together with front-end LSI (large scale integration), that accelerates processing, BIONZ Xﾙ enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise, whether you're shooting photos or movies.
Built-in flash for low-light conditions
Take great shots ﾖ even in low light ﾖ with a built-in flash. Featuring a GN41ﾠrating, you’ll get reliable and accurate shooting in dark conditions where noise and blur can occur. Backlit situations and night photography are no problem either, and you’ll get perfect focus when used with Superior Auto mode.
Superior Auto knows what you’re shooting
There’s no shoot too challenging. Superior Auto mode automatically recognises various types of environments and adjusts camera settings accordingly to optimise every shot. You camera will activate functions such as continuous shooting and Auto HDR when conditions are challenging, so you can capture the shot with ease.
Manual controls for greater shooting freedom
Enjoy the freedom of DSLR-style manual controls. This lens-style camera features P/A/S modes, giving you control over aperture, shutter speed, and more. The result is beautiful photos with a pro-style finish straight from your smartphone.
NFC One-touch for instant connectivity
Near Field Communication (NFC) technology removes the need for wired connections andcomplex set-up sequences. By installing PlayMemoriesﾙ Mobile to your NFC Android smartphone or tablet, you only need to touch your devices to the camera to connect via Wi-Fi ﾖ letting you instantly share photos and videos.
Wi-Fi gives you wireless freedom
Easily transfer movies and more from your camera to your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet by simply connecting to Wi-Fi. Then quickly upload your videos to your favourite websites and social media networks so friends and family can see the action.ﾠ
Intuitive control with PlayMemoriesﾙ Mobile
Turn your smartphone or tablet into a remote commander and enjoy easy camera control, thanks to PlayMemoriesﾙ Mobile2. A clean user interface gives you simple one-handed operation of all your camera settings ﾖ including exposure, shutter release, and zoom ﾖ making it ideal for group photos.
Get a different view with versatile lens placement
Enjoy taking photos from different points of view. Set up your lens-style camera in previously tough-to-reach spots, then take control ﾖ including zoom, framing, and capture ﾖ using your mobile device. Keep a firm grip for versatile shooting with the help of the optional Free Angle Shooting Kit (ADP-FSK1)3.
Easy storage, transfers and sharing
Never worry about losing your snaps ﾖ your photos are automatically saved to both the lens-style camera4ﾠand your smartphone or tablet as you take them. Simply install the PlayMemoriesﾙ Mobile app to export photos from your camera to your smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi. From there, you’re free to organise, edit, and share with friends and family, or upload to your favourite social networking site and share with the world.

Manage up to five cameras using the optional Live View Remote5. Check viewing angles on the wrist-mounted colour monitor with a glance, start/stop recording on five cameras at once, and change settings simultaneously on all units. No cables needed, thanks to built-in Wi-Fi6.
Mount on a tripod for flexible shooting
Shoot long exposures and stunning landscapes with total confidence. Simply mount the lens-style camera on a tripod and get greater stability than you would with handheld shots. Tricky terrain, low-light photography, and group shots all become easier when you connect the lens-style camera to a tripod.ﾠ
Multi-ratio aspects for flexible shooting
Make photos that stand out from the crowd with a choice of different aspect ratios. Choose from conventional digital photo shapes like 3:2 and 4:3, as well as 16:9 widescreen or square for still images just the way you want them.
View your photos in TRILUMINOSﾙ colour
See your photos and videos in rich, natural colour when you share them on the big screen. This lens-style camera supports Sony’s TRILUMINOS colour technology ﾖ see your favourite snaps in realistic colour when viewing them on a TV with a TRILUMINOS display. An expanded colour gamut means reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens are displayed beautifully for vivid landscapes. Faces look better, too, thanks to the natural replication of skin tones.
Auto HDR and DRO for natural gradation
From dark shadows to bright highlights ﾖ Auto HDR (High Dynamic Range) captures every tonal gradation in the scene. It works by expanding the dynamic range of your images to produce clear, striking contrast. When you’re photographing fast-moving objects, switch to DRO (D-Range Optimiser) for a more natural-looking contrast.
Lock-on autofocus tracks moving subjects
Get crystal clear photos that are always in focus. Lock-on autofocus (AF) automatically adjusts the target frame size based on subject characteristics. This lets you concentrate on what your subject is doing, while the camera ensures you get an in-focus shot no matter what is happening.
