Get amazingly close with 20x optical zoom plus 40x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.
Shoot incredibly smooth video1 and still images with the new BIONZ X processor and Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Intelligent Active mode. When the processor and image stabilization technology work together they deliver sharp image quality with low noise and minimal blur even while the user is strolling and the camera is zoomed in.
This camera features a 20.4 megapixel Exmor R CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera’s professional G Lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor delivers extremely fast up to 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080p movie modes.
Lock-On AF gives you the ability to focus on multiple points with subject recognition to keep your subject in sharp focus even when in motion.
Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing/One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi/NFC3 control. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, the camera also supports NFC (near field communication) providing “one touch connection” convenience when transferring images to Android smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control — a feature that allows shutter release to be controlled by a smartphone — connection to the smartphone can be established by simply touching compatible devices.
Motion-Shot Video traces subject movement on the camera’s LCD for a unique visual effect. Use this playback function on the camera to study form and pathways of subjects.
Enjoy the beauty of 4K quality still image (4x the resolution of Full HD) via simple HDMI connection to compatible 4K TVs. The camera can also be connected via HDMI to HDTVs for full HD 1080p resolution images.
Reach beyond the traditional wide angle lens, and capture more breathtaking shots with Sweep Panorama mode. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and up to 360° full circle, the camera can take a variety of panoramic shots. Now capturing wide landscapes is as easy as press and sweep.
Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select camera models have up to nine different effects.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I resize another photo from a photo inside the camera?
Not with this Cybershot Point and Shoot, however it does do one thing which is rather unusual; if you had the camera in an angle shot and rotated the camera, it will sometimes RESIZE the image but there are no options to resize the image if you wanted to.
Is this a mirrorless camera?
Yes it is, but you don't recognize it because of its design; remember it's a point and shoot even with macros and does very well with videos too.
Does it work with iOS?
1. On the touch screen of your Apple® iOS device, tap to select Settings. 2. Tap Privacy. * NOTE: If Privacy is grayed out and cannot be selected, make sure the Restrictions option is set to Off by following the below steps. The same passcode you used to set this option is necessary to disable it. 4. Tap General. 5. Tap Restrictions. 6. Enter your passcode. 7. Tap Disable Restrictions. Tap Photos. Find and tap the PlayMemories Mobile app. Tap to move the onscreen slide switch to ON.
