A new dimension of photographic speed

A game-changing image sensor from Sony makes conventional camera mechanisms redundant, achieving speed and performance that are beyond the capabilities of mechanical devices. What’s more, freedom from mechanical noise and vibration opens up a vast new world of imaging opportunities.

Features

In addition to high-speed performance of 20fps continuous shooting, blackout-free shooting, AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec., this compact camera expands the potential of photo expression through its anti-distortion shutter that enables 1/32000 sec. shutter speed and silent, vibration-free shutter release.

Key Features

FTP transfer via LAN terminal on the camera body

FTP transfer via LAN terminal on the camera body

Using a new terminal for wired LAN connection, you can conveniently transfer still image files to a specified FTP server for viewing and management as needed. A wired LAN connection gives you the highest possible transfer speeds for large image files - an ideal solution for studio photography. Moreover, since FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) is supported, image files can be encrypted with SSL or TLS while being transferred, assuring a higher level of security.

Supported in Capture One Express (for Sony)

Supported in Capture One Express (for Sony)

Capture One Express (for Sony) is one of the world's best RAW converters, rendering precise colours and incredible detail. It contains flexible digital asset management, all the essential adjustment tools, and fast, responsive performance in one customisable and integrated solution. Note: Please contact Phase One regarding all inquiries as to usage and support including functional compatibility of Capture One Express (for Sony).

Fast shutter release at 1/32000 sec., achieved silently

Fast shutter release at 1/32000 sec., achieved silently

Explore the advantages of a high-speed silent shutter that is fully digital - without a physical mechanism. A result of Sony's image sensor innovation, this shutter achieves speeds up to 1/32000 sec., beyond the limits of mechanical systems. High curtain speed of the electronic shutter suppresses rolling shutter effect and shows excellent performance in capturing moving subjects during sports and other fast-moving activities.
