The sensor designed for speed

Focus fast in any condition – day or night – with our innovative camera system. A Dual Photo Diode sensor delivers spectacularly fast and accurate focusing. With an autofocus system featuring a total of 247 phase-detection AF points covering nearly 70% of the sensor, AF acquisition is achieved in just 0.03 seconds. And with an innovative 3D iToF (indirect Time-of-Flight) sensor for low light shooting, you’ll get precision focusing, whatever the condition. It all comes together on the large 1/1.7” Exmor RS™ for Mobile imaging sensor with BIONZ X™ for Mobile engine, to deliver speed and incredible photos.
