Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ — 5-axis Intelligent Active mode

Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ — 5-axis Intelligent Active mode

Our advanced image stabilisation suppresses camera shake to stabilise a movie as it is being shot within the wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom range, even under unsteady conditions. 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensates for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running. 

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments

Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimising lens motion, predicting suitable AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.

Clear movies, that contain twice the image data of movies recorded in interlace mode, can be recorded in Full HD at 60p/50p (NTSC/PAL) in progressive recording mode. The images are as smooth as those shot at 60p/50p (NTSC/PAL) frames per second, and each frame is recorded as one full picture. So a still captured from a movie recorded in progressive mode looks extra-sharp.
