The performance of a DSLR in a compact body


Lightweight & Compact

Enjoy the quality and performance of a DSLR and more in a body nearly half the weight and size. All the advantages of a large APS-C or Full-Frame image sensor and lens interchangeability are now compressed in a compact body, without compromising on image quality, shooting comfort, functionality or AF performance. Whether capturing still images or HD movies, you’ll enjoy what was previously only possible on a DSLR camera.

Biggest Sensors

As the world’s no. 1 maker of image sensors*, we understand that you need the most advanced technology to achieve the best imaging quality. Better images begin with bigger sensors and our Full-Frame and APS-C sensors, usually found in larger high-end DSLR’s, will allow you to capture more detail (resolution), in low-light (sensitivity) and beautiful bokeh (depth of field) giving you the possibility to create stunning photos.

New Technologies

We keep on innovating our products to give you the latest technologies available in the market. Selected Compact System Cameras offer the ultimate in high-resolution 4K movie recording and 5-axis image stabilisation built-in, to neutralize all kinds of camera shake. The latest models also offer the world’s fastest autofocus (0.05s) and the world’s highest number of autofocus points**


Fast Autofocus

All our Compact System Cameras use new faster, more accurate autofocus and tracking, with subject recognition technology, to track every move with greater speed and precision. The α6300 now boasts a record breaking autofocus speed and is the world’s fastest at 0.05 seconds** so you never miss the moment.


Fast Hybrid Autofocus
Thanks to an advanced image sensor and AF algorithm, the Fast Hybrid AF system delivers far superior AF coverage, speed and tracking performance, with up to 425 Phase-detection coverage points.

New Eye Autofocus
Even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera, the face will be sharply focused thanks to the extremely accurate eye detection that can prioritize a single pupil.

Lock-on Autofocus tracking
Keep moving subjects in focus with Lock-on AF. It adjusts target frame size based on subject characteristics and makes use of a wide AF area to ensure usage of the optimal AF point for smooth, stable autofocusing.

The right combination of subject, lighting and focus create the elements required for great photography and with an ever-growing range of lenses available with outstanding performance, there’s a Sony lens to make your work shine.
