Sony has launched in the Middle East, its latest digital camera the α7 series of interchangeable-lens models and first camera with optical 5-axis image stabilisation, the company claimed in a statement.
The camera is compact size and light build and takes forward the traditions of the α7 series that includes the interchangeable-lens full-frame camera.
With a 24.3 effective megapixel 35mm full-frame ExmorR CMOS sensor, the new camera compensates for instability, providing optical image stabilisation equivalent to up to 4.5 steps faster shutter speed of correction for still images. The camera’s in-body image stabilisation is effective even in combination with E-mount lenses without Optical SteadyShot (OSS).
In addition, the camera offers wide AF coverage with a 117-point focal plane phase-detection AF sensor. The phase detection AF sensor and 25 contrast detection AF points are placed over a wide area of the screen. This makes use of the superior tracking capabilities of the phase detection AF and therefore enables clear capture of moving subjects that might otherwise evade focus.
