David, Gunthorpe, Nottinghamshire Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
In-built HDR capability and Panorama shooting in camera are both excellent features. Reasonably compact camera with well thought out external ergonomics such as the tilt LCD viewer.
Bad points:
Menu system a bit complicated some options can be difficult to find. Camera manual is a bit basic for a camera of this price and complexity.

DSLR quality that travels with you

Enjoy DSLR image quality and the convenience of interchangeable lenses, with less to carry. Light and compact, with an easy to use touchscreen and powerful features like Full HD video, 3D Sweep Panorama and Picture Effect.

Extraordinary picture quality
The very high resolution Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor offers phenomenal imaging performance: like a DSLR camera, but without the size and weight. You’ll see the difference with richly detailed, low-noise pictures, even in low light.

Amazing HD movies
Capture smoothly detailed Full HD videos with quick autofocus to track the action – even while you’re zooming. Beautiful background defocus effects add an extra dimension to creative movie shooting.

Small enough to take everywhere
Enjoy DSLR picture quality and super-quick shooting responses in a light, ultra-compact camera. The sensationally styled body fits easily into a coat pocket or bag for day trips, weekends away or holidays.

Beautifully easy to use
Don’t be intimidated by complicated buttons and menus. The easy-to-use new ‘Photo Creativity’ touchscreen interface lets you adjust camera settings – and even create exciting picture effects with no PC needed.

Pick the perfect lens
Why compromise your artistic vision? Select from a choice of compact E-mount lenses – from ultra-slim wide angle to powerful telephoto zoom. Or add an optional mount adaptor and enjoy the limitless possibilities of your A-mount lens collection.
