Advanced technologies for beautiful nighttime shots
Four technologies for capturing blur-free images of night landscape, as well as portraits in dimly lit indoor situations or when the portrait subject is backlit. These technologies also enable the capture of beautiful pictures of dark scenes.
Less noise at high sensitivities
The new image-processing engine EXPEED C2, which supports high sensitivities and superior noise reduction processing technology enable the capture of beautiful, blur-free pictures with very little noise, even at high sensitivities. With support for a maximum sensitivity of ISO 3200 at the largest image size (12M 4000 X 3000), users can enjoy worry free shooting even in dark or dimly lit situations.
Lens-shift + electronic vibration reduction (VR) function
Two high-performance vibration reduction (VR) functions—lens-shift and electronic—can be enabled simultaneously. This eliminates the need for a tripod in dark places or at the maximum telephoto zoom position with effective vibration reduction equal to an increase in shutter speed up to four stops, for capture of beautiful photos with hand-held shooting.
The camera detects camera shake and subject movement, and automatically compensates by controlling shutter speed and ISO sensitivity to reduce blurring. This function is also convenient for freezing a moving subject.
The camera provides optimal flash control according to shooting conditions. In dark surroundings, the camera automatically adjusts shutter speed to suppress blur caused by camera shake, and increases ISO sensitivity for beautiful exposure of background portions that the flash does not reach. When shooting backlit portraits, the camera automatically recognizes the human face and controls flash and focus for beautiful portraits every time.
(2) High-speed performance of the CMOS image sensor maximized with a high-speed continuous auto overlay function
Making the most of the features of the CMOS image sensor, which is capable of processing a huge volume of image data at incredibly high speed, the high-speed continuous auto overlay function reduces blur and noise with a high level of precision.
New technology adopted for Night Portrait mode
This new technology enables capture of bright, natural photos that more accurately reproduce the scene by combining background images captured continuously at high speed with a bright image of the portrait subject lit by the flash. The portrait subject is brightly lit while the ambience of the background is preserved, enabling hand-held shooting of beautiful souvenir photos of a night at the amusement park or at a dimly lit indoor party with friends.
