Stacked BSI Live MOS Sensor

Our 20MP Stacked BSI Live MOS is a leap forward for image quality. It uses a revolutionary new way of arranging imaging elements to let more light in while boosting low light performance. Your photos will have breathtaking resolution with low noise and rich dynamic range of expression from shadows to highlights.

Low light photography

Never sweat shooting indoors or another low light situation again. It features a standard ISO range up to 25,600. When light is hard to come by, you can increase the ISO to 102,400 to capture bright photos in the most challenging environments.

Even better IBIS

Stop worrying about camera shake even at slow shutter speeds. We’ve spent decades developing the world’s most effective image stabilization system so you can be free from tripods and other stabilizing equipment to shoot spectacular handheld, telephoto and macro shots. You’ll have up to 8 steps* of compensation that eliminate camera shake even at slow shutter speeds. Take bright, blur-free photos even in difficult low light settings.
