Manual control in movie
Explore and enhance your creative movie making skills. Manual control in movies gives you expert control of exposure parameters such as aperture and shutter speed. For example you can add a personal touch to movies by creating scenes with shallow depth of field using a wide aperture setting or control the flow of your movie by changing the shutter speed.
Large 1.0-type CMOS sensor
Capture superb low light shots and beautiful background blur. The 1.0-type CMOS sensor offers you improved low light performance without compromising the compactness of the camera. It uses a light-sensitive area that is nearly 3 times larger than that of 1/1.7-type sensors, providing increased light sensitivity, reduced noise, (especially at high ISO) and a wider dynamic range. It also gives you greater creative flexibility with a shallower depth of field for professional looking out of focus backgrounds.

Enviable results in any situation

Shoot stunning portraits with beautiful perspective and background blur using the wide aperture at full zoom.
