Significantly Enhanced Shooting Performance and Functionality with DIGIC 8
Enjoy smoother continuous shooting, seamless movies, lower noise levels, and improved overall image quality thanks to the DIGIC 8 image processor, which processes the tremendous amount of data from the image sensor at extremely high speed. Indoor and night photography is also more convenient with the expanded ISO speed of up to 51200 and the ability to carry out AF in conditions as dark as -EV2. The improved Auto Lighting Optimizer has also been improved for enhanced blowout reduction, for better backlit shots.
Improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF
An improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF system has enabled better AF subject detection, acquisition and tracking precision over a wider area with up to 143 AF points covering 88% horizontal by 100% vertical area of the screen when a compatible lens is attached. New and enhanced features include Eye Detection AF, a "Small" AF frame size option, the use of defocus mapping for subject tracking, and a denser, larger Zone AF area.
143 AF points over an expanded AF area only applicable when paired with compatible lenses. For full list of compatible lenses, please refer to the tab below.
4K Movie Shooting
4K movie shooting at a frame rate of 23.95p / 25p. Recording of 4K time lapse movies is also supported. The Vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor endows users with the freedom to shoot from different camera angles. 5-axis image stabilization (Combination IS) ensures that even footage shot while walking is seamless with minimal shaking, especially when a compatible lens is attached. Users can easily extract high-resolution still images from 4K movies on the spot with the in-camera 4K Frame Grab feature.
During 4K video recording, only contrast-detection AF is available
