A wide range of advanced connections include mic and headphone sockets, direct HDMI and AV out, a Mini Advanced Shoe and tripod mount, USB and dual SD card slots. Geo-tagging is also available via optional accessory.

Quick custom control
Enjoy fast access to essential functions thanks to intuitive touchscreen menus and touch-autofocus with focus recall. A switchable zoom/focus ring plus customisable function buttons and dial, which keep your most used controls to hand, speed up operation so you don’t miss a shot.

Creative footage
Switch between full auto, manual and Cinema mode, which lets you quickly shoot creative footage with movie-style filters that can be applied during or after recording. Get dramatic effects with slow motion and timelapse recording and capture great audio. Selectable focus speed adds to your creativity.
