SteadyShot™ beats bumps and blur
From the rockiest trail to the wildest surf, you want to shoot crisp, clear video your audience will actually enjoy watching. SteadyShot™ normalises the oscillation the image brings to the sensor. This means motion blur and noise levels are reduced, even in low light.
Exmor R™ CMOS sensor with enhanced sensitivity
Mountain-biking downhill at breakneck speed at dusk? Kayaking at dawn? Your footage is still going to look great, thanks to the low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain provided by Sony’s Exmor R CMOS sensor.
BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture
Sony's image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures and details, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing. Together with front-end LSI (large scale integration) that accelerates processing, BIONZ X enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise whether you're shooting photos or movies.
Zeiss Tessar Lens
Capture epic wide-angle views with the ZEISS® Tessar lens or choose standard but striking views. Either way, you'll always be capturing beautiful shots of the most challenging ski slopes, mountain trails, swirling rapids, or pitted asphalt paths.
Built-in stereo mic captures quality sound
Make a great movie even better with great audio. Built-in stereo microphone allows you to capture sounds of your adventure in two-track stereo, naturally. Clear sound with reduced noise enhances the most sophisticated movie work you can produce.
4K Time-lapse Capture
Time-lapse Capture lets you produce time-lapse movies easily by using high-quality 4K still images shot at designated intervals. Then Action Cam Movie Creator (v. 5.1 for Windows, v. 3.1 for Mac) or Action Cam App (v. 2.0)4 simply transforms these images into an impressive time-lapse movie.

Highlight Movie Maker also supports a wider range of scenes — not just sports performance but also daily situations and travel — automatically selecting highlight points of footage to create a highlight movie, complete with background music.
