16 Megapixel BSI CMOS Sensor

An effective 16.05 megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor delivers high-resolution, detail-rich images above and underwater. A maximum ISO6400 and a built-in flash adds another level of creative versatility when lighting conditions are not ideal. 

AE Lock Function

An innovative AE Lock mode enables you to lock your exposure when moving between light and dark environments. This enables you to be more creative with your compositions, and minimises under or over exposed images.

Versatile 5x Optical Zoom Lens

A wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens delivers a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-120mm. This versatile range allows you to shoot everything from landscapes and seascapes to up-close macro images. A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture delivers sharp results, allowing you to shoot in low-light scenarios such as underwater or indoors without having to sacrifice your shutter speed.

Sharp 5-axis Image Stabilisation.

Its built-in 5-axis vibration reduction technology minimises camera shake to ensure crystal clear photos and silky smooth Full HD video recording.

Built-in Wireless Connectivity

SnapBridge connectivity enables you to instantly share your photos and adventures with friends and family by utilising the integrated Bluetooth capability. Photos can be immediately transferred to your compatible smartphone or tablet and then emailed or uploaded to your favourite social networking platform. 

Wireless Camera Control

Install the free SnapBridge app and your smart device is transformed into a wireless remote control and viewfinder. Explore the creative potential of being able to control and trigger the camera shutter from a distance to achieve unique perspectives and capture up-close action from the comfort of the sidelines.

Built-in GPS + Pressure Sensor

Built-in GPS connectivity is handy on long trips and overseas holidays. A built-in pressure sensor monitors altitude (or water depth) and atmospheric water pressure, allowing you to record the precise location and associated environmental data of each shot you take. When you return home, you can re-trace your footsteps or share your journey on Google maps or other social networking sites. A pre-loaded world map and digital compass will also come in handy during outdoor expeditions, ensuring you arrive at your destination safely.

All measurements are performed in conformity with Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) standards or guidelines.

*1 When the battery temperature is below 0°C (32°F), movies with the size/frame rate set to 2160/30p (4K UHD), 2160/25p (4K UHD), 1080/60p, 1080/50p, HS 480/4x, or HS 1080/0.5x cannot be recorded.

*2 Battery life does not reflect the use of SnapBridge and the LED light and may vary with the conditions of use, including temperature, the interval between shots, and the length of time that menus and images are displayed.

*3 Individual movie files cannot exceed 4 GB in size or 29 minutes in length. When Movie options is set to 1080/30p, it cannot exceed 27 minutes in length. Recording may end before this limit is reached if camera temperature becomes elevated.

*4 Dropped from a height of 240cm onto a surface of 5cm thick plywood (changes in appearance, such as paint peeling off and deformation of the drop shock portion and waterproof performance are not subject to the test). These tests do not guarantee that the camera will be free from damage or trouble under all conditions.

*5 A plug adapter is included if the camera was purchased in a country or region that requires a plug adapter. The shape of the plug adapter varies with the country or region of purchase.
