Full HD video is also available at 200Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100Mbps (IPB) with no limit on recording duration so each second packs in more video and pixel data to provide super high quality footage.

Built-in Video Features

Neutral Density Filter

An integrated neutral density filter system with four options, -4EV, -2EV and -6EV as well as an automatic setting allows you to reduces the light while shooting video. That means you can open up the lens aperture to compensate achieving a shallow depth of field for an enhanced blurry background effect, even in bright situations.

Smooth Iris Changes

The lens has been designed with enhanced technology to enables super smooth iris control to makes sure that transitions between aperture values are smooth rather than the traditional hard light drops DSLR and mirrorless cameras deliver.

Smooth Zoom Changes

A coreless DC motor enables gentle constantly zooming while providing seamless focus length changes.
