It broadened ISO sensitivity range compared to its predecessors to ISO 64-12800 units in standard mode and up 32-51200 – in the extended. Theoretically, this should ensure maximum crystal clear images from noise and artifacts, very high detail, great opportunity for shooting with slow shutter speed and the freedom to use fixed-aperture lenses day without ND-filters.

Display size remained unchanged – 3.2″, the same resolution – 640 x 480 pixels, but the total number of pixels increased to 1.229 million due to extra white pixel RGB scheme.

Now you can use Auto-ISO with manual exposure setting, and output an uncompressed video signal over HDMI to an external recorder, with the viewing of images on the main screen and the external screen. Video recording is performed simultaneously on the memory card (in compressed form) and an external recorder (uncompressed). Expanded range of ISO, which can be used during movie recording, 64 – 12800. During recording, you can take advantage of a zebra and spotlighting areas with overexposure.
