Sony Redefines Your Camera
BIONZ™ Imaging Processor –
power unleashed
The image sensor,
where quality begins
Enormous amounts of data transformed into
images of sublime beauty in the blink of an eye.
Sony’s powerful “BIONZ” image processor does
all this and more.
The silky softness of a baby’s cheek or delicate
gleam of sunlight streaming through the trees – all
the wonders of the world revealed through the eye
of the lens.
In the beginning, there was light. And at the heart
of every Cyber-shot digital still camera, it is the
image sensor that collects the light that eventually
becomes your creation.
The result of years of accumulated expertise in
semiconductor R&D, this lightning quick processor
reproduces all the delicate nuances of the
original scene in images remarkably free of
distracting noise, even at high ISO settings.
“BIONZ” also allows for fast, precise auto focus,
auto exposure and white balance adjustments,
as well as Sony’s intelligent Dynamic Range
Optimiser (DRO), which optimises exposure
and colour reproduction based on the shooting
environment. Capture the best moments at
sporting events, children’s activities, and other
fast-moving situations with complete ease and
As a manufacturer of superbly crafted products,
Sony equips its cameras with only the finest lens,
empowering you to record life’s precious
moments as you find them. We now offer two
lens lineups that share the same outstanding
performance – Sony’s own “G” Lens series which
represents the pinnacle of our design philosophy
and commitment to quality, and a special series
developed jointly with the esteemed German
manufacturer of precision optics, Carl Zeiss.
Since the appearance of the first CCD (Charge
Coupled Device) in 1978, Sony has been developing
its own image sensors, culminating in the release
of the “Exmor” CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide
Semiconductor) sensor in 2007. This highly efficient
low-voltage sensor produces images with virtually
no vertical striping and vastly reduced image
noise. And it’s remarkably fast too, making possible
burst shooting in Sony digital SLRs and rapid
high-resolution imaging in Sony HD Handycam®
Sony’s advanced semiconductor technology.
Brilliant, lifelike images are now yours for the
All these lenses are subjected to stringent quality
control measures and optimised to eliminate
virtually all aberrations. From the bright feathers of
a bird to the most subtle facial expressions, you
can now capture every incredible detail like never
before. Whichever Sony lens you choose, you
can be assured of the highest quality to satisfy
nearly any shooting requirement.
“Exmor” reveals details that amaze and rich
tonality that takes your breath away. Incorporating
Sony’s proprietary on-chip column A/D conversion,
“Exmor” delivers results with markedly decreased
noise and contributes to rapid image data
processing. Leveraging on the “Exmor” advantage
is the compact “Exmor R” sensor which utilises
back-illuminated technology to nearly double
sensor sensitivity for clearer low-light recordings
such as a romantic candlelit dinner or a starlightbathed landscape.
