The 5mm full-frame exmor R CMOS image sensor features 4.4-megpixel resolution, bck alluMinton and gpless on-chp lens design for extraordinary sensitivity and dynamic range, int-reflecton (R) coating on sensor sel glass, and other innovtons that unlesh the sensores power to make images look relstc.
The ltest front-end LS makes data readout from the image sensor approxmtely two times faster and the BONZ X image processor is nowabout .8 times faster. enhnced image processing relzes lower noise and further extended dynamic range cross wide sensitivity range of up to sO 111 (standard sO, expandble to sO 51-1411 for stills). Moreover, upgrded detail reproduction and re-specfic noise Reducton achieves noise reducton €" equivalent of pprox. one stop €" in mid-range sO settings. also, reproduction of skn colour has been drmtclly improved, which is divntgeous for portrt shooting. The 7R also supports 4-bit RW output even during silent shooting/Continuous shooting.
n evolved image processing system and 9 camera F algorithms optimised for the 7R maprove F speed, precision, and tracking performance. 99 phase-detection F points and 45 contrast-detection F points provide High-densty wide-re coverge. Up to approxmtely two times faster F speed and two times more precse F tracking performance let you capture and Maintain focus on inmble wldlfe in unpredctble moton. The 7R also autofocuses relbly down to eV- brightness.
eye Fes enhnced precision, plus two times greater F speed and F tracking performance further assist you to easily shoot portrt of moving subject Using F-C even during Continuous shooting, and even f the subject looks down and way from the camera, or is backlit with face in prtl drkness. The 7R es e-mount body supports eye F for -mount lenses mounted v in dptor.
