With it, you can enjoy blur-free, high image quality photos even in scenes where camera shake is common, such as nightscape, dark indoor, and telephoto photography.

Image stabilisation is applied for scenes where camera shake is prominent, such as telephoto photography.

Camera shake that tends to occur in dark indoor scenes can also be corrected with in-body image stabilisation.

This model is equipped with a built-in flash that reaches further than those on smartphones. Use the built-in flash when photographing people against night scenes and in backlit scenes for prettier photos even in such dark situations.
