Selection reason – Camera Grand Prix 2016 Executive Committee of the comment
While equipped with a back-illuminated full-size image sensors of effective about 42.4 million pixels, it is finished as a very compact and lightweight mirror-less camera. Up to about 4.5 stage of the 5-axis body in the camera shake correction mechanism, the image plane phase difference AF sensor of 399 points, which is arranged at a high density, further such as low vibration shutter of the new development which adopted the brake mechanism, packaging of high-pixel camera evaluation to the point is very high degree of perfection as is concentrated. In addition, while this way practicality is high models, taking advantage of the features flange back is short, by going through the mount adapter, etc. can enjoy the shooting wearing the old lens and third-party lens, of hobby it can be said that the height is also a charm of this camera. The high-resolution still photography course, as can also be high-performance machine 4K video shooting, she showed me the direction of the future of the interchangeable lens single-lens camera. In view of these points, it was determined to “Camera Grand Prix 2016 Award”
