High sensitivity and dynamic range

Other focus assist tools include Dual Pixel Focus Guide to aid manual focusing and Tracking AF to smoothly track any subject.

Professional connectivity

Content Transfer Mobile is an app for iPhone designed to enable the editing of News ML-G2 standard compliant metadata pre/post capture, as well as the ability to import footage from the camera to the phone, including instant transfer to FTP servers.

Usability and flexibility

Enhanced touchscreen functions include playback control and menu navigation for easy adjustment of settings, while 11 user-assignable buttons and independent lens control rings offering control over Focus, Zoom and Iris make for intuitive handling and customisation. The built-in motorised ND system provides the flexibility to control lighting and depth of field in a variety of shooting conditions.
