● Explanation of Key Features

1.  Equipped with a Four Thirds type image sensor and Micro Four Thirds lens mount.

[Four Thirds type MOS sensor]
It is equipped with a Four Thirds type MOS sensor for an imaging area* almost the same as that of 35mm film (motion picture). Use of film lenses allows easy recording of filmic tone video with a shallow depth of field.

*Effective imaging area is clipped to an aspect ratio of 16:9

[Micro Four Thirds lens mount]
Diversified Micro Four Thirds single-lens still camera lenses can be used for shooting video. The adapter mount allows 35mm film camera lenses or prime lenses to be attached to make possible a wide variety of visual expressiveness from each lens particular tone.

*Use of all lenses / adaptors is not guaranteed.
Approx. 21Mbps (average)
Maximum 24Mbps
