Sony mirrorless cameras take imaging far beyond the capability of a smartphone. As powerful as a pro camera, but smaller and easy to use, they turn your everyday shots into beautiful movies and photography to both see and feel.
The image sensor is the true eye of a digital camera, so the larger the sensor, the better your images turn out. With a sensor 10-times or more, the size of a smartphone sensor, every aspect of your imaging improves—more pixels, better low-light sensitivity and wider dynamic range. For sharper images, enlargements and prints every time.

The advantages of a Sony mirrorless camera's much larger sensor are plain to see. A larger sensor produces less noise, more detail and a more beautiful image—especially when the light is low.
Unlike smartphones, the larger sensor in a Sony mirrorless camera allows for a shallow depth of field, or bokeh, to selectively focus on your subject. The dramatic effect adds depth and expression, especially to close-up images, for professional-looking results.
Pets, children, vehicles of all types, do not stay still. The remarkable brain inside Sony mirrorless cameras locks onto moving subjects using multiple focus points, then tracks movement, keeping them ready to shoot the moment you are.
High-speed focus is a key advantage. It instantly locks onto a moving subject and anticipates where it will go next, so you easily stay focused and ready to shoot.
Unlike typical DSLRs, Sony mirrorless cameras have focus points across almost the entire frame, to seek out your subject with both speed (phase-detection AF) and accuracy (contrast-detection AF).
Sony mirrorless cameras are compact and easy to use, so they'll quickly become your daily go-to camera. The rechargeable battery, tilting screens and customization make them an easy upgrade for any image enthusiast.
The best camera is the one you have with you. One of these three compact, versatile and high-quality cameras is likely to become your best companion whenever you venture out.
These compact mirrorless cameras better full-frame DSLRs at half the weight, with outstanding detail, sensitivity and image quality—with silent shooting that won't disturb babies, wildlife or the next table at your restaurant.
