The motion picture quality is greatly improved thanks to the new Digital Live MOS Sensor, too.
With the Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, users can connect the camera to their smartphone / tablet anywhere at one-touch, which makes sharing images much easier. It is also possible to use a smartphone / tablet as a multi-capable remote shutter with a monitor. With the Instant Transfer function, photos are automatically sent to the smartphone / tablet right after shooting.
