What is Clear Image Zoom?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Clear Image Zoom is a function that uses the Sony® exclusive By Pixel Super Resolution Technology. It allows you to enlarge the image with close to the original image quality when shooting still images. The camera first zooms optically to the maximum optical magnification, then uses Clear Image Zoom technology to enlarge the image an additional 2x, producing sharp, clear images despite the increased zoom ratio.

NOTES: The Clear Image Zoom function does not operate in the following situations:

  • In Movie mode
  • In Sweep Shooting mode
  • When the Smile Shutter function is activated
  • When Drive Mode is set to Cont. Shooting, Spd Priority Cont. or Bracket: Cont.
  • When Face Detection function is activated
  • When Quality is set to RAW or RAW & JPEG
  • When ISO is set to Multi Frame Noise Reduction
