Be inspired to let your creativity run free with the power of the V3’s 18.4 megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor. With its new EXPEED 4A image-processing engine and a wide range of ISO sensitivities ranging from 160 to 6400 (expandable to 12,800), day or night, the V3 enables you to craft stunning shots. The V3 will surprise you with its lightning fast performance that can rival even a D-SLR camera, thanks to its super high-speed autofocus (AF) CX-format CMOS sensor. In fact, it possesses the world’s fastest shooting speed*1 of approximately 20 frames per second (fps) when the autofocus is on and up to around 60 fps when the focus is locked. With the world’s fastest*2 shooting time lag, you’ll capture absolutely every moment of the action. The enhanced controls on the V3 ensure each button has one dedicated function for improved usability.
