At the same time, the state-of-the-art AF range prediction technology helps ensure that even moving objects remain sharply centred. Excellent sound, a lot less noise. Three microphone capsules capture clear sound and minimise noise, allowing high-quality sound recording with clear stereo separation. Shoot the selfies, high and low-position at will.
