Full 1080p HD video recording is possible at 50 Mbps with Sony Alpha a5100, as well as 720p 120 recording in the high-quality XAVC S codec.  The Marker Setting helps you frame your final shot by displaying a center marker, guide frame, aspect marker, and safety zone on the LCD screen. Zebra and focus peaking tools also enhance more controlled shooting.
