It is currently used in many of Sony αDSLRs. Image processing in the camera converts the raw image data from a CCD or CMOS image sensor into the format that is stored on the memory card. This processing is one of the bottlenecks in digital camera speed, so manufacturers put much effort into making, and marketing, the fastest processors for this step that they can. Some of the models that use the BIONZ image processors are DSC-W150, DSC-W170, DSC-W210, DSC-W350 etc.
Some recent Sony cameras use a significantly enhanced image processor based on the Sony CXD90014 series dubbed the BIONZ X, including the ILCE-7 / ILCE-7R, ILCE-5000, ILCE-6000, DSC-RX10, ILCA-77M2 and DSC-RX100 III. It features, among other things, detail reproduction technology and diffraction-reducing technology, area-specific noise reduction and 16-bit image processing + 14-bit RAW output. It can process up to 10 frames per second and features Lock-on AF and object tracking.
