The WX800 lets you capture the beauty of life around you and share it easily. Whether shooting stills or 4K video, the camera’s powerful zoom lens, fast and precise AF and 180° tiltable LCD touch screen ensure that selfies, and even shots at challenging angles, always look their best, and you’ll get clear images even with hand-held telephoto shooting.
The WX800’s sophisticated algorithms and high-performance gyro-sensor work together to compensate for camera shake. This provides a significant reduction in shake even with hand-held shooting at high zoom magnifications.
Zoom Assist for easy framing of moving subjects
Zoom Assist enables fast, easy framing of moving subjects at telephoto range. Assign a custom button to this function and, when it’s pressed, the camera will temporarily zoom back out so you can find your subject and quickly reframe.
Advanced image-processing technology delivers high-resolution images with low noise
The back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, with 18.2-megapixel effective resolution, and the advanced BIONZ X image-processing system work together to reduce noise at high ISO settings like ISO 6400 (expanded). Fine textures are accurately reproduced, and even dimly lit scenes can be beautifully shot. Colour reproduction is improved, especially for for human skin tones.
Fast Intelligent AF with 0.09-second response
The WX800’s spatial subject detection algorithm and fast lens drive help capture even fleeting moments. The algorithm predicts the focus point, then as the shutter button is half-pressed the AF quickly focuses on the subject.
Eye AF for perfect portrait shots
The Eye AF feature automatically detects and focuses on the eyes of the main subjects. It performs well even under difficult conditions, such as when the subject is looking downward or when faces are backlit or dimly lit.
