Imaging Edge software suite from Sony

Imaging Edge software suite from Sony

The Imaging Edge software suite can maximise image quality, improve production efficiency, and help you finely adjust RAW-based images. Use its "Remote" to remotely control shooting while monitoring scenes via live-view PC screen; "Edit" to develop RAW data into high-quality photos; and "Viewer" to view, rate, and select photos from a list of shots.

The world's smallest camera with wide zoom range

The world's smallest camera with wide zoom range

Covering the range from wide-angle 24mm to telephoto 720mm, the WX800 is the perfect camera for everything from memorable travel photos to everyday snapshots. The ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens delivers superb image quality all across the zoom range, and the Clear Image Zoom feature allows further magnification of the subject (up to 1440mm) while preserving high resolution.

Exmor R and BIONZ X deliver superb image quality

Exmor R and BIONZ X deliver superb image quality

The WX800's image sensor - an 18.2 megapixel (effective) back-illuminated CMOS sensor - works with the advanced BIONZ X image-processing system to deliver superb image quality, even for fine textures and details. With a range of ISO80-6400 (expanded), even dimly lit scenes can be beautifully shot, while colour-reproduction improvements produce natural-looking skin tones.

Touch Focus and Shutter

Touch Focus and Shutter

With Touch Focus you can simply touch the LCD at the point of the image you want to focus on, so you can intuitively focus on subjects even at the edge of the frame, without reframing, for both still shots and movies. The shutter can be also operated by touching the LCD screen.

180º tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

180º tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

The high-resolution 3.0-inch type screen with tilt capability is perfect for taking selfies and framing of low-angle shots. You can use it in various shooting positions for greater flexibility in capturing creative compositions.

Zoom Assist

Zoom Assist

If you lose track of a moving subject while framing with zoom, the Zoom Assist function makes it easy to find it again. Program it to the C (custom) button, then simply push and hold it to automatically zoom out, find and frame your subject again, then release the button. The camera quickly zooms back to the original focal length, so you can resume shooting the subject.

High-frame rate HD video recording of fast-moving subjects

High-frame rate HD video recording of fast-moving subjects

When you're shooting movies you can capture fast-moving subjects with high-frame rate HD recording at up to 120p (NTSC) or 100p (PAL). This allows you to produce impressive slow-motion sequences during editing. The high bitrate, up to 100Mbps, also ensures detailed images.

Proxy data recording for easier, faster editing and sharing

Proxy data recording for easier, faster editing and sharing

While recording full-resolution 4K video, the camera can also capture a low-bitrate proxy file that's lighter and easier to handle. This makes it easy to upload and share the images soon after shooting them, enabling easier online collaboration.

Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

Lock-on AF captures and continues tracking moving subjects. It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size, improves tracking performance, and helps you take full advantage of every photo opportunity.

4K  movies recorded with full pixel readout

4K movies recorded with full pixel readout

The WX800 is the first in the WX -series to record 4K video (QFHD, 3840 x 2160 pixels). High-quality 4K video is achieved with a full sensor pixel readout, and no pixel binning - collecting approximately 1.6x as much information as is required. This oversampling effect results in images of outstanding resolution with reduced moire and jaggies.

Fast Intelligent AF to capture decisive moments

The camera adopts Fast Intelligent AF using highly accurate contrast-detection autofocus with 0.09-second response. It achieves focus by minimising wasted lens motion, predicting AF range and accelerating the lens drive, improving response so you can capture even more fleeting moments.

Eye AF feature for perfect portrait shots

The camera's sophisticated Eye AF feature can be activated to automatically detect and focus on the eyes of the main subjects in your shots. It rapidly and accurately detects eyes even under difficult conditions, such as when the subject is looking downward or when faces are backlit or dimly lit.

Continuous shooting at up to 10 frames per second

It's possible to perform high-speed continuous shooting at up to 10 frames per second for up to 155 shots. Even when image brightness changes during continuous shooting, the camera automatically adjusts to provide optimal exposure. Continuous-shot images can also be displayed, deleted and protected in groups.

Image stabilisation with Optical SteadyShot

Designed for handheld shooting and when shooting at telephoto zoom settings, even with high magnification, the camera's Optical SteadyShot feature stabilises the image and effectively reduces camera shake by relying on a high-performance gyro-sensor and a specialised algorithm. Because this is an optical function, image stabilisation is performed without lowering resolution. [1] SteadyShot OFF [2] SteadyShot ON
