WX500 Compact Camera with 30x Optical Zoom
Improve your selfie, and take it easily, too. A 180-degree tiltable LCD monitor makes it simple to see how you look in the frame. Meet the new Sony WX500 — the world’s smallest camera to contain the far-reaching performance of a ZEISS® 30x optical zoom lens. With so much creative capability at hand to shoot for fun, you'll capture more star quality in every image.
The synergy of a higher-performance CMOS image sensor, lightning-quick image processor and legendary lens pack the latest optical and engineering advancements into an amazingly compact form.
The Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar® T* 30x optical zoom lens extends a legacy of high-precision optics to capture clear, sharp, undegraded images throughout a 24–720 mm range.
Legendary ZEISS quality delivers brilliant sharpness, rich contrast and minimal distortion.
A back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels takes in more light for greater detail in every shot.
Now reproducing more realistic detail and colour in images with less diffraction and noise.
Now, it's easier than ever to shoot for a look that you like in selfies, portraits and everything else with the flexibility that a full-tilt LCD monitor, customisable functions and easy photo retouching provide.
The high-resolution LCD monitor on the camera back can be tilted up to 180 degrees, so you can comfortably frame a selfie prior to shooting it or shoot at a low position.
To retouch the appearance of people in photos, you can use Beauty Effect to smooth skin, tone skin, dull overly glistening skin, widen eyes and brighten teeth — all in camera.
Photo Creativity mode lets you alter the appearance of stills and movies with simple, intuitive changes to settings for brightness, colour, vividness and Picture Effect.
Six customisable buttons/keys include the Function button that can be assigned up to 12 frequently used functions, and five buttons/keys that can be assigned one function each.
An improved spatial object detection algorithm realises a more optimal and accurate lens drive to make AF even faster, for capturing more fleeting moments with ease.
Whether you want to share action quickly or save it at a higher resolution for editing, it's simple to make format, mode, exposure and other settings, then start to record.
Record in XAVC S or AVCHD high-resolution movie format and as MP4 file.
Intelligent Active Mode w. 5-axis image stabilisation + frame analysis.
With its high battery capacity, connectivity for mobile sharing and smart, compact design, the Sony WX500 is extraordinarily easy to take and have fun with over the long run, wherever you go.
Hold your power — live long, work hard, stay strong
A full battery lets you take approx. 400 stills or record 75 minutes of movie footage to make sure that you won't miss a good chance to shoot.
