With high-magnification ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens

Despite its compact size the camera offers a broad zoom range, from wide-end 24mm to 720mm telephoto, and with Clear Image Zoom the subject can be magnified while effectively preserving high resolution, at up to 1440mm.

Optical SteadyShotTM for high-quality images

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.

High-resolution 4K video and high-quality still images

Advanced imaging technology provides superior image quality in both videos and still shots. From natural-looking portraits to vibrant images even in dim lighting conditions, you'll get beautiful images suited to your shooting conditions.

Advanced image-processing technology delivers high-resolution images with low noise

The back-illuminated Exmor RTM CMOS sensor, with 18.2-megapixel effective resolution, and the advanced BIONZ XTM image-processing system work together to reduce noise at high ISO settings like ISO6400 (expanded). Fine textures are accurately reproduced, and even dimly lit scenes can be beautifully shot. Colour reproduction is also improved, especially for human skin tones.

4K video recording captures fine details

4K videos (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) recorded with full pixel readout and no pixel binning

The camera records approx. 1.6 times as much information as is required for 4K video output, resulting in outstanding resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies. Videos also accurately reproduce textures and fine details to an extent not possible with full HD.

Fast AF performance

Capture special moments when they happen

Speedy AF, combined with 10fps (max.) continuous shooting, helps you keep up with fast-moving subjects, making it easier to capture those decisive action shots. 

Fast Intelligent AF with 0.09-second response

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

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.

High-speed continuous shooting at up to 10fps
