Sony India has announced the launch of DSC-WX800, the first in the series of new travel high-zoom cameras. The cameras are designed for users who want an unobtrusive camera that can be carried at all times and offer a versatile zoom range from 24mm at the wide end up to 720mm at the telephoto end. The camera can also record 4K2 movie footages.
The 18.2 megapixel camera is powered by a BIONZ X image processing engine combined with an Exmor R CMOS Sensor with front-end LSI that delivers high-speed continuous shooting at up to 10 fps with a buffer limit of up to 155 images. These new models also offer a fast AF speed of 0.09 seconds.
The camera features a ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-720mm lens. The camera features Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation. The models are also equipped with a Zoom Assist function that allows the user to zoom out temporarily and displays a wider area when shooting a subject at the telephoto end.
The WX800 can capture 4K2 video footage with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. This means that fine details are beautifully rendered and ‘moiré’ and ‘jaggies’ are significantly reduced. The new models can shoot fast-moving subjects with high-frame rate HD recording at up to 100fps to produce impressive slow-motion sequences during editing.
With a Fast Intelligent AF speed of just 0.09 seconds and an upgraded BIONZ X processor and front-end LSI, the WX800 are a perfect fit, delivering high speed continuous shooting at up to 10fps with a buffer limit of up to 155 images. For beautifully focused portraits, the new models inherit the much praised Eye AF technology from their α siblings and for photographers who prefer to enhance their photos with image editing software.
Versatile operability and shooting capabilities including Touch Focus/Touch Shutter, 180-degree Tiltable LCD and location data acquisition via Bluetooth. A 180-degree tiltable LCD screen allows for easy framing of selfies and group shots.
The new DSC-WX800 is available across all Sony Centres, Alpha Flagship stores and major electronic stores across India at an MRP of Rs. 34,990.
