Sony Cyber-shot WX5 Overview & Highlights
Great Low-light Shots Without a Flash
Sometimes a flash can wash out the scene making it hard to capture the mood of the moment. For low-light environments, the back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor delivers stunning performance and increases sensitivity by 2x to reduce noise. Shots around the campfire never looked better. A Smarter Point-and-Shoot
Building on Intelligent Auto mode found in most Cyber-shot cameras, the WX5 features Superior Auto mode to effortlessly capture the perfect shot. This digital camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range and lower image noise. Background Defocus Made Easy
Take beautiful pictures with a blurred background and an emphasis on your subject. Equipped with Background Defocus, the WX5 delivers this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a digital defocus keeping your subject crisp and clear. Stunning Panorama Shots in 3D
Capture vast scenic vistas and 16:9 shots in spectacular 3D. As you sweep across the panorama, the camera records separate right-eye and left-eye images that make landscapes come alive on your compatible 3D television. Ultra-wide, 295-degree Panoramic Shots
Intelligent Sweep Panorama Mode (iSweep) reaches beyond the traditional wide angle lenses to let you capture expansive, breathtaking shots of landscapes or skyscrapers. Just press the shutter and shoot the scene with a sweeping motion. The camera does the rest. Shoot Your Movies in HD
