30x zoom lens with Zeiss quality built in
The result of over a century and a half of Zeiss expertise in high-precision optics is clear: this 24-720 mm2 lens renders portrait, close-up and landscape images in natural glory from every perspective with vivid sharpness and contrast intact. Zeiss T* multi-layer anti-reflective coating effectively eliminates surface ghosting and flare.
Exmor R CMOS sensor for extra sensitivity
The more light is allowed to strike a sensor, the more appealing a resulting image will look. So the Exmor R CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels employs back-illuminated design to let four times more light in than a more conventional sensor, is twice as sensitive to light and even features Sony Column A/D Conversion technology to reduce image noise.
BIONZ X for more detail and less noise
To transform data from the Exmor R CMOS sensor into high-resolution images, the BIONZ X image processor integrates detail reproduction, diffraction-reducing and area-specific noise reduction technologies. This combination makes it possible to reproduce realistic images of true colours and textures with precision in real time.
Beauty Effect improves appearance
Retouch the appearance of people in photos quickly and intuitively. With the five modes of Beauty Effect, you can smooth skin, tone skin, dull overly glistening skin, widen eyes and brighten teeth — all in camera with no need for a PC. Your subjects will love how they can look almost magically enhanced in your portraits.
One-touch remote and one-touch sharing
One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.
180-degree tiltable LCD monitor for easy framing
The high-resolution LCD monitor on the camera back can be tilted up to 180 degrees. So when you’re in front of the camera, you can easily view the LCD monitor to check the framing before you shoot a selfie, for example. This flexibility also lets you comfortably maintain stress-free posture while monitoring a scene that you want to shoot at a low position.
P/A/S/M exposure modes and Photo Creativity
Express your vision of still images with Programmed AE (P)/Aperture priority (A)/Shutter-speed priority (S)/Manual (M) exposure modes. Use these to manually control exposure, to adjust background blur, for example. Photo Creativity also lets you make adjustments intuitively to change brightness, colour, vividness and other image characteristics.
More flexible movie formats
The XAVC S format captures movies detailing extra-smooth action and high-quality sound with fidelity to the original sources. Whether you’re shooting in XAVC S or high-definition AVCHD format, you can also simultaneously record another version of the same scene in a compressed, web-friendly MP4 format for convenient sharing.
Keep running strong
Don’t worry about depleting your camera battery while you’re on the road. The fully charged lithium-ion battery of the WX500 provides enough power to shoot approximately 400 stills or record approximately 75 minutes of movie footage, so you won’t miss out on an appealing photo opportunity.
Intelligent Active Mode keeps blur away
Have no fear of handheld movie shooting. Intelligent Active Mode, featuring Sony’s frame-analysis technology and 5-axis7 image stabilisation, compensates for camera shake. This mode reduces the blurriness that tends to occur in images when shooting handheld or shooting while chasing a subject in action.
