Sony CyberShot WX5
IFA 2010 Report - Beautifully slim, lightweight and easy to use, the Sony CyberShot WX5 boasts exciting new features for outstanding still picture quality compared with conventional compact cameras. Capable of shooting detail-packed Full HD (1920 x 1080, 50i) AVCHD movie clips, the Sony Cyber-shot WX5 is the first Cyber-shot camera that can capture amazing 3D images to enjoy on any 3D-compatible TV. For the first time ever, 3D Sweep Panorama lets you shoot incredible 3D images without needing a bulky, complex double-lens camera system. Just press the shutter button and the advanced Exmor R CMOS Sensor inside the Sony CyberShot WX5 captures a high-speed burst of frames as you sweep the camera from side to side.
Sony CyberShot WX5 camera with 3D function
Information from up to 100 images is automatically combined to create a stereoscopic pair of frames. You can enjoy the incredible results by connecting the camera via HDMI to your 3D-compatible TV. Sony CyberShot WX5 offers even more exciting 3D image possibilities. Also new this year, Sweep Multi Angle shoots a high-speed burst of fifteen frames, creating a ‘3D-style’ image of your subject that can be viewed from different angles. After shooting, just tilt the Sony WX5 from side to side: sensors inside the camera detect your movements, scrolling through the sequence of multi-angle frames as you tilt and view the camera’s LCD screen. Multi-angle views can also be viewed simultaneously on an ordinary 2D television as you tilt the camera.
12.2 megapixel Sony CyberShot DSC-WX5
The Sony CyberShot DSC-WX5 is the first Cyber-shot camera that can capture extremely low-noise images, evoking the expressive power of a digital SLR camera. Powered by the 12.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS Sensor, Superior Auto mode captures a high-speed burst of up to six frames when you press the shutter button. Camera settings are automatically optimised according to shooting conditions. The Sony Cyber-shot WX5 then combines information from each frame to create an exquisite, low-noise picture with wide dynamic range, as enjoyed by DSLR photo enthusiasts. A bright F2.4 lens on the Sony CyberShot WX5 enhances low light shooting even further.
Sony DSC-WX5 features Background Defocus
As an extra refinement, new Background Defocus makes it easy to achieve pro-style images, similar to the results achieved with a DSLR camera and wide-aperture lens. Sony DSC-WX5 rapidly shoots two frames when the shutter button is pressed. Position information between the foreground and background is analysed automatically, creating a single picture with your subject in sharp focus and a beautifully blurred background. New Soft Skin mode flatters portrait subjects even further, automatically removing small wrinkles and skin blemishes for effortlessly beautiful results.
