Sweep, shoot and play it all in stunning 3D panoramic splendour. It's that easy. The new Cyber-shot WX5 introduces a host of incredible features that are easy to use, and even easier to enjoy. Take one with you everywhere, every day and start having fun capturing more fun.
Capture panoramic views in 3D
Take panoramic 3D pictures with your Cyber-shot camera with just a sweep of your hand, then play them back on a compatible 3D TV and you’ll be amazed by the depth, clarity and realism. This is true 3D photography, all from a single-lens, compact camera – a world first from Sony.
The Sweep Multi Angle function lets you take 3D-like pictures of your friends and then share them using the camera’s unique playback technology. Tilting the camera from left to right animates the image on your camera’s LCD screen and gives you a real sense of what the final 3D image may look like - without the need for a 3D TV or 3D glasses.
Photography in low light conditions is notoriously difficult because you get grainy pictures that lack detail. With the Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor your Cyber-shot camera captures more light and eliminates the need for use of harsh flash light.
True-to-life color & fast shooting response
The BIONZ™ image processor fast processing capability enables unique Sony features such as Sweep Panorama to take and combine multiple images in less than a second. You'll get clear, detailed, low-noise images and quick, responsive shooting.
Cleaner and sharper image
Enjoy clearner and sharper images with the outstanding G Lens which combine superb clarity and sharpness with exquiste defocusing characteristic.
Capture stunning full HD videos at 1920 x 1080i with your Cyber-shot WX5. Enjoy the amazing life-like images and be impressed by the vivid colours and details of every scene. The easy compatibility of AVCHD movies also helps expand post-shooting possibilities.
You can easily playback your movies on PLAYSTATION®3 and Blue-ray Disc recorders as well as TVs and PCs. The video footage you captured is also compatible with a whole host of software, making editing your movies a breeze.
DSLR-style picture quality
Now you can enjoy DSLR-style picture quality, but without the size and weight of a DSLR camera.
Easy Just Got Easier
Superior Auto Mode automatically selects optimal settings for shooting conditions, making it easy to achieve superior digital-SLR-like expression. It intelligently combines up to 6 images for stunning results with low noise and high dynamic range. All you need to do is simply press the shutter button for outstanding photos.
Take perfect portraits with Background Defocus
An attractive, natural-looking background blur is one of the hallmarks of professional level DSLR photography. Now you can add this feature to your photos and create perfect compositions without the need for expensive lenses or complicated camera settings. Just choose from three levels of background blur – your camera will automatically do the rest.
