Powerful and compact, it's ready to go where you go
The world's smallest camera with 24-720mm zoom, the WX800 has Fast Intelligent AF and responsive Eye AF to help capture even distant subjects beautifully, while built-in Wi-Fi®/NFC™ makes sharing easy.
Impressive zoom range
The world's smallest compact camera with 24-720mm zoom
With high-magnification ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens
Despite its compact size the camera offers a broad zoom range, from wide-end 24mm to 720mm telephoto, and with Clear Image Zoom the subject can be magnified while effectively preserving high resolution, at up to 1440mm.
Optical SteadyShot for high-quality images
 SteadyShot OFF  SteadyShot ON
The WX800's sophisticated algorithms and high-performance gyro-sensor work together to compensate for camera shake. This provides a significant reduction in shake even with hand-held shooting at high zoom magnifications.
Zoom Assist for easy framing of moving subjects
Zoom Assist enables fast, easy framing of moving subjects at telephoto range. Assign a custom button to this function and, when it’s pressed, the camera will temporarily zoom back out so you can find your subject and quickly reframe.
Clear, beautiful images
High-resolution 4K1 2 video and high-quality still images
Advanced imaging technology provides superior image quality in both videos and still shots. From natural-looking portraits to vibrant images even in dim lighting conditions, you'll get beautiful images suited to your shooting conditions.
Beautiful depiction of fine textures
Advanced image-processing technology delivers high-resolution images with low noise
The back-illuminated Exmor RTM CMOS sensor, with 18.2-megapixel5 effective resolution, and the advanced BIONZ XTM image-processing system work together to reduce noise at high ISO settings like ISO6400 (expanded). Fine textures are accurately reproduced, and even dimly lit scenes can be beautifully shot. Colour reproduction is also improved, especially for human skin tones.
4K1 2 video recording captures fine details
4K videos (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) recorded with full pixel readout and no pixel binning
The camera records approx. 1.6 times as much information as is required for 4K video output, resulting in outstanding resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies. Videos also accurately reproduce textures and fine details to an extent not possible with full HD.
Fast AF performance
Capture special moments when they happen
Speedy AF, combined with 10fps (max.)6 continuous shooting, helps you keep up with fast-moving subjects, making it easier to capture those decisive action shots.
Fast Intelligent AF with 0.09-second7 response
The WX800's spatial subject detection algorithm and fast lens drive help capture even fleeting moments. The algorithm predicts the focus point, then as the shutter button is half-pressed the AF quickly focuses on the subject.
Eye AF for perfect portrait shots
The Eye AF feature automatically detects and focuses on the eyes of the main subjects. It performs well even under difficult conditions, such as when the subject is looking downward or when faces are backlit or dimly lit.
High-speed continuous shooting at up to 10fps
High-speed continuous shooting at up to 10fps6
Shoot continuous images for up to 155 frames8
When you're following fast-moving action you'll appreciate the camera's impressive continuous shooting capabilities. Continuously shot images can also be displayed, deleted and protected in groups.
Easy and convenient features
Taking selfies and sharing shots are easier than ever
The camera's rotating LCD screen helps you check the composition of self-portrait shots before you shoot, and the One-touch sharing feature lets you transfer photos to your mobile device, for easier sharing with friends.
Touch functions that are simple and intuitive
Touch Focus lets you set the focus simply by touching the monitor. You can also trip the shutter by touching the LCD screen.
A 180° tiltable LCD screen for easier selfies
The 3.0-type Extrafine LCD screen, with 922k-dot5 resolution, can be rotated upwards by around 180° so you can quickly check the composition of self-portraits or souvenir photos with friends.
Flexible My Menu feature
With My Menu, you can register up to 30 menu items for instant recall, and create your own custom menus. You can also delete items and change their order, to build an easy-to-use menu that meets your specific needs.
Easy wireless sharing with the PlayMemories MobileTM app
You can remotely control the camera's shutter, zoom and other operations from a smartphone or tablet device, and also transfer still photos and videos wirelessly. And, using a Bluetooth® connection to your smartphone, it’s even possible to automatically geo-tag your images with your shooting location.
