Video and photos are equally well served by this waterproof (up to 9.8 ft) wonder. Whether shooting HD video or 14MP stills, you're assured of capturing impressive high-quality images. The 15x Intelligent Zoom lets you get closer to your subject with no image degradation.
Waterproof to a Depth of 3 Meters
Take the HX-WA2 underwater as deep as 9.8 feet (3 meters) and get some great still or moving images in a pool or the ocean. Swim along with tropical fish, capture shots of a beautiful coral reef, or get action footage of a friend snorkeling. Waterproofing also means you can shoot in the rain or snow with no worries.
Bright HD Movie Recording
Even with its light weight and slim design, the HX-WA2 renders images in breathtaking, high-definition beauty. You can record clear images even when in dimly lit places--like indoors and at parties. You can preserve precious memories in stunning image quality for watching on a large-screen TV or sharing on the web.
15x Intelligent Zoom for Motion Image Shooting
In addition to an optical zoom, the HX-WA2 lets you shoot motion images with a maximum 15x Intelligent Zoom with no image quality degradation. You can get a flexible shooting range, from wide-angle to dynamic zooming.
iA (Intelligent Auto)
This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. With both motion and still images, iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images.
Intelligent Scene Selector
The Intelligent Scene Selector function analyzes the shooting situation and automatically switches the Dual Camera to the suitable scene mode that will give you optimal results. Scene modes are Portrait, Scenery, Spotlight, and Low Light, for a range of exposure options.
E.I.S. (Electrical Image Stabilizer)
The E.I.S. (Electrical Image Stabilizer) system helps to correct the kind of hand-shake blurring that often happens with compact cameras. Record all the images you want, whether you're shooting while walking, or taking self-portraits, without having to worry about blurring.
14MP Still Picture Recording
Shoot high-quality still images with 14MP resolution. Depending on the situation, you can flexibly shoot either high-quality photos or movies.
