Loveable do-it-all.
Take your best shots yet. This camera's host of powerful yet user-friendly features makes it easy. Like a 16.2MP Exmor® R CMOS sensor that delivers richly-detailed photos and Full HD video—even in difficult low-light conditions. Zero in on distant subjects and snap high quality close-ups thanks to 8x optical zoom/16x Clear Image digital zoom. And with built-in Wi-Fi®, you can share your shots instantly with friends, family, Facebook® and more.

16x Clear Image zoom.
Zoom in close for great sports, travel, and wildlife photos. The WX80 boasts 8x optical zoom plus 16x Clear Image digital zoom technology to bring you near enough to capture distant details. A powerful processor reduces graininess for crisper, higher-quality close-ups.

Pixel power.
With a 16.2 megapixel Exmor® R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's superb quality Carl Zeiss® lens. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced processing technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images—even in challenging low-light conditions.

Share instantly with Wi-Fi.
Don't wait days to share great photos with your friends. With built-in Wi-Fi, you can share your shots on the spot with the PlayMemories app compatible with Android™ and iOS®. Upload pictures and videos to social media sites via your Wi-Fi-enabled smartphone or tablet, back up images on a network-connected PC or view content on your compatible TV. It's fun and easy.

Amazing HD videos.
Record crystal-clear, high-resolution movies with Full HD 1080/60i AVCHD™ video capture. Stunning, fast-motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV. Notice a perfect photo op while shooting video? With dual record, you can shoot both stills and video at the same time.

Say goodbye to blur.
Don't let a not-so-steady hand prevent you from capturing the moment. Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for camera shake by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Get sharp, blur-free footage in otherwise unsteady situations, like shooting video while walking.

Don't be afraid of the dark.
Take beautiful, blur-free photos in dark settings—even if your subject is moving—thanks to the newly enhanced Superior Auto mode. Even when shooting in challenging lighting conditions (like while indoors or at sunset), you'll enjoy crisper, clearer, higher definition photos with less grain.
