Beauty: Image quality at the level of art
Breathtaking imaging power, ready response.
Smooth Imaging Engine IV + CMOS sensor
Great image quality, and a deeply satisfying shooting feel every time you pick it up. By combining advanced image processing engine Smooth Imaging Engine IV with a CMOS sensor capable of high-speed image processing, the CX2 provides both intelligent image processing and superior response speed. Able to shoot superior-quality images with both high definition and low noise, it turns everyday scenes into beautiful photographs.
Suppress whiteout to recreate the beauty the eye sees.
Pixel output interpolation algorithm
Resident on a customized circuit of the image processing engine, the pixel output interpolation algorithm makes it possible to faithfully capture the excitement you see with your eyes. By using interpolation techniques on the output of overexposed areas, the CX2 is able to suppress whiteout in high-contrast situations.
The simple solution to overexposure/underexposure.
Dynamic range double shot
Dynamic range double shot mode is effective in high-contrast scenes. Overexposure and underexposure are suppressed by shooting, consecutively at high speed, two still images with different exposures, and then recording an image that combines the properly exposed portions of each. To the existing four dynamic range expansion effect settings ("Very Weak" to "Strong"), the CX2 adds the new AUTO setting where the camera decides the optimum exposure difference. Now it is even easier to enjoy dynamic range expansion up to a maximum equivalent to 12 EV.
Natural colors for both subject and background.
Multi-pattern auto white balance
It can be difficult to define a white balance for scenes mixing different light sources, such as when shooting indoors with flash or when shooting scenes with both sunlight and shadow. Multi-pattern auto white balance sets the white balance to fit the light source of each segregated area, thereby surpassing the past method (an average setting for the entire image) to reproduce color tones closer to those seen by the eye.
Express yourself in a slightly different flavor.
Aspect ratio 1:1 square format photography mode
Convenient for blog photographs, aspect ratio 1:1 square format photography mode lets you try a different mode of expression with a square format like that used by medium format cameras.
