Fun: Greater picture-taking enjoyment

The more shots you take, the more you'll enjoy photo expression.

Close-ups 1 cm from subject.
Macro shooting functions

Using photo expression techniques such as background blurring, capture a beautiful world that goes unnoticed until it is magnified. Macro shooting will teach you new ways to enjoy photography. Getting as close as 1 cm for wide-angle * and 28 cm for telephoto *, you can enjoy shooting powerful images that are only possible with macro.

  • *31 mm equivalent for wide-angle and 300 mm equivalent for telephoto.

The minimum shooting distance, which changes depending on the zoom setting, can be checked on the monitor.

Support for shooting creativity.
AE/AF target shift functions

In both normal and macro shooting, the AE (exposure) and AF (focus) targets can be shifted alone or together to any position on the screen. This enables you to take the desired shot by changing focus and exposure settings without moving the camera, even if it is fixed to a tripod.

Responding to your creative urge:
Twelve scene modes

Easy-to-use scene modes provide shooting techniques to match the scene. To widen the scope of your creative fun, the CX2 adds new scene modes with unique effects. Subject faces are automatically detected and focus, exposure, and white balance adjusted.

Miniaturize NEW!

Blurring the top and bottom areas of the image makes it possible to photograph actual scenes but record images that recreate the impression given when photographing miniatures. This mode is effective when shooting from a high vantage point while looking down at a diagonal.

Miniaturize

High-contrast B&W NEW!

 

Portrait ENHANCED!

 
Intensifying contrast to a level higher than normal black & white mode makes it possible to record images with a grainy feel such as that created by using ultra-high-sensitivity film in a film camera or by push processing film at the development stage.   Subject faces are automatically detected and focus, exposure, and white balance adjusted.
High-contrast B&W   Portrait

Manner NEW!

 

Nightscape

 

Night portrait

 
Flash, AF auxiliary light, and operation sounds are turned off regardless of the settings. This is convenient when shooting in museums and other public buildings.   Use when shooting night scenes.   Use when taking portrait pictures against a nightscape.  
 

Landscape

 

Sports

 

High sensitivity

 
Use when taking scenery pictures with abundant greenery or blue sky.   Use when taking pictures of moving people/objects.   Use when taking pictures in dimly lit places. The picture display also becomes brighter.  
 

Zoom macro

 

Skew correction

Text

 
Automatically optimizes the zoom position to shoot the subject larger than with normal macro shooting.   Use to straighten a rectangular object (message board, business card, etc.) shot at an angle to make it look as if it were shot squarely.   Use to straighten a rectangular object (message board, business card, etc.) shot at an angle to make it look as if it were shot squarely.  

Shoot seven images with different focal distances.
Multi-target AF

Multi-target AF does high-speed consecutive shooting of seven images with different focal distances determined by the camera. It is effective for scenes (such as flowers) where there is a narrow range for a sharp focus. The camera automatically decides the seven focus points and does the high-speed consecutive shooting of seven images while shifting the focus to each point. After shooting, you can select the image with the preferred focus.

  • *Simulated image
  • *The continuously shot still images are recorded together as a single MP file. With MP file images recorded by the digital camera, a selected frame can be extracted and saved as an individual JPEG image within the camera.
