CX2

Ease: Create images with easy operations.

Now it is easier than ever to create your own distinctive beauty.

Beautiful images are easy even for first-time users.
Improved easy shooting mode

With easy shooting mode, you can take beautiful pictures with few mistakes by letting the camera handle the settings. When the mode dial is turned to EASY, you can relax and enjoy shooting while the camera automatically matches the settings to the situation (detecting faces, switching to macro mode, etc.).

Automatic face recognition

Automatic face recognition NEW!

When faces are detected during shooting *, the CX2 shoots the image with the focus, exposure, and white balance optimized for the faces. Compared to the old face mode, there have been major increases in recognition speed and the number of faces detectable.

  • *A maximum of eight subject faces can now be detected.
  • *Not guaranteed to work in all photographic conditions.

Macro mode automatic switching

Macro mode automatic switching

When shooting subjects up close, the camera automatically switches to macro mode so you can enjoy macro photography without the inconvenience of mode switching.

  • *Minimum shooting distance at maximum wide-angle (28 mm equivalent) is approx. 8 cm.

Blur reduction of both hand motion and subject motion.
Blur reduction functions

The image sensor shift blur reduction function reduces the hand-motion blurring that tends to occur in situations such as telephoto and macro shooting. When blurring is detected, the CMOS sensor automatically compensates by shifting in a direction that eliminates the blur. For lowlight scenes (indoors, twilight, etc.), subject blurring can be reduced using auto high sensitivity, which enables fasters shutter speeds by raising the maximum ISO sensitivity level. These functions can help you to capture the ambiance of the scene as you see it.

  • *Blur reduction functions are not guaranteed to work in all photographic conditions

Choose the best shot after shooting.
Four bracketing functions

Bracketing functions shoot multiple images while changing the shooting settings. Spared from having to make subtle setting adjustments, from multiple images you just select the one best matching your creative intentions.

Focus bracketing

The automatic continuous shooting of five images while changing the focus position by specified intervals. The focus position intervals can be specified as (Wide) or (Narrow).

Color bracketing

Automatically records three images (color, black and white, and sepia) giving very different impressions. In addition to the regular color image, you can enjoy the play of light and shadow in a black and while image and the nostalgic feel of a sepia tone image.

Auto bracketing

Automatically shoots three consecutive shots at three exposure levels (-0.5EV, ±0EV, +0.5EV) based on the set exposure level.

White balance bracketing

Automatically records three images: a reddish image, a bluish image, and an image at the currently set white balance. This is convenient when it is difficult to judge the proper white balance.

The image flag function enables quick display of specific images from among those in the camera. With the CX2, up to 20 image files can be flagged (previous maximum was 3). Flagged images can be promptly displayed by pressing the Fn (function) button so it is very easy and convenient to flag maps and timetable images for later reference and flag favorite photos for showing other people.

Up to 20 image files can be flagged. Image flag function

  • *Simulated image

Still images shot by the camera can be trimmed and saved in a separate file. In addition to the existing 4:3 aspect ratio trimming frame, the CX2 adds a 1:1 square-format frame.

Image trimming now easier and more flexible. Still image trimming

Correct brightness and contrast in the camera.
Level compensation

The brightness and contrast of still images can be automatically or manually corrected in the camera without using a PC. With manual correction, the histogram can be finely adjusted until the image faithfully reflects the photographer's intentions.

Correction can be done by moving the position of the points under the histogram.
