- High-Quality Image Engine - This High-Quality Image Engine enables both excellent image quality and a compact body. Its image-processing algorithms and architecture were designed for high-speed processing, signal processing systems were optimized for noise reduction, and power consumption was reduced. In addition to providing motion judgment for the noise elimination process, the 3D Digital Noise Reduction function also lowers random noise. By allotting the bit rate for the noise consuming component to the video signal, compression efficiency is improved for crisp, clear videos.
- Intelligent Resolution Technology - The High-Quality Image Engine has evolved with original Intelligent Resolution Technology. This new technology confirms the edges of objects within the image, then emphasizes the edges for optimal clarity. Conversely, it reduces noise and enhances the natural smoothness of parts without edges, like the sky. The increased sharpness is especially effective for images with delicate details. This highly advanced technology maximizes the beauty of Full-HD images.
- Bright and Stunning Full-HD Video Recording - The HX-WA2 renders images in breathtaking, Full-HD (1920 x 1080) beauty, so you can save your memories in stunning image quality and watch them on a large-screen TV.
- Intelligent 15x Zoom and Active E.I.S. - In addition to an optical 5x zoom, the New High-Quality Image Engine of the HX-WA2 lets you shoot videos with a maximum 15x Intelligent Zoom with no image quality degradation. Active E.I.S. enables handheld zooming without blurring. You get a flexible shooting range, from wide-angle to dynamic zooming.
- iA (Intelligent Auto) for Video Recording - This powerful function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images.
- Stereo Microphone - The HX-WA2 uses a waterproof microphone speaker that lets sound pass through while keeping water out. It lets you record videos with lifelike stereo sound virtually anywhere, even underwater.
- 14-Megapixel Still Picture Recording - The HX-WA2 captures even tiny details in 14-megapixel high-resolution still pictures. Depending on the situation, you can flexibly shoot either high-quality 14-megapixel photos or Full-HD videos. You can also capture 2-megapixel still images while recording a video by simply pressing the Still button.
- Panorama Mode - Panorama makes it is possible to shoot a horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous picture.
- Burst Shooting - This function lets the camcorder snap up to 10 consecutive 3-megapixel still images, which are fired off at 1-second intervals for a total of 40 continuous images in about 4 seconds. You can use it to get good shots of subjects in fast motion. Just fire off a number of shots without stopping, then keep the best ones and delete the rest.
- High-Speed Reverse Consecutive Shooting - The High-Speed Reverse Consecutive Shooting function continues to capture images while the Still button is pressed, and then, by releasing the button when the desired scene ends, the data that was input just prior to the button release is recorded onto the Built-in Memory as consecutive images. This lets you preserve important memories without missing out on those split-second shutter opportunities.
- iA (Intelligent Auto) for Still Picture Recording - The iA function is active even when shooting still images. When the Intelligent Scene Selector detects the shooting situation, it optimizes the settings for the still image.
- Macro Shooting - Get as close as 1 cm when shooting small objects such as flowers or accessories. Enjoy creative shooting with high-resolution photos.
- Nine-point Auto Focus - The HX-WA2 automatically focuses on your subject with its nine-point auto focus, even if it isn't located in the center of the frame. This prevents your shots from going out of focus.
- Manual Shooting - Select the exposure compensation, aperture priority, and manual mode to shoot.
This allows manual shooting to match the situation.
- MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 - MPEG-4 files are widely used because they combine video and sound in the same file. As a result, the files can be quickly and easily saved onto a PC and then uploaded onto blogs or social networking sites to share with friends and family.
- iFrame Mode - The HX-WA2 lets you record videos in the iFrame. With iFrame, the video in your camera is the same format you'll edit, so it's fast to import and edit with compatible video editing software. iFrame is based on standards, so it works with a number of applications ― such as iMovie.
- Eye-Fi Card Compatibility - By using the Eye-Fi card, you can save files recorded on a card to a PC of file-sharing site via a wireless network. You can direct transport the data to your device (smartphone, tablet etc.) without connecting another access point.
