Versatile 26X optical zoom
The X-5 incorporates a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor. With its top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and approximately 16.0 effective megapixels; it demonstrates remarkable high-sensitivity; low-noise characteristics and assures high-speed image data readout to deliver super-high-resolution images. The X-5 also features a state-of-the-art imaging engine. Supported by the latest Super Resolution technology; this engine offers outstanding image-processing performance to produce clear; high-quality images with well-defined details. In addition; its unique Handheld Night Scene shooting mode helps the photographer capture a blur-free night-time image by taking multiple images at once and synthesizing them into a single composite picture.
Dual Shake-Reduction system to assure sharp; blur-free images
