* A method for developing photographic film in which developers intended for film of different type are used to produce unique colors.

Shoot Movies in Full HD HDMI 

While the camera can of course record Full HD (16:9) video at 30 fps, it also offers a High Speed Movie mode for recording slow-motion video and an Underwater Movie mode suited to underwater movie recording. Movie and Underwater Movie modes offer Movie SR (shake reduction), which can be used to reduce the effects of camera shake. Movie editing features within the camera let you split video or create movie stills from selected frames. The camera’s HDMI connector (Type D) lets you display movies on TVs and other devices.

Outdoor View Setting

The brightness of the LCD monitor can readily be adapted to changes in ambient lighting conditions for ease of viewing and an improved shooting experience. Brightness can be increased by up to two steps to make dark areas of the display easier to see in sunlight, or lowered by up to two steps to reduce glare for night photography.

The monitor in sunny conditions

Choose from 25 Shooting Modes.

The camera offers settings suited to every subject, including an Auto Picture mode that automatically identifies the subject type and chooses the appropriate mode, a Landscape mode for vivid shots of green trees or blue sky, a Surf and Snow mode suited to shots backed by brightly-lit beaches or mountain snows, and a Sports mode for shots of fast-moving subjects.

Underwater Mode.

Developed specifically for underwater photography, the WG-80’s Underwater mode reduces the blue color cast so often seen in pictures taken underwater and effectively adjusts contrast to compensate for diffuse underwater light.

Flash Off/Flash On.

In this mode, the camera takes two pictures each time the shutter button is pressed, one with the flash off and the other with it on, letting you concentrate on composition without fiddling with the controls.

* Available in Underwater Mode.

Take amazing macro photographs with the improved Digital Microscope mode.

With lighting provided by six LED lamps positioned around the lens, Digital Microscope mode supports super macro photography. At the default image size of 2M, the WG-80 offers up to 6.6× zoom for astonishing results that look almost like they were taken with a microscope. The WG-80 offers new image size options of up to 12M * that further enhance the potential of Digital Microscope mode with pictures that can be printed at large sizes or cropped during post-processing.

The LED lamps light automatically even during normal macro photography, ensuring that your subject is always well-lit. One of the attractions of the WG-series is that it lets you shoot from as close as 1 cm (0.03ft), letting you get much closer to your subject than an SLR or smartphone camera.

* Maximum zoom is 6.6× (combined optical and digital zoom) at the default image size of 2M, 1.8× (optical zoom) at sizes of 4M, 5M, and 12M.
