Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close.
The 28mm wide-angle* on the HX-WA20 fits more people and more of the background into the frame than conventional models. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. It fits your subjects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the mic.

Delivers an exceptional high-sensitivity performance.
High Sensitivity BSI Sensor
The sensitivity of the CMOS sensor has been improved by BSI (Backside Illumination) sensor technology, so you can record clear images even when in dimly lit places - like indoors and at parties.
- Insufficient sensitivity makes the image dark and produces noise.
- You get bright, high-quality images with minimal noise.
High-quality photos and videos.
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.
Sharpens details and enhances smooth areas.
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.
