    Leica lens: made for 4K

    Generations of photographers have known the name and quality that it brings to your photographs when a Leica lens is involved. By adding a specifically developed Leica Dicomar 20x optical zoom lens, you will always be able to find your perfect shot. Increased color saturation, greater detail are all captured by legendary Leica glass. Focus speed has also been exponentially increased providing faster subject lock–on even for those who shoot from the hip, the WX970 has a superior focus speed. The Leica Dicomar lens is designed to alleviate distortion and minimize ghosting and flare. It provides excellent resolution even when footage is enlarged, so your shots are always crisp and clear.

    HDR Video: Perfect Exposure

    When filming in high contrast environments, such as indoors or in bright sunshine, footage can be underexposed in some areas and over in others. Backgrounds look bleached and subjects in the foreground appear in shadow. The WX970 captures footage in HDR, blending different exposures together to create completely balanced video.

    Hybrid O.I.S.

    A number of features are built into the WX970 to counteract unwanted movement. Level Shot Function detects tilt and automatically corrects footage. But sometimes you might want a 'handheld' effect so there are three settings: strong, normal and off. The 5–Axis HYBRID O.I.S+ feature also stabilizes your footage, automatically compensating blur from camera zooms and walking.

    Twin Camera: Two Points of View

    The WX970 offers a unique feature for the budding videographer: an additional camera on the side of the display to help you capture different points of view, or provide narration for your footage. Video shot with the secondary lens and sensor appears as picture–in–picture, and the camera also features a digital zoom and dedicated tilting.
