It automatically combines images from high-speed continuous shooting according to shooting conditions to create gorgeous photos. Users can easily take sophisticated photos at the press of the shutter button, thanks to the automatic activation of functions such as HDR technology for high-contrast conditions, High Speed Night Scene mode for night shots, and High Speed Anti Shake for high-power zoom shooting.
The HS Night Shot function merges images taken with high-speed continuous shooting to produce bright, sharply focused shots of scenes that appear dark to the naked eye, without using a flash. HS Night Shot can deliver images with sensitivity up to the equivalent of ISO12800, through processing that aligns continuous shooting images, reduces noise and combines the images.
EX-ZS300's Art Shot function offers 7 different effects for creating impressively artistic photos, including toy camera, soft focus, light tone, pop art, sepia, black & white and miniature effects.
