The toy camera mode is great for saturating colours and adding a vignetting to mimic the quality of a toy camera.

The camera's macro function produced a lot of detail, with an appropriate depth of field.

The landscape mode has produced vibrant colours and plenty of detail across the image.

The high contrast black and white mode produced a great grainy and old-fashioned styled photo.

Metering worked well across the camera's three modes, multi, spot and centre-weighted. This image was captured using spot metering.

Marketing Information

The CX6 boasts a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor combined with advanced Smooth Imaging Engine IV image processing. Poorly-lit indoor or night scenes are rendered in pure, unblemished quality, as of course are brightly-lit subjects. An output pixel interpolation algorithm residing in dedicated logic circuits in the imaging engine reduces loss of detail in highlights to faithfully recreate high-contrast scenes exactly as they appear to the naked eye.
