The rugged exterior style of the earlier DIGIMAX V700 has been transformed into a softer, more elegant, but equally strong styling for the new DIGIMAX V800.
The graceful new styling gives the DIGIMAX V800 a firm, confident and comfortable feeling in the hands of beginners and professional alike.
The DIGIMAX V800 has a high resolution large LCD so you can take pictures while viewing subjects on the big, clear screen. The large LCD makes this camera a perfect substitute for a camcorder particularly for users who frequently use movie functions.
The DIGIMAX V800 provides convenient function and setting buttons that can be used simply and easily with just one hand. In addition, its small pocket-sized body enables you to grip the camera firmly. You can operate the camera buttons easily in any situation.
The DIGIMAX V800 employs the 3x optical zoom Schneider VARIOPLAN. The Schneider VARIOPLAN lens is among the world's finest in terms of processing and design. It corrects aberrations of colour and distortion. In addition, this multi-coating lens reduces the flare and ‘ghost’ images that have a negative impact on picture quality.
The manual functions of a digital camera enable you to be more creative when shooting images. Aperture Priority mode (A) allows you to control the depth of field, and is useful for emphasizing the subject whilst softening the background, for example when shooting portraits or close-ups. Shutter Priority mode (S) allows you to control shutter speed and is useful for capturing fast action such as a moving baby, or traces of light at night, so that you can get clearer and sharper images. Furthermore, Manual mode (M) allows you to set both shutter and aperture manually, thus enabling you to manipulate images like advanced users. The DIGIMAX V800 provides enhanced manual functions so that you can capture images the way you want.
The DIGIMAX V800 Auto Macro is one of the functions aimed at user convenience. In Auto Macro, the camera automatically sets the focus when you take shots at very short range. Nowadays people enjoy taking pictures of themselves when taking this type of picture, the images are sometimes blurred because the distance between the camera and the subject is too close. Also, when taking pictures of subjects such as flowers without setting the Macro mode, the images taken are sometimes not clear. However, the DIGIMAX V800 automatically sets the Macro function for a subject that is really close, eliminating the need for manual setting.
