New to the CX4 is an advanced image stabilization system that supposedly reduces blur to a degree equivalent to utilizing a shutter speed 3.7 EV faster than is actually being employed. Also new is a “subject-tracking AF” autofocus system that automatically tracks the subject; a night landscape multi-shot mode that combines four exposures into a single photo; a creative shooting mode with camera effects; and a more portable body.
