Get the detail in 4K video
The WX970 is made to film in 4K. With four times the resolution than Full HD, video is captured in crisp detail.
When footage is down-converted to Full HD, the data will have even better definition and clarity than those filmed in Full-HD.
Recording in 4K resolution gives you greater flexibility when it comes to editing your video. Draw focus to specific actions and shape your stories with creative use of scale, pan and crops.
Capture the perfect moment
The 4K Photo function lets you capture those 'perfect' moments by extracting individual frames as 8 MP images.
Leica lens: made for 4K
A specially developed Leica Dicomar lens, with 20x optical zoom (in 4K), will help you find your perfect shot. For those who shoot from the hip, the WX970 has a superior focus speed.
Leica lens: no distortion
The Leica Dicomar lens is designed to alleviate distortion and minimise 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.
Smoother more stable shots
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 stabilises your footage, automatically compensating blur from camera zooms and walking.
Twin Camera: two points of view

The WX970 has an additional camera on the side of the display to help you capture different points of view, or provide narration for your footage. Video appears as picture-in-picture, and the camera also features an electrical zoom and dedicated titling.

- Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
