Sony is well known for its cyber-shot range of cameras. The DSC-HX200V is one of the more popular range of cameras built.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 is an ultra-compact camera that doesn’t trade performance for style. It’ll fit in a tight spot, but still packs Sony’s 18.2MP sensor capable of a maximum ISO3200 standard sensitivity, paired with the latest BIONZ X processor. These days optical zoom reach is a key selling point over most smart phone cameras, and the DSC-WX220 manages to pack in a 10x lens with a versatile 25-250mm zoom range (in 35mm camera terms). Sony’s Optical Steady Shot image stabilization system is included too, so you should get sharp shots throughout the zoom range or in low light. The camera isn’t short on features either, with thirteen effect filters and Full HD video capture with stereo sound. There’s Wi-Fi connectivity thrown in as well, so you can transfer photos or even control the camera remotely. The R CMOS sensor coupled with BIONZ X Image Processor is an excellent combination that composes excellent images. The Sony G lens on this camera has 10x optical zoom that is paired with 20 x clear image zoom. This is a considerable expanse of reach from wide-angle to super-telephoto.
This zoom range can effectively be doubled, too, using the 20x Clear Image Zoom that employs an intelligent interpolation algorithm to increase zoom magnification with minimal image quality loss. Connecting to Wi-Fi along with smart phone connectivity coupled with one-touch sharing is common in cameras. It also has NFC3 control, near field communication and the convenience when transferring images to Android smart phones and tablets is something that you cannot come across everyday. This camera can capture Full HD 1080 AVCHD videos at 60 and 30 frames per second, providing for fast motion video with less distortion when playing back on HDTV sets. The camera also has Optical Steady Shot Image Stabilization that offers compensation to reduce the blurring effects of camera movement when shooting at slower shutter speeds. It also has 10 frames per second in full 18.2 MP resolution and also has Lock-On AF, which provides the ability to focus on multiple points with subject recognition. Interestingly, the camera features Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode that carries Sony's Sweep Panorama function to the next level with the addition of motion compensation. The panorama function is available in wide as well as 360 degree full circle.
