Product Highlights

  • 30x zoom lens with ZEISS® quality built in :The result of over a century and a half of ZEISS expertise in high-precision optics is perfectly clear: this 24-720mm5 lens renders portrait, close-up, and landscape images in natural glory from every perspective, with vivid sharpness and contrast intact. ZEISS T* multi-layer anti-reflective coating effectively eliminates surface ghosting and flare.
  • Exmor R™ CMOS sensor for extra sensitivity: The more light is allowed to strike a sensor, the more brilliant a resulting image will look. So the Exmor R CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels employs back-illuminated design to let four times more light in than a more conventional sensor, is twice as sensitive to light, and even features Sony Column A/D Conversion technology to reduce image noise.
  • BIONZ X™ for more detail and less noise: To transform data from the Exmor R CMOS sensor into high-resolution images, the BIONZ X image processor integrates detail reproduction, diffraction-reducing and area-specific noise reduction technologies. This combination makes it possible to reproduce realistic images of truer colours and textures with exceptional precision in real time.
  • 180-degree tiltable LCD monitor for easy framing:The high-resolution LCD monitor on the camera back can be tilted up to 180 degrees. So when you're in front of the camera, you can easily view the LCD monitor to check the framing before you shoot a selfie, for example. This flexibility also lets you comfortably maintain stress-free posture while monitoring a scene that you want to shoot at a low position.
  • Beauty Effect improves appearance:Retouch the appearance of people in photos quickly and intuitively. With the five modes of Beauty Effect, you can smooth skin, tone skin, dull overly glistening skin, widen eyes and brighten teeth — all in camera, with no need for a PC. Your subjects will love how they can look almost magically enhanced in your portraits.

Lots of Great features

The Zoom is amazing for such a compact camera.Lots of features which you find on a SLR .Having difficulty sharing photos to my phone but its probably just me overall very happy

Great little camera

One of the best cameras ever owed. Features such as 'panorama' are excellent. One slightly negative issue is that it is hard to see the framed picture in the screen in strong sun light.

Great features and easy to use

Only used this a few times since buying in the past month, but impressed. Previously had a Sony DSC-HX20V, which started playing up, and this is an improvement, particularly impressive is the 30x zoom combined with the steady shot function - allows very detailed shots. The usual range of functions and guidance make it easy to use and its small size makes it easy to carry about. So far so good!!

Fantastic Camera

I bought a white WX500 and it looks amazing. You can connect the camera to a Xperia smartphone aswell using NFC or WiFi which is a nice little feature. The 30x optical zoom is fantastic as you can zoom into any subject and still get high quality photos. The screen makes it so much easier to take photos from more difficult angles. I've had this camera for a couple of days and I highly recommend it, much better than most phone cameras I've used and it's very good value for money.
