Sony DSC-WX150

on 2/28/2013

I have a DSLR camera for serious shooting, but there are times when I would like to have a pocket-size camera. This WX150 is very packed with a lot of nice features and a 10x optical zoom in a very small body. Panorama mode works in both horizontal and vertical directions. The partial color in "picture effect" is pretty cool too. 18 megapixels is for 4:3 format. The camera does not have 3:2 format. If (manually) crop down to 3:2, the resolution would be 16 megapixels.

Not so friendly video files.

on 3/8/2013

This camera creates a video file that is left behind when you import your 'pictures' into iPhoto. You have to go thru another process, and find your own way store and catalog your video files. All of my other cameras have just 'worked' with iPhoto.

Product Overview

Make it Snappy

Capture the fast action and fleeting moments that other cameras miss. This super slim Cyber-shot® DSC-WX150 camera boasts high speed auto focus for quick, DSLR-like focusing speeds. Shoot up to 10 frames per second, the perfect feature for sports or capturing a sequence of your toddler's somersault. With a premium 18.2MP Exmor® R CMOS sensor and ultra-stabilized 20x Clear Image digital zoom, you can snap stunning close-ups and crisp, clear Full HD 1080/60i video—even in difficult low-light conditions.

Pixel Power

With an 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's sharp Sony G lens. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced processing reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images—even in challenging low-light conditions.

Focus Faster

Focusing is faster than ever thanks to the collaboration of four technologies: an advanced Sony G lens, Exmor R CMOS sensor, a newly-developed BIONZ® image processor and optimized focus processing. The result? Tack-sharp focus in as little as 0.1 seconds, so you never miss a shot.

20x Clear Image Zoom

Zoom in close for great sports, wildlife and travel photos. The WX150 combines 10x optical zoom with Clear Image digital zoom technology to offer 20x total zoom. Powerful By Pixel Super Resolution processing technology reduces graininess for crisper, more realistic, higher-quality images—even in close-ups.

Amazing HD Movies

Record crystal-clear movies at the highest resolution available with Full HD 1080/60i AVCHD™ video capture1. Stunning, fast-motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV2. Notice a perfect photo opp while shooting video? With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.

Never Miss a Moment

Capture up to 10 frames per second at full 18.2MP resolution. The perfect feature for high-speed sports or capturing a unique sequence of photos, no matter how fast the action, you know you'll get the shot. Plus, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects for even crisper, clearer high-speed shots.

Say Goodbye to Blur

Don't let a not-so-steady hand prevent you from capturing the moment. Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for camera shake by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Get sharp, blur-free footage in otherwise unsteady situations, like shooting video while walking.
