Review Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX150 Camera Introduction:

Sony claims that its Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 is the world's slimmest digital camera with a 10x zoom lens. Like a really slim, pocket-friendly camera. Sony introduces a brand spanking new line of slim Cyber-Shot digital cameras, including the powerful DSC-WX150 zoom camera. The new Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX150 is the world's thinnest 10x optical zoom digital camera, slimmer than any other 10x compact camera currently offered in market. The exceptionally narrow design of the Sony DSC-WX150 is largely attributed to the new "Advanced Aspherical" lens element, which allows the lens unit to be drastically smaller than those in earlier 10xs zoom Cyber-Shot cameras while still producing highly detailed, correct images.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX150 Camera Features:

The new Sony DSC-WX150 camera features a 18.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor & an advanced BIONZ picture processor, enhancing low-light performance, Auto Focus speeds, picture stabilization & opening up various multi-shot capabilities including ten fps burst mode, "Background Defocus" mode, 3D still picture shooting & more. The new Sony Cyber-Shot WX150 has also been equipped with "Dual Record" functionality for capturing high-resolution still picks while shooting video, & "Clear Picture Zoom" digital zoom know-how, which boosts optical zoom to 2x virtual capability at full camera resolution. The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX150 can also shoot Full HD video & offers "Picture Effect" options for creative photography. Specifically, it is a Sony G-branded 10x optical zoom lens. 35mm-equivalent focal lengths range from 25-250mm for still images at the native aspect ratio, & maximum aperture ranges from f/3.3 to f/5.9 across the zoom range. Sony describes the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 Camera Charger autofocus technique as "lightning-fast", claiming a focus time of 0.13 seconds in daylight, & 0.2 seconds in low ambient light.
Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX150 Review
Effective resolution from the WX150's imager is 18.2 megapixels, & the sensor size is 1/2.3-inch, for a diagonal of 7.77mm. It is a backside-illuminated picture sensor, so light gathering ought to be better than that of a standard CMOS chip. That is because more of the surface area can be dedicated to light-gathering, as the circuitry has been moved below the active layer of the sensor. Indeed, Sony has opted for a wide ISO range of 80 to 12,800 equivalents, although they don't yet know if that is at full resolution for the whole range. On the rear panel of the Sony WX150 is a immense three.0-inch LCD display, with a resolution of 460,800 dots / 153,600 pixel resolutions, or around half the resolution of a VGA display, with each pixel being comprised of separate red, green, and blue dots. As you'd expect given the form factor of the WX150, there is no optical or electronic viewfinder. As well as still images, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 Battery Charger can also record high-definition video at up to Full HD resolution. For film capture, ISO sensitivity ranges from 100 to 1000 equivalents, and can be expanded to ISO two, 000 equivalent. At the maximum resolution, videos are saved with AVCHD compression. A one, 440 x one, 080 pixel mode can be saved either with AVCHD or MPEG-4 compression, and plays back at 16:9 aspect ratios, but with reduced resolution on the x-axis. There's also high-def 720p and standard-def VGA resolution options, both of which are saved as MPEG-4 video. The AVCHD video all has a rate of 60 interlaced frames per second, while the MPEG-4 video is at 30 frames-per-second. A built-in microphone provides for stereo audio.
Sony Cyber-Shot-DSC WX150 Features
Different stabilization systems are available for video: either the standard Optical Steady Shot used for still imaging, or a more powerful Active Steady Shot mode that combines optical and digital stabilization, with a resulting increase in the focal length crop. Interestingly, the Sony WX150 can also save 13 megapixel still images in the work of film capture, without interrupting the video feed. This is achieved using Sony's "By Pixel Tremendous Resolution" know-how, a variant of digital zoom that makes use of both interpolation and pattern-matching to resample the low-res video frame to a much higher resolution. The Sony WX150 includes both USB two.0 High Speed knowledge and Mini HDMI high-def video connectivity. Images and films are stored in a not-so-generous 19MB of built-in memory, or on SD / Memory Stick Duo cards. Supported SD cards include SDHC and SDXC types, while Memory Stick Duo compatibility includes PRO Duo and PRO HG Duo types, as well as Micro and Micro Mark two cards with an adapter. Power comes courtesy of a proprietary NP-BN or NP-BN1 lithium ion rechargeable battery pack, with the former in the product bundle. The WX150 Sony Camera Charger is rated as lovely for 240 shots on a charge, although it is not said with which pack type this figure was determined.
