With a 10x optical zoom and 18.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, the WX150 packs a lot of punch into a very tiny package. That sensor proved itself in our recent review of the HX30v, and it really is steal at the lower price point of the WX150. And as with all Sony cameras with an "x" in the name, the WX150 shoots 1080/60 HD video, has a number of multi-shot tricks like HDR and sweep panorama, and shoots 10fps continuous. It's a surprisingly full feature set for this kind of money and makes the camera worth a real hard look. Reviews have been quite positive so far, with many commenting on the very small size of the camera (same size as the WX50) despite the long zoom range.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150
Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users
Sony has been at the forefront of the consumer electronics industry for the past 30 years. All Sony digital cameras show the company's dedication to including the most cutting edge technology paired with a simple style to produce high-quality compact digital cameras for casual users, hobbyists, and even professional photographers.
Sony's Latest Innovation in the Digital Camera Field
In September 2012, Sony announced the release of its latest camera, the Cybershot DSC-RX1. According to Sony, this is the first full-frame compact digital camera available. A 24.3 megapixel full-frame sensor attached to a capable 35mm f2 lens makes this camera very desirable. This pocketable combination produces professional-quality photos in a package that's relatively small.
Two of the best Sony digital cameras of 2012 as indicated by consumer ratings include the following:
* Sony Cybershot HX30V: For great photos and video in a package that's compact, yet versatile, and perfect for people who love travelling, this is a great Sony digital camera. The 18.2 megapixel camera is known for its fast performance, including full HD video capture and very fast continuous burst mode, as well as features like a GPS tracker. * Sony Cybershot HX200V: Its fast burst mode and extremely large 35x optical zoom has caused this camera to be rated by consumers as one of Sony's best digital cameras. Lacking RAW capture, it's clear that Sony is aiming the camera at a market that's more amateur than some of the competition. The HX200's image quality has been rated from good to excellent in Sony digital camera reviews, and video quality is one of the the finest available.
