Sony Cybershot DSC-WX5

All of us know that aperture refers to the opening of the lens; the more the lens opens more the light that enters the camera. Somehow manufacturers never seem to make compact point and shoot cameras with fast lens, with an aperture of around 2.8 or 2.4. Instead they think of equipping cameras with features that many of them would never use, or may have trouble using. The Sony Cyber Shot DSC-WX5, however, is equipped with a fast lens, at f2.4. This compact camera comes with 12.2 mp resolution and 5x wide angle optical lens.

Design and Functioning

Continuing with the standards set by its predecessor WX1/B, the WX5 bears a minimalist design and comes with the same simple shape and well distributed ergonomics. In fact, this camera is also, like its predecessor, available in the two conventional colours of Metallic Silver and Midnight Black. Sony’s superior Auto mode captures a high-speed burst of up to six frames when you press the shutter button. Camera settings are automatically optimised according to shooting conditions. Cyber-shot then combines information from each frame to create an exquisite, low-noise picture with wide dynamic range, as enjoyed by DSLR photo enthusiasts. As an extra refinement, new Background Defocus makes it easy to achieve pro-style images, similar to the results achieved with a DSLR camera and wide-aperture lens. New Soft Skin mode flatters portrait subjects even further, automatically removing small wrinkles and skin blemishes for effortlessly beautiful results. For the first time ever, 3D Sweep Panorama lets you shoot incredible 3D images without needing a bulky, complex double-lens camera system. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically compensates to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality. It contains 32MB of internal memory and is compatible with Memory Stick Duo/Pro Duo/ Pro HG Duo apart from SD/SDHC/SDXC.
