Sony CyberShot DSC-WX70
New to Sony CyberShot this year, Extra High Sensitivity technology expands your photo opportunities, especially in dimly-lit conditions. Maximum sensitivity is boosted to ISO 12800 with the DSC-WX70, giving more possibilities for spontaneous handheld photo shooting without flash. In addition, noise levels are drastically reduced to a sixth of previous Sony Cybershot cameras. Naturally the Sony DSC-WX70 also offers Optical SteadyShot, more advanced than ever, adding an Active Mode that’s combined with electronic stabilization to combat camera shake when you’re capturing Full HD videos. The Sony WX70 is even effective at high zoom settings where other image stabilization systems struggle to deliver clear, blur-free handheld video footage. The Sony DSC-WX70 lets you simply enjoy crisp, natural pictures, from atmospheric portraits to interiors.
Sweep Multi Angle on the Sony WX70
A unique feature in the Sony CyberShot WX70 is the Sweep Multi Angle mode, the camera takes 15 images at different angles as it sweeps across the scene. By tilting the DSC-WX70 during playback, the camera’s Gyro Sensor detects motion and displays the image in a 3D-like view on the camera’s LCD. Superior Auto Mode takes the guesswork out of achieving professional results in virtually any situation. Detecting the scene and shooting conditions, the Sony Cybershot DSC-WX70 automatically adjusts exposure and other camera settings for superb images with low noise and high dynamic range.
