Sony DSC WX100

The Sony Cybershot DSC WX100 packs a lot of zoom power into its slimline body. You get access to 10x zoom in a camera that is a shade less than 22mm wide. The small size of this camera means it will fit into most pockets.

Sony have also been very generous when it comes to megapixels. The Cybershot DSC WX100 has 18 megapixels. This is more than enough unless you are looking to make enormous prints.

Like an increasing number of digital cameras the Cybershot DSC WX100 offers Full High Definition Movies. These give you a higher resolution and therefore better viewing quality than digital cameras with standard High Definition Movies. Image Stabilisation is available to help produce smoother looking movie clips as well as reducing blur in your still images.

Another feature that is becoming more common and is available with this camera is the ability to produce 3D photographs. There is also an option to produce extra wide, panoramic shots. For capturing action there is a burst mode that is capable of reeling off shots at an impressive rate of 10 frames per second. For close up work you can focus from 5cm away from your subject.

Features that are not so readily available elsewhere include the ability to make your subject stand out by defocusing the background, a self-portrait timer for when you would like to be in the picture and a skin softening mode for more flattering portrait shots.
