The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 Digital Camera is a compact zoom point-and-shoot that features an 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor with a BIONZ X image processor for notable low-light performance, and a powerful 20x optical zoom lens with an additional 40x Clear Image Zoom. A 4.3-86mm f/3.5-6.5 lens, which has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 25-500mm, establishes the camera as having considerable wide-angle to telephoto image capturing abilities. To view your images and high-resolution full HD 1080/60p AVCHD videos, there is a 3" Clear Photo LCD 460k-dot monitor at the back.
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization helps compensate for camera shake to provide clearer images, especially in low light and when using the longer focal lengths. Useful for sports photography, the WX350 features 10 frames per second continuous shooting at the full 18.2MP resolution ensuring sharp, clear images that are less likely to be missed.
To capture a wide area all in one photo, Intelligent Sweep Panorama utilizes motion compensation while shooting panoramas in order to reduce the blur created by moving figures in the foreground. Enhanced Superior Auto enables the camera to select optimal settings based on scene recognition and provides crisp, beautiful results even in low-light situations. For easy uploading after a long day of shooting, a built-in Wi-Fi allows you to instantly share what you have created with your family and friends.
Captures high definition images with sharp details and minimal noise, even in low light; offers fast performance and buffering speeds.
A Sony G lens with 20x optical zoom capability offers a considerable expanse of reach from wide-angle to super-telephoto. This zoom range can effectively be doubled, too, using the 40x Clear Image Zoom that employs an intelligent interpolation algorithm to increase zoom magnification with minimal image quality loss.
Still photos and videos can be clearly displayed on the 3" ClearPhoto LCD display with 460k-dot resolution where Histogram and Grid Display are available, as are 5 brightness levels allowing you to compose and view your images in any lighting situation.
Wi-Fi lets you quickly upload photos and videos to social media sites through your smartphone or tablet, back them up on your network-connected computer, or view them on a wireless-enabled HDTV. When transferring images to Android smartphones or tablets, the camera also supports NFC (Near Field Communication) providing a simple, "one touch connection" requiring you to merely touch the devices to connect.
The DSC-WX350 can capture Full HD 1080 AVCHD videos at 60 and 30 frames per second, providing for fast motion video with less distortion when playing back on your HDTV.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization offers compensation to reduce the blurring effects of camera movement when shooting at slower shutter speeds. This is particularly effective when shooting in low light or at longer focal lengths. Sony's Active Mode image stabilization combines electronic and optical stabilization for less blurring while shooting videos when moving.
Ideal for sports photography, the WX350 can shoot up to 10 frames per second in full 18.2MP resolution, and has Lock-On AF, which provides the ability to focus on multiple points with subject recognition to keep your subject in sharp focus even when in motion.
Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode takes Sony's Sweep Panorama function to the next level with the addition of motion compensation. Even when subjects are moving in the foreground of your landscape, these cameras can detect faces and moving subjects, intelligently stitching different widths together to minimize distortion. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide format and up to 360° full circle.
Face Detection allows you to take better portraits and groups shots. It recognizes up to 8 faces within your image and adjusts the camera for optimal exposure of faces. Tracking Focus makes it easier to capture clear shots of moving subjects by having the focus automatically adjust while you follow the action with the camera, and Smile Shutter Technology and Blink Detection help you get the best shot by recognizing when is the best moment to release the shutter.
The Intelligent Auto function allows the camera to make the optimal settings based on its recognition of the scene you are shooting and has Superior Auto to provide clear results when shooting scenes with dynamic motion.
An ideal effect for portraiture, Background Defocus allows you to blur the background on an image in order to put more emphasis on the clearly focused subject in the foreground. Additionally, Picture Effect adds creative expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits special by heightening the mood and emphasizing certain attributes.
Erasing and protecting images can be done in various modes: Single Image, Selection of Images, by Date, by Folder and by AVCHD format.
