Sony Cyber-shots With Panorama Mode

  • Offers panorama mode – 185-degree shots
  • Sensor makes sure shots are sharp
  • Dedicated movie button

Sony has announced two new models in its range of Cyber-shot W series digital cameras. The DSC-WX7 and DSC-WX10 offer 16.2 megapixels, AVCHD Full HD movie recording, Exmor R CMOS Sensor, Optical SteadyShot and price tags under $400

With AVCHD Full HD movie recording (1920 x 1080i), both the WX7 and WX10 capture footage that can be uploaded to social networking sites (using the supplied software) or viewed in Full HD via a Bravia LCD TV using an HDMI cable. The dedicated Movie button ensures the whole experience is seamless, allowing users to start recording at any moment. In addition, images and footage are claimed to be clear and sharp even after the sun has set due to the Exmor R CMOS Sensor.

Sony’s Intelligent Sweep Panorama Mode can now capture 42.9 megapixel still images – claimed to be the highest resolution among all compact digital still cameras. Reaching beyond the traditional wide-angle lens, users can capture stunning 185-degree shots of landscapes or skyscrapers by clicking the shutter, capturing scenes with a sweeping motion.

The image can then be viewed in Full HD on a BRAVIA LCD TV or enlarged to a print or canvas and hung as a piece of art.

Offering further convenience while travelling or on-the-go, the new W series feature USB charging, allowing users to maintain battery levels while transferring images and HD video to a PC or Mac.

DSC-WX7 $329
DSC-WX10 $399
