Sony DSC-WX80, W730, W710, TF1 and H200 Digital Cameras

Sony DSC-WX80

For 2013, Sony announced five new Cyber-shot compact digital cameras (DSC-WX80, DSC-W730, DSC-W710, DSC-TF1 and DSC-H200), which share a variety of new features including a new Advanced Flash that boosts the cameras sensitivity and extends the effective range of the flash.  This is especially useful in low-light situations like party shots, indoors or dusk where built-in flashes have historically struggled to reach far-away subjects and capture all important details of a scene.

Additionally, the new “Beauty Effect” feature gives users several post-shooting “re-touch” options including skin toning and smoothing, teeth whitening, eye widening and shine removal. Also, 360 Sweep Panorama mode, previously available on a few select Cyber-shot models, will now be offered throughout the entire line. This unique feature allows for seamless, detailed 360° panoramic shots.

Ultra-Compact W Series Cameras
The new Cyber-shot WX80 compact camera features a high-resolution 16.2 MP Exmor R CMOS sensor, an 8x optical zoom lens with 16x Clear Image digital zoom and an enhanced Optical SteadyShot that minimizes camera shake for crisp, blur-free still images.  Additionally, Superior Auto shooting mode has been improved to recognize and optimize settings in an even wider range of shooting situations including very low-light scenes and instances where a subject is in fast motion.

The new DSC-WX80 model is Wi-Fi capable, allowing users to send images and video clips (MP4 only) wirelessly to a compatible smartphone or tablet through Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile application. Its Wi-Fi functionality also lets shooters use their connected phone to control basic camera functions including shutter release, zoom, flash mode and more. Images can be viewed wirelessly on a networked TV or PC as well.

The feature-packed WX80 camera is also compatible with TRILUMINOUS Color, an expanded range of vivid, ultra-realistic colors that is available on select Sony BRAVIA TVs. Content shot with the camera, including still images and Full HD (1920x1080i) videos, can be experienced in these rich, natural colors when connected to compatible televisions.
