About the Sony DSC-WX500 Camera

The Sony WX500 uses many technologies from both the RX and Alpha series of digital cameras to provide a level of refinement and advancement previously not available in such a small camera. It also features a 180-degree swivel Vari-angle LCD monitor.

The imaging sensor is a super-fine 18.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS design for a superb low light performance, and the image data is fed through the latest Sony BIONZ image processor for the best possible image quality. Optically there is a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 30x zoom lens which uses digital zoom technology to obtain a 60x Clear Image Zoom without any significant loss of image quality. The optics are also stabilised using a state-of-the-art 5-axis Optical SteadyShot system which corrects just about any type of spurious image movement.

Movies are recorded in Full HD quality and recording is possible using the high speed XAVC S format at 50mbps bit rate.

Versatility is also key for this camera, which has a built-in pop-up flash for low light shooting, as well as having a 921,000-dot 3-inch LCD screen which has a full 180-degree tilt, making it ideal for akward angle shooting - and selfies!

This camera features both Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity for wireless communication and remote camera control, allowing you to control your camera and share its images easily and almost instantaneously.
