Sony DSC-WX220 overview

  • 1Description

For notable low-light performance, the black Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 Digital Camera from Sony is a compact zoom point-and-shoot that features an 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor with a BIONZ X image processor. For considerable wide-angle to telephoto image capturing capabilities, the 4.45-44.5mm f/3.3-5.9 lens has a 35mm equivalent of 25-250mm and features a powerful 10x optical zoom with a 20x Clear Image Zoom. To view your images and high-resolution full HD 1080/60p AVCHD videos, there is a 2.7" Clear Photo LCD 460k-dot monitor on the back of the camera.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization helps compensate for camera shake to provide clearer images, especially in low-light and when using a longer focal lengths. Useful for sports photography, the WX220 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 in order to reduce the blur created by moving figures in the foreground. Experience subject movement in one still image with the Motionshot Video feature or change settings, zoom in, and even take a photo with the Smartphone Remote App. For easy uploading after a long day of shooting, built-in Wi-Fi allows you to instantly share what you have created with your family and friends.

18.2MP Exmor R CMOS Sensor & BIONZ X Image Processor
The 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor captures high-definition images with sharp details and minimal noise, even in low light, while the BIONZ X image processor offers fast performance and buffering speeds.
10x Optical Zoom Lens & 20x Clear Image Zoom
A Sony G lens with 10x 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 20x Clear Image Zoom that employs an intelligent interpolation algorithm to increase zoom magnification with minimal image quality loss.
2.7" LCD Display with 460k-Dot Resolution
Still photos and videos can be clearly displayed on the 2.7" ClearPhoto LCD, which features a 460k-dot resolution and has both histogram and grid viewing options. Additionally, five brightness levels allow you to compose and view your images in any lighting situation.
Simple Connectivity to Smartphones via Wi-Fi with NFC3
Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing / One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi with NFC3 control. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, the camera also supports NFC (near field communication) providing "one touch connection" convenience when transferring images to Android smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control - a feature that allows shutter release to be controlled by a smartphone - connection to the smartphone can be established by simply touching compatible devices.
Full HD 1080 Video Capture
The DSC-WX220 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
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.
Fast 10fps Continuous Burst Shooting & Lock-On AF
Ideal for sports photography, the fast Continuous Burst Shooting allows you to shoot up to 10 frames per second in full 18.2MP resolution. You can also use 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 360˚
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. The camera will 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, Tracking Focus & Smile Shutter
Face Detection allows you to take better portraits and group 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. Smile Shutter Technology and Blink Detection help you get the best shot by recognizing when is the best moment to release the shutter.
Motionshot Video & Picture Effects
To show off jumps and tracks, captured subject movement is displayed in a sequence of superimposed images on a single background. Additionally, Picture Effect adds creative expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits special by heightening the mood and emphasizing certain attributes.

    Sony DSC-WX220 reviews

    Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 Digital Camera (Black) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from an excellent camera for it's price I bought this camera after owning several other small, knock around cameras. I have pro level equipment in a Nikon 810 and Pentax K1, both equal in quality. This small camera was to carry around on vacation or other times when I did not need or want the heavy pro equipment. It takes great pictures up to 8x10 and is good in low light. Quick shutter and good auto-focus. There are few tweaks you can make in taking a picture but that is why I bought this camera, it is for quick point and shoot situations. Excellent and much better than a canon or a Nikon for the same price that I tried out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overlook my bad review of 3-27-2015 after returning 4-other brands with similar prices, I find the culprit was windows-8. which did not want to download from the cameras, or, sd-cards. Unless i did it in a roundabout way that most times only let me burn data-dvd's. After getting a new PC. (Windows-7-Pro) from HP, which has My Movie - Movie Maker, I can now burn AVCHD movies. Whereas with W-8, i had to convert files (long process) before i could combine video with photos that would play on a DVD-Player. I returned the sony, cannon, fuji, and nikon before I got my new W-7. Then looking back, I decided I made the correct choice in the 1st place by choosing the sony. I wanted a video camera that fit in my T-Shirt pocket. Great videos. Especially at night. All by letting the camera choose what to do. Could get even better if I set it to Movie and tweak the settings. But I just leave it in Photo mode and take videos as needed. The highs. - Ease of use. One touch video. 10X optical zoom is more than anyone needs. 32-gig card says 4.5 hours of video. Buy. - Extra battery. Case. Monopod; extended, will keep your movies shake free. (smooth like a pro). Cons. - just reading the built in instructions for 1/2 hour depleted the battery to 1-of-4 marks. But yet it kept going for another 15-minutes before I got nervous and recharged. (and this is the NP-BN1 spare that I bought. Not the np-bn that came with the camera. which doesn't last as long). Hate to ruin the new battery by seeing how long before it is totally depleted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from photos from a supercub great camera to tie to the wing of a Piper Supercub and control with a 6 volt solenoid. Much better than a GoPro which has too wide a field of view

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little camera ! Only took off one star because the Sony software is not that great but the camera takes great pics and video !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small But Very Camera My wife wanted a handy small camera for her purse. This is a terrific small camera that really takes excellent photos. The quality of the photo is much better than one gets on a phone camera. It is simple to operate and has a nice zoom feature. It is also takes video, which is a nice feature.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great super compact camera No excuse ever to not take this ultra compact camera with you. Fits perfectly in your pocket.
    Date published: 2015-11-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny package of great features Many no longer use cameras and rely on their smartphones. For those of us who still like the sophistication of multiple settings on a real camera, but don't want to be burdened with bulk, this Cyber-Shot is absolutely terrific. It is small enough to fit comfortably into a pocket, but has all the features of a full sized camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best small point and click One of the best small format point and clicks out there. One of things that helps rank it up there for me is the time to first photo. Between pressing the power button and catpuring the moment, this has one of the shortest lags you can get before throwing down for a dslr. It's about the same amount of time it takes my taka Galaxy s5 to load it's native camera app, but the photos are obvoiusly way better. Controls are fairly intuitive if not a bit over simplified.
