Other useful functions include Intelligent Sweep Panorama for one shot landscapes, the iSCN mode which detects 33 scene conditions and adjusts camera settings automatically, Natural Flash for balanced skin tones and colors and Motion Detection.

Sony DSC-WX70 Features

  • 16.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor: Features a 16.2 MP Exmor R CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera's Carl Zeiss lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity
  • Capture the decisive moment with up to 10 fps: Capture full 16.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal
  • 3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama mode: Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities. Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way
  • Picture Effect: Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select models have up to nine effects
  • Smile Shutter technology: Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply select Smile Shutter and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity
  • Intelligent Scene Recognition mode: Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) mode automatically detects 33 different types of scenes and selects the appropriate camera settings. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced
  • Sweep Multi Angle mode: In Sweep Multi Angle mode, the camera takes 15 images at different angles as it sweeps across the scene. By tilting the camera during playback, the camera's Gyro Sensor detects motion and displays the image in a 3D-like view on the camera's LCD
  • Optical zoom plus Clear image zoom: With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images
  • Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode: Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode for blur-free movies even while walking. Camera-shake compensation using Optical SteadyShot/Active Mode has been improved with the addition of new electronic image stabilization
  • Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode: With Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a high resolution panoramic image providing the ability to zoom in on small details
  • Superior Auto mode: The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using Backlight Correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology
  • Anti-blink function: It's frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting
  • Natural Flash: Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash controls the white balance of both the background and main subjects
  • Full HD 1080/60i: Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD video. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV
  • 3.0" LCD touch screen: The 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD display (921K dots) with touch screen makes it easy to glide through menus and preview live Picture Effects. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation
  • Background Defocus: DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Sony's point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit
  • Face Detection technology: Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends
  • Soft Skin mode: Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot
  • Motion Detection: Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces

This camera did not work for me

By

from San Francisco, CA

I bought this Camera online for my daughter for Christmas Gift, but it would just reboot itself, when using the Menu option. The first day it stopped working, went to Sony store who could not exchange because they don't carry it in the store and they sent it out for repair. Very disappointing Christmas Gift for a 9 year old.
