The Black Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 Digital Camera from Sony is a straight-forward point-and-shoot with 16.2 megapixels packed into an Exmor R CMOS sensor. That means, even though it's a compact camera, you can shoot detailed photos that look great big or small - even on your HDTV or blown up to a poster-size print. Additionally, the WX50 shoots 1080i video, giving you the ability to take full advantage of social media sites with your movies.

Along with features like iSCN - which detects 33 scene conditions and automatically adjust camera settings for you - the WX50 also puts a number of creative and advanced capture options at your fingertips. From the ease of using the Intelligent Sweep Panorama feature for one shot landscapes to the Background Defocus function for a look more frequently associated with DSLR capture, this camera has an extensive menu of useful capabilities. Other such features include Anti-blink, Soft Skin mode, Sweep Multi Angle, and then some.

Of course, you can't get great shots without the right tools. The WX50 has a 2.7"" Clear Photo LCD for composition, review, and menu navigation. A Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 5x optical zoom - and 10x Clear Image Zoom - gives you the ability to zoom in close or go out wide for great shots from groups and landscapes to interiors. Sony's SteadyShot image stabilization keeps images blur-free, even when the camera is hand-held, and the built-in flash gives you great stills when shooting in low-light. SD/SDHC/SDXC and Memory Stick Duo media all can be used with the camera for convenient file storage.

16.2Mp Back-Illuminated Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor

This camera features a 16.2Mp 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 and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor delivers extremely fast up to 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080i movie modes. Add clear image statement

Optical Zoom Plus Clear Image Zoom

Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. 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. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos

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 HDTV. With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time

Capture the Decisive Moment with Up to 10fps

Capture full 16.2Mp 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. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects

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. Now it's easier than ever to obtain sharp, blur-free movies, even when zooming in unsteady situation, such as shooting with one hand while walking

2.7"" LCD Touchscreen

The 2.7"" Clear Photo LCD (460K dots) delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.

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

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. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently differently widths to help avoid subject distortion

Background Defocus

DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now these point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background, and applied a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear

Picture Effect for More Expressive Photos

Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes, and portraits come to life by heightening mode and emphasizing certain attributes. Select models have up to nine effects

Superior Auto Mode

Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. 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. Superior Auto intelligently detects 33 scenes for still images and movies, making it easy to get the best shot

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

Smile Shutter Technology

Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment if 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 can be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting

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. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot

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

Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode

Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects 33 different types of scenes and, within just 1/30th of a second, selects the appropriate camera settings. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep

Natural Flash

Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images

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

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
