The Sony DSC-WX500 is a compact and lightweight camera that features an impressive Zeiss 30x optical zoom that defies its tiny form factor. It’s the perfect camera to carry with you everyday and to leave in your bag till you need it – the best camera is the one that’s with you.
18.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
Powered by Sony’s BIONZ X image processing engine, the back-illuminated 18.2 Megapixel Exmor R CMOS Sensor is capable of producing higher image quality even in low light situations. Images are beautifully clear with excellent detail and reduced noise. For particularly dim situations, the built-in camera flash is able to evenly illuminate scenes so that you never have to miss a shot.
Zeiss Zoom Lens 24-720mm Equivalent
The Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens extends from a wide 35mm equivalent focal length of 24mm to a 720mm telephoto end. The 30x zoom lens is perfect for all types of photography from portraiture to landscape. Coupled with Zeiss T* multi-layer coatings, this lens offers vivid sharpness and contrast with minimal ghosting and flare.
5-Axis Image Stabilisation
A rapid and precise Fast Intelligent AF system ensures that auto focus is accurate and the Intelligent Active Mode incorporates Optical Steadyshot 5-axis image stabilisation, keeping blur away and bringing the best out of the powerful lens and the fleeting moments you capture.
180° Flip LCD Screen
A 180-degree tilt-able high-resolution LCD screen can be flipped up so that when shooting self-portraits or group selfies, you can best frame your photo. The flip screen also allows you to shoot images from low perspectives with ease, letting you capture dynamic and story-telling perspective.
Advanced Shooting Modes
For advanced users and budding image makers interested in taking their photography further, a variety of exposure modes (Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, Manual) are offered that extend the cameras capabilities beyond just point and shoot. Button settings can be customised so that frequently used functions are easily accessed. Sony PlayMemories camera applications can also be installed to personalise your camera and bring your work to the next level.
Full HD Video at 60fps
For times where a stills photo doesn’t quite capture the action, the camera’s sweeping panoramic mode and highly capable video modes are excellent alternatives. Featuring high definition 1920x1080 video recorded at up to 60 frames per second, footage of your favourite moments is silky smooth and displays beautifully on large screens.
Integrated WiFi Connectivity
Featuring integrated WiFi and NFC connections, the camera easily connects to Android, iOS and other smart devices for sharing your favourite images and videos with friends and family on your social media streams. Mobiles and tablets can also be utilised as external live-view finders.
Extensive Battery Life
With an extended battery life that lets you take approximately 400 photos or records up to 75 minutes of movie footage in a single setting, the Sony WX500 Compact Digital Camera is the perfect companion for your everyday adventures.
