Press the icon and Smile Shutter makes catching
Styled for life
Available in four gorgeous colours – silver, black, pink and green, with a textured metal finish and sleek rounded corners, the W320 has been designed to enhance your style. It’s practical too. Weighing just 101g and with a depth of 17.3mm, this is a camera that you’ ll want to pop in your pocket or carry in your bag, and take everywhere with you.
How many times have you missed that perfect moment with friends and family? Smile Shutter delays your camera shutter action until your subject has started smiling, making the W320 ideal for party scenes and portrait shots. It has an adjustable smile threshold so you’re not kept waiting too long, and you can change the setting from adults to children, and back again. This works alongside Face Recognition, which adjusts the camera’s settings to make sure faces look sharp and clear, with natural skin tones. Put the technologies together and you’ve got beautiful portraits, whatever the location.
Face Recognition finds and enhances
The W320 is packed with clever features that take the effort out of taking great pictures. If you’re just getting started with a camera, Easy Shooting mode ensures it’s a fun experience, with simplified controls and easy-to-read instructions. Intelligent Auto recognises scenes, lighting and faces and adjusts settings, so that wherever you are and whatever the situation, you’ll get the best results possible. Trickier shots like twilight landscapes and backlit portraits are taken care of with Intelligent Scene Recognition. Choose from seven pre-set exposure modes and the W320 will automatically alter aperture, shutter speed and colour balance so you get great results in a range of conditions.
Great images are in easy reach with the W320, thanks to a range of premium imaging technology. The Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar 4x optical zoom lens will bring far away subjects even closer, while the 26mm wide angle means you’ll get more people and landscape into your pictures. With SteadyShot stabilising the image and a high light sensitivity (up to ISO 3200), you won’t need to worry about hand movement blurring your pictures. Responsive shooting is delivered by the Super HAD CCD sensor, so you can make the most of the camera’s impressive 14.1 megapixel resolution. At this size you’ll be able to make a quality poster print at up to A3, or crop the image without losing any of its crisp detail.
On the big screen
Flip the W320 round and you’ll find a generous 2.7” Clear Photo LCD screen. High contrast and clear details make it easy to frame your shots, choose menus and view photos, even in bright conditions. It’s big enough to be viewed by more than one person, so you can relieve the moment there and then. Get your photos looking their best in an instant. The W320 comes with fun in-camera image retouching functions like trim and red-eye correction, for quick fixes.

For absolute simplicity of use, for dependable results under an exceptionally wide range of conditions, and for value, this camera is a great advancement on anything that's gone before. If you want to point and click and get results you'll be proud of, then you'd do well to choose this model.
Easy to use - it's fantastic - point and press! I didn't have time to practise before taking it on holiday. The quality of every picture is superb - from bees on plants, paintings on house walls or landscapes.
Downloading to my computer presented a small challenge - a longer lead would mean I don't have to have the camera on the floor - and I did have to refer to the index for help, but after this I could hardly believe my eyes! All my photo files from the past were reorganised in date order and the fact that my latest photos were shown on a calendar was also amazing.I'm looking forward to trying the 'map' feature - Wow!
Would I recommend it - without doubt. No doubt I will discover additional features as I go on, but for now, it will do me fine!
The LCD screen is good, although if you zoom in on your pictures on it they are blurry, I assume this is not a fault. I would recommend buying a screen protector as it would be easily scratched.
Overall for the price I think this is a brilliant little camera and I am pleased I bought it and would recommend it to anyone considering buying it.
1)Looks - the green is gorgeous.
2)Picture quality - 14.1 MP + Carl Zeiss lens. Say no more!
3)Compactness and light weight - slips easily into a shirt pocket.
4)Battery - lithium, long life and easy charging.
5)Features - virtually unlimited.
6)Price - I doubt you will find better value for money, certainly at Amazon price.
As expected from a Sony product, it is absolutely fantastic. It is ideally sized to slip into your pocket without being too bulky but still has the capability to take sharp and colourful photos. I charged it on the first day, and even after a week and 150 photos the battery was still showing full charge. On downloading the photos to my PC today, I am delighted to say they are crisp and clear with beautiful colours.
The smile sensor is fun to experiment with as it automatically takes pictures when it detects a smiling face, but I'm not sure how essential it is in everyday use.
On the down side, you will have to buy a separate case and memory card, but it still makes for a cheap and convenient camera for all occasions.
