It’s a whole new world in 3D
Discover just how good 3D photography can be. The WX7 gives you the freedom to take 3D single shot still photos for playback on your 3D TV – the ultimate in realism. It also lets you capture stunning landscapes and cityscapes in panoramic 3D with Intelligent 3D Sweep Panorama. Simply press the shutter while sweeping the camera from side to side or up and down to shoot a high-speed burst of frames. Images are then automatically stitched together to create one amazing panoramic image. The Intelligent Sweep Panorama function also lets you shoot movement without the image becoming distorted.
Every detail perfectly capturedWith 16 effective megapixels, WX7 shoots intensely detailed, high resolution images that look sharp and lifelike even when enlarged up to A3 size. On board is a cutting edge Exmor R™ CMOS sensor capable of absorbing twice as much light as a conventional sensor to produce low-noise pictures that stay perfectly defined even in poor light. Ideal if you want to shoot late into the evening or indoors without using a flash.
Shoot far and wide
The WX7 has a bright Carl Zeiss lens with a minimum focal length of 25mm so you can capture great wide angle shots with ease. Its super-wide aperture allows more light to fall on the sensor and lets you shoot flash-free at twilight or in dimly lit rooms. For capturing action that's further away there’s a 5x IS optical zoom offering superb clarity. Optical stabilisation keeps your shots steady so your photos retain sharpness and definition, whatever and wherever you are shooting.
Making movies in Full HD 1080i
It’s not always easy to carry both your camera and camcorder when travelling around. That’s why WX7 includes excellent movie features for capturing those special video moments. Shoot ultra-sharp and lifelike movies in Full HD 1080i with one touch recording and efficient AVCHD video compression technology to optimise file size for easy storage and sharing on your PC. Sound quality is impressive too with stereo recorded at 30 frames per second. Relive all the excitement by watching your movies on your HD TV using the camera's multiple HD output options.
See everything clearly
Despite its compact size, WX7 includes a high resolution 2.8” Clear Photo Plus LCD with 460,000 dots. This large screen makes framing your shots really easy and provides excellent detail, high contrast and wide viewing angles.
Let the camera do the work
Sometimes you haven’t got time to set the camera up – it’s all about capturing a moment as it happens. That’s why WX7 includes features like Intelligent Scene Recognition which automatically selects from eight preset modes - Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Twilight Tripod, Backlight, Backlight Portrait, Landscape, Macro and Portrait.
Catch those facial expressions
Face Detection automatically adjusts the exposure, focus and skin tone of your shot so the photos you take of your friends and family look more natural. Soft Skin mode uses this Face Detection technology to automatically soften wrinkles and freckles, as well as adding definition to the eyes and mouth - perfect for individual or group portraits. Smile Shutter is another handy feature that when activated, automatically takes pictures when people smile.
Smiles all round
You can take detailed 7.1 megapixel 2D still shots any time you choose – even if you’re filming in 3D. Smile Shutter™ allows you to automatically take photos whenever your subject smiles without interrupting video recording.

Brilliant photography at low light.
video quality is also excellent.
I compared the camera to an Canon IXUS 220 HS (my friends camera, we took exactly same photos at the same time) and the Sony is much better especially at low light and for portraits.
I took this bad boy to Cyprus with me this year and it took the best pictures even in low light with no flash the camera picks up light with no problems thanks to its Exmor R CMOS Sensor. The camera also features 3d images unfortunately you do need a 3d TV to then view these pictures which is to be expected anyone moaning about this is an idiot because how else do you expect to view them, so its not a feature i experimented much with. Other features include different scene selects that automatically adjust the cameras settings to take the best possible snaps for the moment such as fireworks which took perfect sharp bright colourful images of a firework display they did whilst i was on a boat trip. Theres also a food scene, night scene, pet scene to capture fast moving images and many many more there's also a great soft face scene which almost makes your face look airbrushed which is great for close up photos if your looking a little ruff. you also get your usual features such as timers, auto flash etc.. I wont list every single feature as this is already listed in the product information i just hope to let you know how well the main features work.
With so many scene selects to choose from you may not want to mess around with them or if your just not sure how to pick the perfect camera settings to suit a particular scene? Don't worry, help is at hand. Superior Auto Mode adjusts exposure and other camera settings for optimum results in a wide range of shooting situations.Read more ›
I was looking for a compact camera that can take great shots in low light, whilst providing good overall picture quality.
I am sad to say that although this camera is very reasonably priced, it has 3 major drawbacks.
The first one is that the video quality is magnificent, but the format is unrecognisable on a Mac computer. I also found that my computer actually struggles to detect the camera whilst connected by USB port (I have no such issues with the Canon).
The second major drawback is that at its higher resolution, 16MP, the camera is extremely slow to process the picture.
The third drawback is that the little control wheel at the top right corner is extremely sensitive to the touch. My fingers are not that big, and the slightest touch whilst reaching for the shutter is putting the camera in settings mode.
I have not been using it much because I dislike it. The Canon range is by far superior in my opinion.
