Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX100 – World’s Smallest and Lightest Cameras in its Class

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX100 takes full advantage of newly-developed Advanced Aspherical (AA) lens, which dramatically reduces camera body thickness to as slim as 17.5mm while increasing optical performance for amazing image quality.

Key features:

  • 10x optical lens (25-250mm) with Clear Image Zoom for 20x zoom while resolution is kept
  • Extra High Sensitivity technology for 1/6 noise reduction without affecting image quality
  • 18.2 megapixel (effective) Exmor R CMOS image sensor
  • BIONZ image processing engine’s adaptive noise reduction
  • Quicker autofocus (~0.13 secs in daylight, ~0.20 secs in low-light)
  • Full HD recording with Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation
  • 9 Picture Effect modes

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX100 will be available in Asia Pacific (including Singapore) from March 2012.
