Compact zoom digital camera

It’s the amazingly easy-to-use camera that slips right in your pocket—with an 8x optical zoom, 20.1MP photos and beautifully-detailed HD videos. And pics stay clearer, even with shaky hands thanks to Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. You can also enhance your images with built-in effects that adjust skin tone and texture or even whiten teeth.

20.1 Megapixel Plus 8x Zoom

A powerful 20.1 megapixel CCD image sensor helps you capture gorgeous images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail. With 20.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to A3+ (13x19”) size, or crop your images and still come away with high resolution shots. The 8x zoom Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar lens helps you get much closer to your subjects.

Optical SteadyShot image Stabilization with 2-way Active Mode

Sony's Active Mode image stabilization gives you the freedom to shoot movies even while walking or running. 2-way Active Mode corrects for both vertical and horizontal motion.

720p MP4 HD Movie Mode

In 720p MP4 movie mode the camera shoots 1280 x 720 high definition movies at 30 fps, a standard format when working with a PC.¹ Create high quality movies with full use of optical zoom in files small enough to transfer to compatible PC or Mac computer. Once transferred to your computer and connected to the internet, you can effortlessly upload your media to popular photo and video-sharing websites such as Photobucket and YouTube.

Creative shooting with Picture and Beauty effects

Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Beauty Effects allows edits to skin tones, skin smoothing, shine removal, eye widening, and teeth whitening. Beauty Effects can be combined to further enhance the image.

Advanced Flash illuminates distant subjects

Advanced Flash allows you to shoot bright, beautifully lit photos. The built in flash reaches farther resulting in brighter subjects in dimly lit rooms or outdoors in the evening.

Intelligent Auto Mode

Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you, recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, faces, and adjusts settings resulting in clear images, faces with natural skin tone and less blur. Take advantage of all the technology without leaving Auto mode. Kids on the playground, landscape shots, a beautiful flower or an indoor birthday party; all result in clear images without leaving auto mode.

Sweep Panorama mode (up to 360°)

Reach beyond the traditional wide angle lens, and capture more breathtaking shots with Sweep Panorama mode. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and up to 360° full circle, the camera can take a variety of panoramic shots. Now capturing wide landscapes is as easy as press and sweep.

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 it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button 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 now 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.

2.7” (230K dots) Clear Photo LCD display

Generous 2.7” (230K dots) Clear Photo LCD display features sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight.

5The best
By Gary Cross
My wife loves this camera! It is the only one she will use. She can take professional quality pictures just as good if not better than the professionals. Plus she can capture lighting bolts with the continuous shooting mode.

4Good Quality Camera
By Sarah Lynn
I have purchased several Sony Cyber-shots over the years. I like that they take warmer quality photos, and are affordable. What I don't like so much with this model, is that the body is now plastic, where in the past it was metal. I fear dropping this one, as with an all plastic body it will be prone to cracking, etc.

There's an improvement in this model- with the fact that you can now charge your battery IN the camera. You just plug your camera into an outlet or computer to charge. In past models you always had to remove the battery and what would happen was the door latch would eventually break and you would have to tape it shut. I'm really pleased that I can now charge the battery in the camera so it will prevent wear and tear on the battery door.

The quality of photos and macros, etc is still really nice. You can set it to automatic or custom settings. I use my camera a lot on the macro setting because I am a beauty blogger and take photographs of nail polish color on my nails. Aside from the body being plastic on this model, everything else I'm happy with.

1Not the best...
By K. Diaz
This camera was purchased as an inexpensive alternative to a DSLR (ok - not alternative, but when traveling abroad, the teacher wouldn't allow my daughter to bring her DSLR so we got this instead).

This camera caused major distortion on the corners of images - so if any person happened to be in the corner - they looked pretty funny. This camera also had internal dust on the lens. I cleaned the lens several times - with the same stuff I clean my professional lenses with - and nothing got the dust out - so I have to assume it was on the inside of the lens. ALL images had this dust on them - and they are NOT easy to remove in post processing. I had high hopes for this camera being a nice alternative when my daughter can't take her bulky DSLR - but this is not the case. Not many of her photos turned out. Quite disappointing for a once in a lifetime trip.
