Improved And New Features
Newly refined on both Exmor R CMOS models, Superior Auto takes the guesswork out of picking the right camera settings. Cyber-shot cameras recognise an even wider range of shooting situations, including tricky low-light scenes. Everything is adjusted automatically for best results in daylight or dusk, with improved motion detection for better, blur-free images when your subject is moving. Also, Optical SteadyShot on Exmor R CMOS models reduces the effects of camera shake for crisp, blur-free results, even when zooming; a common cause of blurred images.
Built-in Wi-Fi (Cyber-shot WX200) makes image sharing easier than ever. Send full-resolution photos wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet, then upload to your favourite social networks using Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile app. View images stored in the camera on your networked TV or back up photos and videos straight from your camera to a PC, with no cables needed.
Wi-Fi even lets you use your smartphone as a handy remote to control your Cyber-shot. Other camera functions can also be controlled remotely via Wi-Fi from your mobile.
Beauty Effect brings out the best in your portrait subjects and all new models also feature Advanced Flash.
All Exmor R CMOS models are compatible with TRILUMINOS(TM) Colour2, allowing users to experience an expanded palette of vivid, ultra-realistic colours when still images and videos are played back on any BRAVIA TV with support for TRILUMINOS(TM) Display.
