Sony Cyber-shot WX350 Performance

Additional sample photos and product shots are available in the Equipment Database, where you can add your own review, photos and product ratings.




Sony Cyber-shot WX350 Sample Photos


Sample Photos - Exposure is reliable with the camera producing images with bright saturated colours. The only problem is the screen, which appears too bright, making it seem as though your photos might be over-exposed at times. Portrait photos with flash show little red-eye, and using the soft-skin portrait scene mode, enhances the appearance of skin by smoothing out any blemishes. 

Sony Cyber-shot WX350 Lens test images


Lens Performance - The lens performs reasonably well, although there is a tendency for some purple fringing and chromatic aberration in contrasting areas. Macro focusing is automatically activated by the camera, and you can get closer to the subject by using 2.1x optical zoom. 

Sony Cyber-shot WX350 ISO test images


ISO Noise Performance - Noise is low at ISO80, 100, 200 and 400. Detail is lost at ISO800 and images become softer and more so at ISO1600. Yet again, noise increases slightly at ISO 3200, but at the two highest settings of ISO 6400 and 12800, image quality is poor and best avoided.

Sony Cyber-shot WX350 White-balance test images


White Balance Performance - Auto White Balance (AWB) performs reasonably well under tungsten lighting with a slightly yellow colour cast. It's a similar result when using the tungsten preset. AWB performs well when fluorescent lighting is used, with the fluorescent preset giving a magenta cast.

Panorama mode - Detail is suitable for sharing on the web, rather than large prints, they are also well stitched together.

Sony Cyber-shot WX350 Digital filters


Digital Filters - The camera has an option called Picture Effect where you can choose from a number of different effects available and we've shown examples above. 

Video - The camera records full HD video (1080p), with stereo sound, and optical zoom is available. The camera's built-in image stabilisation helps, however to use the full 20x optical zoom lens, we would recommend using a tripod.
