Description

Shoot your best — Look even better

Improve your selfie, and take it easily, too. A 180-degree tiltable LCD monitor makes it simple to see how you look in the frame. Meet the new Sony WX500 — the world’s smallest camera to contain the far-reaching performance of a ZEISS® 30x optical zoom lens. With so much creative capability at hand to shoot for fun, you'll capture more star quality in every image.

The Elements of Comprehensive Image Quality

The synergy of a higher-performance CMOS image sensor, lightning-quick image processor and legendary lens pack the latest optical and engineering advancements into an amazingly compact form.

Go farther, closer and wider

The Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar® T* 30x optical zoom lens extends a legacy of high-precision optics to capture clear, sharp, undegraded images throughout a 24–720mm range.

Greater Selfie Satisfaction Assured

Now, it's easier than ever to shoot for a look that you like in selfies, portraits and everything else with the flexibility that a full-tilt LCD monitor, customisable functions and easy photo retouching provide.

Look before you shoot

The high-resolution LCD monitor on the camera back can be tilted up to 180 degrees, so you can comfortably frame a selfie prior to shooting it or shoot at a low position.

Extra-speedy & precise Fast Intelligent AF

An improved spatial object detection algorithm realises a more optimal and accurate lens drive to make AF even faster, for capturing more fleeting moments with ease.

Set the Right Mode in Motion

Whether you want to share action quickly or save it at a higher resolution for editing, it's simple to make format, mode, exposure and other settings, then start to record.

Keep the blurs away

Intelligent Active Mode w. 5-axis image stabilisation + frame analysis.

Get Upwardly Mobile

With its high battery capacity, connectivity for mobile sharing and smart, compact design, the Sony WX500 is extraordinarily easy to take and have fun with over the long run, wherever you go.

Long may you run

Hold your power — live long, work hard, stay strong

A full battery lets you take approx. 4006 stills or record 757 minutes of movie footage to make sure that you won't miss a good chance to shoot.

Share with ease — Gain remote control

Wi-Fi® connectivity with iOS and Android smartphones for remote camera control and still/video sharing is easy. In addition to Wi-Fi® support for connecting to smartphones, NFC technology (near field communication) provides "One-touch connection" to compatible Android smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required.

Reviews
Sony WX500 Digital Camera | Red is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony WX 500 Had my Sony WX- 500 about 2 weeks , so far very impressed, small compact easy to carry on a walk or outing, great for taking quick instant shots of the dog or kids there and then. Would highly recommend, simply to use for the casual photographer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely delighted with this camera I like to take a compact camera with me when bird-watching and garden-visiting. I want something unobtrusive that I can pretty much point and shoot, but that will deliver high-quality pictures. This fits the bill perfectly. The colours and stability of the image are exceptional. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Impressions: Very Good I only bought this camera fairly recently so have not had a chance for a major test but I am very impressed so far. The zoom facility is very good, the photo resolution is also very good. The controls are similar to my husbands Sony HX100 so we can both pick up and use both cameras. The only criticism concerns the dedicated movie button which is close to the shoot button and where I hold with my thumb and more than once so far I have started a movie instead of taking the intended photo. Hopefully this will improve with familiarity. It still fits in my handbag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use compact camera I bought this camera to use on a holiday in the US, as my old camera was almost 10 years old. In general the camera performed well and I especially liked the quality of the photos, the very good zoom, the easy battery recharge, and the wifi connection to download the photos to my iPhone or iPad. Problem areas are: the affect of the sun on using the screen to take photos, which at times was very restrictive, the zoom switch was often difficult to do fine adjustments, and the fact that sometimes the use of the switch to set up the focus was not delicate enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstandingly fast! Bought this camera to replace my trusty Sony HX9v that's 5 years old and has taken over 10,000 photos brilliantly. What a replacement!! Basically the same camera but the WX500 is SO much better. Easy to use. Fast. Accurate. Great zoom. Superb macros. Easy WI-FI. Everything I need all in one camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handy snapper bought mine recently as a replacement, so pleased with it. its lightweight and small but takes such great pictures. Just the job when you don't want to be lugging a larger camera about. the images are crystal clear, colourful and sharp.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very powerful but some design features annoying I bought it as the nearest model to my Fuji Coolpix, whose focus and zoom mechanism began to fail and Fuji don't make a similar model anymore - but for the price, some of the Sony's design features are not as good. eg On/Off button recessed too much - need long nails to activate. Battery must be in camera to charge. Charging light hidden from view unless you are right up close. Had to buy stick-on hand grip - camera slips. Uploading photos to computer is a hassle. No manual.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact neat camera. I bought this camera to replace an older camera. I use a camera every day to catalogue my work = Victorian tile restoration. This model works well in low light etc which is a requirement for me. some of the features are fiddly to access. the on-off button is too small by far. the picture quality is excellent and some of the more advanced features such as access by remote using a smart phone will no doubt come in handy. I will be utilising any handy features as I get more used to the camera , uploading to a pc is very easy either by WI-FI or USB I prefer the latter as a more pure information exchange is achieved.
