G lens”, “Exmor R” CMOS sensor and “BIONZ”
High performance “G lens” and “Exmor R” CMOS sensor’s rapid throughput combines with the super-fast processing power of “BIONZ” to provide shooting functions below.

7x (24mm) Professional-quality optical zoom G-Lens
G lenses are used in top of the line digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras and advanced pro-sumer HD camcorders. Capture the action up close with the 7x optical zoom. A wide angle of 24mm allows you to take wider shots of the scene or group in crowded spaces.

Manual operation
Sometimes automatic just won’t do. The manual operation function puts the control back in your hands to get the shots that you want, how you want them. Make minor adjustments to white balance, Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority.

Intelligent Sweep Panorama™ mode
With Intelligent Sweep Panorama™ mode just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a high resolution panoramic image providing the ability to zoom in on small details. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion.

Digital Zoom
Capturing the right shot at the right moment has never been so easy. Digital zoom brings the action up close to get that perfect shot, every time.

HDMI™ output
The High-Definition Multimedia Interface™ (HDMI™) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. HDMI connects digital audio/video sources such as a compatible camcorder, Blu-ray Disc™ player, a personal computer, a video game console, or an AV receiver to a compatible digital audio device and/or video monitor such as a digital television (DTV). Easily connect your Cyber-shot® camera via HDMI cable to any compatible HDMI compatible device to easily enjoy and upload content.5

Motion Detection
Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces.

Compatible with PC and Mac® Systems
The high definition, AVCHD, video captured with the DSC-WX10 can be used with the provided Picture Motion Browser software for PC and iMovie® (sold separately) for Mac® systems.

2.8" (460K dots) Clear Photo™ LCD Plus display
Compose and show off your images on the large 2.8” (460K dots) Clear Photo™ LCD Plus display, which features a special anti-reflective coating for sharp visibility, even in bright sunlight.

Backlight Correction HDR
Don’t miss a single detail in high contrast shots. The built in backlight correction analyzes the image and automatically adjusts accordingly to give you a perfectly lit shot. Backlight Correction HDR helps correct for this by taking three pictures at different exposure settings and processing the best elements of each into a single image for more natural looking shots.

3D still images and 3D Sweep Panorama™
Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama™ capabilities.4 Images will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way.

Superior Auto mode
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using backlight correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology.Superior Auto intelligently detects 33 scenes for still images and 44 scenes for movies, making it easy to get the best shot.

Soft Skin mode
Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot.

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 be used together with Smile Shutter™ mode. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.

Anti-blink Function
It’s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.

Includes Sony® PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Software ver. 5.5
