Manufacturer's Description

Serious imaging performance made easy

Superb image quality and serious features in a stylish, easy to use package. Powerful 5x Optical Zoom with wide angle plus HD movie recording for extra versatility and convenience.

Dont worry about the right settings

It can be hard judging the best camera settings to use in tricky situations like twilight portraits and sun-drenched backlit beach scenes. Intelligent Scene Recognition automatically adjusts exposure and other settings, helping you achieve better-looking results with less effort.

Pack more into every scene

Dramatic landscapes, architectural shots, interiors and even family scenes can produce disappointing results when a scene gets cut off at the edges. A wide angle lens lets you pack more into the picture without having to stand further back from the subject.

Beautiful portraits made simple

Now its easy to capture beautiful, smiling portraits of friends and family. Enhanced Face Detection automatically adjusts camera settings for clear, crisp results with natural skin tones. Smile Shutter fires the shutter automatically when your subject smiles to capture those happy moments.

Enjoy the show

Here’s a great way to add an extra dimension to enjoying your precious pictures and clips. View colourful, dynamic ‘slideshows’ on the camera screen, with exciting transitions and a choice of music tracks. Or connect to your HD television for a view of the big picture.

The camera that thinks its a camcorder

Left your camcorder behind? Don’t worry: now you can capture crisp, clear HD movie clips at an incredible 30 frames per second for smooth, clear action. Watch the results on your BRAVIA television: you’ll be amazed by the quality, detail and colour.
