16.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor
The Sony DSC-WX70 features a 16.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera’s lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor delivers extremely fast up to 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080i movie modes.
Optical zoom plus Clear image zoom
Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.
Full HD 1080/60i Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD video.1 This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV.2 With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.
Capture the decisive moment with up to 10fps Capture full 16.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects.
Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode for blur-free movies even while walking. Camera-shake compensation using Optical SteadyShot/Active Mode has been improved with the addition of new electronic image stabilization.Now it’s easier than ever to obtain sharp, blur-free movies even when zooming in unsteady situations, such as shooting with one hand while walking.
3.0-inch LCD touchscreen The 3.0-inch Xtra Fine LCD display (921K dots) with touch screen makes it easy to glide through menus and preview live
Picture Effects. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.
3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama mode3 Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities.3 Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way.
Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode With Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR 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.
Background Defocus DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now our point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear.
Picture Effect for more expressive photos Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select camera models have up to nine different effects.
Superior Auto mode Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The DSC-WX70 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 movies, making it easy to get the best shot.
Face Detection technology Face Detection technology recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural.
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 andindicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can now be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. 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. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the 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.
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects 33 different types of scenes and, within just 1/30th of a second, selects the appropriate camera settings. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep.
Natural Flash Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images.
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.
Sweep Multi Angle mode In Sweep Multi Angle mode, the DSC-WX70 takes 15 images at different angles as it sweeps across the scene. By tilting the camera during playback, the camera’s Gyro Sensor detects motion and displays the image in a 3D-like view on the camera’s LCD.

They could have made the interface much better but, it works, and I suppose you can get used to it. As for the 3D, I took a 3D picture, plugged it up to my TV, which detected the 3D, but there was not a 3D effect at any kind. I have a vizio passive 3D TV. Anyway, it could not have been that good of 3D regardless with only one lens, must be some kind of fake 3D effect.
I will be keeping this camera regardless of the shortcomings, because it feels nice, has a large screen, photo effects, and it takes good pictures.
It's not a high-end camera, but it doesn't cost that much either. It's a great value for the money and if you're like me, aren't a photographer and don't have plans to become one, you can still get great pictures with this camera knowing absolutely nothing about photography.
I had the previous version of this camera, as did my husband. It had a toggle switch to go from photo to panorama to video. On both cameras, the toggle switch broke. This camera has the movie switch on the screen. So it is not a physical switch. That seems like a great improvement since both of ours broke. The only problem I have found is that I push movie and nothing happens. It takes several times to activate the video, which means I often miss the beginning of what I want to tape. I also have trouble turning it off (but have found if I just turn the camera off, that take care of it - which I do when taping my kids on an amusement park ride that I am riding, too). I have bee working with it for weeks & it still doesn't seem to help. It is faster than the toggle switch was, but still a lower than I would like.
I also wanted to mention that this one uses a different size charger port than the previous version of this camera. So your old charger/UBS port cables won't work on this one. Luckily, my cell phone charger is the same, so I have been able to use that to charge & keep the download cord on my PC.
My only other suggestion would be for it to have a force flash. It seems to take better photos when the flash goes, regardless of the light. It only has auto & no flash. It was the same of the old camera.
Overall, I have been very pleased with the photos & video.
