Clear Photo LCD
2.8-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus display

Full HD 1080 Full HD 1080@60i   
Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 Full HD. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV5.
G Lens
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.
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.
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.
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.
3D still image   
Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities4. Images will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way.
Optical SteadyShot Optical SteadyShot image stabilization   
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality.
iSweep Panorama   
With iSweep Panorama just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a panoramic image. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion.
Superior Auto Mode 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 36 scenes for still images and 44 scenes for movies, making it easy to get the best shot.
Hi-speed Linear Focus   
Life moves fast, your camera’s focus needs to move just as fast. The Hi-speed linear focus achieves dramatically clearer images with an auto focus that moves just as fast as your life.
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.
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.
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.
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 content5.
Smile Shutter 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.
Face Detection technology Face Detection technology
Sony’s Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
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.
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.
Sweep Multi Angle Mode   
In Sweep Multi Angle mode, the camera 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.
Works with iMovie 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 software2 for PC and iMovie (sold separately) for Mac systems.

I've been waiting for this camera for a couple months and I finally got it through Amazon. I've used it for 5 days now and so far I am very happy with this little camera.

Pros:
1. I bought this camera especially for its low light capiablity. I don't like to use falsh, but often need to take pictures of kids or cat indoors. It works really well.
2. The Backlight Correction HDR (inside SCN mode) works exceptionally well! Great for those high contrast outdoor sunny day situations. I'll post the sample photos for you to compare.
3. Soft Skin (under SCN mode) take portrait with softer, smoother skin (less wrinkles and pimples). My skin looks much better in the picturtes!
4. iSweep Panorama is very easy to use and the result is amazing! Great for landscape photos.
5. Surprisingly, the "Date Stamp" feature is back on WX-10!!! I used to use the Date stamp on my first Sony digital camera for all the pictures I took for my son, yet I could not find any Sony camera that still had this feature when I need to get my 2nd Sony camera. WX-10 is my 3rd Sony camera and I am glad this option is back. I know many people hate to see the date printed on the photos, but I'd prefer to have the dates on my son's photos, so I can see when they were taken and how old he was in the pictures. This feature can be found under "Menu" - "Tool box icon" Shooting Settings" - scroll down - "Write Date" - choose "On"!
6. Under "Timer", there're 2 settings for "self portrait". Just choose it and point the camera to your self, the camera can detect your face and take the picture for you (without having to press the shutter button!) amazing!
7. The wide angle lens is really nice.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've taken about 500 shots with this camera, under some fairly difficult conditions, and have mixed feelings about this camera.

The great:
#######
1. It is easy to carry around
2. Its lens is not only bright (f2.4) but is also wide (24-26mm). This works great for indoor group photographs.
3. It is relatively intuitive to use, and you don't really need a manual. In addition, the entire manual is accessible on the camera!
5. Its panorama mode is utterly simple to use, and the results are spectacular.
6. Decent ergonomics - the controls are easy to find and operate.
7. It has a very capable flash - throwing light about 10 feet away.
8. The 7x optical zoom is awesome.
9. You can use standard Class 4 SDHC cards! No need to buy those memory sticks.
10. Supports in-camera HDR, which works rather well.

The not so good:
############
1. While the automatic exposure seems to be fine, the image was often noisy - even in reasonable lighting conditions.
2. The images taken would benefit from a bit of sharpening during post processing.
3. Auto focus struggled at night, around a campfire. Most (but not all) of my photos were too unfocused to be of use.
4. You need Sony's software to get at the video you shoot.

Other Thoughts
###########

Though small in size, this camera is big on features. It comes with an amazing amount of functionality - including panoramic stitching, HDR with auto bracketing, and 1920x1080/60i video recording.

Unfortunately, some of its options can be confusing. E.g., what is the difference between "Intelligent" Auto, and "Superior" Auto?

Pros:

1) Battery Life is great.

2) Very small and lightweight, but well constructed.

3) Very fast focusing.

4) Photos look great.

5) Works great in low light (I've permanently turned off the flash in each setting).

6) Going back into Scene mode remembers your last Scene choice (Nice for testing other modes for the same shot).

7) Has exposure bracketing ~ so you can manually create HDR photos.

Cons:

1) My huge gripe is that the built-in HDR function is ONLY available as a dedicated mode under Scenes. The HDR feature needs to be available under the Program, Manual, & both auto modes.

2) The camera is slow to be ready when changing to the Scene & Auto modes.

3) It has a unique USB cable, so it can't be used with other devices (none that I have anyway).

4) Aperture spacing in Manual mode only has high & low (yep, only two options). It would be nice to get a middle aperture setting.

I researched small cameras like this one for a couple of weeks before I finally ordered this. I studied features, and read about every review I could find. I feel like my efforts paid off! I just got this camera today. It was easy to charge, & I did that first (It took a little over two hours,) I just unplugged it, and started playing with it about 15 minutes ago. I'm so excited I could do cartwheels!

First of all, I haven't read the little manual that comes with it, and I haven't put the disc in my computer yet. I'm more of a 'figure it out as I go & consult the manual as needed' kind of gal. So far this little camera is extremely intuitive and user friendly. When you turn it on, it prompts you to enter a few things such as language, time zone, screen display colors, etc. Those things all went very smooth. I chose white screen background with black lettering and find it is very easy on my eyes. And the special anti-reflective coating and clear screen display are wonderful! I can easily see it in bright sunlight and do not miss having a viewfinder at all. The dials on the back are quite a bit smaller than my old camera, but I did not have any trouble adapting to them. The dials are scored/serrated on the edges and that makes it very easy to turn them. I have only taken a few photos, but I am immensely pleased with all of them.

I am especially impressed with the sweep panorama mode. I live in beautiful Western Montana where I enjoy taking tons of scenic panos. Always before I used stitching software to put the individual photos together. Oftentimes I would stitch manually because I was not satisfied with my software's automatic stitching mode.
Realtors and other pano fans will know what I'm talking about.
