SONY CYBER-SHOT DSC-W710 POINT & SHOOT CAMERA (BLACK) PRICE: RS.5199
Compact cameras are much sought after for their versatile design and easy usability since all you really need to do, is point and shoot.
The Sony Cyber Shot DSC W710 uses a powerful 16.1 MP sensor with Super HAD CCD technology. This is an ideal sensor for compact cameras as it is capable of low light photography with decent levels of detail and contrast. This is also a sensor that is more than capable of performing well along a wide range of situations where lighting may vary in density and intensity.
This camera is capable of optical zoom, which is more suited for quality photography as compared to digital zoom. The 5 X Optical Zoom relies on optical input rather than magnifying the digital readout. This means that there is little or no loss of detail when zooming with the lens as compared to the pixel magnification found in digital zoom.
Advanced Flash Technology
This camera uses a powerful and advanced flash for illuminating the subject when it is under low light conditions. The Advanced Flash Technology uses ambient light readings to gauge the flash necessity for illuminating the subjects. This is best seen in the Auto Mode of the camera where the scene recognition can set the values necessary for the flash to fire, or not.
This is a relatively new feature brought out in the Cyber Shot line of cameras. This feature allows you to create truly beautiful portraits with the in-built camera retouching controls. This setting allows you to make the necessary changes to attributes like the skin tone, colour shades, eyes, teeth and other important facial features. You can now say goodbye to unwanted blemishes and give new meaning to the term, picture perfect.
You can now transform ordinary shots in your camera into beautiful scenes thanks to the Picture Effect Mode available on the Cyber Shot camera. Bring out the artist in you with the W710 where various effects can be applied to photos, movies and also to the panorama shots which can be clicked with the 3 Sweep Panorama Effects.
This camera sports an Intelligent Auto Mode which can recognize scenes on its own and apply necessary settings accordingly. You also get a 2.7 inch clear photo LCD screen for previews and view finding.
