Sharper images

The Cyber-shot WX220 uses advanced optical SteadyShot to compensate for camera shake, giving you sharper stills and videos. It compensates for even subtle movement, even when you're zooming in close or in dim conditions. Intelligent Active Mode makes up for blurring from camera shake, keeping video footage perfectly smooth.

10x optical zoom

Thanks to 10x optical zoom, the Sony Cyber-shot WX220 lets you snap each moment in stunning detail. Its high-quality lens lets you take 25 mm wide angle to 250 mm telephoto shots. Even if you're at a distance, you can still capture beautiful, rich images of your subject.

Barnsley GB Point & shoot
Panoramic shots were good
But having a manual to take with you on holiday to be able to use the camera to full advantage rung Sony up to ask about one and told to print sheets off computer. There are nearly 100 pages to this manual. If I had known there had not been one in the box probably would have looked for something else. I was not told I would have to go on line to find out how to work the camera when I was in store.
