    The WX500 Compact Digital Camera truly belies its size. Boasting 30x optical zoom and up to 60x with Clear Image Zoom, it's the world's smallest camera to offer such outstanding capability to cover nearly any shooting situation. This far-reaching potential brings distant subjects like wildlife and majestic buildings up close and personal to create powerfully dynamic photos. With Optical SteadyShot™'s precise camera shake detection, you can now achieve the crispest long shots any day and anywhere through a camera that fits right into your pocket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little compact camera This is a great little compact camera loaded with many features that will help any amateur photographer turn out great looking pics. I especially loved the sunset setting in Scenes mode which helps bring out the oranges and reds when taking sunset photos and I achieved some stunning results. The photo quality is very good with a Ziess lens and Sony are very skilled at packing many features into a compact camera that are found on the larger and bulkier cameras. I'v had a Sony Cybershot previously, and am always satisfied with the quality of my photos and can recommend this model, whether it is your main camera, or a compact alternative for travelling.
