I am not singing “What’s the difference?” of DR DRE song. But, that’s quite perfect to describe the two new Sony Cybershot W-series cameras for March 2012, DSC-WX50 and DSC-WX70, right? Both cameras bring the same design with identical specs. They are twin.
So, what is the difference between DSC-WX50 and DSC-WX70? I don’t know if you noticed it. Yes, it’s only about the LCD monitor. The WX50 employs a 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD with button operations on the right side. Meanwhile the WX70 does not like button operations on its rear body. It moved all the operation buttons to its big screen, a 3.0-inch XtraFine LCD touchscreen. Yo, that’s the difference.
Regarding to its main specs, both new cameras features a 16.2MP 1/2.3-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor, BIONZ processor, a 25mm wide angle Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 5x optical zoom and 10x Clear Image zoom, Optical SteadyShot Active mode, memory card slot, mini HDMI, and USB port. Thus, the cameras boast Full HD (1920×1080/60i) movie recording and 16.2MP still images. Your enjoyment of shooting is not yet over. They also provide you with Picture Effects, 3D Sweep Panorama, 3D Still images, Dual record and others.
Dressed in 92.2(W) x 52.0(H) x 19.1(D) mm and 114g with sleek design, Both Sony Cybershot DSC-WX50 and DSC-WX70 are going to hit market in mid-March 2012 in MSRP $230 (WX70 – black, silver, pink, violet and white) and $200 (WX50 – black and silver). [Dandy Gadget Source]
