Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W310 is a compact digital camera from the company’s 2010 line-up. It features 12.1 megapixels, 4x optical zoom lens and a 2.7-inch TFT Clear Photo LCD screen and an array of intelligent functions.
The camera is equipped with a 28mm wide-angle lens (which in fact became quite ordinary thing on modern digicams) for convenient shooting of wide landscapes and cityscapes and large groups of people. However, the lens is not stabilized, so you have to rely on the camera’s SteadyShot™ image stabilization that combat blur caused by camera shake by raising sensitivity level.
The DSC-W310 is designed for those who require a device that would do all photographic job for them. It offers a special Easy mode with Intelligent Scene recognition technology. It detects the scene being shot and selects the optimum setting while you just point at the subject and press the shutter button.
There’re also 8 pre-set scenes in the camera: High Sensitivity, Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Portrait, Landscape, Beach, Snow, and Gourmet.
The camera features Face Detection function to optimize settings for people’s faces in a frame, and the Smile shutter function to automatically trigger the shutter hust the moment a person you photograph smiles.
