Simply Her (Singapore) - - Smartshopper Road Test -

$499, from Sony Store, Sony Cen­tre and ma­jor elec­tri­cal stores SPEC­I­FI­CA­TIONS 18.2-megapixel res­o­lu­tion, 20x op­ti­cal zoom, 3-inch screen, Wi-Fi en­abled.

SIZE The small­est and thinnest at 166g, but sturdy. US­ING IT The but­tons felt as if they were crammed at the back of the cam­era, but the func­tions were easy to fig­ure out. It’s easy to se­lect a shoot­ing mode us­ing the dial on top. PER­FOR­MANCE As with the Pana­sonic, I cap­tured clear shots of peo­ple 10m away. When us­ing the 20x op­ti­cal zoom, the photo on the no­tice­board was sharp but the darker ar­eas were a tad grainy. In auto mode, colours were vivid and warm. EF­FECTS It has toy-cam­era, minia­ture, il­lus­tra­tion, par­tial­colour (picks up only shades of a se­lected hue) and wa­ter­colour ef­fects. I liked the beauty-ef­fect func­tion that smoothed my skin in por­traits. VER­DICT It doesn’t have the best zoom lens, but its small size makes it the best travel com­pan­ion.
