The WiFi enabled point-and-shoot from Sony
-Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2013.
We're taking a look at a new tiny camera from Sony.
This is the CybertShot WX80.
So, this is pretty standard stuff as far as digital compact cameras go.
There's a 16.2 megapixel sensor inside this little device and an 8x optical zoom.
There's a bit more zoom you can squeeze out, but it's digital, so you will lose picture quality.
It has 1080p video recording, but a really feature about this camera
is that it's got Wi-Fi sharing.
Now, this is the first time Sony has put its Wi-Fi sharing technology in a camera this small and it's a particularly good idea on their behalf because if you're thinking of buying a small camera like this, you might be wondering why don't I just use my smartphone.
So, the idea is that you take a picture with this, the camera creates a Wi-Fi hotspot, you connect it to your phone using an output that's available for iOS and android, and then you can transfer your pictures across.
It sounds like a good idea and a good way of easily transferring your photos.
Unfortunately, there's no Windows phone app on the horizon.
So, if you're using a phone running Microsoft's operating system, you're out of luck for now.
It's coming out very soon in January and it's gonna cost $199, which isn't too bad for a camera this tiny.
Wait for the full review though where we'll be testing image quality and all the other features.
