6 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX500

Full HD Video

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 supports Full HD video (as do the Sony HX95, the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not support this feature. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

2% Larger Display Diagonal

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is 3" screen, and so do the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99. That's 0.05" larger than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (2.95"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

HDMI

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has an HDMI (as do the Sony HX95, the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

Wi-Fi

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 supports Wi-Fi (as do the Sony HX95, the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not support this feature. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Better Kagoo Score

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 scored 85, the Sony HX99 scored 86 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 85.

More Popular

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a more popular choice amongst buyers.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX500

72g Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has a weight of 209g, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 is a 137g digital camera (72g lighter), the Sony HX95 is a 217g digital camera (8g heavier), the Sony HX99 is a 216g digital camera (7g heavier) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (244g heavier). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is an 18.2MP digital camera, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99. That's 6MP lower than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (24.2MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Only 11520 X 1080 Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 supports a still image resolution of 11520 x 1080, but the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99 support a still image resolution of 12416 x 1856. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 support. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

74% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a 120x digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Sony HX95. That's 339x smaller than the Sony HX99 (459x) and 112x bigger than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (8x). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

38,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 and the Sony HX95. That's 6,400 higher than the Sony HX99 (6,400) and 38,400 lower than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (51,200). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as is the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350), but the Sony HX95, the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Sony HX95, the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 support. More ...

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 does not have a GPS (As does the the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99 have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Only 400 Battery Life

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 takes 400 battery life, however the Sony HX99 only takes 460 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 does not feature bluetooth, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350, the Sony HX95, the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 do. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

More Expensive by £80

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is £80 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350.

Fewer Sellers

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is only stocked by 6 sellers, but the Sony α Alpha A6500 is stocked by 12 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Five Months

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is five months older than the Sony HX95 and five months older than the Sony HX99.

Expert Review Rating is Worse

The average expert rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is 80%, whereas the average expert rating of the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 85% (based on 102 reviews).

User Review Rating is Significantly Worse

The average user rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is only 73%, whereas the average user rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 is 84% (based on 338 reviews), the Sony HX95 is 95% (based on 4 reviews), the Sony HX99 is 81% (based on 31 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 95% (based on 472 reviews).

The cheapest price that we could find for the Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 in the UK is £248.99 and in total we found 6 prices for it.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HX95

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Sony HX95 supports a still image resolution of 12416 x 1856, and so does the Sony HX99, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (11520 x 1080) and twice as high still image resolution as the Sony α Alpha A6500 (4240 x 2400). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 support. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Smile Detection

The Sony HX95 features smile detection (as do the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Sony HX95 supports Full HD video, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Higher Video Resolution

The Sony HX95 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so are the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

0.05" Larger Display Diagonal

The Sony HX95 has a display diagonal of 3" (as do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony HX99), however the Sony α Alpha A6500 is only a 2.95" screen digital camera (0.05" smaller). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Better Kagoo Score

The Sony HX95 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 scored 85, the Sony HX99 scored 86 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 85.

Five Months Newer

The Sony HX95 was released 11 months ago, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 was released 16 months ago, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 was released three years ago and the Sony α Alpha A6500 was released 18 months ago

User Reviews Are a Lot Better

The average user review score of the Sony HX95 is 95% based on 4 reviews, but the average rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is 73% (based on 6 reviews), the average rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 is 84% (based on 338 reviews) and the average rating of the Sony HX99 is 81% (based on 31 reviews).

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HX95

Heavier

The Sony HX95 is a 217g digital camera. That's 8g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (209g), 80g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 (137g), 1g heavier than the Sony HX99 (216g) and 236g lighter than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (453g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

25% Lower Megapixels

The Sony HX95 has a megapixels of 18.2MP (as do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 and the Sony HX99), however the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 24.2MP digital camera (6MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

339x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony HX95 has a digital zoom of 120x (as does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500), but the Sony HX99 is a 459x digital zoom digital camera (339x bigger) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is an 8x digital zoom digital camera (112x smaller). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Sony HX95 is only 12,800 maximum ISO speed (as do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350), but the Sony HX99 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 lower) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (38,400 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

90 Less Battery Life

The Sony HX95 is a digital camera that takes 370 battery life, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 only takes 400 Shots battery life and the Sony HX99 only takes 460 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

£166 More Expensive

The Sony HX95 is more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 by £86 and more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 by £166.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 5 retailers sells the Sony HX95, however 6 sellers sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and 12 retailers sell the Sony α Alpha A6500. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Less Popular

The Sony HX95 is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HX95 in the UK is £335.00 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HX99

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Sony HX99 supports a still image resolution of 12416 x 1856, and so does the Sony HX95, which is twice as high still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (11520 x 1080) and twice as high still image resolution as the Sony α Alpha A6500 (4240 x 2400). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 support. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

A Lot Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony HX99 has a digital zoom of 459x, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony HX95 are both only 120x digital zoom digital cameras (339x smaller) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is only an 8x digital zoom digital camera (451x smaller). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Smile Detection

The Sony HX99 features smile detection (as do the Sony HX95 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Sony HX99 supports Full HD video, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX95 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Higher Video Resolution

The Sony HX99 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so are the Sony HX95 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Marginally Larger Display Diagonal

Sony HX99 is 3" screen (as do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony HX95), but the Sony α Alpha A6500 is only a 2.95" screen digital camera (0.05" smaller). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Touchscreen

The Sony HX99 has a touchscreen (as does the Sony α Alpha A6500), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 and the Sony HX95 do not have this feature. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

HDMI

The Sony HX99 has an HDMI, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX95 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

110 More Battery Life

The Sony HX99 takes 460 battery life, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 only takes 400 Shots battery life, the Sony HX95 only takes 370 Shots battery life and the Sony α Alpha A6500 only takes 350 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Wi-Fi

The Sony HX99 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX95 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Bluetooth

The Sony HX99 features bluetooth, and so do the Sony HX95 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 do not. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Five Months Newer

The Sony HX99 is five months newer than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, two years newer than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 and seven months newer than the Sony α Alpha A6500

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HX99

27% Heavier

The Sony HX99 is a 216g digital camera. That's 7g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (209g), 79g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 (137g), 1g lighter than the Sony HX95 (217g) and 237g lighter than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (453g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Lower Megapixels

The Sony HX99 has a megapixels of 18.2MP (as do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 and the Sony HX95), but the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 24.2MP digital camera (6MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

44,800 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Sony HX99 is a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 and the Sony HX95 are all 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (6,400 higher) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (44,800 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSCWX350

6MP Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 has a megapixels of 18.2MP (as do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99), whereas the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 24.2MP digital camera (6MP higher). More ...

Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Lower Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so is the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Sony HX95, the Sony HX99 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

27 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony α Alpha A6500

20% Higher Megapixels

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has a megapixels of 24.2MP, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99 are all only 18.2MP digital cameras (6MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Dustproof

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is dustproof, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99 are not. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Smile Detection

The Sony α Alpha A6500 features smile detection (as do the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Full HD Video

The Sony α Alpha A6500 supports Full HD video, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not. More ...

Cameras with full HD video recording can capture video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD video usually appears sharper as more pixels re being recorded.

Higher Video Resolution

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, and so are the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 support. More ...

The Sony α Alpha A6500 also supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and 1280 x 720 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Touchscreen

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has a touchscreen (as does the Sony HX99), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 and the Sony HX95 do not have this feature. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

HDMI

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has an HDMI, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

Wi-Fi

The Sony α Alpha A6500 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 does not. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Bluetooth

The Sony α Alpha A6500 features bluetooth, and so do the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 do not. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

On average reviewers thought the Sony α Alpha A6500 took good videos. Over 60 people thought that the Sony Alpha A6500 was brilliant for video recording.

Better for Portrait Photography

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is better for portrait photography than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, Sony HX95 and Sony HX99. More ...

When ranking cameras for their skill in taking portrait photos, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. The most important of these are image resolution, sensor size and image stabilisation. A larger image resolution means the portrait will be more detailed, while the sensor and stabiliser means that the portrait won’t be blurry at all. On top of that, a pre-flash can help reduce the chance of red eye, and smile detection can help find that perfect moment Finally, extras like a handheld remote control or a self timer can help with taking self-portraits and group shots.

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has a minimum aperture number of Depends on lens.
Better for Landscape Photography

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is better for landscape photography than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350, Sony HX95 and Sony HX99. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph landscapes, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes. The most important of these is optical zoom capability, since it allows you to take detailed photos of particular parts of the landscape from a long way away and still have them come out in good detail. Weight and battery life are also very important, since you may be carrying your camera with your for a long time while walking around - you want it to be light enough to not be a hassle, and with a good strong battery, so it doesn’t run out of juice mid-way through the trip! Finally we have taken into account several important factors, such as environmental protection (especially water and dust resistance) and whether the camera comes with GPS, in order to pin-point exactly where you took the photo for later reference.

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has an optical zoom of unknown, has a weight of 453g and takes 350 Shots battery life.
Better for Sports Photography

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is better for sports photography than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350. More ...

One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 51,200, takes 350 Shots battery life and has a camera shutter speed of 1s.
Better for Wildlife Photography

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is better for wildlife photography than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500. More ...

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph wildlife, we've concentrated on a number of key attributes. Optical zoom is important to allow you to take clear, detailed photos of animals without having to get physically close to them. A high ISO sensitivity will help take cleaner photos in low-light conditions. Finally, since animals tend to move (and sometimes quite fast), we consider a trio of the camera's shutter speed, auto focus power and whether it has an image stabilisation system or not. All three of these will help you take crisper, cleaner photos of fast moving objects.

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has an optical zoom of unknown, has 425 Auto Focus (AF) points, has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 51,200 and has a camera shutter speed of 1s.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony α Alpha A6500

42% Heavier

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera. That's 244g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 (209g), 316g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 (137g), 236g heavier than the Sony HX95 (217g) and 237g heavier than the Sony HX99 (216g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Sony α Alpha A6500 supports a still image resolution of 4240 x 2400, which is half as high still image resolution as the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99 (12416 x 1856). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 support. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Not Waterproof

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is not waterproof, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99 are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

Hugely Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has a digital zoom of 8x, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Sony HX95 are both 120x digital zoom digital cameras (112x bigger) and the Sony HX99 is a 459x digital zoom digital camera (451x bigger). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Moderately Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has a display diagonal of 2.95", however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99 are all 3" screen digital cameras (0.05" larger). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Sony α Alpha A6500 does not have a GPS (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350, the Sony HX95 and the Sony HX99 do. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

110 Less Battery Life

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is a digital camera that takes 350 battery life, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 only takes 400 Shots battery life, the Sony HX95 only takes 370 Shots battery life and the Sony HX99 only takes 460 Shots battery life. More ...

We do not know the number of battery life taken by the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350. It is possible that it does not take any battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony α Alpha A6500 has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 scored 88, the Sony HX95 scored 88 and the Sony HX99 scored 86.

£506 More Expensive

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 by £426, more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSCWX350 by £506, more expensive than the Sony HX95 by £340 and more expensive than the Sony HX99 by £241.

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 by two months, older than the Sony HX95 by seven months and older than the Sony HX99 by seven months.

Less Popular

Has a Worse Price

The Sony α Alpha A6500 reviewers thought the Sony α Alpha A6500 has a worse price.

Has a Worse Battery That Lasted a Long Time

Our analysis of the Sony α Alpha A6500 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Sony α Alpha A6500 has a worse battery that lasted a long time.

A Worse Size

The Sony α Alpha A6500 reviewers thought the Sony α Alpha A6500 was a worse size.

Has a Worse Lens

The Sony α Alpha A6500 reviewers thought the Sony α Alpha A6500 has a worse lens.

Worse for Everyday Photography

The Sony α Alpha A6500 is worse for everyday photography than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, Sony HX95 and Sony HX99. More ...

When ranking cameras for everyday use, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.

The cheapest price that we could find for the α Alpha A6500 in the UK is £674.99 and in total we found 12 prices for it.
