On average Sony compact cameras have good ratings as do all digital cameras built by Sony.

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 32 times zoom factor, the DSC-WX80 has a fairly big digital zoom compared to most of the other compact cameras that have been available for around the same time as the DSC-WX80. The digital zooms of cameras that are a similar age to the DSC-WX80 range from 1x to 810x.

Unlike most of the other comparable spec cameras that have been available for around the same time as the DSC-WX80 which do not support Full HD video, the Sony DSC-WX80 supports Full HD video.
