First-time camera users won’t be confused by simple shooting menus and a choice of six easy-to-use Scene Selection modes. There’s also a Easy Shooting mode that simplifies operation while offering helpful on-screen instructions. Originally introduced on high-end CyberShot models, enhanced Face Detection can track up to eight faces in a scene, fine-tuning focus and exposure for beautiful portraits. SteadyShot image stabilisation compensates for camera-shake. In tandem with a special High Sensitivity mode (max. ISO 3200), it’s the key to crisp, beautiful images - especially when you’re shooting indoors or in low light without a tripod.
