The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9 is one of five 3D-compliant digital cameras released together in early 2011. Unlike the DSC-WX10, it uses a 25mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 5x optical-zoom lens that’s  better geared for group or landscape shots. In addition, it downgrades from 1080/60p to 1080/60i, though that’s still a fairly high resolution. Featured is a 16.2MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor, a 3” LCD display, and support for 3D still-image capture. Since the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9 is especially designed for panorama shots, it hosts an iSweep Panorama function wherein the user merely pans the landscape and lets the camera do the rest.

Additional Information

All five models (DSC-TX10, DSC-TX100V, DSC-HX7V, DSC-WX10, DSC-WX9) use a single lens and imager to produce 3D still images. They do this by taking two consecutive pictures in different focus positions. These images are then combined to create a 3D effect.
