Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 Review

September 7, 2015 | Mark Goldstein | Rating star Rating star Rating star Rating star


Want a 30x optical zoom in the smallest possible package? Sony has the camera for you. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 isn’t much larger than the 20x WX350, yet it packs 30x zoom, a tiltable screen, a pop-up flash and a colossal 400-shot capacity battery. There’s also a good set of features, including Wi-Fi with NFC pairing, full manual control and an advanced Superior Auto shooting mode that automatically enhances dynamic range and minimises noise. Image capture is taken care of by Sony’s 18.2MP Exmor R sensor and Bionz X image processer, giving a maximum sensitivity of ISO 12800 and a 10fps continuous shooting speed. All this doesn’t currently come cheap though, with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 costing approximately £271/$328.

Ease of Use

When it comes to cameras, the title of ‘world’s smallest’ often only means an incremental size difference compared to the competition. But Sony has good reason to shout about the WX500 being the world’s smallest 30x optical zoom camera. At 101.6 x 58.1 x 35.5mm, It’s noticeably smaller than rival cameras like the Canon PowerShot SX710 HS, Nikon Coolpix S9900 and Panasonic Lumix TZ70. If it weren’t for the sizable lens bulge, the WX500 is barely bigger than the 20x zoom Cyber-shot WX350.

However, these petite proportions do compromise ergonomics. Where most superzoom compacts have large, grippy finger and thumb rests, the svelte Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has very little to hang on to and is worryingly easy to drop if operating it one-handed. The restricted real estate available for rear panel controls makes the buttons small and tightly packed, and you don’t get a touchscreen to compensate.

The screen is hinged at the top though, making low-angle shooting a doddle, and as it’ll flip up through 180 degrees to face forward, shooting a selfie is just as easy. The display itself is a 3-inch, 922k-dot LCD with excellent colour and contrast accuracy, plus decent viewing angles. Default brightness isn’t particularly high and images can be difficult to see under bright sunlight, but there are five brightness levels. It’d be even better if you could switch to an electronic viewfinder such as Panasonic’s TZ70 and Sony’s HX90V offer, but then you’d need to pay more money.

With its high resolution, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500’s display shows off Sony’s menu design well. When switching between modes you’ll get some attractive graphics with a brief explanation of each mode, and the main menu design is simple but easy to read and navigate. The ordering of some settings is slightly odd though, with key options like ISO sensitivity, metering and white balance relegated to the third page of the camera settings tab.

Otherwise, operating the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is as simple as any other typical compact camera, but there are two automatic modes to choose from. Intelligent Auto detects scenes and applies optimal shooting settings, whereas Superior Auto will use trickery like capturing multiple exposures to increase dynamic range or minimise camera shake and image noise. There’s also a programmable auto mode which lets you take control of focus area, exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, metering and white balance via the ‘Fn’ function button on the rear panel. Alternatively, these settings are also available in the camera’s main menu.

As it’s targeted at photography enthusiasts, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 gets a full manual mode as well as aperture and shutter priority settings. However, as with most small-sensor compact cameras, the aperture range is quite limited, with a minimum of f/8 throughout the focal range, which isn’t great for capturing long exposures. Once you’ve hit upon an ideal set-up for a particular scenario it can be saved using the Memory Recall feature and accessed by switching the mode dial to the ‘MR’ mode.

Various scene modes can be manually selected in the Scene setting, though it’s unlikely you’ll ever need to, given how well the camera automatically detects scene conditions in both of its full auto modes. The only scene setting you would need to manually select is the Sweep Panorama function, and this gets its own position on the mode dial.

The other top panel controls on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 include a tiny power button, the flash release switch and a zoom ring encircling the shutter release. This as two speed settings, so slightly nudging the ring will gradually adjust focal length, whereas if you fully yank it round, the lens zooms fast. It’s a pity Sony hasn’t implemented a temporary ‘zoom out’ feature like Canon’s Zoom Framing Assist in order to quickly zoom out and back in again, as it’s all too easy to lose track of a moving subject when zoomed in to the max.

Move to the rear panel and you’ll find a typical array of buttons, thought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 does feature a control ring around the directional pad for quicker scrolling through menus and images. Pressing the D-pad upwards controls the amount of information in the display overlay, whilst pressing it left selects the drive mode. Options include single, continuous (up to 10fps), self-timer (2, 5 and 10-second delay options) and a continuous self-timer function where the camera will snap multiple images after a delay. Pressing the D-pad down will adjust exposure compensation when in program auto mode, or if you’re in either of the fully automatic modes, it’ll reveal brightness, colour and vividness options, plus the thirteen Picture Effect filters that’ll help spice up a bland shot. Check out the image quality section of this review to see samples.

Another interesting control on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is labelled simply with a question mark and doubles as the delete button in playback mode. When shooting, it’ll display helpful hints and tips applicable to the scene currently detected by the camera’s automatic modes.

Although it appears like the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 doesn’t have a button to activate its Wi-Fi connectivity, you can send images straight to a smart device by pressing the Fn button whilst in playback mode. Alternatively, the camera’s Wi-Fi hotspot is accessible via the main menu where you’ll also find option for transferring to a computer, or viewing images on a smart TV. Then it’s just a matter of downloading Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile app for Android, iOS and Windows Mobile. NFC pairing makes connecting as easy as simply tapping an NFC-enabled smartphone against the camera. Once paired, you can browse the contents of the WX500’s memory card from your smart device and a full-resolution image takes around eight seconds to transfer. Unfortunately the app won’t let you remotely control the camera, but there is a way round that. The WX500 is able to download its own apps from Sony’s PlayMemories camera app store. At the time of writing, only three are compatible with the WX500, but one enables remote camera control.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 will power on and snap a shot in a slightly lethargic 2 seconds, but it’s quick to autofocus. In good light it’ll focus almost instantly, and you’ll get rapid focussing in low light, too. Only when using long focal lengths in low light can there be some slight focus hunting, but it’s nothing serious.

Also worth a mention is the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500’s terrific battery life. The 1240mAh Li-ion rechargeable power pack is capable of a superb 400 shots on a single charge, giving it considerably more staying power than the Canon SX710 HS’ 230-shot capacity and the 300-shot rating of the Nikon S9900 and Panasonic TZ70.

Image Quality

Sony’s 1/2.3-inch, 18.2-megapixel Exmor R sensor and Bionz X image processor proved themselves a very capable combo in last year’s WX350, and the same pairing gives the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 equally impressive image quality.

Consistently accurate exposure metering and vibrant colour reproduction makes for immediately appealing shots, and they’ll also stand up to close scrutiny thanks to the high level of detail that’s captured in good lighting conditions. If you really pixel peep then you’ll a little grain covering images taken even at low ISO sensitivities, but this is normal for a small 1/2.3-inch sensor. The alternative would be to implement more aggressive noise reduction processing, but this usually has the side effect of smearing detail. The WX500 manages to avoid this, preserving distant fine detail in landscape shots and avoiding the painterly appearance that can often plague images from small sensor compact cameras.

In low light, ISO 800 images have impressively low levels of grain noise and no colour speckling. There’s a slight increase in both at ISO 1600, but plenty of detail is retained and photos still present well when viewed at full size. ISO 3200 is the highest standard sensitivity setting, but here there’s a more marked downturn in image quality, with a significant increase in grain and detail softening, though colour speckling is well controlled. Select the Multi Frame NR ISO setting and the camera can go as high as ISO 12800, though the results aren’t pretty.

Raw capture is absent from the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, which seems a shame given the Panasonic TZ70 can shoot raw, but this is more beneficial on paper than in the real world. Cameras like DSLRs are equipped with large sensors that can capture significantly more dynamic range and colour data than JPEG compression can retain. However, the tiny sensors in cameras like the WX500 have extremely small light-gathering photosites that are much less able to exceed the limitations of JPEG compression, therefore reducing the benefit of shooting in raw. Raw capture can also be useful if a camera smooths away fine detail through overzealous noise reduction processing, but the WX500 doesn’t fall into this trap, so it’s unlikely that shooting raw and applying your own noise reduction would preserve more detail.

Optically the 24-720mm-equivalent zoom lens performs very well. Corner sharpness is high and chromatic aberration low. Sony’s Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation works well in bright light, although you’ll need to have a steady hand indoors when shooting at long focal lengths.


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 has seven standard sensitivity settings available at full resolution in single-shot mode, ranging between ISO 80 and 3200. There’s also a Multi Frame NR feature which enables ISO 6400 and 12800 sensitivities by compiling multiple consecutive exposures into a single image with supposedly reduced noise levels.

Focal Range

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500’s 30x zoom lens achieves a focal range of 24-720mm when converted into a 35mm camera format. Here you can see just how big a zoom range that gives you, covering almost any shooting scenario. The lens is also capable of a maximum aperture of f/3.5 at wide-angle, which is unremarkable but fairly typical for a superzoom optic. It means the lens can’t open particularly wide to let light through to the sensor, hence the camera must compensate with longer shutter speeds and higher sensor sensitivities.

File Quality

Two JPEG compression quality options are available to accompany all image sizes: Fine and Standard, with file sizes around 6.5MB and 4.5MB respectively.

Sony quotes a minimum focus distance of 5cm for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500, which is not particularly impressive. We however were able to focus down to around 3cm with the lens at maximum wide angle. This is still no match for the increasing number of compact cameras able to focus as close as 1cm, but given how tricky it is to avoid casting unsightly shadows when so close to a subject, a 3cm macro focus distance isn’t a deal-breaker.

Four flash settings are available: Autoflash, Fill-flash, Slow Sync and Rear Sync. A separate menu option controls whether or not red-eye reduction is active. When disabled, our testing revealed a hint of red-eye, but red-eye reduction successfully eliminates this. The flash itself is reasonably powerful, but there is some vignetting visible at wide angle from a distance of 1.5m.

Image Stabilisation

Sony’s Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation system does a good job of ironing out any camera shake when shooting in good light. In darker conditions some slight blur can show up in some shots if you’re not being extra careful to hold the camera still. Like many other Sony compact cameras, the WX500 doesn’t let you disable image stabilisation, but you can adjust it between Intelligent Active, Active, and Standard modes.

Night-time landscapes can be captured in three ways: Night Scene mode captured this scene with a 1/8th second shutter speed at ISO 2000. The default Superior Auto mode tries to be clever and shoots multiple frames to reduce image noise. However the exposure metering is way off and the result is far too bright. Finally, you can switch to shutter priority mode to record a long exposure. This option was used to shoot the last of our three night-time test images and the result is a 1-second exposure at ISO 200.

iSweep Panorama

Sony’s iSweep Panorama mode gives horizontal and vertical panning options. Three horizontal widths are available: Standard (roughly 120 degrees), Wide (180 degrees) and a full 360-degree pan. There’s no ability to simply stop panning at will though. Whichever width you choose, the result is a seamless panorama with a consistent exposure, albeit considerably downsized to 1080 vertical pixels. To be fair to Sony, most competing compact cameras with sweep panorama modes have similar limitations. If you’re after something more spectacular, you’d be better off manually snapping adjacent overlapping images and stitching them on a computer with additional software.

Compact cameras with 30x optical zoom are becoming fairly commonplace, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 stands out from the crowd by being noticeably smaller than the competition. It’s a pity this comes at the expense of ergonomics though, as the camera could really benefit from better gripping points.

The only other significant shortcoming with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is that you don’t get an electronic viewfinder. But that’s no surprise at this price, as whilst the Panasonic TZ70 and Sony’s HX90V do pack an EVF, they’ll also set you back more money. Ultra HD video recording would also help for future-proofing, but again, this is a feature that’s yet to trickle down to cameras at this price point. The WX500’s lack of raw recording could also be considered a drawback, but as explained in the image quality section, this needn’t be a big worry.

We’ve got no complaints with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500’s image quality and performance though. Sony’s 18.2-megapixel Exmor R sensor and Bionz X processor are capable of producing photos with high detail levels and well-controlled image noise with little evidence of image smoothing. Performance at higher ISO settings is also good, although the Panasonic TZ70 offers similar quality. The WX500 also offers a decent range of creative effects, manual shooting options and terrific battery life.

Currently the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is priced somewhat higher than rival cameras like the Canon SX710 HS and Nikon S9900, but this will likely drop in the coming months. However, if you really want to save cash, yet want the WX500’s compactness, performance and image quality, then consider the WX350. It may only pack 20x optical zoom, but you’ll get the same sensor and processor combo in an even smaller package.

Even at its present retail price of around £271/$328, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a versatile, travel-orientated compact camera with class-leading performance, providing you favour outright portability over ergonomics.
