Comparing Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 vs Canon IXUS 255 HS

1. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150

16 Reasons why Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 is better

Comparing Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 vs Canon IXUS 255 HS

1.Substantially more megapixels (photo)
18.2MPvs 12.1MP (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
2.Sizably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10fpsvs 2.4fps (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
117gvs 144g (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
4.Notably higher maximum light sensitivity
12800ISOvs 6400ISO (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
5.Measurably better video recording quality
1,080 x 60fpsvs 1,080 x 24fps (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
6.Explicitly less body volume
117.04cm³vs 123.35cm³ (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
95mmvs 97.2mm (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
56mmvs 56.4mm (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
22mmvs 22.5mm (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
10.Supports AVCHD format
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
11.Clearly longer maximum focal length
250mmvs 240mm (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
12.Has manual exposure
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
This allows to manually set the exposure.
13.Noticeably longer exposure time
30svs 15s (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
14.Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
15.Has an accelerometer
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes from a vertical to a horizontal position.
16.Hell of a lot cheaper
$140 vs $1140 its more than 8 times cheaper

2. Canon IXUS 255 HS

8 Reasons why Canon IXUS 255 HS is better

Comparing Canon IXUS 255 HS vs Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150

1.Distinctly faster maximum shutter speed
0.0005svs 0.000625s (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
2.Has GPS
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150)
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
3.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150)
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
4.Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150)
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
5.Measurably wider aperture at minimum focal length
3vs 3.3 (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150)
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
6.Has a hot shoe
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150)
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
7.Shorter minimum focal length
24mmvs 25mm (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
8.More advanced digic 5 image processor
