Comparing Canon IXUS 255 HS vs Sony Cyber-shot WX200

1. Canon IXUS 255 HS

14 Reasons why Canon IXUS 255 HS is better

Comparing Canon IXUS 255 HS vs Sony Cyber-shot WX200

1.Explicitly faster maximum shutter speed
0.0005svs 0.000625s (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
2.A little higher resolution
784 x 588pxvs 905 x 509px (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
3.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
4.Has AF tracking
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
5.Has GPS
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
6.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
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.
7.Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
8.A little bit bigger screen size
3"vs 2.7" (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
9.Notably more microphone(s)
2vs 1 (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
10.Significantly wider aperture at minimum focal length
3vs 3.3 (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
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.
11.Has a hot shoe
Yesvs No (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
12.Significantly longer exposure time
15svs 4s (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
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.
13.Shorter minimum focal length
24mmvs 25mm (Sony Cyber-shot WX200)
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.
14.More advanced digic 5 image processor

2. Sony Cyber-shot WX200

13 Reasons why Sony Cyber-shot WX200 is better

Comparing Sony Cyber-shot WX200 vs Canon IXUS 255 HS

1.Sizably more megapixels (photo)
18.2MPvs 12.1MP (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
2.Substantially 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.
121gvs 144g (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
4.Explicitly 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.Clearly better video recording quality
1,080 x 30fpsvs 1,080 x 24fps (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
92.3mmvs 97.2mm (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
7.Significantly less body volume
104.47cm³vs 123.35cm³ (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
8.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
52.4mmvs 56.4mm (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
21.6mmvs 22.5mm (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
11.Noticeably 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 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.
13.Has WiMAX
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 255 HS)
WiMAX technology is a standard based wireless technology which is used to provide internet access and multimedia services at very high speed and it can cover about 30 miles.
