Sony Cyber-shot WX150 Digital Camera Review$249.99
It's impressive enough that the WX150 records 1080/60i AVCHD videos at a few quality settings, but it can also record 1080p/30fps MP4 videos as well, plus 720p and VGA. That's more video options than still-photo options. Find out how the performed in our video image quality test./r:link_to_content
Aside from exposure compensation, video mode is entirely automated. No control over ISO/gain, aperture, or shutter speed is available.
The WX150 does a commendable job adjusting autofocus and exposure on its own, quickly and accurately. Scene modes and picture effects can both be used while shooting video.
The full 10x optical zoom range is available during filming. It moves more slowly through the focal range than it does in still-photo mode, but it looks more cinematic that way, and prevents the motor noise from being picked up by the internal microphones.
It's autofocus only here, and the camera is actually pretty good at adjusting focus quickly, quietly, and accurately.
The WX150 has a built-in stereo microphone. Unfortunately, it's located on the top of the camera, exactly where your fingers tend to rest. Watch out for muffled sounds.
