Introduction

The Sony WX150 falls in the middle of the 2012 Cyber-shot lineup. It's built around a better sensor and longer zoom range than Sony's lower-end ultracompacts, but isn't burdened with any high-end bloat like GPS, WiFi, or a touchscreen.

It's a straightforward point-and-shoot for casual, novice, and generally easy-going photographers, and ends up being a strong value for the money as a result. Read on to see how it stacks up to the competition.

The Sony WX150 will be available in mid-May for $249 in black, silver, red, and blue shades.
