Photo Magic Memories With Sony WX80 Digital Camera

Updated on October 12, 2015

Photographs from the beginning of the earliest cameras are an amazing miracle, able to catch a second, a moment in time, a view, an expression and a time that can be shared and enjoyed not only from the heart and mind, but in a snapshot, a computer, a smartphone app and that moment can live on for generations to come. The Sony DSC-WX80 Digital Camera has made these miracle moments even easier than ever before to love and share.

I have always loved the fun of sharing photos and memories. I remember looking at my Mom's photo album while she told me stories of her friends growing up, her awesome fashions that were so generationally different. My grandparents captured in black and white. Photo albums of my children, from birth and school days, graduations and birthday parties - fun times caught forever in a snap.

Now it is even more of a snap to capture amazing, funny, heartfelt moments and share than quicker than the blink of an eye.

The Sony WX80 Digital Camera not only takes the most beautiful, full size photos comparable to the most expensive digital camera pictures, and not only can you choose cool settings like flash, no flash, auto, as well as choose to manually set your camera settings or auto go it - you can choose to blur your background, or go black and white with one color focus (it's really cool) but you can do all of this so easy right from the controls on the back of this beautiful, slim camera. No having to go into the menu mode, press arrow right, arrow left yikes, forget it the picture moment is over! So easy and user friendly, well even an amateur like me is snapping photography like moments and enjoying every minute of it.

So, you would think that's the best of the camera, and all of it's user friendly cool options are so great, but this camera can do something no other digital camera I have ever owned before can do. It can upload the photos you take by WIFI DIRECTLY TO YOUR LAPTOP! What! I know it sounds too good to work well, but it does. You can pop the SDHC or memory stick card out and load the photos into your laptop if you choose, but you can wait until you get home, click two easy clicks and voila, the photos go directly into whatever folder on your laptop or computer you have set up. It does work and if you have a couple days of photos on your camera, have no fear - when the photos upload they are sorted into folders labeled with the date they were taken.

I just think this Sony WX80 Camera is truly amazing in every way. Oh did I mention that it quickly can change over to HD Video mode and that you can upload directly to Social Media right from the camera?

As if capturing a moment in time isn't a miracle enough, now it's even easier to capture everything and everyone you love and share it even easier than ever before. Read through our photo gallery below and I'll explain some of the great features with fun photo examples.

Memory Cards For Digital Camera Storage

The Sony WX80 Digital Camera allows you to use either a SDHC Memory Card or a Memory Stick. Not only will you want to have your memory card ready to go in your camera, but consider having at least a spare one with you also.

For everyone who is wondering which kind of cards are the best for you, maybe this will help some.

Class 10 rating on a digital memory card is what you really want if you are using a good HD digital camera and/or camcorder. The faster speed capability built into these cards really helps avoid any video lag and the larger megapixel capability means your photos will come out awesome too. For this very capable camera you want to be sure you are using SDHC or a Memory Pro Stick to get the best performance.

As far as how big a memory card should you get, today's digital technology really offers great stuff for the consumers. Even a 2 GB SDHC Flash Memory card will store hundreds of still photos at a really great resolution or 30 mins of HD video. Memory cards have really come down in price and are pretty affordable now so even a 16 GB or 32 GB card is pretty affordable, depending on your needs. Remember if you want to store photos and video on the same card for a while before you upload them, you may want to consider a nice size card.

Life is all about making memories, the Sony WX80 photo and video digital camera will help you record these memories to share for a lifetime. Have fun. Make memories. I do highly recommend this great camera. All photos were taken by me with this camera.

Sony DSC WX80 Digital Camera Review Summary

The Sony DSC WX80 digital camera is really a great camera, I recommend it highly and I'm definitely not a professional photographer but my experience with it's user friendly options and great photos has been outstanding. It is available in black and gray which is usually my go to, but this camera in white is a real knock out. Looks great, slim and easy to tuck into even a small purse and the lithium ion battery charges quickly and lasts longer than any other digital camera battery I have ever had. The WiFi built in option is great for me and the ability to pop the memory card out and share photos or upload a lot of photos quickly makes this a perfect solution for every photo opportunity.

I hope this review has helped you if you are looking for a digital camera or a great gift for yourself or someone you love. I recommend it highly and I think it is very affordable especially considering the great photos and video memories that will last you a lifetime!

Thanks for stopping by, I love when the community has comments too and if you have any experience with this camera, please share!

Flash Memory Cards at 32 GB may be overkill but they are a great buy and offer speed as well as a lot of storage.

      Gotta love that WiFi is built in - and those lithium ion batteries DO last a long time (we use them in portable medical equipment).
