-Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2013. We're taking a look at a new tiny camera from Sony. This is the CybertShot WX80. So, this is pretty standard stuff as far as digital compact cameras go. There's a 16.2 megapixel sensor inside this little device and an 8x optical zoom. There's a bit more zoom you can squeeze out, but it's digital, so you will lose picture quality. It has 1080p video recording, but a really feature about this camera is that it's got Wi-Fi sharing. Now, this is the first time Sony has put its Wi-Fi sharing technology in a camera this small and it's a particularly good idea on their behalf because if you're thinking of buying a small camera like this, you might be wondering why don't I just use my smartphone. So, the idea is that you take a picture with this, the camera creates a Wi-Fi hotspot, you connect it to your phone using an output that's available for iOS and android, and then you can transfer your pictures across. It sounds like a good idea and a good way of easily transferring your photos. Unfortunately, there's no Windows phone app on the horizon. So, if you're using a phone running Microsoft's operating system, you're out of luck for now. It's coming out very soon in January and it's gonna cost $199, which isn't too bad for a camera this tiny. Wait for the full review though where we'll be testing image quality and all the other features. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET CES 2013 and this is Sony CyberShot WX80.
