The Cyber-shot DSC-W560's Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for lifelike images. The 14.1 megapixel sensor of this camera captures images with detail and contrast in up to 13x19" prints. The Cyber-shot DSC-W560's 4x optical zoom lens brings distant subjects closer. This lens is 25mm equivalent wide-angle, which allows for group shots in tight spots. The iAuto mode of the Cyber-shot DSC-W560 recognizes scenes, lighting conditions and faces, and adjusts settings accordingly.
