Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The DSC-WX7 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other cameras that came out more than two years ago also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other cameras which also support wi-Fi to this digital camera and we think the Sony DSC-QX30[plb_2444747_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

The Sony DSC-WX7 does not have a built-in flash. Most of the other cameras that came out more than two years ago also do not have a built-in flash.

We compared all the other cameras which also have a built-in flash to this camera and we think the Sony DSC-HX200V[plb_2082742_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Video
