Sony DSC-W Review

All output connections are provided on one multi-tentacled cable, with video, stereo audio and USB connections all available together. On that score, the Sony W did pretty well, and my picture-taking experience with it was quite good. Both the wide-angle and telephoto ends of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W’s zoom range produced soft corners when compared to the center of the frame. The Nikon Coolpix S is an affordable and easy-to-use point-and-shoot compact camera.

We offer a warranty of ink cartridges at least 14 months after delivery. Control space on the back panel is a little cramped, but the layout of the buttons and their slightly raised profiles made it easy to select what I wanted to do without miscues.

The Sony Cyber-shot W features in-camera retouching capabilities, with soft focus, fish eye effect, cross filter, partial color, retro, radiation, red-eye correction, trimming, unsharp masking and smile effects being on offer. Hue is also a little off for colors like yellow and cyan. Click on the screenshot above to see a movie of Charlotte the Wonder Dog catching her Frisbee.


Outdoors, the Sony W acquitted itself quite well also, delivering bright but natural-looking color and plenty of detail.

The Sony W’s mode dial offers a panoply of options, no less than 10 different settings. Not a show-stopper by any means, but a minor annoyance compared to some other cameras.

When it detects the smile, the camera will trigger the shutter. This stylish compact packs an 8x zoom lens, 16 megapixel sensor, 2. The Sony W’s lens covers a focal length range of mm equivalents, going a bit wider than the standard 35mm wide-angle available on many cameras.

Details are quite blurry at ISOand things progressively deteriorate from there. Not more so than most competing models, though, at least in our experience.

ISO shots can be printed as large as 8×10 inches, but are a little blotchy-looking at that size, really only suitable for wall display. At ISO8x10 inch prints surprisingly look a little cleaner than ISO ones, but the trade-off is that a good bit more subtle detail is lost to the canom processing. Like many cameras, the corners of the frame printe rather soft when shooting this close, but performance is good overall.

One of the W’s strong suits seems to be its ability to handle a wide range of lighting conditions in its fully automatic mode.

It only takes seconds to zoom the lens from one extreme to the other. The slight recess is a good design touch, as the camera is less likely to be turned on accidentally. I have to say that Sony’s menu system is one of the things I personally like least about their cameras.


I found the separate Home menu a little awkward. The Samsung WB30F is a new travel-zoom camera that won’t break the bank. Like the lenses on many digital cameras, the W’s isn’t a smooth zoom; it moves in steps, no matter how briefly you press the toggle control. Sony says it’s good for shots per charge, based on the CIPA standard for battery life.

What’s interesting is that the camera offers two “simple” modes, adding an “Easy” option to the normal Green Zone setting. While the camera does have a specific macro setting, its main impact is merely printeer speed focusing for close-up subjects.

The SteadyShot image stabilization worked quite well, making it much easier to get sharp images without flash than when shooting with the stabilization turned off. When tracking mouse movement, you usually need to know the actual position of the mouse pointer.

Sony claims a continuous mode of 1. Both Auto and Incandescent white balance settings left just a little too much warm cast for our tastes in this test, shot under household incandescent lighting. Standard outdoor and indoor shots both turned out quite well, with no 2w20 whatsoever on my part. A menu setting gives you options of off, shooting active whenever the shutter button is half-pressedor always-on.
