Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G3

PC Magazine
14 December 2009
  • Conclusion: The pricey Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G3 takes excellent pictures and represents a major step forward in the evolution of Wi-Fi-enabled cameras, but it suffers from poor battery life and slow wireless upload times.
  • Pros: Sharp images. Large, high-resolution LCD screen. Intuitive touch-screen interface. Smile Shutter feature can be useful. 4GB of built-in storage.
  • Cons: Expensive. Dismal battery life. Although well executed, wireless photo upload to online photo sites is painfully slow. Camera records only standard-definition video. Touch-screen buttons in Web browser are less responsive than in the rest of the UI. Menus don't take full advantage of high-resolution screen.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G3 Review

Digital Camera Review
2 October 2009
  • Summary: CONCLUSION The Sony DSC-G3 isn't flawless but with its built-in WiFi and browser, 4GB internal memory, good functionality as a portable digital photo album and 3.5 inch Touchscreen LCD, this slender camera certainly differentiates itself from every other consumer digicam on the market. The big question is whether or not it's worth the high price tag.
  • Pros: WiFi and built-in browser, 3.5 inch touchscreen, 4GB internal memory, Solid feature set including dynamic range optimization, advanced face detection, smile shutter, anti-blink; good performance, Good image quality (with reservations, see below)
  • Cons: WiFi/browser operation could be faster and easier, Image noise creeps in even at mid-range (200 and above) ISOs, Comparatively short battery life, Hefty price tag

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G3

16 January 2009
  • Summary: Though it's a decent camera, the Sony Cyber-shot G3's Wi-Fi implementation is a disappointment, and makes the camera overpriced relative to nonwireless models, including its better designed but otherwise similar sibling, the DSC-T700.
  • Pros: Surprisingly speedy; 4GB internal memory.
  • Cons: Wi-Fi is slow and difficult to use; touch screen is occasionally nonresponsive; poor battery life.

  • Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G3 is the first camera with its own web browser, Wi-Fi connectivity, and 4GB of on-board storage, but this innovative first-gen model has some kinks to work out.

Sony Cybershot DSC-G3

18 May 2009
  • Conclusion: La costosa Cyber-shot DSC-G3 de Sony saca fotos excelentes y representa un paso importante al frece en la evolución de las cámaras con funcionalidad Wi-Fi; pero padece de una duración pobre de la batería y de prolongados tiempos de carga inalámbrica.
  • Pros: Imágenes nítidas. Gran pantalla LCD de alta resolución. La característica Smile Shutter puede ser útil. 4 GB de almacenamiento integrado.
  • Cons: Cara. Pésima duración de la pila. Aunque bien lograda, la carga inalámbrica de las fotos a los sitios online es lentísima. La cámara graba sólo en video de definición estándar. Los botones de la pantalla táctil del navegador web responden menos que el resto de la interfaz de usuario. Los menús no aprovechan del todo la pantalla de alta resolución.

16 April 2009
  • Excerpt: 索尼DSC-G1在国内发布,引起了市场轰动。之所以称它为新概念,不仅因为那块3.5英寸92万像素的超大尺寸Xtra Fine液晶屏幕,更是由于它创新内置2GB空间,支持WiFi无线传输功能,打破同质化僵局,为娱乐型数码相机的发展开辟了一条新路。
