Sony Cybershot DSC-W100 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
1 September 2006
  • Excerpt: The focal range of the W100 ‘s lens (F2.8-5.2, 3X optical zoom Carl Zeiss lens) is 7.9 – 23.7 mm, which is equivalent to 38 – 114 mm. This 8.1 Megapixel Camera is very effective at ISO 400 (reaches 1.000 lines/image length in the centre of the image and low noise). But ISO for this camera goes up to 1250 . While it uses Memory Stick Duo cards , also has a 64Mb build-in memory.

  • Excerpt: The Cyber-shot DSC-W100 ($350) is the top-end camera in Sony's 2006 W-series lineup. While it shares a similar design and lens with the other models, the W100 has the most resolution, courtesy of its 8.1 Megapixel CCD.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, Surprisingly low noise levels through ISO 400, Compact, stylish body comes in silver and black, Snappy performance (though see issues below), Large 2.5" LCD display (though resolution could be better), AF-assist lamp (but see issue below), Above average battery life, Nice movie mode, Tons of built-in memory, Support for USB 2.0 High Speed protocol
  • Cons: Not enough new features to separate it from the other W-series cameras; doesn't support conversion lenses, underwater case, or camera dock like the W30/W50/W70, Redeye, Color saturation could be higher, Needs more manual controls; only two apertures can be chosen at any time, Focusing can be slow at telephoto end of lens or in low light, Unimpressive continuous shooting mode, No Mac software included

Sony Cyber-Shot W100

Digital Photography Interface
23 April 2006
  • Conclusion: Flagship of the W-series, the Sony Cyber-shot W100 packs 8 megapixels on larger sized CCD, 3x optical zoom, 2.5 inch LCD, ISO 1250 and a manual mode. And it costs about $300 only. The W100 has above average battery life - that's 360 shots. So there appears to be not much of a requirement to get an extra battery pack. There's also plenty of built-in memory; that's a whole 64 MB.
  • Pros: Large 2.5 inch LCD, Above average battery life, Shutter and aperture control (though limited), Good flash control (especially with closeups), Great high ISO performance (Even ISO 1250 shots are acceptable), Unlimited VGA 30 FPS movie mode, Very good image quality, Affordable
  • Cons: LCD visibility and resolution not excellent, Not compatible with conversion lenses (Even the W30 which is priced 33% less is compatible with them), No shutter/aperture priority; manual mode is limited, Slow and limited continuous shooting, So-so 6 cm macro mode, Noisy moving lens and it retracts too quickly in playback, Performance could be faster and better, Redeye, Movie mode is basic and too bare: no zoom, focus when recording

  • Summary: The DSC-W100 takes brilliant pictures and offers decent functionality. It is only really let down by a weak burst mode.
  • Pros: Sharp colourful pictures, Great ISO performance even a ISO 1250
  • Cons: Poor burst mode, Higher than normal chromatic aberration

  • Conclusion: Deze Cyber-shot DSC W100 is de zwaarste W-camera en ook geen vormgevelijk hoogstandje. Het is een metalen fotodoos die uitstekend gedetailleerde en scherpe, 8 megapixel foto�s maakt, met fraaie helderheid en contrast. Sony biedt goede prijs/kwaliteit met deze camera, want zijn internetwinkelprijs ligt met ruim 250 euro op een redelijk niveau.
  • Pros: scherpte, beeldkwaliteit, prijs, Precision Zoom
  • Cons: ruizig, vormgeving

  • Summary: Si pensabas que los unicos que le ofrecían verdadera resistencia al ejercito romano era el pueblo galo de Asterix y Obelix, va siendo hora de que desempolves los libros de historia, pero si no, hay una manera muy interesante de recorrer la historia a través de este frenético juego. Encarnado a un general espartano, realizarás una valiente defensa de tu pueblo frente a la invasión romana, eso sí con la ayuda de algunos dioses, con lo que el juego tomará un singular matiz...

  • Excerpt: DSC-W100 to kolejny model aparatu cyfrowego marki Sony , który trafił do nas pod lupę. W przeciwieństwie do wcześniej testowanego T9, W100 jest aparatem sporo większym - jest to klasyczny kompakt. Jednego nie można odmówić sprzętowi firmowanego przez Sony – styliści zawsze stają na wysokości zadania. Jednak dla fotoamatorów nie wygląd aparatu jest najważniejszy, zdecydowanie ważniejsza jest jakość zdjęć oraz możliwości oferowane przez sprzęt.
