Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 Review

Digital Camera Review
23 May 2008
  • Excerpt: In the brace of new Cyber-shot W models that Sony unveiled earlier in the year, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 falls squarely in the middle in terms of both price and features. Given its "middle child" status, the W150 also arguably provides the most bang for your buck of any of the five new W cameras: you can get a bit more resolution by spending more, but in terms of zoom range and screen size, the W150's 5x Carl Zeiss lens and 2.7-inch LCD are top of the series.
  • Pros: Fast AF, no perceptible shutter lag, Higher ISOs clean and usable, Enough playback tools to keep you entertained for awhile, Truly impressive battery life
  • Cons: Red channel clipping a real problem, Auto white balance is disappointing indoors, Flash shots full of red eyes, Menus still complex, confusing, and laggy to page through

[REVIEW—SONY CYBERSHOT W150]

DPexpert
6 December 2008
  • Summary: We are impressed. The black model that we had for testing is handsome. It has a high quality feel and appearance. The inclusion of an optical viewfinder is a plus, even if it is small and restricted in the coverage of image area. It has the usual gimmicks of face detection and the so-called “smile shutter” which serve no real purpose. We have yet to try the connection from camera to high definition television, but we expect to do that before the camera is returned.
  • Pros: The picture quality is good, with fine resolution and colour rendition. At ISO200 noise reduction is well judged, although there is some blurring of fine detail. The pictures are as clean as any we have seen from an 8 megapixel camera.
  • Cons: There is no proper printed instruction manual, only a pamphlet that doesn’t even tell the user how to change the ISO setting or exposure compensation. If Ricoh, for example, can provide a 210 page printed manual then Sony should do no less. And we do not care for Sony’s Memory Sticks — they are too expensive and fiddly to read in a PC card reader.

  • Summary: Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-W150 is a fairly decent compact cameras with a few niggling issues. Aside from some purple fringing it captures good shots. The interface and shot taking can be extremely slow at times, which is frustrating.
  • Pros: Sharp pictures, 5x optical zoom with stabilisation, smile shutter is kind of nifty
  • Cons: Slow interface, sluggish shot-to-shot time, purple fringing and haloing issues
