Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W220 – cheaper sibling of W290

etechreviews.net
28 January 2010
  • Excerpt: This camera is a trimmed down version of the more expensive W290 which was also high on features. The latter camera had a wider longer lens, larger screen, HD movie capture mode and few other goodies put in. If you are a light photographer we would recommend you to go for this one rather than the W290 because we think it is worth sacrificing the features for the money that you save. For its price, the W220 gives good performance and photo quality.

Digicam Review
26 July 2009
  • Summary: : The Sony Cybershot W220 is a good camera overall - it has a good range of features and specifications that should suit most people. As a point and shoot it has a number of features that make it easier to use, such as a number of scene modes, and even an "EASY" mode. The camera features a slightly wide angle 4x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation - this means shots are more likely to come out blur free.
  • Pros: Black is back, 4x optical zoom lens, Good colour, Good macro mode, Good 2.7" screen that works in bright sunlight, Dynamic Range Optimisation, Optical image stabilisation, Good battery life (promises 370 shots), Exposure bracketing, AF Assist Light
  • Cons: Noise in images even in bright sunny photos! (a symptom of DR range expansion being switched on?), Purple fringing and chromatic abberations, Lots of red-eye in flash photos, Uses (more expensive) Sony Memory Sticks, Small zoom and shutter release, difficult to feel half-press focusing point, Feels plasticy and cheap compared to Panasonic FS7, Lacks manual white balance, HD video would be nice, No panoramic mode

  • Conclusion: Cyber-shot DSC-W220 jest jedną z najprostszych ale też i najtańszych konstrukcji oferowanych przez Sony. Aparat został wyposażony w matrycę CCD o rozdzielczości 12 milionów pikseli i czterokrotny zoom optyczny.
  • Pros: Dobre możliwości w porównaniu do ceny, Optyczna stabilizacja obrazu, Niewielki i lekki
  • Cons: Słaba jakość zdjęć, Brak ręcznego balansu bieli
