Showing 1-7 of 7


7 July 2011
  • Summary: Compact cameras, unlike DSLRs, are unforgiving. If all the conditions are not perfect – light, focus, exposure, contrast – then the pictures will be barely acceptable. But when the conditions are right the little Sony does a good job. We let a small child try it.
  • Pros: The HDTV display is particularly fine, although if this setting is chosen in-camera it does limit printing options. Images are generally sharp, well exposed and with reasonable colour accuracy, if somewhat oversaturated. We found that if the pictures were a little underexposed image noise is noti...
  • Cons: We have had a soft spot for the Sony W cameras in the past because they had optical viewfinders. Only Sony and Canon compacts had this feature and now Sony has gone the way of the herd. This is a retrograde step. No matter what they say there are situations where the LCD is impossible to use as a...

  • Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 is an impressive compact camera that is especially suited to beginners. It takes good photos, comes with an enlarged LCD and has one of the best user interfaces we've seen. All in all, a solid effort.

Sony CyberShot DSC-W230 - Test Kompakt-Digitalkamera 12 Megapixel

20 May 2009
  • Summary: Die Sony DSC-W230 besitzt mit ihrem Brennweitenbereich ab 30 Millimetern zwar kein "klassisches" Weitwinkelobjektiv. Dennoch lassen sich mit der Kamera Landschaftsaufnahmen, Architekturfotos und andere Bilder, wo es auf einen weiten Bildausschnitt ankommt, gut realisieren.

  • Conclusion: Lisäksi laukaisin on kankea, eikä sen puolivälin asentoa tahdo löytyä. Takalevyssä oleva zoom-kytkin lisää kameran putoamisriskiä. Peruskäytössä Sonyssa on sopivan vähän asetuksia. Tärkeimmät kuvaustilat ovat suoraan ohjauskiekossa. Jos val ...
  • Pros: Iso näyttö, Terävä videokuva, Akkukesto
  • Cons: Ahdas kameraote, Kohina automaattiasetuksilla
