  • Excerpt: (1 items) In the realm of $200 cameras, Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-W230 distinguishes itself from the pack with a beautiful 3-inch LCD screen, a wide-angle lens, great in-camera features, and easy-as-pie access to scene modes. The 12-megapixel DSC-W230 is well-constructed and looks sharp, too. It’s available in four colors: blue, black, red, and silver. Its 4X optical-zoom Carl Zeiss lens offers a 30mm film equivalent on the wide-angle end, with 120mm on the telephoto end.
  • Pros: Fun UI and slideshow features, Excellent 3-inch LCD
  • Cons: Image stabilization not always effective

  • Summary: At a reasonably low price for budget shoppers, the W230 has quite a few nice features. Unfortunately, the camera has a lens that is not too sturdy, below par image quality and a battery life that will disappoint.
  • Pros: Easy mode is fuss free, Flash has a good range, Exposure bracketing
  • Cons: Buttons are too small, Battery life, Images displayed a fair amount of noise and colour artefacts, Flimsy lens, Smile shutter was too slow to respond and fussy

  • Excerpt: Sony vient renouveler sa gamme W avec les nouveaux modèles, Sony W290, W270 et W230 qui sont autant de variantes autour de caractéristiques.

  • Pros: Compacité / look, Mode vidéo />
  • Cons: Zoom trop limité, Ecran peu défini
