Sony Cyber-Shot W50

Digital Photography Interface
17 March 2006
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot W50 takes most of the W5's features and puts them into a smaller package. The W50 is about 10% smaller than the W5 yet features a 6 megapixel CCD, 3x zoom lens with the same specifications, excellent battery life and can still support conversion lenses!

  • Cons: LCD visibility and resolution not excellent, Zoom lever is too easy to bump, No manual controls, Slow and limited continuous shooting, Performance could be faster and better, Redeye, Memory Sticks can be costly

Exkluzív: Sony DSC-W50

13 April 2007
  • Summary: A tavaly útjára indított DSC-W sorozat ma két új taggal bővült. A DSC-W30 és DSC-W50 szinte csak LCD-jük méretében tér el egymástól. A 6 Mpixeles új ultrakompakt fényképezőgép - egy nem végleges változata - a múlt hétvégén nálunk járt, így tapasztalatainkról ezúton számolunk be...

Expert Review

26 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Venti anni fa era una missione quasi impossibile trovare autentici appassionati della fotografia, un "hobby" troppo complicato, caro, di risultati poco riconoscenti… insomma, soltanto alla portata di alcuni pochi privilegiati.
  • Pros: buona qualità di immagine, design affascinante, minime aberrazioni cromatiche e geometriche, video VGA di notevole qualità…
  • Cons: rumore elettronico molto visibile nelle sensibilità più alte, limitato diaframma in tele, mirino ottico troppo piccolo
