Sony Cybershot DSC-W55 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
18 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The W55 is an ultra-compact, point-and-shoot camera with a 3X zoom lens, 2.5″ LCD display and the usual 3x optical zoom. Compared to the previous DSC-W50, it boots 1MB up, has nearly twice as much built-in memory and a little more battery power. Compared to DSC-W35 it has the same lens, same megapixels but a larger LCD.

  • Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 ($199) is an updated version of last year's popular DSC-W50 digital camera. That means that the W55 is an ultra-compact, point-and-shoot camera with a 3X zoom lens, 2.5" LCD display (there's an optical viewfinder too), VGA movie mode, and more.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, low noise levels through ISO 400, Stylish, compact metal body, comes in four colors, Low noise through ISO 400, Large 2.5" LCD display, Optical viewfinder (a rarity in this class), Robust performance, AF-assist lamp; accurate (but slow) low light focusing, Great battery life, Plenty of built-in memory, Support for conversion lenses, filters, and external flash, USB 2.0 High Speed protocol supported
  • Cons: Images can be "fuzzy" at times due to noise reduction, especially at higher ISOs, Redeye a problem, Needs more manual controls, especially for white balance and shutter speed (see photo tests to see why), Low resolution LCD, Unimpressive burst mode, Flimsy plastic door over memory card / battery compartment, No Mac image browser included, Full manual only on CD-ROM

[ REVIEW — SONY DSC W55 camera ]

DPexpert
7 July 2011
  • Summary: This is a good compact camera that we enjoyed using. Up to ISO 200 it produces fine images. It has selectable aspect ratios and it can take pictures in the right ratio and pixel dimension for widescreen high definition televisions, (16:9 and 1920×1080 pixels) but be warned, what is good for the telly is not necessarily good for printing. Even a high definition TV is a relatively low resolution device.
  • Pros: The macro performance of this camera is particularly fine. We used the camera for some close, detailed work where we would normally use a DSLR with micro lens and we were well satisfied with the results. Closest focussing distance is 2cm.
  • Cons: The printed manual is inadequate and the on-screen display is very difficult to use to set camera parameters. The full handbook is on a CD which we think is cheap skatery and is deterring owners from getting the best out of their camera. The menu system is so user-hostile that it is difficult to work out how to do something as simple as change the ISO setting.

Sony Cyber-shot W55 - hodně muziky za málo peněz v praxi

3 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Sony Cyber-shot W55 patří do nabídky jednoduchých kompaktů, které se cenově blíží hranici pěti tisíc. Nabízí ale výrazně lepší parametry než jeho stejně drazí kolegové před několika lety. Efektivní rozlišení 7 MPix, trojnásobný optický zoom, velký 2,5" displej a vysoká citlivost až ISO 1000. Na papíře vypadá všechno dobře, jak dopadl fotoaparát v našem testu?

  • Conclusion: La Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 è una fotocamera di elevata qualità, con un sensore di tipo Super HAD CCD, quindi migliore di quello montato in genere sulle altre compatte. Lo zoom non è molto elevato, solo 3x, ma l’obiettivo è Carl Zeiss. Dispone di molte funzioni, del formato 16:9 per i video, di una lunga durata della batteria, ma non di stabilizzatore delle immagini.
  • Pros: Batteria di lunga durata; Obiettivo Carl Zeiss; Formato 16:9
  • Cons: No stabilizzatore di immagine
