  • 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...
  • 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.

3 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Sony Cyber-shot W55 patří do nabídky jednoduchých kompaktů, které se cenově blíží hranici pěti tisíc.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Batteria di lunga durata; Obiettivo Carl Zeiss; Formato 16:9
  • Cons: No stabilizzatore di immagine
