  • Conclusion: In a market where the trend is towards ever-smaller compact cameras Sony has, in the W series of cameras, provided an alternative for those who prefer something a little more substantial, and something a little more traditionally-styled.
  • Pros: Good clean results with excellent color and resolution, Very well built, Very low noise for a camera in this class, Fast focus, generally responsive operation, Easy to use and good handling, Good movie mode (MPEG), Excellent battery life (with NiMH), AF illuminator, Big, bright screen with auto g...
  • Cons: No aperture or shutter priority mode, Some highlight clipping in bright scenes, Minimum ISO 100 (50 would be nice), Results a bit soft and slightly over-sharpened, No manual/custom white balance mode, Flash recycle slow unless batteries very fresh, red-eye mode adds long delay, Small amount of ch...

  • Excerpt: In early 2005 Sony updated their popular Cyber-shot DSC-W1 model with two new ones: the DSC-W5 ($350) and the DSC-W7 ($450). The W5 is a 5 Megapixel camera like its predecessor, while the W7 has a 7.2 Megapixel CCD. I'll be covering the W7 in this review.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (though see issues below), Fairly compact metal body, Huge 2.5" LCD is usable in bright outdoor light and in low light too, Robust performance, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, Excellent movie mode, Support for conversion lenses and filters, Great battery life; rec...
  • Cons: Images a bit soft; some corner blurriness, Redeye, Disappointing burst mode, 32MB of built-in memory is way too little; Memory Sticks cost more than other card formats, Except for the tutorial, bundled software is lousy, Can't swap memory cards while camera is on a tripod
