  • Conclusion: The W290 is a fantastic buy: producing crisp, well-balanced and vibrant frames, all at an affordable cost. It struggles in low light and isn't the top contender for macro or sports but excels in landscape and portrait shooting, and for an every day point and shoot you'd struggle to find a camera that would deliver better results.

Sony Camera DSC-W290

GadgetSpeak

  • Summary: I do not get to see many Sony units as their agency in the past has not the most cooperative hence this unit being supplied by Jessops. This is a small neat unit but it also has a lot of recent features and certainly worth a look.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W290: tolle Weitwinkel-Kompaktkamera

CNET
14 August 2009
  • Summary: Auf dem Papier klingt die Sony Cybershot W290 verlockend: Für knapp 200 Euro erhalten Käufer ein Weitwinkelobjektiv mit fünffachem optischem Zoom, eine Auflösung von 12,1 Megapixeln, eine ganze Reihe von Automatik-Optionen, einen HD-Videomodus und ein 3 Zoll großes Display. Der Hersteller verpackt die ganze Technik auch noch in einem ansehnlichen Gehäuse, das in etwa so groß ist wie ein Kartenspiel. Wir haben die Kompaktkamera ausführlich getestet.
  • Pros: gute Verarbeitungsqualität, intuitive Bedienung, Weitwinkelobjektiv mit fünffachem Zoom, ausgezeichnetes Preisleistungsverhältnis
  • Cons: Zoom funktioniert während Videoaufnahme nicht, etwas unscharfe Fotos
