Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290 Review

26 April 2013
  • Summary: With all of the features being added to new beginner-level digital cameras, it sometimes can be easy to lose track of the most important feature -- image quality. After all, your digital camera can have all of the coolest features, but if it can't create a sharp, high-quality image, the extra features are basically worthless. My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290 review shows that Sony did not forget that important feature: The DSC-W290 creates outstanding images.
  • Pros: Image quality is very good, Very easy to use with few buttons, Large LCD is easy to see in bright sunlight, Continuous-shot performance is very good, Multiple body colors are available
  • Cons: Shutter lag can be a minor problem, especially in low light, Some focus problems on close-up subjects, Design is pretty basic, MSRP could be a little lower - shop around
