Excerpt: It’s getting hard to distinguish between the virtually identical ultra-compact cameras jostling for our attention. Sony’s latest has all the obligatory specs: absurdly high-resolution sensor, 5x zoom lens, optical stabilisation, 2.7in screen and Li-ion battery.
Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W380 is a simple to use camera that will return average results for those looking for a point and shoot compact. It doesn't try and complicate things or set itself above its station, except perhaps with the 14.1-megapixel sensor, a number that seems unnecessarily high for...
Pros: Simple to use, compact, Sweep Panorama works well
Cons: Build quality, image noise, poor quality HD video, no HDMI
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W380 is a doppelganger of last year's WX1 camera that we liked so much, with a few less features and cheaper price tag, but it's unfortunately ruined by the 14 megapixel sensor and the resulting noisy, smudgy images.
Conclusion: Das geringe Gewicht und die komfortorientierte Ausstattung lassen die W380 ale eine interessante Kamera für Einsteiger erscheinen. Allerdings trüben die weichen Fotos - aufgrund des forsch einschreitenden Rauschfilters - und die zu langsame Auslöseverzögerung diesen Eindruck nachhaltig.
