Disappointed.

  • Summary: I wanted a slim and light camera so I bought this. Only problem is that the pictures are not good. worse picture quality than my 5 megapixel samsung phone camera. the pictures cannot stand up to my old pentax optio m20 and my ultra cheapo nikon s30 both cameras lack image stabilization and have smaller sensors and lower pixe count yet they consistently take better pictures than this sony this sony boasts a carl zeiss lens but at the wide end, the periphery is badly...

very disappointed

  • Summary: It is very unusual for me to write a negative rating for an item but this camera is like a toy. I am very disappointed and may send it back. Using it makes one think you are taking photos with a kids camera.

Serious let-down from DSC-W690

Lester W. Miller "TBear", Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: My first Amazon review! I have owned three Sony compact digitals in a row, weirdly, each of first two were stolen. The build got worse by model. I forget the first, but second was W690. Really appreciated the glowing gold light it sends out for indoor evening shots to focus and maybe set flash intensity. But this one has too much lag time until shutter goes, and I use it at a very low MP setting (16.1 MP is nuts in a basic snapshot).

User Review

  • Summary: I've only had the camera for about 2 weeks but I used it a good bit. First of the pros: the camera is nice and tiny, it will fit in your pocket with no problem. It seems to take very nice pictures about 95% of the time. The "scene" presets, while few in number, do a pretty good job for novice camera users who don't want to figure out the proper exposure etc. The cons: The shutter speed can be really slow!

Barely better than a modern cameraphone

Shane O. Laake "camera nerd", Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted to like this camera, as I can always use a good camera handy (my smartphone has a crap camera). Sadly I'm not too enamored with this. Its small, but again next to a camera in gadgets many of us already carry, it's got to add value. The value here is negligible. I like the sweep panoramas, but that's coming to more phones. The zoom is nice, and honestly a few years ago an 8x zoom on a camera this size would be breathtaking.

I think my iPhone takes a better picture

Karen in Mommyland, Amazon

  • Summary: I should start off by telling you that I really don't like point and shoot cameras. I almost never get decent results from them. I've spent the past six years shooting only with a Canon DSLR ( Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens ) or my cell phone.

Too many compromises.

Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: The DSC-W730 contains a 16.1 megapixel sensor in the 1/2.3" format (about 28 square millimeters, smaller than a fingernail). The obvious drawback here is noise. The more pixels you cram into a small area, the more digital noise that will be evident in the resulting file. On its own, that's a reduction in quality that negates the need for such a dense sensor; who cares about the extra megapixels if you're not getting any more actual information, just noise?
