Monster In My Pocket!
14 January 2010
Summary: Monster in my Pocket! This is not a brochure, nor a technical manual gushing the wonders of Sony's DSC W130 Super Steady Shot camera. (Wow, what a title!) No, these are just some personal opinions and impressions of a fun little camera. Many (or not so many) years ago I picked up an old Kodak 2MP digital camera. It was my first one. The photos were often blurred, colors were crappy and you could not blow up the photo much larger than a 3X5 index card. Horrible.
Summary: I accidentally dropped the camera into a large mud puddle while riding an elephant in SE Asia. Incredibly, after about 5 days of letting it dry and very gently cleaning the exterior with a Q-tip (as I was backpacking I didn't have the tools to actually open the camera) it still worked great. There is a small amount of dirt stuck in the LCD viewing screen but that is nothing considering it was dropped about 12ft. and submerged in jungle muck for about 15 seconds.
Summary: Sony fans will not be disappointed in this one. It has a great video capability and takes great pictures. The only problem is that this camera is smaller than the other Sonys and sometimes the buttons are a little awkward if you have large hands. I preferred the W-100 as it was just a tad larger.If you are looking for the smallest possible, this is the one.
Summary: I was given this camera for a Xmas gift. I love the ease of use and the compact size. Easy to use, and the battery life is long. Also, a really nice feature is that it comes with a rechargeble unit so I don't ever have to buy new batteries. I love the PINK color!A couple drawbacks was it did not come with a carrying case or a memory disk. For the price and all the features it has, this was surprising.Overall, I highly recommend this camera.
Summary: The smile detection feature is what sealed the deal. Its a great camera. The only warning is it holds 4 pictures without a memory card. I DID find an 8G memory stick duo for like $22 online so that should make it hold about 2k pics.
I didn't find the ISO pics to be too blurry... but I'm not a professional photog, just a mom :)
Anyhow, great camera, great pics. I recommend it based on the value.

Summary: This is a lovely little camera, we@ve used it no end whilst on hols and round and about. Only issue I have is with the memory card slot which sometimes says cannot read card. We've lost a few pics too as the files write a little faulty. Other than that it's great.
Excerpt: The camera is slim enough according to me, first see this camera the same time another friend traveling in Kuta beach, Bali beginning the new year yesterday. My friends really like it happened to a collection of digital cameras, there are about 10 at his home just over a collection of cameras he owned, and the time in Bali he had brought up the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W130, when I hold this camera, very simple, lightweight, and dimasukkin bag / pocket-fitting too.
Summary: Good points: Has a good picture Takes pictures excellently easy to use (got it out of the box and got everything straight away) Good specs Little viewfinder (so if you're like me and doesnt like looking at the screen for the picture) Excellent Zoom Good contents with box Alot of add-ons Bad points: CANNOT ZOOM WHILE SHOOTING VIDEO (Worse point) Looks ugly from the back So the conclusion is if you want a camera to take videos, this isnt for you, but for taking pictures,...
