Excerpt: Sony's DSC-W170 Cyber-shot features a 10.1 MP digital resolution for still images. To my delight the movie mode is darn good and even though it doesn't have a Sports setting it does do a good job taking video of soccer games, basketball games and a variety of actions movies. The DSC-W170 has a 5x zoom and the expected Carl Zeiss lens. The zoom doesn't work in movie mode.
Excerpt: I had to do a double take when I unboxed our Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 review unit. "Wait. Didn't I just review this camera?"
