The Sony DSC-W200 is an attractive small 12.1 megapixel cyber-shot. It is the predecessor of the Sony DSC-W100 from 2006. Its features are all amazements, considering its small form yet it manages to input attractive features that have so far blown the mind of its users. Features included are an optical image-stabilizer with a 3X optical zoom, a 2.5 inch LCD monitor and all together with its 12.1 megapixel CCD into the camera. Also included are the steady shot image stabilization, face detection system, 640x480 “VX” fine movie mode. From the outside, even thought it’s a small package, its outer body is as durable as an all metal body. Unchanged features are the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens, Steady Shot image stabilization, Face Detection system, 2.5-inch LCD and 640x480 “VX” Fine movie mode. Upgraded are the 12-megapixels and the ISO range which has been broadened up. Users seem to enjoy its manual exposure mode which has helped in taking good and perfect shots. Though many loyal fans of Sony have appreciated this feature, some users still find fault in it. The notable ones that ticked photographers off are its low ISO shots; it requires more light, its flash-recycle are known to be exceptionally long, its shot-shot performance is disappointing, its image-processing artifacts, its LCD has poor off-angle viewing and the proprietary USB cable. Users noted that the lackluster focusing ability is a let-down too. The fact that there are too many features on its menu somehow confuse many of its users specially those who don’t know how to use a camera and are just learning too. Some find its 12-megapixel sensor a waste. The pixels are considered to be still small. Despite all that, the Sony DSC-W200 is still considered a really nice point and shoot camera to its ardent fans.
