Sony Cybershot DSC-W200 Digital Camera Review
31 May 2008
Excerpt: Do you feel like needing huge prints? Heres the most compact 12 megapixels camera in the industry that features Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens, Super Steady Shot Image Stabilization and Face Detection Technology, as well as D-arrange Optimizer.
Conclusion: Sony CyberShot W200 underwater review : The Sony DSC-W200 is a compact camera that is a joy to use. Thanks to its small size you can easily carry it with you in the pocket of your trousers or jacket. This is particularly nice when travelling. The performance is excellent.
Conclusion: The DSC-W200 is a good, solidly-built little camera but it certainly has its flaws. On the plus side is 12MP resolution for poster-sized prints. On the down side, you’ll have to shoot in good light or with the flash to get the best results.
Summary: A fantastic camera with a lot to recommend it but a low-quality LCD screen and fairly standard zoom range make its price tag seem somewhat inflated. At a cheaper price it would certainly be a winner.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 12.1-Megapixel Pocket Camera; Taking A Fun Camera Seriously
1 December 2007
Excerpt: As a photo enthusiast becomes more serious about making pictures, acquiring a larger and larger set of tools (lenses and accessories) to accommodate every possible contingency and capability seems to be essential.
Summary: When Sony announced the 12.1 Megapixel Cyber-shot W200, it was hard not have a pre-conceived impression of what it would offer in practice. It’s probably fair to say most of us expected an otherwise great compact, let down by the overly ambitious resolution of its sensor.
Pros: Very high resolution images., Optical viewfinder., Manual control over exposure., Huge range of accessories.
Cons: Softness and fringing in corners., Pedestrian 35-105mm lens range., Screen looks relatively coarse at 115k pixels., Convoluted menu system and controls.
Excerpt: What does Sony love to deliver most – besides overblown speeches about giant enemy crabs? Products that jam multiple components into delightfully, mysteriously small packages. With the 5.1-ounce W200, Sony manages to fit a 12.1-megapixel-image sensor inside the case of a diminutive point and shoot...
Pros: Optical image stabilization, face detection techniques, and 9-point autofocus system generate handsome snapshots. Buttery smooth 3x (35 to 105-mm film equivalent) optical zoom. Fast shooting: 1.7 seconds from power-on to first shot and 0.6 second shutter lag with flash and focus.
Cons: Outrageous 0 price tag – we’ve found 7-megapixel cameras with similar performance and image quality at almost half the price. 2.5-inch LCD has a grainy quality and mediocre detail.
Cons: Requires far more light for low ISO shots than most competitors; exceptionally long flash-recycle time and disappointing shot-to-shot performance; image-processing artifacts; LCD has poor off-angle viewing; proprietary USB cable.
Excerpt: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W200 Digital Camera Review The Sony Cyber-shot W200 is a super slim camera with an incredible range of features and the latest technology, allowing you to take fantastic photographs wherever you are.
