Reliable little camera

  • Summary: Bought this camera years and years ago and it's still working. Takes nice point and shoot pictures, but does eat up batteries and storage space when taking movies. Decent resolution on images, audio not so great for the movies.

  • Excerpt: This camera takes better pictures than my Sony DSC-T1, and the low-light flash performance of the DSC-W5 is MUCH better than the DSC-T1. Problems: I bought the DSC-W5 about five months ago, and today had a problem with the lens not retracting when powering down.

  • Excerpt: This was my second of three Sony DSC cameras. It is also the only one I didn't love. First came the S50 which I still use for astrophotography with my telescope. I was also very happy with the color rendition of the S50 (I am an old Kodachrome 64 fan).

  • Excerpt: Hi all, I've just a question because I know nothing about camera's at all: I have this camera from a friend. Is this camera good enough to make pictures from a big distance? I'm going to Tanzania and I'm not sure the zoom (3x) is sufficent for snapping shots of animals overthere.

Will Not Power On - Been Repaired Twice

Michael Lukaszewski, Amazon
4 January 2006
  • Summary: Back in March, I bought this $400ish Sony digital camera. 6 weeks into it, it would not power on. I discovered this as my wife was in the hospital giving birth to our second child. Not a good time for a camera to break.

Problems shooting in lowlight

  • Summary: Perfect except sometimes I run into problems taking photos at night. While it can take beautiful atmospheric shots in the dark(see birthday candle mode) it looks like this setting will only work when there is a concentrated point of bright light in an absolutely dark room, but for taking photos...

Good pictures, terrible software

  • Summary: I've just purchased a Sony DSC-W5 and taken it out for it's first test run. The pictures I got were of a very high standard and it coped well in a range of conditions. However, when I got the camera back to my PC and tried to download the pictures I was left disappointed.
