The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 has a number of step-up features from the former models with image stabilization, a faster image processor, face detection, and component video output. This new model is more colorful, has an attractive new display, good performance as well as good image quality. Apart from its standard features it includes 7.2MP CCD, 3X optical zoom lens, 2.5“ LCD display, and VGA movie mode. Once you start to use this camera there is no going back to other models. The home button activates in a secondary menu that separates media and camera settings from more commonly used settings such as white balance, ISO sensitivity, and exposure compensation. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 boots more media-friendly features than any other W-series camera, with high-definition slide shows with MP3 music support and in-camera image retouching. However as these new features are nice, the buttons are amazingly small and displayed around a much sensitive control pad. This is very awkward as it is very easy to press the wrong button when going through the menus. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 also comes with more useful features like optical image stabilization, ISO 3200 maximum sensitivity, and face-detecting autofocus and autoexposure. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 remains the best of the Cyber-shot W-series. Being the most expensive, it comes with the most features of any W-camera to date. Its amazing picture quality and fast speed make it a great choice for a small, reliable snapshot camera. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 features the new Bionz image processor enabling faster shots with only 1.2 seconds between pictures. The photos are stunningly great, with sharp details and accurate colors. This camera is perfect for anyone looking for a simple camera for daily use. The added benefits of aperture adjustments, high resolution, stabilization, etc; make this Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 more alluring.

  • Indoor pics grainy

    It seems that all of my indoor pictures are grainy and if the subject is moving (I have a 3 year old who doesn't know how to be still) then the pic is grainy AND blurry. Anything I can do about it?
