Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
4 December 2008
  • Excerpt: The DSC-W80 has a newer interface and look compared to other W series cameras from Sony (it comes in attractive colors of the sleek metal body as well). Also, W80 uses Sony’s new Bionz image processor, which is much faster.

  • Conclusion: I haven't actually used a Sony Cyber-shot compact for about a year, and on previous experience I was expecting the W80 to sail through this review and emerge - even if not with flying colors - as an easy recommendation for anyone wanting a simple point and shoot compact that won't ruin the line of...
  • Pros: Good resolution, particularly in the middle of the frame, Nice design - very slim, all-metal body, HDTV output, Decent macro, Good image quality in good light; bright, sharp images with immediate 'consumer friendly' appeal, Very reliable exposure system in most shooting conditions, Face Detection...
  • Cons: Slow, unreliable focus in low light, Combined effects of noise and noise reduction at high ISO's and in low light produces poor results, Noise reduction effects visible even at low ISO settings, Fiddly controls and fancy fade effects which make menus feel unresponsive, Screen is low res, has low ...

  • Excerpt: The Cyber-shot DSC-W80 ($250) is a midrange model in Sony's W-series line of compact cameras. It has a number of step-up features from the lower-end models (the W35 and W55), including image stabilization, a faster image processor, face detection, and component video output.
  • Pros: Stylish, compact metal body, comes in four colors, Optical image stabilization, Low noise through ISO 400, Large 2.5" LCD display (but see issues below), Optical viewfinder (a rarity in this class), Snappy performance; amazing continuous shooting mode, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, Fac...
  • Cons: Images are soft, with fuzzy details, even at lower ISOs, Considerable corner blurriness, Clunky, confusing new menu system (and I'm being generous here), Redeye remains a problem (but it can be fixed in playback mode), Low resolution LCD, Weak flash, Needs manual controls, especially for white ba...

  • Summary: A solid compact camera that combines speedy operation with above average image quality. If you're making enlargements the over sharpening may become an issue, but otherwise this is a good choice if you're after an all purpose model.
  • Pros: Extremely fast, Low noise shots, Good colour reproduction
  • Cons: No manual white balance, Over sharpening issues, Sluggish menu and controls

  • Conclusion: I like the Sony DSC W80. With virtually no shutter delay you should always get your shot with this camera. In lowlight the camera performs well (shame about the red eye!) and is capable of taken a decent shot outside.
  • Pros: Low shutter lag - viewfinder - ease of use
  • Cons: Red eye

  • Conclusion: Firma Sony uvedla v únoru tohoto roku trojici kapesních automatů – W200, W90 a W80 – které se odlišují pouze v drobných detailech; tím nejvýznamnějším je rozlišení snímací soustavy.

Mentre le altre fotocamere si fermano dopo un centinaio di s...
