  • 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 ...

  • 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

  • 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

  • Excerpt: Sony Cybershot W80 è una fotocamera dotata di sensore CCD di tipo Super HAD delle dimensioni di 1/2.5". L'obiettivo Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar monta uno zoom ottico da 3x e uno zoom digitale da 6x che, in combinazione, consentono ingrandimenti fino a 14x.
  • Pros: Sony Cybershot W80 mostra la sua originalità ed il suo pregio più apprezzabile nella batteria STAMINA al litio N (NP-BG-1), che consente di effettuare, in condizioni di ripresa normali, 340 scatti immagine o 170 minuti di ripresa video. Mentre le altre fotocamere si fermano dopo un centinaio di s...
  • Cons: Sony Cybershot W80 non evidenzia particolari difetti.
