Image quality is very good in terms of sharpness, colour reproduction
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is a simple picture taking machine. We mentioned this earlier and we still hold strong to the belief. The lack of quirky (gimmicky?) picture effects and Instagram style filters show that Sony think much more of this camera than something to snare a trendy market. This is a camera for keen amateurs who want a slim, good looking compact with great features where it counts. Except the tripod bush.
Up to 10 fps continuous shooting
The Sony Cybershot DSC-WX300 is an extremely small compact, particularly when you consider it packs a 20x optical zoom lens and Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi makes it easy to share images with smartphones and tablets, as well as using them as a remote control. On the downside, image quality isn't the best, images aren't as packed with detail as you'd hope and there is some purple fringing and chromatic aberration.
Good overall performance, Fast shooting, Crisp screen
Overall, this 18.2 MP camera has a very easy to use interface for anyone who has no background in photography. There are several nifty features crammed into this camera - far too many to state in this concluding paragraph. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is available for an MRP of Rs.19,990, while it is available for a little less if you search online. If the Wi-Fi feature doesn't interest you, you can save Rs 1000 and get the Nikon COOLPIX S9500 instead.
Incredibly compact design
The Sony Cyber-shot WX300 earns its status as a premium compact with a sleek, well-made body that's incredibly compact given the camera's 20x zoom lens. It'll no doubt appeal to style-conscious users looking for a camera that's easy to use and which generally does a good job, even if there's still room for improvement when it comes to picture quality.
A small camera that's easy to use but functionally limited
Camera worked great till it came in contact with water, I posted a couple of the pics from the pool. The camera is very function friendly, the instructions are straightforward, easy to operate, takes great pictures as well as being small and compact - fits even in child's small shorts' pocket.
Simple yet stylish
Whilst the TF1 may enable you to take pictures in shooting scenarios you might not otherwise attempt - and this is the true value of the camera above all else, we naturally have to give a verdict based as much on image quality as handling. And whilst the camera is as easy to use as one would expect and features such as picture effects and sweep panoramas are a nice value added touch, stills image quality is, unfortunately, commensurate with a budget snapshot camera, being softer than we...
Subtle design, Speedy autofocusing, Easy to use
Sony's TF1 is a capable action camera, and while it may not be as tough as some, it's at least styled to look good in any environment.
Considering you're getting a toughened camera with reasonable specs for modest money, the Sony TF1 is undoubtedly good value, even if it is a bit short on features and can only muster mediocre image quality.
Intelligent Auto mode
The Sony Cybershot DSC-TF1 is available at a decent price for a waterproof camera but unfortunately image quality is poor. If you're looking for a waterproof camera and you only share images on the web, then you might be quite happy with what the images produced, particularly as colour reproduction is decent. Overall, we suggest you look around at the alternative waterproof cameras on the market.
Rugged build quality, handy tracking focus mode
The Cyber-shot DSC-TF1 fits in nicely in the budget category of Sony's tough shooters, without compromising on looks and usability. Although the TF1 suffers from slow shooting performance, the camera has a good feature set along with a user-friendly user interface which should appeal to shutterbugs on a budget.
Good budget Superzoom
All in all, the Sony DSC-H200 is a great low cost camera for taking outdoor pictures, but not so good for taking indoor pictures. With it's lack of some basic features, it is definitely aimed at the budget minded photographer who is going to mainly just "point and shoot". There is a manual mode too for those that choose to use it though.
Affordable, if rather unexciting, super-zoom camera
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H200's biggest selling-point is undoubtedly its price-tag - £179 / $249 for a 26x zoom from a big-name manufacturer is good value, despite the camera's other short-comings. If you can't afford to splash out a lot more on an advanced model, then the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H200 does at least offer a long zoom in a well-built and simple-to-use body.
Wide-angle lens, Good macro performance
Seemingly any advantage of using a 20 megapixel CCD sensor has been obliterated by the amount of noise shown in all images. In fact, it's difficult to see any additional detail in images from this camera than a good 16 megapixel camera, and in fact, a 12 megapixel mirrorless camera can shoot a similarly detailed shot, but with much less noise.
Excellent color accuracy
We can't call the Sony TX20 a plainly bad camera. We scored some fairly attractive shots, particularly when taking advantage of the fast burst mode. Plus, the idea of a moderately rugged camera inside a chic body is a lead that other manufacturers should follow. Yet, what else can we really say about a camera that makes no improvement on its predecessor? The only reason to buy a TX20 is because the TX10 is no longer widely available.
Increased focusing speed and mode flexibility
The Sony DSC-TX20 is a largely iterative update to last year's TX-10 model. Waterproofing hasn't improved, and neither has the sensor's specs, but apparently increased focusing speed and mode flexibility make it the better bet. Treading water? Perhaps, but then that's what this camera is all about.
Good image quality and colour
You can tell that the Sony Cyber-shot TX20 has put an emphasis on design and style, rather than ruggedness, as the camera has a stylish sliding front cover (that also makes it slower to dry after being wet), and a stylish wide-aspect touch screen rather than chunky buttons. As the camera is rated to depths of 5 meters, and shockproof from 1.5 meters we would say that this is a camera for someone who wants an ultra compact, stylish camera, with the occassional water adventure.
16-megapixel backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor
Overall, we think that the TX20's ultracompact build coupled with its unique dual-color design may be appealing to young and trendy shutterbugs. Those in the market for a compact that can handle more than a little the usual knocks and bumps could find the TX20 as a worthy candidate, too.
Good video quality, Decent image quality
The TX20 is a tough camera that doesn't look like one. Casual shooters and anyone wanting to bring a touch of style to the seaside will be pleased with its images. Pixel peepers and those wanting to make serious enlargements from its prints will probably want to look elsewhere.
We like the TX20, but can't help feeling a bit disappointed that this is not the successor we would have expected, given how well its predecessor, the TX10, performed.
Perfect sized pocket digicam, stylish
The major reason that cell phones are competing so effectively with P&S digicams is because people always have their cell phones with them, and a camera that's on hand always beats the camera you left at home. That's a powerful argument for cell phone cameras, but the tiny TX66 will totally blow away any currently available smartphone when it comes to image quality - and it is noticeably less than half the size of the newest Apple and Samsung smartphones, so it is easily small enough to...
Stylish and sleek design
The Cyber-shot TX66 lives up to Sony's reputation creating stylish and highly portable compact cameras. It comes with a good feature set and achieves good images with reliable programmed settings. We think that the new camera would make a worthy purchase for trendy shutterbugs and smartphone camera users looking for a step-up in image quality.
Good quality lens with optical image stabilization
Sony's Cyber-shot H70 is a pretty solid long-zoom compact. It has a modest feature set with only a handful of Scene modes, and a Manual Mode for some photographic experimentation, and a few "Intelligent" modes to do the thinking for you. The 10x, G-series wide-angle zoom performs well and gives the Sony H70 a nice optical punch.
A Great Portable Camera
Overall I am very happy with my purchase. If you want a point and shoot that is easy out of the box, there are better suited cameras out there. If you want a camera that's a few steps up from a basic point and shoot, this one is great if you are willing to take the time to learn how to use it. Once you do, changing the settings is fast and easy.
Sweep Panorama technology is easy to use and captures great images
Sony's Cyber-Shot DSC-H70 is a powerful, yet portable 16-megapixel camera. With impressive features, and ease of use, the H70 is sure to please. It did have some downfalls in the image quality department, so be sure to look at several models before making your final purchase.
Image quality is very good
Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-H70 has some very strong features for a camera in its price range, and its image quality is very good. In fact, for a sub-$200 camera with a small built-in flash, the H70's image results in low light are surprisingly good, some of the best I've seen in a camera in this price range. The H70 has some issues with response times, as its autofocus can be a bit slow, in both low light and in outdoor lighting, which means you may miss a few spontaneous photos.
Outdoor wide angle shot
There is a lot to like about the Sony Cybershot DSC H70. It is a clear step up in many ways from a more basic digital camera. Picture quality impresses as does the build quality of the camera and range of features. If there is a problem it is the fact the Cybershot DSC H70 sits in a crowded part of the market where there is not a great deal of difference in quality between a lot of cameras.
I picked this camera mainly because of its physical design, as well as the specs (large display, SD compatibility, HD video recording, and good auto-mode). I knew the camera has hardware limitations (Comes with all point-and-shoot. I'm spoiled by the DSLR image-quality), but I don't intend to carry a large camera (like DSLR) to parties or clubs. I want something that fits in my pocket.
I wanted to love this camera, I really really did. I wanted to like it as much as my TX1 which unfortunately fell off the hood of my truck (and survived the fall at medium speed, except for the optics--and survived in the rain for 36 hours no less). But there are several things which left me constantly frustrated using this camera during a once-in-a-lifetime trip this weekend.
Best of breed
Bottom line on this new TX100v for "point-n-shooters" is that this is by far the "best of the breed." Shooting in auto mode for both pics and videos is simple and produces great results regardless of lighting or sceanic conditions--no need to fool with the settings...this thing is fully automated and works perfectly nearly every time.
The DSC-TX7 also offers Sony's Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, useful for combatting blur caused by camera shake without adversely affecting image quality.
With the Cyber-shot TX7, Sony has delivered an incredibly stylish, finely designed sub-compact camera that's a pleasure to shoot with. One of the best and most responsive touchscreens ever released and practical uses of cool technology, such as iSweep Panorama, make the Sony TX7 equally appealing for function and form. Yes, it's pricey and its sensor doesn't offer as many megapixels as others on the market, but a few low light features make up for that, especially Handheld Twilight mode.
the TX7 captured good color in still images
Sony made some interesting choices with the Cyber-shot DSC-TX7. Rather than offering more megapixels, this compact camera offers a longer feature list. While other point & shoots are upping the megapixel count to 12 and 14, the TX7 actually takes a step back to 10 megapixels, and it is a better camera for that. We found that it shot good looking images, with low noise and a good amount of detail.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a slim 10.2 Megapixel compact with a 4x optical zoom lens and a wide 3.5in touch-screen LCD.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a slim compact with a large touch-screen display and a number of unique features. The optical zoom may have an average 4x total range, but starts at a very useful and very wide 25mm equivalent, and can also be adjusted while you film videos. Speaking of movies, the TX7 also boasts nothing less than Full HD 1080i capabilities, when most rivals are still satisfied with 720p.
In short, the TX7 does what it does well; compact it certainly is, but within the limits that small size places on the design and handling
In short, the TX7 does what it does well; compact it certainly is, but within the limits that small size places on the design and handling; ditto the touchscreen and its (easily lost) stylus or "paint pen", so called as it is designed for use with the camera's accompanying paint software. However, we were left liking the TX7 for both its simplicity of use and the camera's "Why go into the menus? There's not much to control anyway" ethos.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 looks stylish; it retains the slide-down lens cover we saw on the Cyber-shot DSC-TX1 and it feels solidly built except for the battery compartment.
Despite some comfort issues with its design, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a capable of capturing vibrant colours and deep blacks, and its high ISO performance is not too bad either. It will suit travellers who want a hybrid camera with which to take high-def video as well as still photos. It's worth noting that Sony has finally warmed to the SD card format; this camera has a slot that can accommodate both SD and Memory Stick Pro DUO formats.
great image quality
Few cameras in this price range offer as much as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7. We've got an arsenal of low-light fighting shooting modes, 1080i HD video, an awesome Panorama Sweep mode, compact size and sexy style, and the ability to shoot with SD cards in addition to Sony's proprietary Memory Stick PRO Duo. The Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS is a direct competitor, as well as the newly announced Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX700.
Measuring 3.75 by 2.38 by 0.66 inches and weighing five ounces, the DSC-TX1 is small enough to fit into a coat pocket, and it won't take up a lot of room in a purse.
The good-looking Cyber-shot DSC-TX1 offers a great panorama feature and a nice touchscreen, but switching between modes is time-consuming.
images are clean with a good amount of visible detail.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX1 is a super-slim camera that packs in a competent image sensor and takes reasonable photos. It's not particularly fast and its high ISO settings introduce significant noise, but it might be a decent camera to take out for a night on the town.
There are just a few low-key logos and icons, but the overall feel of the TX1 is very slick, and our dark gray edition looked super cool.
While DSLRs generate huge amounts of online buzz, point-and-shoot digital cameras generate huge amounts of sales. An analyst told us that over 30 million digicams will be purchased this year, the majority for less than $199. Yet if you’re at this site, a low-priced model is not your target, and we’re not too thrilled with them either.
