Easy but Powerful
Its a great package since it has so many features in a very light and small camera. Zoom and focus work great, panoramic pictures are very easy to take.
I bought it because I always wanted a good point and shoot for low light situations, and since it was one of the features advertised I wanted to give it a try, and I am very satisfied with them. Low light pictures are very good, even when you do not use the flash, can still get a good picture at night, with not so much light around.
Nice performance versus other small cameras
The Sony WX80 is very small, which means that its control buttons and LCD screen are also very small. This will represent a significant drawback with this camera, as anyone with large fingers will struggle to use this camera comfortably. Still, if you don't mind the small size of this model, it's a good option versus others in its sub-$200 price point.
Slim and pocket-friendly
Even though it boasts an array of attractive features, a compact body, and a few impressive highlights in our performance testing, the WX80's image quality is ultimately nothing special. While the prospect of having 1080p HD video, an 8x optical zoom, and WiFi connectivity in your pocket for under $200 seems enticing, the reality isn't quite that appealing.
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.
A mode for producing 360 degree panoramas
The Sony Cybershot DSC W630 may not be perfect when it comes to picture quality, but it does pack in enough features to make it worth a closer look. It scores highly for ease of use and features such as 360 panoramas and High Definition movies may make this camera an interesting option for you.
Image quality, both still and video, is good
Sony's new super zoom, the HX200 combines a gaggle of features such as GPS, a smile shutter, face detection, anti-blink technology, background defocus, a panorama sweep mode and one-touch full HD video capture capability in a relatively small, DSLR-like package with a big zoom lens and a high resolution sensor, at least by point-and-shoot standards. The camera establishes autofocus fairly quickly in good conditions and shoots promptly when the shutter is depressed.
Massive 30X, 27 - 810 mm zoom lens
Overall, the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX200V is a very good super zoom camera. Its photo quality isn't as good as I'd like, but for the majority of people who will buy it, the smudged details that you'd see when viewing the photos on your computer will just blend away when images are downsized for printing or web viewing. The HX200's big wins are in terms of performance and feature set (not to mention its huge 30X lens), which add up to a really fun-to-use camera.
High image quality
Undoubtedly the biggest recommendation we have with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V is that, by daylight, we were able to achieve sharp results shooting handheld with it with greater consistency than we have been able to achieve with pretty much any super zoom camera to date. The hand-held twilight mode selectable from within the scene modes also comes in very useful by night.
Good photo quality, if you don't look too closely
The Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V has virtually every feature imaginable for a super zoom camera, most of which allow you to take shots that were otherwise impossible. The image quality isn't great when viewed at 100%, but for most people, it's more than adequate.
Image quality is good, Solid body
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX200V is very similar to the HX20V, except it has more zoom, in a larger, SLR style body with an electronic viewfinder and tilting screen. There is an 18.2 megapixel sensor as well as a whole load of shooting features, extremely long battery life, making it an ideal travel camera.
Image Stabilisation for Video as well as Stills
Buying the Sony Cybershot DSC H90 can save you a few pounds compared to other cameras with a 16x zoom lens. This is a relatively compact model that can also shoot High Definition Movies.
The main reason why the Cybershot DSC H90 is a little cheaper than some similar cameras is that it does not have some of the features those cameras have. For example it does not have GPS tracking and its movie resolution is lower, although it can still produce HD quality.
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.
Simple menu system
The Cyber-shot DSC-W650 is priced competitively with its $139 MSRP, but the real question is what does this camera offer that you canâ?? t get with your cell phone camera? There are a number of extra features on the W650 worth talking about, including its 5x optical zoom lens, 720p HD video mode, and 360Â° Sweep Panorama setting that stitches multiple photos together into one wide image. Thereâ??
Style and design is very impressive
If the touch screen was perfect then the Sony Cybershot DSC TX55 would be a truly outstanding digital camera. As it is picture quality is hard to beat for such a small camera. Style and design is very impressive and the features on offer give you more or less everything you are likely to want in a point and shoot pocket camera and a bit more on top.
Small size and dashing good looks
Like every other camera under the sun, the true worth of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55 will depend on its picture quality. But we're impressed by its small size and dashing good looks, and the list of features jammed inside this compact snapper is not to be sniffed at.
Designed really well and the extremely compact
The camera has been designed really well and the extremely compact form factor adds to its style. This point and shoot has a lot of features thrown in it even though it is this small, making it a good camera for casual use. The different filters help in enhancing oneÃ¢Â? Â? s creative ability without the need to work that extra bit by going on to a PC for post processing. Performance-wise, one would enjoy this camera as it does well in indoors, outdoors, close-up as well as video recording.
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.
