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.
The camera is small and thin enough to fit in your pocket. The zoom feature, image quality, and special effects take this a step above many cell phone cameras. If you have a decent cell phone camera and don't care about the special effects of this camera, I recommend looking for something more expensive or just sticking with your cell phone. For a budget camera though, you get a variety of nice features and good image quality.
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.
I am a regular traveler, who uses the camera on these travels only, and for me that camera worked perfectly. It's light, easy to deal with and lots of mpixels for you to have fun. The quality of the pics is something that has amazed me compare to my old digital camera. Overall, Im very satisfied with this product.
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.
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??
Budget-friendly price tag
With the Cyber-shot DSC-W610 everything comes down to price. The camera costs just over $100, which makes it the most affordable cameras on the market, and definitely the cheapest new model Sony announced at CES. Sony kept the price down by making the W610 a simple camera. It doesnâ?? t have the flashy features and controls that you get on higher-end cameras, but itâ?? s got everything you need if all you want to do is point and shoot.
A very good camera. Not perfect, but still very good
Taken everything into consideration I am happy with this camera so far. I take it everywhere with me and its small enough to fit in my pants pocket without that embarrassing bulge. I think this camera will easily fit your needs for a very good P&S camera and then some. Yeah, I'll always wish back to the days of the DSCN1, but until someone invents a *working* time machine I'll happily use my new WX9.
Slick little camera
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9 is a slick little camera with a few new features that will definitely appeal to entry-level users. The 3.0-inch 921k LCD looks beautiful and the ability to shoot 1080/60i video is sure to raise some interest. Of course, performance is everything and we're most intrigued to see if the new 16MP Exmor R CMOS sensor will improve the camera's performance. Until then, the WX9 is just another point-and-shoot camera with loads of potential.
Excellent little compact camera
The Sony CybersShot DSC-WX9 is an excellent little compact camera packed full of clever solutions and innovative ideas to help make your photos something to be proud of. Take photos, 3D shots, panoramas or perhaps even HD movies, all using straightforward controls and simple to use features.
Best camera under $200
The Sony DSC-WX9 is the best camera under $200 we have ever tested. Is it perfect-our dream two-in-one camera? Hardly but we're getting there. As noted earlier, we had the $219 WX9 along with the $299 12MP Nikon S8100 and $249 12MP Canon 300 HS during one part of our trial. They're not totally apples-to-apples comparisons but one's within shouting distance, namely the Canon 300 HS which has a 5x 24-120mm zoom versus the 5x 25-125mm of the Sony.
