Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 Reviews
TechRadar reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 and writes;
“You have to work to get used to the Sony, but once you’ve done that you’ll ﬁnd the image quality is good for interior shots but variable for outdoors.”
PCWorld reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 and writes;
“W170 has several very appealing features that may win over some people, but its image quality doesn’t overwhelm. I expected better performance from its 5X optical Carl Zeiss lens. Nevertheless, this camera’s interesting features are definitely a draw.”
LetsGoDigital reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 and writes;
“The image quality of the pictures is fine and colour reproduction shows beautiful and quite accurate colours. .. This is not a camera for the evening or in difficult light circumstances; it is a good-weather model…This is what forces us to conclude that the Sony Cybershot DSC-W170 performance is average.”
DCR reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 and writes;
“Pros: Crisp, clean images, even at high ISOs, Impressive features set, Sleek design, solid construction, DSLR-like shooting speed. Cons: Red channel clipping still a problem, White balance inconsistent, Menus can be dense, slow, Do you really need Happy Face Retouch?”
CNET reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 and writes;
“Images are crisp. Portraits are warm and detailed. The wealth of easily tweakable options in program mode gave us some excellent results, even in low light…The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 and the Casio Exilim EX-Z200 edge it on features and looks, but the W170 is still extremely adaptable.
Steve’sDigicams reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 and writes;
“This is a very capable consumer point-n-shoot, with robust performance, plenty of exposure options, great image quality, and loads of useful and “cool” technologies…”
Cameras.uk reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 and writes;
” This is a decent camera and I am sure the wide angle lens will come in handy for many people. It is easy to use and has the added attraction of a viewfinder. You can also slip this camera into most pockets without a problem. ”
ImagingResource reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W170 and writes;
“Despite all the fancy features and the attractive body, what makes the W170 a Dave’s Pick is its image quality. Don’t take a loupe to these 10.1-megapixel images, but print them and you’ll see what we mean. Good color and detail at large print sizes. And that, after all, is what you buy a camera for. ”
