DigitalCameraReview reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W35 and writes;
“I reviewed the Sony W70 a while ago and was impressed with that camera. The W35 is one of the models in the latest generation of W cameras from Sony and I remain impressed. To begin with, the camera is compact and stylish. Then, when you get around to taking pictures (this is a camera, after all), it performs well, with detailed, colorful shots. Color saturation may be too high for some, but would make many people perfectly happy. The camera also operates quickly, with minimal shutter lag, fast shot to shot times and quick focus times. Battery life is excellent. Overall, this is a good choice for a compact point and shoot camera for someone who likes Sony cameras, wants quick operation, and wants something above the entry level S models but similar in price.”
CamerasUK reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W35 (rating: 81/100) and writes;
“Testing for shutter lag I was able to take a single photo in 0.27 seconds and five photos in 6.15 seconds. These are good times. When I turned the flash on the times increased, but only by a small amount. With flash a single photo took 0.42 seconds and five photos took 8.90 seconds. All in all a good performance….The Sony DSC W35 is an excellent, little digital camera when you look at the price tag. It is pocket sized, has a viewfinder and is available for around 100 pounds. Picture quality is very good and ease of use is another plus point.”
Steve’sDigicams has reviewed the Sony CyberShot DSC-W35 and writes;
“The image quality was very good for an entry-level consumer model. Our outdoor images were sharp, well exposed, and showed pleasing color saturation. However, I did notice some edge softness on the left hand side of the frame in several of our photos….Bottom line – Sony has put together yet another awesome “W” series model. The Cyber-shot DSC-W35 is an affordable “ultra-compact” that offers performance and features that rival more expensive 7-megapixel digicams. That said, the W35 offers and outstanding “Bang for your Buck” with a very reasonable street price of only US$179 or less. ”
CNET have reviewed the Sony CyberShot DSC-W35 where they rate the camera 7.2/10 and write;
“Images taken on the W35 were generally clear and pleasing. Despite the slight softening of some finer details, the photos were nice and crisp. Colors generally reproduced well, though users should remember to switch to the tungsten white balance when shooting indoors–our tungsten-lit test shots taken under automatic white balance were harsh and yellow. The good: Good color reproduction; solid performance; light and compact. The bad: The DSC-W35 has a tiny screen. The bottom line: For the price, this camera offers very good performance and image quality.”
