CNET has recently posted a review of the Sony CyberShot DSC-W50, a 6.0 megapixel (CCD) point-and-shoot digital camera with Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens (38 – 114mm equivalent), and a 2.5″ LCD Screen.
“As we said about the DSC-W30, the photos have decent exposure and dynamic range, without the blown-out highlights produced by many cameras in this class. Colors are accurate but slightly oversaturated, especially the reds and oranges. Noise is the biggest issue with these models: while barely visible at ISO 80, smearing from the noise-reduction algorithm becomes evident at ISO 200 and starts to develop severe color shifts at ISO 400 and beyond. It’s better than nothing if you can’t use the flash, however.”
