ImagingResource have reviewed 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.
“Exposure remains under automatic control, something novices will appreciate, and its seven preprogrammed scene modes help with more tricky subjects. It’s a very responsive camera, with low shutter lag in daylight conditions, and excellent shot to shot speeds. It also sports very good battery life, a very capable movie mode, and excellent download speed. Finally, Sony makes a line of accessory lenses, filters, a slave flash, and even an underwater case for it as well, greatly expanding your options beyond what you’d normal expect from a compact digicam model. The bright 2.5-inch color LCD monitor is excellent for framing and reviewing shots, and the overall design and layout of the W50 is user-friendly and hassle-free. If you’re looking for a good “take anywhere” camera with great versatility and good color and tonality, the Sony DSC-W50 deserves a close look.”
