Sony CyberShot DSC-S700 Reviews

GoodGearGuide reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S700 and writes;
“Colour response was impressive, with Imatest giving this camera a strong score in these tests. The end result is a fairly natural balance that will suit happy snappers nicely… Nikon’s S700 isn’t an incredible compact camera, but it does the job combining good pictures with a reasonable feature set, which will be fine for most consumers.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DigitalCameraInfo reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S700 and writes;
“We take cameras outside to capture moving cars and pedestrians on the street. The S700’s video looks very similar to the S510’s; good-looking exposure, but substantial moiré, visible noise, stuttering as objects move off the frame, and rather dull colors. Overall, the video looks decent for a digital camera, but doesn’t look as good as the similarly-priced Canon SD870 IS, for example.”
Rating: N/A reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S700 and writes;
“However, flash balance was well controlled and exposures between ISO 400 and ISO 3200 were very evenly balanced. Image noise became visible at ISO 800 and shots looked slightly softer than at ISO 400. Colour reproduction and contrast remained good right up to ISO 3200, although noise granularity became progressively more obvious as sensitivity was increased. At the ISO 3200, images were printable up to snapshot size (but no larger).”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S700 and writes;
“Compared with many low-budget models, the S700 performs pretty well. It powers on and shoots in just under 2 seconds. In good light when there are no contrast problems to challenge the autofocus, it focuses and shoots in 0.8 second–tolerable, but not great. But when the lights dim and contrast decreases, shutter lag increases just a bit to 1.1 seconds, which is very good for its class. The bottom line: Other models do budget better than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700. ”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

ImagingResource reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S700 and writes;
“Compared to its competitors over the last couple years, the Sony S700’s two-second startup time and 1.5-second shutdown time are both above average… The Sony S700’s Movie mode was a disappointment, offering just 320 x 240 pixel resolution, no zoom and no refocus as my sample movie shows. ”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S700 and writes;
“Image quality is pleasing for an entry-level 7-megapixel model. Outdoors, the majority of our images were sharp, well exposed, and showed good color saturation..Bottom line – I was pleased with Sony’s new entry-level model. It offers good image quality, performance, plenty of exposure modes, a durable all-metal body, and a great price at US$180 or less. ”

DigitalCameraReview reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S700 and writes;
“The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 is an entry-level camera meant for first time digital camera buyers or someone who wants an easy to use camera. Quick performance, excellent battery life, and good image quality make this camera worthy of consideration. The controls aren’t very comfortable, so definitely try before you buy, but the build quality is very high with a stylish metal body. ”

3X Optical Zoom Lens
The 3X optical zoom helps bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots quickly for better composition—a real advantage for family sports, outdoor fun and travel photos.

High Sensitivity
With high sensitivity of ISO 1000, the DSC-S700 gives you better shots in low light so you can shoot without flash to preserve the mood—great for birthday parties, indoor gatherings and candid portraits.

    Where can I get a list of the symbols on the camera near the Power Switch.
    The current setting is on flash.
    I would like to photograph photographs from my old school magazine and the quality of the paper that was used is very poor. The magazine is from Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) when sanctions has been applied and we had to use what paper was available.
