Sony DSC W130

 

The Sony DSC W130 is an unfussy, pocket digital camera. It has 8 megapixels and a 4x optical zoom lens. It is also one of the cheaper pocket models on the market. Compared to other point and shoot cameras it is easy to use and has one or two useful...

Ease of use - price tag - viewfinder

Sharpness of distant subjects

"Simple and easy to use, the Sony DSC W130 is small and compact. It takes a decent shot in most situations. The camera has a simple design and the fact it has a viewfinder is likely to be a plus point to many people."

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W130 review

 

Sony inches its Cyber-shot W-series of compact snapshot cameras forward with the Cyber-Shot DSC-W130. This 8-megapixel shooter sports a shiny, colorful new shell and a slightly longer lens, but otherwise feels like a carbon copy of its predecessor, the...

Fast shutter; slightly longer-than-normal lens; handy on-camera editing and slide show functions

Softening around edges; noisy at ISO 800 and higher

The W130's quick performance and decent image quality make it a solid follow-up to the W90, and a good choice for a pocket point-and-shoot camera.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W130 Digital Camera - Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

At first glance, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W130 appears to have more external controls than some of the other compact digital cameras in its class, but looks can be deceiving. The DSC-W130 is actually a breeze to use, with a host of useful automatic...

Small, compact size ; Smile Shutter and Face Detection for good, in-focus pictures of kids ; Good selection of useful preset shooting modes ; Good overall color ; Steady Shot for reducing blur ; 9-point AF for accurate focus ; Large 2.5-inch LCD is...

High lens distortion at full wide angle and full telephoto ; Image noise and noise suppression high at ISO 400 and up ; Slightly pinkish Caucasian skin tone, plus some oversaturation of strong blues and reds ; Some blurring in corners at both zoom...

With an initial MSRP of US$229.99, the DSC-W130 starts out at a good price. You get a lot of resolution and a good zoom lens, plus a nice array of exposure modes and creative options for capturing unique images. The available exposure modes also...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W130

 

Like most point-and-shoot cameras these days, Sony built memory right into the DSC-W130, in lieu of bundling a memory card. The W130 has 15MB of memory, which won't hold very many 8 Megapixel photos. Thus, you'll want to buy yourself a Memory Stick Duo...

Very good photo quality; ISO 800 still usable ; 4X optical zoom lens with nice 32 - 128 mm zoom range ; Optical image stabilization ; Compact metal body comes in your choice of silver, black, or pink ; Good outdoor and low light visibility on the 2.5"...

Noise reduction smudges fine details, even at ISO 100 (though it's not too bad) ; Redeye a big problem (but at least you can fix it) ; Low resolution LCD ; Weak flash ; Clunky user interface (I'm talking to you, Home menu) ; No manual controls ; 10...

If you want a compact camera with a nice zoom range, image stabilization, very good photo quality and performance, and fun point-and-shoot features, then the DSC-W130 will do it, without breaking the bank. For those who shoot in unusual lighting, like...
