Sony Cybershot DSC-W230 review

 

The £165, 12Mp Sony Cybershot DSC-W230 is well-constructed and looks sharp, too. It's available in four colours: blue, black, red, and silver. Its 4X optical-zoom Carl Zeiss lens offers a 30mm film equivalent on the wide-angle end, with 120mm on the...

All in all, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 offers a great bundle of features for the price, as well as a great LCD and a wide-angle lens. It's one of the best point-and-shoots at this price level we've seen so far in 2009, even if it offers a bit less...

Sony Cybershot DSC-W230 review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 distinguishes itself from the pack in the £150 camera stakes.

Beautiful 3in LCD screen, a wide-angle lens, great in-camera features, and easy-as-pie access to scene modes

Flash exposure quality a weak spot

All in all, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 offers a great bundle of features for the price, as well as a great LCD and a wide-angle lens. It's one of the best point-and-shoots at this price level we've seen so far in 2009, even if it offers a bit less...

Sony Cybershot DSC-W230 review

 

In the realm of sub-£150 cameras, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 distinguishes itself from the pack with a beautiful 3in LCD screen, a wide-angle lens, great in-camera features, and easy-as-pie access to scene modes.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 digital camera

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 is a 12.1-megapixel compact camera equipped with a 4x optical zoom lens. While image quality is acceptably decent, its ma...

Intuitive and beginner-friendly interface, plus-sized LCD display, 30mm wide angle lens

Not as slim as other compacts on the market, underpowered flash

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 is an impressive compact camera that is especially suited to beginners. It takes good photos, comes with an enlarged LCD and has one of the best user interfaces we've seen. All in all, a solid effort.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230

 

Sony's $200 Cyber-shot DSC-W230 point-and-shoot delivers a high-end feature set—and unimpressive pictures—at a low-end price.

Large LCD. Low noise up to ISO 800. Fast. Easy-to-use. Affordable.

Major sharpness problems at image edges. LCD shows considerable motion blur.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 Point-and-Shoot Review

 

Excellent 3-inch LCD screen ; Fun UI and slideshow features

Image stabilization not always effective ; Proprietary USB connector

The slick DSC-W230 has a great LCD and neat in-camera features, but its image quality and stabilization could be better.
