Sony W510 Cybershot Digital Camera

A great all round camera

 

I recently came back from holiday in Italy and took my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W510 camera with me. I must admit that since owning an iPhone where I have a camera constantly with me I rarely use a separate camera, but I wanted to on holiday as it is better...

Easy to use and got all the basic features you need

None really unless you want something more complex

Best value camera... EVER!

 

received this camera for Christmas from my mother. She isn't a technology sort of person and I suspect she bought this because of its very low price. However, she made a fantastic decision! The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W510 gives amazing quality images...

So so cheap without compromise on quality

Not too great in low light
