Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55

 

It's typical of Sony that the Cyber-shot DSC-W55 is a classy looking number. Our model came finished in a cool silver colour scheme and decorated with subtle details that make it appear far pricier than £147.

Good looking and comfortable to use, the Sony produces decent-looking shots. It's relatively expensive for a compact model, and it uses only proprietary Sony memory. But this is one nifty digital camera.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55

 

A good camera at the price you are paying.

Good Value, not very complex, good battery life.

Very basic functionality, not very good zoom options.

Sony DSC W55

 

Value for money ; Add conversion lenses ; Viewfinder ; Overall picture quality ; Large internal memory

Redeye in indoor portrait

I found it difficult to find fault with the Sony DSC W55. For a pocket sized digital camera it is relatively inexpensive. Despite that it has all the regular features you would expect to find and is well worth a close look.

Sony Cyber-Shot W55 review: Sony Cyber-Shot W55

 

Sony Cyber-Shot W55

Solid image quality and performance; brushed-aluminum faceplate is a pretty touch for a budget model.

Plastic body; review button is not easy to press.

It's not the fanciest camera, but quick performance and solid images make this sub-$200 shooter a worthwhile pick.

It's not the fanciest camera, but quick performance and solid images make this sub-AU$500 shooter a worthwhile pick.

Solid image quality and performance ; Brushed-aluminum faceplate is a pretty touch for a budget model

Plastic body ; Review button is not easy to press

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 doesn't have any notable or unique features, but its quick performance and solid picture quality make it a fine choice budget choice, plus it offers a larger screen and a nicer finish for just AU$50 more than the W35.
