Seven megapixel snapshot cameras are in vogue at the moment, but which one do you go for? Cliff Smith gives the low-down on Sony's latest offering.

Sony DSC W7 Review. Sturdy build and feels good in the hand. This camera has seven megapixels and a three times zoom lens.

Good picture quality ; Good build quality ; Large LCD screen ; Rechargeable AA batteries supplied

"I really like the Sony DSC W7. It takes excellent pictures indoors as well as outside. Easy to use, it is a clear step up from a typical point and shoot digital camera. Highly recommended."

Great images, manual controls

Lacking in scene modes

This point-and-shoot camera takes high-quality photos, has a big LCD, and offers some manual controls for users who want to do more than just select scene modes.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W7

 

The zippy Cyber-shot DSC-W7 is a very good choice for a high-megapixel point-and-shoot.

Excellent 2.5-inch LCD. Very good performance.

Camera is a bit bulky and heavy. Picture quality could be a little better.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7 Review

 

Good clean results with excellent color and resolution, Very well built, Very low noise for a camera in this class, Fast focus, generally responsive operation, Easy to use and good handling, Good movie mode (MPEG), Excellent battery life (with NiMH),...

No aperture or shutter priority mode, Some highlight clipping in bright scenes, Minimum ISO 100 (50 would be nice), Results a bit soft and slightly over-sharpened, No manual/custom white balance mode, Flash recycle slow unless batteries very fresh,...

In a market where the trend is towards ever-smaller compact cameras Sony has, in the W series of cameras, provided an alternative for those who prefer something a little more substantial, and something a little more traditionally-styled.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W7 Digital Camera Camera

 

The $449 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W7 offers 7.2 megapixels, which is plenty for a point-and-shoot camera. It sports a 3X optical zoom and a big, 2.5-inch LCD and forgoes extensive scene modes in favor of some manual controls.

The silver case feels sturdy, though at about 9 ounces (with battery) the Cyber-shot DSC-W7 is a touch heavier than other cameras in its class. It's also a bit thicker, roughly the size of two standard packs of playing cards
