Sony can definitely produce a good looking compact digital camera, but does the W70 stand out for its performance too?

Sony Cyber-shot W70

 

Another Sony Cyber-shot- but is it just more of the same

There's nothing out of the ordinary here, but the W70 is nonetheless, a good looking- strong performer, with impressive high ISO qualities.

Sony DSC W70

 

Seven megapixels, a three times zoom lens and small enough to slip into your pocket on a night out. The Sony DSC W70 is easy to use and is likely to prove to be a popular digital camera.

"The Sony DSC W70 is a sensibly priced pocket sized digital camera. There are a lot of plus points about the camera. These include picture quality and ease of use. The camera also has a pleasant, simple design. Definitely worth a close look."

Sony's 7.2 megapixel Cybershot DSC-W70 reviewed

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W70 review

 

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W70 Aside from its 7-megapixel sensor, the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W70 is physically and functionally identical to its series brethren, the 6-megapixel DSC-W50 and the 8-megapixel DSC-W100 . And just like its siblings, the DSC-W70...

Can take very good photos in sufficient light; compact; easy to use; decent performance.

Photos display processing artifacts in shadow areas; above-average noise at ISO 200 and higher.

The ultracompact Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W70 is a competent snapshooter, but its cheaper, lower-resolution siblings, the DSC-W30 and DSC-W50, are better values.

Sony rounds out the 2006 W-series line of digital still cameras with two top-end models packed with powerful features -- the 8-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-W100 and the 7-megapixel DSC-W70. Both cameras are equipped with an eye-level viewfinder and a large...
