Can Sony's mid-range compact camera stand out from its competition?

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 review

 

Sony created the W-series to be its budget line of snapshot cameras. Without the sleek designs of the T-series or the high-powered zoom lenses of the H-series, the W-cameras distinguish themselves only through their modest price tags. Despite their...

Attractive new display; great performance and pictures.

Small buttons can sometimes feel awkward.

With a shiny new interface, fast performance, and great pictures, the DSC-W80 sits on the top of the budget snapshot heap.

Sony DSC W80

 

The Sony DSC W80 is another good quality digital camera in the Sony range of digital cameras. It will fit into a pocket, takes a decent shot, is very fast when it comes to shutter delay and is easy enough to use.

Low shutter lag - viewfinder - ease of use

The Sony DSC W80 is a mid priced, pocket sized digital camera. It performs well in most situations. I was also impressed by the speed of the camera when taking a photo. In fact when it comes to shutter lag it is the fastest camera I have tested for a...

A solid compact camera that combines speedy operation with above average image quality. If you're making enlargements the over sharpening may become an issue, but otherwise this is a good choice if you're after an all purpose model.

Extremely fast, Low noise shots, Good colour reproduction

No manual white balance, Over sharpening issues, Sluggish menu and controls

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80

 

If you're new to digital photography you may wish to read the Digital Photography Glossary before diving into this article (it may help you understand some of the terms used).

Good resolution, particularly in the middle of the frame ; Nice design - very slim, all-metal body ; HDTV output ; Decent macro ; Good image quality in good light; bright, sharp images with immediate 'consumer friendly' appeal ; Very reliable exposure...

Slow, unreliable focus in low light ; Combined effects of noise and noise reduction at high ISO's and in low light produces poor results ; Noise reduction effects visible even at low ISO settings ; Fiddly controls and fancy fade effects which make...

I haven't actually used a Sony Cyber-shot compact for about a year, and on previous experience I was expecting the W80 to sail through this review and emerge - even if not with flying colors - as an easy recommendation for anyone wanting a simple point...

Sony Cyber-shot DCS W80

 

Sony's 7.2 megapixel DSC-W80 boots quickly, and its 3x zoom lens focuses with minimal shutter delay. Plus, this cam includes a traditional, if tiny, optical viewfinder! The W80's optical image stabilization—at low shutter speeds the camera will move a...

Optical image stabilization performs well; decent image quality

High noise artifacting at or above 400 ISO
