Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 is a budget compact point-and-shoot camera with a 25-200 mm (8x) optical zoom and 20Mp resolution. It's slim, lightweight and highly portable, with a reasonable flash and monitor screen. But can it take good pictures, or...

Sony Cyber-shot W830 Reader Review

 

We speak to Ben Waller who's been shooting with the Sony Cyber-shot W830, a budget camera with a 20mp sensor and 8x optical zoom.

The Sony Cyber-shot W830 doesn't feature Wi-Fi and other connectivity options but is one of the cheapest compact cameras with optical image stabilisation. In good weather, the camera produces images with bright saturated colours, and images will look...

Sony DSC-W830

 

At CES 2014, Sony announced its latest compact zoom Cyber-shot digital camera, the DSC-W830. While it may feature 20.1 effective megapixels like the other camera mentioned today, the α5000, this W830 only features a Super HAD CCD image sensor, which...

Sony W830 Review

 

With the Cyber-shot W830, Sony answers the consumer photographer on a tight budget who still needs a reasonably generous zoom range and extremely high resolution -- on paper, at least, as we've not yet put the camera through our lab to test real-world...

Available from February 2014 in silver, pink, or black-bodied versions, the Sony W830 is priced at US$120 or thereabouts, a slight $20 less than last year's model.

Sony Cyber-shot W830

 

The Sony Cyber-shot W830 is a mid-range point-and-shoot compact with an 8x optical zoom and 20.1 Megapixel CCD sensor. Introduced into the Cyber-shot range at the beginning of 2014, the W830 has a 2.7 inch screen and can shoot 720p HD video. It lacks...

8x stabilised optical zoom ; 360 degree Sweep Panorama ; Dedicated movie mode ; In-camera battery charging

Fiddly shutter release ; Lacklustre screen with narrow vertical viewing angle ; No Wifi

The Sony W830 is an uncomplicated proposition. It's a competitivitely priced ultra compact with an 8x zoom lens. There are models with bigger zooms, but they tend to come with bigger bodies and higher price tags. And there are more fully featured...

Pleased with the product - no problems.

 

Very pleased with the camera - I bought it to replace an earlier version of the same camera. This one has additional features. The earlier camera ceased to work - it had taken thousands of images in rough mountainous environment

Camera was a present for my son, he loves it

 

Brilliant pictures, quality very good, only negative comment thought the camera case should have been included rather than having to by seperate.

A lovely compact camera

 

I bought this camera to take on a holiday to Africa. It stayed charged for a few days at a time despite being turned on and off regularly. It's easy to use and whilst not the quality of a more professional camera (obviously!), it takes good photos. My...
