Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S2100 review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S2100 is the company's entry-level compact camera. It's currently the only model in Sony's 2010 lineup to feature AA-size batteries. That is really its key selling point other than a larger-than-typical LCD. The camera is...

Takes AA-size batteries; simple operation; 3-inch LCD.

Bare-minimum features; soft, smeary photos.

Though it doesn't offer anything beyond basics, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S2100 is a decent AA-battery-powered entry-level compact.

With 12.1 megapixels, it ensures superior quality pictures with a very high resolution. The images from the Sony 2100 even when enlarged retain the high quality resolution. It has a large screen and is very user friendly.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S2100

 

Excellent picture quality

The camera is more difficult to use than my 7 year old DSC W1! The only regret is the brand seem to have made the camera more challenging to use, when it should use some thought and make stuff to be easier to use! Reading a manual was not my idea, and...

it's quite easy to use, nice size,

The images often come out blurry and need to be taken a few times before are good enough and this is a major low point. Zoom could be a bit better
