Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W370 review

 

On the surface, the specs-to-price ratio of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W370 is excellent. It has a 14-megapixel resolution, a 7x zoom lens, a 3-inch LCD, supports 720p HD movie capture, and has an HDMI output for quickly connecting to an HDTV--all for...

Simple to operate; 7x zoom lens in a compact body; inexpensive for its general specifications.

Long shutter lag; mediocre low-light photos; lower-end components.

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-W370 is an inexpensive compact camera with a long lens; however, its shutter lag and low-light photo quality keep it from earning a higher rating.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W370

 

The 14.1-megapixel Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W370 is a solid point-and-shoot camera with a decent array of features for the price ($230 as of March 31, 2010), including a 7X-optical-zoom lens (34mm to 238mm), a 3-inch LCD screen, and 720p high-definition...

Sweep Panorama shooting mode ; 7X optical zoom with good stabilization

Lots of lag time between actions ; A bit big and clunky

The DSC-W370 has a great zoom range and a lot of extras for a point-and-shoot that costs about $200, but the lag time between actions is a major drag.
