Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W650 (Silver)

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W650 is a fairly basic point-and-shoot, good for casual photographers in need of a small, lightweight camera that performs well in auto. It doesn't require the user to do much beyond turning it on and pressing the shutter...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W650 is an attractive, easy-to-use ultracompact camera with a few nice extras for its sub-$140 price tag.

Photos taken above ISO 200 are noticeably soft, and the camera's shooting performance is too slow for moving or impatient subjects.

For simple snapshots of stationary subjects, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W650 should do the trick. At least, as long as you have plenty of light.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W650

 

The W-series has done really well in the past couple years, blending a diminutive size with stylish brushed-metal body and snappy performance. The W650 is $20 more than the W620 but gains an extra 2 megapixels, a better 5x zoom with 25mm wide-angle,...

Great camera, bad deal

 

Save time and buy a new Sony DSC-W650 at B.B. for $10 less and no waiting.

16 MP with a Carl Zeiss lens is great. Large screen, light weight and, easy to use controls

NO SD card furnished. And OLD battery. The first Camera was returned because it could not keep a charge. (required trip to UPS) Also, B.B. is selling the same (new not referb) for $10 less and could have saved two weeks
