Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 Review

 

The above entry-level compact camera segment is by far one of the most populated segments, as far as cameras in general are concerned. Brands cater to this audience by offering relatively affordable cameras that boast of neat features, such as high...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 is available in India at a maximum retail price of Rs.9,990. One may be able to get it for a little lesser as well in the market. This camera is an above entry-level camera and it is designed keeping both genders in mind....

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570Digital Camera Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 is a somewhat plain-looking ultracompact that offers a huge 16.1 megapixel count for a bargain price. We know megapixels aren?t everything though, so it?s up to this camera?s performance and features to set it apart.

Sony?s Cyber-shot DSC-W570 is in some ways a reviewer?s nightmare. This plain ultracompact takes no risks and never deviates from the category?s norm. There?s just not much here worth writing about. And while the same can be said for the majority of...

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W570 Review

 

The Cyber-Shot DSC-W570 is a competitive ultra-compact digicam in the sub $200 market. With a tiny frame that is packed with some of Sony's well-known technologies, the W570 has a lot to offer for a camera sporting a price tag of just $159 US or less....

Very sub-compact for easy carry and retrieval in pocket or handbag ; Although small, the control layout is comfortable ; Good shooting performance ; Captures nice 16-megapixel photos when using program mode ; Convenient control to quickly switch...

Weal built-in flash (typical for camera of this size however) ; High levels of noise at all ISO settings; can be seen indoors and out when pixel peeping ; iAuto seemed to produce images with increased noise and missing fine detail ; Zoom has less...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 (Silver)

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 is the successor to 2010's Cyber-shot DSC-W350 , a favorite ultracompact of mine and our readers. Sony didn't change much for the update, increasing resolution from 14 to 16 megapixels and putting in a slightly brighter,...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 is simple to use with reliable auto shooting and decent low-light photos in a very small body.

The W570's shooting performance--especially shot to shot--is slow, and the lens has some edge and corner softness.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 is a tiny and light ultracompact capable of taking nice photos with little to no effort.

A big sensor, but plain looks, plain features, plain performance

16.1 megapixel sensor

Color is inaccurate; High noise levels; Autofocus has issues

I bought my Sony DSC-W570 9.5 weeks ago. The battery door will not stay closed. I never dropped this camera. The latch is a tiny piece of plastic. I now have to send it to sony at my own cost. They will not replace the battery lost because the cove...

Takes great pictures.

I have to use a rubber band to keep the door closed. I was assured at Best Buy that this is the design and mine is not defective.
