Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 review

 

With its attractive specifications and fun feature set wrapped up in attractive black , red , silver , or gold brushed-metal body, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 looks good on paper. However, the W150 fails to live up to its potential, mostly because of...

Nice design; a lot of shooting and playback options; effective optical image stabilization; 28mm wide-angle lens with 5x zoom.

So-so photo quality.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 ranks above average on looks and features, but it doesn't quite match up on photo quality.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W150

 

The Sony Cybershot DSC-W150 is a mid-range point-and-shoot digital camera that embodies the spirit of middle range point-and-shoot cameras. While the camera technically falls under the category of ?ultra compact,? the DSC-W150 is a little bulkier than...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 Review

 

Alright, with that out of the way, we can begin our review of the Cyber-shot DSC-W150

Very good photo quality; ISO 800 still usable ; 5X optical zoom lens with nice 30 - 150 mm range ; Optical image stabilization ; Compact metal body comes in four colors ; Large and sharp 2.7" LCD display; good outdoor and low light visibility ; Optical...

Noise reduction smudges fine details, even at ISO 80 (though it's not too bad) ; Redeye a big problem (but at least you can fix it) ; Lens is on the slow side ; Clunky user interface ; No manual controls ; 10 minute movie clip limit ; Flimsy plastic...

If you want a compact camera with a semi-wide-angle 5X zoom lens, image stabilization, and fun point-and-shoot features, then it's worth checking out the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150. If you desire manual controls, shoot under unusual lighting conditions,...

Sony Cybershot DSC-W150 Review

 

The Sony Cybershot DSC-W150 is an attractive little camera with a $249 suggested retail price tag. It captures high-quality photographs in a variety of lighting conditions. I took it with me on a business trip to Miami and also used it to photograph...

Small and lightweight - perfect for carrying in a pocket or purse., Super SteadyShot image stabilization., Excellent image quality in a variety of conditions., 8.1 megapixels for prints to 16×20 inches., 5x optical zoom (30-150mm equivalent)., Large,...

Menu settings and mode dial less than intuitive., No manual shutter or aperture control., ISO can only be changed in Program Auto mode., Only a handful of exposure modes., Tiny optical viewfinder does not show full scene.

I have mixed feelings about the Sony Cybershot DSC-W150. While it was far from love at first use, I find I'm a little sad to have to send my review copy back. I really like how easily the W150 fits into my purse and the excellent image quality it produces

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 Review

 

In the brace of new Cyber-shot W models that Sony unveiled earlier in the year, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 falls squarely in the middle in terms of both price and features. Given its "middle child" status, the W150 also arguably provides the most...

Fast AF, no perceptible shutter lag, Higher ISOs clean and usable, Enough playback tools to keep you entertained for awhile, Truly impressive battery life

Red channel clipping a real problem, Auto white balance is disappointing indoors, Flash shots full of red eyes, Menus still complex, confusing, and laggy to page through

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150

 

A competent compact

Sharp pictures, 5x optical zoom with stabilisation, smile shutter is kind of nifty

Slow interface, sluggish shot-to-shot time, purple fringing and haloing issues

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-W150 is a fairly decent compact cameras with a few niggling issues. Aside from some purple fringing it captures good shots. The interface and shot taking can be extremely slow at times, which is frustrating.
