Review: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200

 

What does Sony love to deliver most – besides overblown speeches about giant enemy crabs? Products that jam multiple components into delightfully, mysteriously small packages....

Optical image stabilization, face detection techniques, and 9-point autofocus system generate handsome snapshots. Buttery smooth 3x (35 to 105-mm film equivalent) optical zoom. Fast shooting: 1.7 seconds from power-on to first shot and 0.6 second...

Outrageous 0 price tag – we’ve found 7-megapixel cameras with similar performance and image quality at almost half the price. 2.5-inch LCD has a grainy quality and mediocre detail

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 review

 

I couldn't have asked for a better example of the evils of sensor-resolution specmanship than Sony's 12-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-W200. This top-of-the-food-chain addition to the otherwise sensible W series--not exactly budget cameras, but reasonably...

Compact, attractive design; optical image-stabilizer; manual exposure mode.

Requires far more light for low ISO shots than most competitors; exceptionally long flash-recycle time and disappointing shot-to-shot performance; image-processing artifacts; LCD has poor off-angle viewing; proprietary USB cable.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200's 12-megapixel sensor raises the price of an otherwise decent snapshot camera, with little benefit. The W90 and W80 are better deals.

Sony DSC-W200

 

At the top of Sony's "W" series of point-n-shoot models is the DSC-W200, the most compact 12-megapixel camera in the industry (as of 8/2007). It is followed by the 8-megapixel DSC-W90 unit and the 7.2- megapixel DSC-W80 model. All sport Carl Zeiss® 3x...

The new W-series models incorporate selectable in-camera editing functions that can save you from hours of post-editing time at the computer. Equipped with Sony's Dynamic Range Optimizer, the cameras can analyze captured image data and instantly...

Sony Cybershot DSC W200 review

The Sony DSC-W200 is a compact camera that is a joy to use. Thanks to its small size you can easily carry it with you in the pocket of your trousers or jacket. This is particularly nice when travelling. The performance is excellent. Pictures can be...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 Review

 

At first glance the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 looks like a fairly run-of-the mill compact camera, with an understated, compact silver body, 3x zoom lens (35-105mm) and 2.5 inch LCD screen. Look a little closer though, and you'll find that there are some...

On paper the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 promises to be one of the more interesting compacts around for the keen shutterbug. Ultimately, however, it's let down by a combination of poor image quality, mixed responsiveness and strange implementation of...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 Digital Camera - Express Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

While not as tiny as models in Sony's T-series, the Sony Cyber-shot W200 is still quite small and pocket-friendly, and boasts an impressive 12.1-megapixel CCD in its small body. Though compact in size, the Sony W200 offers an excellent range of...

Tiny size, portable and stylish ; Full manual exposure control, plus full auto mode when you need it ; Useful range of preset shooting modes ; Great overall color ; Large 2.5-inch LCD monitor ; Face Detection 2 optimizes exposure and focus for faces ;...

High barrel distortion is noticeable in images ; Fairly strong chromatic aberration ; Strong oversaturation in reds, may be more than many consumers find pleasing ; Slightly limited flash range ; Strong contrast under harsh lighting, camera also dims...

Also included on the W200 are nine preset shooting modes, which add flexibility in common, yet tricky conditions. Among the standard Twilight, Soft Snap, and Landscape options are also Beach, Snow, Fireworks, and two High Sensitivity modes (High and...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 12.1-Megapixel Pocket Camera; Taking A Fun Camera Seriously

 

(Top): The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 is a shirt pocket-sized digital camera that's capable of producing very large, high-quality prints.

The workings of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 can be learned almost entirely without reference to a handbook, simply by sitting down with it, turning on the LCD menu screen and toggling through the modes and commands. Each mode setting and function is...
