Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W530 review: A relatively cheap camera that's very light, but its image quality isn't great

Very light ; Easy to carry to all sorts of events

Poor image quality ; Poor shutter button ; Generally not fun to use

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W530 may be relatively inexpensive as far as compact cameras from Sony are concerned, but we don't think it's good value. Its image quality is merely adequate, its shutter button is awful and it just doesn't feel good to use at...

Sony W530 Cybershot Digital Camera

 

The W530 is light and compact and also comes in a few nifty colours, including bright pink and a peacock blue, which will make it stand out from the crowd. It has a large LCD screen measuring 7.5cm, which is used to frame your shots, as there is no...

The camera also offers the user the ability take video and upload any images and movies to a web-enabled computer, using its on-board PMB portable software.

Cybershot

 

We have bought 3 Sony Cybershot cameras, ranging from $200+ down to $90 and none of them have lasted more than a year. Very disappointed as I love the quality of the pictures, but having repairs quoted in ALL 3 of over $250, it's all a bit ridiculous....

Great Pictures

Do not last

great pocket camera

 

The first thing is that this camera is probably the best pocket camera in the world! It also does really good video! It really works for just events that pop up. I got some pictures of some deer in the newspaper because of this camera! The only thing...

Gets dirty fast

Good but not GREAT

 

Got this as a birthday gift, pictures take were out of this world, color and depth were amazing, auto-mode was simply idiot proof, just point and shoot. When you try to fidget around to use the other manual features, they aren't around, like setting...
