Sony Cyber-Shot W55 review: Sony Cyber-Shot W55

 

Sony Cyber-Shot W55

Solid image quality and performance; brushed-aluminum faceplate is a pretty touch for a budget model.

Plastic body; review button is not easy to press.

It's not the fanciest camera, but quick performance and solid images make this sub-$200 shooter a worthwhile pick.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera - Full Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

The 7.2 megapixel Sony DSC-W55 features a 3x optical zoom lens with Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar branding, 2.5" 115,000 pixel LCD display, optical viewfinder, and a maximum sensitivity of ISO 1,000 equivalent. Auto and Programmed Auto exposure modes are...

Fast, very good shutter response, good shot to shot speed ; Fairly fast startup/shutdown time ; Good color accuracy ; High-ISO image quality is much improved over the earlier W50 ; Very capable movie mode ; Very fast multi-burst (reduced resolution)...

Macro mode shows severe curvature of field/blurry corners ; So-so handling of household incandescent lighting ; No custom/manual white balance option ; Somewhat limited low-light capability ; High noise at high sensitivity settings ; Rather contrasty...

Like other Sony models, the W55 uses Memory Stick Duo memory cards and comes with a fairly generous 56MB of internal memory available for image storage. Sony DSC-W55 interfaces include USB 2.0 (high-speed), A/V (NTSC or PAL), and DC input via a dummy...

Sony Cybershot DSC-W55 Digital Camera Review

 

The W55 is an ultra-compact, point-and-shoot camera with a 3X zoom lens, 2.5″ LCD display and the usual 3x optical zoom. Compared to the previous DSC-W50, it boots 1MB up, has nearly twice as much built-in memory and a little more battery power....

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55

 

It's typical of Sony that the Cyber-shot DSC-W55 is a classy looking number. Our model came finished in a cool silver colour scheme and decorated with subtle details that make it appear far pricier than £147.

Good looking and comfortable to use, the Sony produces decent-looking shots. It's relatively expensive for a compact model, and it uses only proprietary Sony memory. But this is one nifty digital camera.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55

 

It's not the fanciest camera, but quick performance and solid images make this sub-AU$500 shooter a worthwhile pick.

Solid image quality and performance ; Brushed-aluminum faceplate is a pretty touch for a budget model

Plastic body ; Review button is not easy to press

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 doesn't have any notable or unique features, but its quick performance and solid picture quality make it a fine choice budget choice, plus it offers a larger screen and a nicer finish for just AU$50 more than the W35.
