Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W220 review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W220 subtly makes you give up features to get below the crucial $200 price point. For example, the W220's linemate, the W290 , has a longer, wider lens, larger LCD, HD movie capture, and a few other extras pushing its street...

Above-average feature set; nice design.

No optical zoom while recording video; photo quality drops off above ISO 200; above-average chromatic aberration.

Sony's careful feature trimming results in the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W220: a well-rounded pocket camera for less than $180.

Sony CyberShot DSC-W220 Review

 

The new Sony Cybershot DSC-W220 is Sony's newest edition to their Cyber-shot lineup and while they haven't exactly reinvented the wheel with their new camera, they have made a very nice product that is a great addition to any camera enthusiast's or...

The camera itself is a slimmed down version of Sony’s other product in the same lineup, the Sony Cybershot DSC-W290. There isn’t much different about the exterior of the camera from that device except a slightly smaller LCD screen and a different lens....
