Sony DSC-W800

 

Sony has announced a new compact point and shoot digicam, the Cyber-shot DSC-W800. Sony's camera includes a 20-megapixel CCD image sensor mated to a BIONZ image processor and a 5x optical zoom lens. While CCD sensors are not the best in lower lightning...

Sony W800 Review

 

The Sony W800 follows the Sony W710 from 2013 and takes aim at the teenage crowd or anyone wanting an inexpensive option to keep with you at all times for casual, on-the-go shooting.

The Sony Cyber-shot W800 begins shipping in March 2014 for around US$80 and will come in black and white.

Sony Cyber-shot W800 review

 

Sony's bargain Cyber-shot is big on features but light on your pocket

Reasonable performance in good light ; Some manual control ; Compact and lightweight ; Low price

Poor low light image quality ; Extremely soft panoramas ; Very limited LCD viewing angles ; Restricted zoom range

If you're after a simple point and shoot camera that'll slip easily into a pocket or bag and perform reliably, the W800 fits the bill. But if you pay just a little more you can get cameras with longer zooms and better quality.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 is an entry-level point-and-shoot compact camera without many bells and whistles. It doesn't have the Exmor R sensor that more expensive Sony compacts do, nor wi-fi, and it's stuck with an unremarkable 5x zoom lens....

Sony Cyber-shot W800 Quick Review

 

We review the Sony Cyber-shot W800, the cheapest main brand digital camera currently available.

The Sony Cyber-shot W800 doesn’t offer any of the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect from cameras released in the last couple of years, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or NFC, however, at this price point that’s no real surprise. The camera provides...

Consumer review (sony.com)

Easy to use

 

Bought the product a few weeks ago. My main reason for buying this product was ease of use. I did not want anything where I had to wade through pages of instructions. Price also played a part as I wanted a camera to take snapshots.
