There is something about the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830

The death of the digital camera has already been sounded by the Smart Phone. But that has not stopped the Camera Companies from launching newer models every year. But the writing on the wall is clear. Manufacturers of Digital Cameras have on the other hand decided to go all out on one critical fact that due to the space restrictions in a smartphone, it can never replace a camera. Today we look at a popular mid range Point and Shoot Camera Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830.

USP of Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830

A simple point and shoot should be small in size and easy to carry. It should be lightweight and light on the pocket. Though no one minds carrying extra batteries, but a pocket digital camera should last a whole day on a single charge. And of course, it should take great photographs.

Literally speaking Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 fits all of the above and hence looks like we have got a winner on hands.

A few specs of DSC – W830

20.1 MP CCD sensor – more pixels

Zeiss lens – a good industry standard

8x optical zoom – get your subjects closer

Optical Steady shot image stabilisation – great for shaky hands, don’t rely on this too much

Beautiful Effects – retouch photos on the fly

Fast Autofocus – no wasting time to capture the great photograph

This particular feature has been highlighted as the one which can never be introduced in a smartphone. Here is a screen shot of the description of the camera on Sony Website

What are customers saying

Most customers are happy with the image quality and the features offered by the camera. As most of the customers are going to use it in auto mode, this part works fairly good. Video quality at night is not that great. Users have also found the price to be sweet and the goodies offered by the seller, SD Card, pouch, batteries and so on. But do check with the seller as to what they are offering as the offers keep changing.
