Sony Cybershot DSC-H3 Digital Camera Review

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3 has pretty much everything that a high zoom SLR-like camera (it’s still not a SLR, it comes with an integrated lens) should have: full manual controls, RAW mode, pop-up flash, histogram display, features like face detection and image stabilization, but, it lacks a viewfinder (nor electronic or optical). 10x optical zoom and 8 megapixels are satisfying for anyone who goes deeply into photography when combined with the manual functions, but, the image quality is not as good as the one provided by similar cameras: noisy shots starting from ISO 400. The camera took 1.8 seconds to start up and capture its first JPEG, 1.3 seconds between JPEGs with the flash disabled and 2.6 seconds between shots with the flash turned on. Shutter lag is between 0.4 second and 1 second while continuous shooting mode speed is 2fps regardless of the image size. An advantage of this camera … Read more…

Sony Cybershot DSC-S700 Digital Camera Review

The S series from Sony is offering compact affordable cameras different from the ultra-compact stylish ones not just because of the design but also because these have less shooting options. The S700 in particular is a 7.2 megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom and a 2.4 inch LCD. In program auto, you can change color settings, metering modes, white balance, ISO, JPEG compression level, flash level, and sharpness. The mode dial and shutter release on the top are easy to operate and the zoom button is a bit tiny. Shutter lag, when you’ve already achieved a focus and exposure lock, is around 0.2-0.3 seconds and, in well-lit conditions, focus is achieved in under 0.5 seconds (low light condition under 1 sec.). LCD is fairly visible in bright sun; if you purchase high power AA rechargeable batteries, you’ll be able to take allot of pictures (over 400) due to the camera’s … Read more…

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. Compared to DSC-W35 it has the same lens, same megapixels but a larger LCD. The look and feel of this camera is pleasant: a metal design (except the plastic door for memory card and battery), available in silver, black, light blue, and pink. It’s easy to hold and operate, a bit lighter than the above mentioned cameras, and fits in pockets. It’s a funny thing that this camera does have an optical viewfinder and a ton of accessories considering its compact size, but doesn’t have Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority (100% point-and-shoot camera, with no manual controls) so I really don’t understand who’s the target here.
