Sony Cybershot DSC-W35 Digital Camera Review

With the 7.2-megapixel Carl Zeiss Lens, DSC-W35 is one of latest compact digital cameras of Sony’s W-series. This series means that the camera is not as slim as an ultra-compact, but not as big as a high-end camera; it features some manual functions (adjustable flash level, contrast and sharpness), life histogram and a viewfinder for those who make photography more than just for the sake of vacation photos. Sony’s ultra-fast Real Imaging Processor circuit delivers quick start-up, fast shot-to-shot times, and long battery life (up to 380 shots).

With Sony’s Clear RAW imaging technology, you can push the cameras sensitivity up to ISO1000 without dramatically increasing picture noise. Further more, with the VAD-WB lens adapter, you can add 30mm diameter filters and make more creative shots. There are only 7 scene modes, but the minimum macro distance is 2cm.

The colors look natural and the contrast between lighter and darker areas works well, while focusing is better than many cameras manage to produce plus the fact that the photos stay sharp towards the edges.Sony DSC W35 is a simple, yet effective digital camera that provides colors and sharpness above average, handles sun glare well and all in all produces a pretty good picture.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".

  1. Looks like a nice model Sony Cybershot. It’s great to have a macro at 2cm. I’ve used the Canon S3IS macro and it’s heaps of fun.
