okay so im no photographer but stick with me ill do my best.
I bought this camera as im a designer and often need to take photos of things to build up research for particular projects. I bought this particular camera as it was recommended by a friend.
This is a fantastic little camera and does all i expect of it and more. It still remains one of the smaller digital cameras on the market and slips into the pocket with ease,no bigger than a standard mobile phone.It carries with it a great deal of functions including the usual sort of landscape and portrait modes etc,but one function i find really useful is the video function.This camera allows you to take videos,and obviously the bigger your memory card the longer the video.The zoom factor i found to be a bit of a problem,it only has a 3times optical zoom,which is in no way poor,but i think its now a little dated and i personally need something more substantial.The picture quality is simply fantastic,its always crisp and clear and can be easily blown up without any picture loss.One feature i particularly like is the shake feature,its senses when theres shakin and stabilises the camera to take a still photo,BRILLIANT!!
The camera is very robust and the metal casing is very tough,puts up with some real brunt!!!
great camera for the price,perhaps a little dated
I'v had this camara for about 3 years now. Its on its way out as when you press play to view back the last photo you took it dosnt want to stay and keeps reverting back to the viewfinder. So im hoping to get the upgraded version which is 13.1mpx for Christmas.
The quality is pretty good for a digital camara. I take many pictures and experiment in different lights, retouch photos e.c.t and people always ask what camara I use when they see my photos. It performs especially well in day light but not so great in the evenings. Im hoping the new version will be better at eveining shots.
Its easy to use with a dial for different settings such as automatic, movement shots e.c.t. You can turn the flash on and off to suit your needs and it has a macro for close up shots. You can also take shot in black and white or sepia.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 is an ideal camera for starting out right in digital photography, combining the quality of 6.0 megapixels and Carl Zeiss 3X Optical zoom, the performance of High Sensitivity mode for great low-light shots, the simplicity of on-screen Function Guide for easy setup, and the convenience of 32 MB Internal Memory for shooting images in-camera.
