Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3 Review - CNET

Sep 27, 2007 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3

With a rating of 7 out of 10 - Image quality from the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3 can be quite nice if you stick with ISOs 100 and 200, though that niceness is marred a bit by the lens’ noticeable distortion, as well as some purple fringing on high-contrast edges toward the edges of images.

I saw more noise than I would’ve liked at ISO 400. While images are still very usable and much of the noise is minimized during printing, there is a noticeable falloff in shadow detail and fine detail at ISO 400. Stepping up to ISO 800, noise increases only slightly, but there’s more of a falloff in shadow and fine detail. At ISO 1,600 noise becomes heavy and most shadow and fine detail is lost. The top sensitivity setting of ISO 3,200 yields extremely noisy images with completely blocked up shadows and fine details. For example, text which was crisp and clear at ISO 200 and below, becomes completely illegible at ISO 3,200. I suggest staying below ISO 1,600 when shooting with the H3 and sticking with ISO 100 or ISO 200 whenever possible

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Review - ImagingResource

Sep 25, 2007 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80

It’s hard to call the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 the bottom rung in the W-Series because it only gives up a few pixels for a lower price. Otherwise the Sony W80 has all the bells and whistles, making it a terrific bargain.

It has a Bionz processor, face detection technology, High ISO, Super SteadyShot, in-camera editing, and HD output signal. The Sony W80 does give away detail to hold onto color at higher ISO settings, but most users won’t mind that tradeoff, particularly if you only plan to make 4×6 prints. The color that the Sony W80 holds at ISO 1,600 is pretty good. HD output - particularly when played as a slide show with the built-in special effects and music - was stunning on the Sony W80, but only for stills. This isn’t an HD movie camera, and it even has trouble playing VGA movies through the dock accessory. But to see any HD output from this camera, you’ll have to buy an accessory cable, dock, or dock/printer.

Packing that big a technoload (new word, sorry) into such a small package at such a low price makes the W80 an easy Dave’s Pick.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A700 Review - PhotoReview

Sep 24, 2007 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A700

Despite taking a while to produce this camera, in the DSLR-A700 Sony has delivered a camera that enthusiasts can enjoy with features that will be of value to many professional photographers.

A nice step up from the A100, it goes head-to-head against Canon’s recently-released EOS 40D and Nikon’s D300, which is expected in November.

The only feature missing from the A700 that its rivals have is live viewing using the camera’s LCD screen. However, this is of only marginal benefit for most photographers and only provides an advantage over viewfinder-based shooting when the camera is tripod mounted and in situations where precise frame coverage is required. Outside of those occasions, the viewfinder gives a more accurate rendition of the hues and tonal intensities that will be recorded and it’s easier to read the shooting data on the viewfinder’s screen.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 Review - Megapixel

Sep 14, 2007 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 yields its best images when the sensitivity is kept as low as possible. Still, the image quality remains acceptable at the full 12 megapixel size up to the 400 ISO level at which point noise starts to become noticeable.

Like many other cameras, the DSC-W200 has both strengths and weaknesses. Its strengths are a good lens; an effective stabilization system; a very well-crafted and very compact size, a huge image resolution and an optical viewfinder.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 Review - Cameras.co.uk

Oct 21, 2006 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 is one of the better pocket sized digital cameras.

On the whole picture quality is very good. I like the design and its ease of use is another attraction. As with other cameras in the Sony range the camera does not come cheap, but at the end of the day you get what you pay for

The Sony DSC T10 is a high quality, pocket sized digital camera. Images are sharp and with well balanced colours photos has a natural look to them. The build quality is of a good standard and the camera has a stylish design. This is one of the best pocket sized digital cameras around. Recommended.
