Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Review - DCRP

Oct 04, 2006 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2

While not much of an improvement over its predecessor, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 remains a very good ultra-compact camera, and it earns my recommendation.

It has a nice selection of point-and-shoot features, good photo quality, snappy performance, and a capable movie mode. The DSC-N2 looks just like the Sony DSC-N1 before it, aside from its new champagne gold color. That means that it has a compact metal body, a 3X zoom Zeiss lens, and a huge 3-inch touchscreen LCD. While the touch screen feature is a cool thing to show off to friends, I found that its constant need for cleaning and the clunky touch-based menu system was frustrating.

The LCD’s outdoor visibility was just average, while in low light conditions it was better, as it brightens automatically so you can still see your subject. The N2 lacks an optical viewfinder.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 Review - CNET

Sep 26, 2006 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10

Years after the first Sony T-series hit the market, it’s still impossible to deny the cool factor of these little, silver snapshot cameras.

This time, Sony serves up the 7.2-megapixel Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10, which lands between the 6-megapixel DSC-T9 and the 7.2-megapixel DSC-T30 in the company’s line. The DSC-T10 doesn’t sport the fancy plexiglass back panel or the 3-inch LCD of the T30, but it’s got most of that camera’s other features and a nice looking 2.5-inch LCD of its own.

To keep things interesting, Sony has offered a choice of four colors for the T10: black, pink, silver, and white.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 Review - Imaging Resource

Sep 25, 2006 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10’s 7.2-megapixel CCD delivers plenty of resolution for large prints, and the smattering of Scene modes makes it easy to bring back good-looking photos from what would otherwise be difficult shooting conditions.

The biggest news of course, is the DSC-T10’s Super SteadyShot image stabilization, which we found to be very effective. This will let you get crisp shots even when faced with hand-holding the camera under surprisingly dim lighting (assuming of course, that your subject is stationary as well).

Of course, a tripod is always recommended when things get really dark, but we were very pleasantly surprised to see just how dark it could get, while we were still snapping sharp photos.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K Review - PhotographyBLOG

Sep 19, 2006 | Category: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A100K’s start up time of just over a second, mere 3fps capture, and loud shutter may not be good enough to please the pros, but it’s a performance that’s more than adequate given it’s a DSLR intended for mass market consumption. The steady introduction of Carl Zeiss branded lenses will further cement its claim on the pockets of enthusiasts anyway, and Sony has reportedly invested such a hefty sum in making its DSLR brand successful that failure is not an option.

Arranged marriages can be fraught with problems, but this one appears to be working out. Sony has been careful not to claim all the glory for itself when talking to the press about the A100, hoping that what it has delivered is the best of Sony and Konica Minolta - and that seems true, at this stage.

While in certain respects the product feels compromised by its enforced blend of technologies and, I imagine, rather quick development schedule - what the Sony A100 is, is a very good camera when I believe future generations will hopefully make it great.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Review - Steves Digicams

Aug 16, 2006 | Category: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100

The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W100 is the highest resolution “W” series model we have seen from Sony this year (2006).

This model offers many of the same features we enjoyed on its siblings, like the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens, large 2.5-inch LCD, VGA (640×480) sized movie mode as well as an almost identical durable all metal body. The W100 however, increases resolution to 8-megapixels, and boosts the maximum ISO speed to 1250; one of the highest settings found on a consumer point-n-shoot.

Aiming to please every user, Sony equipped the W100 with various user friendly exposure modes like Auto, High ISO as well as several Scene modes. And your novice and advanced users will appreciate the Program AE mode that offers adjustments to settings like ISO, White balance, Metering, Focus, etc. as well as the full Manual mode that enables the user to set the desired aperture and shutter speed values.
