Sony DSC-W330 Cyber-shot Review

By Matt Metzker

Review posted 04/08/2010


Pros
Captures great photos, Nice wide 26mm wide angle lens, compatibility with SD/SDHC cards is finally here, iAuto mode will help you take great snapshots, large 3.0-inch LCD is easy to  view, compact and easy to carry, Offers a great entry-level price
Cons
The feel of the camera doesn't live up to its ability, macro mode was frustrating, not sure how the "Easy" setting adds any value to the camera.
Bottom Line
 If your a beginner to the digicam world, this is a good place to start, if you have a budget, this probably fits. Either way, the W330 will help you capture good still pictures. Read our full Conclusion for more details.

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-W330 is a new compact digicam with an economical price tag, but with features that are well worth the investment. The W330 boats a wide (26mm) 4x optical zoom lens mated to a 14-megapixel image, and also offers a "smarter" iAuto exposure system that determines the scene, the lighting, and even faces. It will then adjust the settings for the best pictures possible. Sony's W330 has solid metal construction, but still manages to be light-weight and easy to carry. For those of you who like options, the camera comes in four different colors and has a MSRP of $169.99.
