What customers say about "Imaging"
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD (Black)
  • Great features and image quality for a small pocket camera, that is inexpensive.
  • This is a great camera for taking pictures of kids and events. Images are crisp and color is vibrant.
  • This is a nice little camera. I just needed a small camera that is easy to use. It even has image stabilization.
  • However, I sometimes get very blurry images. There is a long lag between pushing the shutter and the photo actually showing up. It is not instant.
  • Good camera. Will be great if it have improved image sterilization
  • Very slow in locking the focus and taking the picture
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 Digital Camera
  • Lots of ways to adjust the camera's settings including the ISO speed.
  • You can use it in easy "auto" mode or adjust ISO levels and color balance.
  • Aperture speed is fast enough. It takes good pictures. It has a good battery life.
  • Great little pocket camera with a decent zoom capability.
  • I tried various camera modes and ISO settings but the pictures didn't improve.

What customers say about "Display"
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD (Black)
  • Size of screen was decent but wasn't satisfied with picture quality
  • The screen image is better than most in this price range, with a faster frame rate.
  • Camera is easy to use and has a nice size viewing screen.
  • The screen is fuzzy, almost as if it is working on 1 mega pixel
  • Would recommend. Have a little difficultty seeing screen in bright sunlight
  • Camera takes nice pictures and easy to use. Just wish it had a larger view screen.

  • You can see the individual fibers in the fabric at the highest resolution, the weaving of the fabric!
  • High resolution with plenty of storage options.
  • The display is pretty low resolution and made me wonder what the quality of the pictures truly were.
  • Picture quality is great! Only thing bothered me is the really bad display!
  • The quality on the display screen is difficult to tell, though.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD (Black)
  • Camera has many easy to use features. Easy to switch modes a.so
  • Using in video mode drains the battery super fast. Other than that it performs wonderfully.
  • Non-expensive device but good pictures and some good functions, easy mode is good for non-expert person
  • Auto mode worked well allowing for spontaneous shots.
  • There are many different modes to select for excellent capturing.Not heavy and easy to take anywhere.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 Digital Camera
  • It seems perfect for landscape and portraits.
  • Perhaps it is my own fault, since keeping the camera in continuous shooting mode disables the flash, but indoor pictures at night were a complete no-go.
  • long delay between ability to take shots. I don't expect to be able to shoot in a burst mode, but it should allow for maybe two shots every 5 seconds instead of 10 seconds.
  • Tried to adjust white balance and exposure settings on the camera and nothing works. One in every ten pictures comes out decent.
  • Not the end of the world, except that when it gets the white balance wrong, it generally misses the exposure and/or the focus too.
  • It has a continuous shooting mode which is supposed to take multiple frames in a short time as long as the shutter button is depressed.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD (Black)
  • Great camera that takes great pictures. The only ding on it, is that it takes a special USB cable to plug it into a computer. A standard Micro USB cable will not work.
  • Also a great perk to this camera is that it comes with a rechargeable cord and also doubles as a USB to plug into your computer!! Takes great pics as well!!
  • I like the USB battery charge, but you can't use it when the battery is low or dead.
  • One issue...we were mistakenly led to believe this camera was wi-fi equipped for uploading. It is not. They do provide an easy to use upload s/w tool that worked fine with a USB connection.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 Digital Camera
  • Simple enough interface and very easy connecting it to my computer.
  • Battery recharges quickly after you connect the camera to an outlet but I bought a spare battery for no disappointing surprises.
  • Photos can be accessed either by using the memory card or connecting the camera to the PC via a USB port.
  • Connects to laptop and imports pictures with ease. So small it easily fits in a pocket or purse.
  • It can easily handle a 16 GB memory card, and it also automatically connects to the computer for uploading pictures. It was also very reasonably priced.
