  • It's a good camera

    By RobinDawn  Feb 15, 2009

    ### I've taken a lot of great shots with this camera. I mainly take macro shots but have been frustrated in taking shots at any distance. If you want to take pictures with no flash in less full daylight, you're going to need a tripod. The video feature i...s great. I've seen some complaints about battery life; I've found the battery to be very long-lived. It's a very good inexpensive camera. Read more Less

  • sony dsc w50

    By D  Dec 30, 2006

    ### Bought as cheapo from a local Sam's $200 mostly because the macro would read from 1-2 cm. Found the sensor is greatly improved from earlier models with less dark field reflection, I take macros of shiny objects. Sensor is made by Sony. Haven't used i...t long enough to tell on long range dependability, but I think it will cover my camera shooting needs for the internet for quite some time. Of course it is still not close to film for distance people photos, but no digital is... Great overall camera! Read more Less

  • Great for what it is

    By Highway75N  Nov 10, 2006

    ### This camera is great. Make sure you are buying a camera for good close up pictures or large landscape pictures. My main beef is how it performs with less than perfect lighting. I took it to a museum where you are not allowed to use flash photography....The ISO feature is great during day-time but sketchy without good lighting. The pictures are grainy and very sensitive to motion and things will be blurry if not given time to focus fully or if you breathe too hard. But all the other functions work GREAT. At that museum I dropped my camera and damaged it, I sent it off for repair and within a week, its on it's way back. I fully recommend the Cybershot DSC-W50. Superb Camera. Read more Less

  • Entry level must buy

    By Mandar S  Mar 16, 2007

    digital image stabilization should have been done in this model too.... tessar vario lense gives good performance. sharper images and vibrant coloours. I would not suggest going for inbuilt software enhancement....try adobe PS instead.
