Sony DSC-W530 Review – Overview
This Sony DSC-W530 is my second Sony Cybershot I have ever had.
I own a Sony Camcorder which also has a good quality. Some people say I am a picky person when it comes to electronic product, but I am really onto Sony products.
I am happy that I purchased this camera, because it hasn’t let me down thus far.
The size is really transportable, it looks like a credit card but a thick one, and it has so much cool features.
I wanted a small-size camera because it tends to get taken anywhere with me. I don’t want to bring any 35-mm cameras, as they can either have wrong film or wrong lens.
The Sony Sony Cyber-Shot model is very light, compact and it takes good quality of pictures, really fun to use.
The build quality is robust with the metal case, and the plastic control buttons as well as buttons feels solid in hand.
The most important, it fits perfectly in my smallest pocket.
Sony DSC-W530 Review – Features and Limitation
The Sony DSC-W530 face recognition performs great when you are at a close range but it does not work so well for big groups at a far-away range.
This happens the same for its smile recognition feature.
When you are in the “Smile Shutter” mode, and your camera recognizes a target smiling, it will take a picture straight away. You do not need to push any buttons or modify any options, this Sony DSC-W530 works great if you want to take self-photos.
The Sony DSC-W530 has the movie mode that offers a bit lacked of videos capability.
It has 4x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom Lens which is about as much as it works, there is no complicated zoom, or noise reduction, and I noticed I had some flaring in my videos.
The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W530 14.1 MP Digital Still Camera with Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 4x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom Lens and 2.7-inch LCD (Black) also has the panoramic mode that provides a new world to landscape photography.
You will be able to set left to the right or up to down, – vice and versa.
I like the aspect ration or the two difference objects that has a few extra options, for instance, I can hold this Sony DSC-W530 vertically, sweeping horizontally to have a cool panoramic photos.
Overall, this Sony DSC-W530 gives terrific quality pictures, but I would say, you don’t have to snap every objects at 14 MP, because you can also choose less pixels pictures.
This will still give you good quality results to view on a TV, or computer and easier to print or will not need so much space on your disk..
The control options are well placed and are very easy to use.
