    So-so photo quality.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    "The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W150 ranks above average on looks and features, but it doesn't quite match up on photo quality."

    Sony CyberShot DSC-W150

    In typical Sony fashion, this is a well built 8.1 megapixel camera with logically laid out controls. The LCD screen is large and bright. And, with high light sensitivity (up to 3200 ISO), the camera is capable of shooting in low or subdued light without a flash - this can be very important for candid shots. It uses the Sony proprietary Memory Stick cards available in sizes from 1GB to 8GB, and that particular storage media is more expensive than others. Without a Memory Stick card inserted, the built in memory is sufficient only for about 5 to 7 images set for 4"x6" format; much less if set for larger image formats. Obviously, internal memory is sufficient for little more than testing the camera, and not a practical arrangement unless you care to download to your PC and clear the camera's tiny internal memory after every few shots. The expense of Memory Stick media can be mitigated significanly by shopping online. For example, a 4GB Memory Stick Pro Duo card may cost $40.00 or so at retail but can be bought for less than half that on eBay if you shop a bit. The 4GB card, as an example, would accommodate hundreds of 4"x6" images and even a 2GB card will suffice for most all common casual shooting purposes. Downloading of images is relatively simple and straightforward. A very good camera overall with a name you can trust.

    100 others are better than this

    I wanted this camera last year since my Nikon Coolpix 4300 was bulky (still takes beautiful pics after 5 years).
    While I liked the slim model that Sony made, nothing else about this camera impressed me nor did I think that it was worth a fraction of what my husband paid.

    I believe in keeping things simple. There are @ 10 different options on this camera for viewing and I tried them all never once getting a CLEAR picture the first shot (and we know that you usually only get ONE chance for that great shot).
    I have tons of pictures that I took and can send showing the poor quality of the pictures. In the best lighting pictures were cloudy and the only time I was able to get a clear picture was in the super, bright sunlight.
    I gave it a good amount of time since i know it's hard to get used to using a new camera but nothing helped and I ended up selling it to an ebay member. My mother in law purchased one around the same time my husband purchased my camera and has since gotten rid of it.
    Stick with Canon and Nikon. Their cameras have never failed me and have always been worth every penny!

    Very good camara!

    The sony DSC-W150 is a very good camara, resolution is great and it has a 5X optical zoom, it also takes video. It doesnt come with USB or similar connection in order to connect it directly to the computer (you need to pull of the memory card), it does come with an AV cord and battery charger (it sucks that you have to pull off the battery in order to charge it). It has many capture options (you can use the flash in all of the though).
    For the price and funtionality i would say its a very good deal, i doubt you will find something better for a lower price (i paid 165 for it).

    Decent P&S, But I Miss My Panasonic!!

    Pros: Good looking, durable, nice screen, it has a viewfinder (rare for a compact camera these days) and the viewfinder is not bad at all (!!), quick shooting & flash recharge times (with high speed card at least), decent low-light performance (probably helps they didn't cram 14 megapixels into the sensor, 8 mp is just about right for most purposes without getting TOO noisy(6mp is probably perfect), ISO 800 produces printable shots in many cases, ISO 80-200 produce sharp pictures (in good lighting)

    Cons: Fatter than other compact cameras (i.e., Canon Powershot SD series, Panasonic FX series, several others), no max ISO setting (like on newer Panasonics), low-light performance not as good as that of Panasonic models I've used (FZ7, FX35) yet better than most Canons I've used (SD630, SD600), noise reduction system a little too aggressive at times, flash is either too bright or too dim (you can change the power level for the flash but it doesn't seem to help - when it's too powerful in normal mode, it's too weak in low output mode), High ISO mode is practically useless unless you absolutely NEED to get a shot - shots are very noisy and details wiped out in this mode, EASY and AUTO modes are TOO automatic and have a hard time analyzing a scene (Panasonic and Canon are MUCH better at analyzing and metering scenes in general), high price (280 bucks for this thing?? i got mine off of ebay for 50 bucks with a minor lens retracting issue, but i would never want to spend even 140 for this)
