The Sony Cybershot DSC W530 is a simple, snapshot digital camera. It is small enough to slip into most pockets and is available at a relatively low price. It doesn't have a lot of frills. In fact it has a fairly minimal set of features. The important point is it takes a decent snapshot.
I received this camera for my birthday in the middle of November. I like it quite a lot as it is easy to use, and it's a cinch to get the photos uploaded onto my computer. However, you have to be very careful to hold it still or the picture will be blurry. I have had a Nikon Coolpix before, and its photos had better clarity.
Other than clarity issues, this camera is very good. I say it is worth the money.
AT FIRST I BUY THIS CAMERA BECAUSE I URGENTLY NEEDED ONE FOR MY SONS FIRST SCHOOL DAY(PRESCHOLAR)SO I DECIDED TO TRY THIS ONE AND IM NOT DISSAPOINTED FOR THE PRICE IS AN EXCELLENT CAMERA,ITS EASY TO USE,THE ONLY THING I DONT LIKE ITS THAT FOR TAKING VIDEO AT NIGHT ITS USELESS BUT I JUST USE IT FOR TAKING PICTURES SO FOR ME ITS OK.IT TAKES GREAT PICTURES QUALITY DAY AND NIGHT AND VIDEO ITS GOOD IF YOU TAKE IT WITH THE SHINE OF THE DAY.For the price dont expect much.
At first I bought this camera for the simple reason that it was really cheap , but ones I start exploring all the cool features that this camera offers like the 14.1-megapixel, 26mm equivalent lens with 4x optical zoom, Sweep Panorama Mode, 2.7" LCD, iAuto, Smile Shutter and Face Detection, SteadyShot image stabilization, VGA movie capabilities, I just fall in love with it, now it has to be with me anywhere.
For this price perfect machine...Don not have so many specific functions but the picture quality is perfect and also very compact camera smaller than what I have expected.
PROs - the camera takes great pictures, easy to use, lightweight. Time between pictures could be a little faster, but for the money it's acceptable. Enjoy the color selection.
CON's - the battery slide door on the bottom comes open very easily and can be broken off (when opened) if you are not carefull. Does not come with a Memory card, only internal memory, so for the extended picture taking you will need to spend another $20 or so on the memory card.

I'm generally happy with this camera. It suits most of my purposes. Sometimes I like to try some unusual photos. The camera is not outstanding in these situations.
