Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W350 Point & Shoot Digital Camera Pink - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Sony Inc. is one of the most prominent electronic companies in today’s world, there is absolutely no denying that. One of major factors contributing to the success to this corporation is its “class apart” approach, detailing every one of its unit with panache. One such device is Sony CyberShot DSC-W350 which is a superthin compact 14.1 Megpixel Point and shoot device which comes packing along a 4x optically stabilised zoom lens and 2.7 inch display. Indeed, calculating just 90.7mm x 51.5mm x 16.7mm, Sony Cyber-shot W350 is probably one of the smallest cameras from any producer, and will without difficulty slip into any pocket. This is a camera you'll never leave behind on the basis of difficulty in carrying. Beginning from equivalent 26mm, this company has put in its device a good 4x optical zoom range. The device also comes with a satisfactory 2.7 inch screen alongside the capability of HD 720p movie recording, a smart and automatic mode for scene detection, , and of course a well quota of Sony's gadgetry including smile detection and a mode which generates panoramas in-camera with a plain brush of the body. Indeed it's one of the first Sonly CCD-based models to offer the Sweep Panorama function. Well keeping all of this aside, it is quite clear that the strongest export point of this compact is its aim.

Design and Build Quality

To be precise and looking at the exact dimensions of Sony CyberShot DSC W350, the camera measures 90.7mm x 51.5mm x 16.7mm and weighs a good 117 grams. Yes, Sony Cybershot W350 is quite definitely one of the smallest and lightest cameras which is very very comfortable to handle and can slip into tiny pockets with ease. Indeed, it is also smaller than it neck to neck rival Canon IXUS 130 which is a bit bigger is quite about every dimension. But then Sony has opted for a more classier design, and the camera also feels like a smooth bar of soap and lacks the slightly raised lens housing offered by Canon. But then handling the cameras in person to see which looks and feels best to you is the best way recommended for you to buy a compact.

Focus and Face Detection

This device flaunts a good three major focussing options in general use: Multi Autofocus, Centre AF and Spot AF which pick up from nine areas, middle area and an even smaller areas respectively. Note neither Centre AF nor Spot AF modes can be adjusted to consider other areas of the frame. In use the focusing is fairly quick and rarely makes us wait. Coming out as Sony product it is definitely not surprising at all to see that this device comes packing with latest face detection technology of the camera. Alongside the Off and Auto options, Sony CyberShot W350 actually allows a person to choose whether to priortise Adult or Child faces, and remarkably it works too. If face detection is enabled, but no faces are detected, the camera reverts to the nine-area Multi-AF mode.

Lens and Image Stabilization

This Cybershot has a very normal optical zoom lens which delivers an equivalent coverage length of 26-105mm. This then allows Sony Cyber Shot to spread its reach much wider than those looking at 28mm. Canon IXUS 130 however can zoom in even more closer to an equivalent of 112mm compared to 105mm on the Sony. In training they're pretty close although. Wide-angle specialist may find the Sony range preferable, but there's not much in it for everyone else. Both are great ranges to have on such small cameras. Completing Sony Cybershot W350's lens stipulation are a focal ratio of f2.7-5.7 which is somewhat the same as the f2.8-5.9 of the Canon), and a nearby focusing distance of 4cm in macro compared to 3cm on the Canon. Another rather impressive feature of Sony CyberShot W350 is that it is equipped with optical SteadyShot stabilisation to invert the effect of camera shake, but much like the other latest Sony models there is no specific technique as to how to do so, it does not turn off manually This makes the usual before and after conversations impossible. When set to fully automatic, the camera may be able to detect when it's scaled on a tripod (or somewhere equally steady), and mechanically disable stabilisation, but that doesn't help us make a direct judgment here.

Screen and Menus

Almost the entire rear of Sony Cybershot W350 is covered by a 2.7 inch screen with a display resolution of 230,000 dot pixels. It is however a really nice screen for a camera of this size. Once again the specifications clash with Canon IXUS 130, but it's important to look beyond the specifications and compare them in person as there's quite significant differences in use.

Battery

NP-BN1 Lithium Ion battery pack is the powerhouse of this image generating mechanism and fuels up Sony CyberShot W350, Sony claims this to be good for a dcent 240 shots under CIPA conditions roughly the same as Canon IXUS 130. It's not one of Sony's Info Lithium models, so you won't see the exact time remaining; instead there's a four segment indicator.

Video Mode

30 Frames per second, this is the speed at which all the frames are shot which are then encoded into MPEG-4 and AAC audio and wrapped around an MP4 File. 720 Fine unwraps at an average speed of  9Mbit/s while the '720 Standard' mode operates at a reduced rate of 6Mbit/s, leaving the VGA mode to record at 3Mbit/s. Note the VGA mode delivers a cropped view so misses out on the wide angle coverage possible in the HD modes; conversely though, the crop allows it to deliver a tighter field of view.

Sensors

Sony Cybershot W350 is packed along a 14.1 Megapixel CCD sensor which measures 1/2.3in and delivers 4:3 shaped images with a maximum resolution of 4320x3240 pixels. This matches the resolution of the Canon IXUS 130 / SD1400 IS and allows both cameras to make good-looking prints (at 300 dpi) up to 14.4x10.8in

Pros

1. Very slim and light body.

2. 4x stabilised zoom with 26mm wide coverage.

3. Foolproof Auto with scene detection.

4. 720p HD video with zooming while filming.

Cons

1. Optics become soft in corners at wide-angle.

2. Image quality deteriorates at 200 ISO.

3. Screen hard to see at high or low angles.

4. Proprietary connectivity and no HDMI output.
