Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W530 Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Available in a very bright and colorful palate - silver, black, pink, green, or blue Sony Cybershot DSC W530  is a good on the budget camera. The camera is a 14.1 megapixel camera with a Sony SuperHAD CCD image sensor, a Carl Zeiss Cario- Tessar 4x zoom lens. It has perky features like Face detection, Anti blink function, and smile shutter. Other than that the camera has in in-built flash whose range is stated as 0.3 to 3.5 meters at wide angle, a feature namely Natural flash that takes a shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color for lifelike images. Other typical features include Self-Portrait timer and even ‘Easy shooting’ mode for amateurs especially. Further fancy features like In-camera retouching tools and Dynamic range optimizer standard and plus, that is used to recover shadows and highlights, making the camera a bit more appellative. Also records video at 480p AVI, computer compatible mode. Has an ISO up to 3200 and also consists of iSCN (Intelligent scene recognition). Over all the camera is a mixture of both smarts and looks and if you have a slim budget and want a camera that does your work, this is your bet.

 

Design and Build Quality

As a point and shoot camera should be, Sony Cybershot DSC W530 is light, so light that it merely weighs 113 grams. It has an all metal body. In front it comprises of its Carl Zeiss Cario-Tessar branded 4x optical zoom lens and an in built flash right on the lens top. On it’s back you will spot it’s 2.7 inch clear screen that takes most of the rear’s space. On the right panel you will find buttons to perform all the needed function. However the on/off button has a place right side top of the camera, which is an instinctive placement. The camera is supremely sleek and slim with dimension 92.9 (W) x 52.4 (H) x 19.3 (D) mm. Making it an easy to ‘carry anywhere’ camera.

Focus and Face Detection

Sony Cyber shot DSC-W530 comprises of a 9 point autofocus system and also has a face detection system. This face detection system is capable of perceiving as many as eight faces in a single screen. Not only that , it also adjusts focus, exposure and while balance while detecting the faces, so to give you frosty and appropriately lit pictures of people you please. The face detection function moreover provides a Smile Shutter function that spontaneously prompts the shutter when your subject is smiling. There's no blink detection feature in the camera sadly but caters three methods for determining exposures - multi-pattern, center-weighted or spot metering.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W530 presents a Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar branded 4X optical zoom lens. The camera gives you a 35-equivalent range from a pretty decent 36 mm wide angle to an effective 105 mm so as to shoot 4:3 aspect ratios. Meanwhile 16:9 shooting yields a sensor crop and a 28 – 114 mm correspondent focal range. The lens has ND filter with a 2 step aperture, which presents either one: F2.7 or F8.0 at wide angle; the maximum aperture at telephoto is F5.7 however the minimum aperture is not specified. The lens does brings distant subjects closer for video recording as well as for outdoor, travel, sports and party photos. More, Close Focus shoots close ups to a ½” of the object. The wide angle of 26mm equivalent wide-angle lens eventually also gives you room to take wider shots of scenes or group in crowded spaces. For Image Stabilization Sony Cyber Shot DSC W530’s Steady Shot makes up for camera willies and helps counter shakiness through the use of digital processing technologies.

Screen and Menus

As mentioned in this review before, the camera’s rear panel consists of a 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD panel with a very generous resolution of 230,400 dots. This serves as the only method of previewing and framing images given that sadly, the Sony W530 doesn't feature an optical or electronic viewfinder. This screen shows sharp and natural colors that make it easy to compose shots, read through menus and even go through already taken shots, even in decent broad day light. The menu and its options are simple to preview and use for any amateur. The camera features directly features like face detection, red eye and noise reduction as well as features that represent the Battery left i.e. Battery Remaining Indicator and also Exposure Warning Indicator.

Battery


This one uses lithium ion battery that can take up to 250 shots and record video to up to 250 minute long in a single charge. The storage space can be extended depending on your will, all you need is an SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards.
 

Video Mode

The camera is also capable of shooting videos at 640 x 480 pixels. This is in 480p AVI movie mode at 30 frames per second, which is standard format when one works with a PC. The 4x zoom is available in video making, so one can experience distant objects at near and clear view. The movie since being in small files will transfer easily to a compatible PC or Mac computer. And if connected to the internet, can be uploaded effortlessly

Sensors

This beautiful camera, Sony Cyber Shot DSC W530 is built about a 1 / 2.3 inch type with a 14.1 effectual megapixel Sony SuperHAD CCD image sensor, alongside a RGB color filter array.This powerful 14.1 megapixel sensor aids you and comforts you with its gorgeous capturing ability, such with bright contrast and lucidity, down to the optimum detail. With 14.1 megapixels, you can create beautiful, photo quality prints up to A3+ size and/or crop your own images and still be able to see some good high resolution shots.

 

Pros

The camera is made to be in a range to make your pockets smile, so fulfilling its purpose as a compact point and shoot camera. It is cheap and carries some very decent features. The prominent and the very first feature you get to notice is how light the camera is. It is portable, and can be carried anywhere without being a bulk or disturbance to you.
 

Cons

The body can be uncomfortable to handle, as it gives a creaky feel. Apart from that two major things set this camera a bit back, one is poor image quality and second a bad shutter button.
