Sony Cyber Shot DSC-V3 Video
This compact prosumer Sony offers amateur photographers a lighter burden, first-rate pictures, and pleasing performance.
For the price, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35 and W55 digital cameras offers very good performance and image quality.
Although the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T5 features improvements over its T7 sibling, as well as much better value, its image quality still doesn't match the camera's other attributes.
Attractive and compact, the Sony Handycam DCR-PC1000 MiniDV camera offers excellent image quality for its class and brings CMOS technology to the world of camcorders. But its overly clever user interface doesn't do its feature set justice.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 is an excellent little camera that doesn't sacrifice features and performance for size.
As long as image softness doesn't bother you, the fast-shooting Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX9 is a quite capable camera for taking photos under a variety of conditions without much effort from the user.
Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-T20 is a stylish, solidly built camera with quick performance and pleasing image quality at lower ISO settings.
Trade-offs abound in Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 megazoom: though it's fast and has some really novel, useful features, it just doesn't deliver the photo quality expected for its class.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 is a very good basic compact megazoom, if not the best value.
Sony's new Cyber Shot DSC-T9 is a beautiful, highly pocketable camera that's fast and easy to use and has good image quality, to boot.
Sony Cyber Shot DSC-V3 Review
The good: Unusually solid high-ISO performance for a non-dSLR; big 2.5-inch LCD; quick overall performance; relatively light and compact.
The bad: Low-ISO photos show some JPEG and edge artifacts; poor raw-format shot-to-shot time; subpar optical viewfinder.
The bottom line: This Sony offers good features and performance in a compact camera for enthusiasts, but its low-ISO image quality doesn't quite match the best in its class.
