>> Hi. I'm Will Greenwald, assistant editor at CNET.com and this is our look at the Sony Cybershot DSC W35 and W55. The W35 and 55 are Sony's low end, budget, snap shot cameras. They're basically point and shoot, 7 mega pixels, very simple. The W35 and the W55 are more or less identical cameras. The W55, which is right here, has a shinier finish and a slightly larger screen, but otherwise they are pretty much the same. Both are 7 mega pixel snap shot cameras with 3X zooms and pretty much the same number of seen presets, automatic shooting, high SM modes, the basics. Even though they don't seem like much on paper, they're actually pretty good snapshot cameras. One of them costs less than 200 bucks and to spite their price they offer fast performance and pretty good images. You're not going to wait a lot of time between photos and there's not much shutter lag and when you finally shoot the images the pictures are going to come out pretty well, low distortion, low noise. They're not perfect, but for the price, they're pretty darn good. Now the 55, it only offers a sleeker finish and a larger screen, but it's only 20 buck more, so if you want the larger screen it's pretty much a judgment call. Otherwise there are the choices for budget snapshot cameras. I'm Will Greenwald and this is the Sony Cybershot DSC W35 and W55. ^M00:01:25 [ Music ]
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 sits on the top of the budget digital camera heap with a shiny new interface, fast performance, and great pictures.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90's quick shooting and generally good picture quality make it a solid choice.
Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-W370 is an inexpensive compact camera with a long lens; however, its shutter lag and low-light photo quality keep it from earning a higher rating.
A 2.5-inch LCD, decent image quality, and both automated and selected manual controls make the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W5 a competent camera for the casual photographer.
The W130's quick performance and decent image quality make it a solid follow-up to the W90, and a good choice for a pocket point-and-shoot camera.
Sony's careful feature trimming results in the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W220: a well-rounded pocket camera for less than $180.
It's not as feature-laden as higher-end models, but the Cyber-shot W120 offers plenty of style and substance for the price.
It's not very flexible, and it's not for low light shots, but the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W50 is still a solid ultracompact camera.
At PMA 2006, we look at two new digital cameras in Sony's Cyber Shot line: the DSC-W70 and the DSC-W100.
A sweet little wide-angle compact, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W350 should make a lot of snapshooters happy.
