Great camera, Reasonable Price

DSCW830 02 October 2014 by EdMac (USA)

Picked up this camera when we accidently left our primary camera at home. Camera has proven to take great pictures and videos. Compact size is a plus - easy to carry in the supplied carrying case. Light weight and buttons are easy to press (even with my big fingers!). Battery life is long (we bought a spare battery but never have had to use it). The battery charging time was short. Wish the USB cord (for charging or pic transfer) was longer. The online manual is ok but would have been nice to have a printed one when we first got it as a quick reference; however, the camera's controls and on-screen menu are fairly intuitive and the learning curve was short. The included 8 gig memory card had plenty of space for all our pics. Wanted a black case but store only had silver - no big deal. My only issue is with the Sony online photo/video editing software. Not very user friendly or intuitive but I'm using other software until I figure it out.

UNFORTUNATELY, DISSAPOINTED

DSCW830 29 September 2014  (USA)

I was very excited when I first got this camera. I set it up right away, took some pics around the house and out at the park to test it out. Seemed to work fine. Couldn't wait to use it on our summer vacation, which was actually why we'd bought it for in the first place. But, when the moment of truth came it was definately not what I expected. Doesn't capture movement any better. Although, it does capture nice pics when you're out in broad daylight. Nonetheless, at someplaces, like at the aquarium the pics came out dark (eventhough the flash was on) and also, very out of focus. I felt it let me down, I was unable to take good-looking pics of the shark tank...that was a real bummer. Another thing about the camera is that when I'm looking at the pics I've taken this message appears on a blue screen "cannot display file" for some pics. Eventhough when I hook it up to the computer all the pics are in fact in the card. I also have to say that I used to have another model of a sony camera and it had a lot of the same issues. I went ahead with Sony once again because I liked to believe it's a brand I could trust. It's all very dissappointing

Classic

DSCW830 12 June 2019 by CKS75 (USA)

Sony's Cybershot range of cameras are a staple of reliable, simple and easy to use cameras that get the job done. They also do this in a compact manner (compared to its competitors) and the classsic styling make them age well. Overall a very good point-and-shoot camera that will last for years.

I like it

DSC-W830 10 June 2019 by pingpong2019 (United Kingdom)

After years of using DSLR cameras I wanted something lightweight and compact for everyday use. It is easy to use and very lightweight compared to my heavy gear. I haven't had chance to use all the features yet but point and shoot is great.

Feels well built, good points and bad.

DSC-W830 29 May 2019 by Gingerbond (United Kingdom)

Good - Build quality, colour, picture quality, ease of use, quick battery charge. Bad - Start-up time is quite slow. Quite slow to focus in reduced light.

Good and Bad in Parts, like the Curate's Egg.

DSC-W830 29 May 2019 by CHLTN2 (United Kingdom)

On the whole its alright. The disadvantage is that the macro close up focus which is meant to be automatic, doesn't give sharp focus. I like its small compact size.

Super Easy to Use!

DSCW830 26 May 2019 by rooR (USA)

I am a beginner, yet have found this camera incredibly easy to operate. Already I am taking all kinds of pictures and am quickly learning how to use all the different features--everything is explained. And it's so compact and lightweight that I can carry it everywhere and spontaneously capture an image in a moments 'flash'. The zoom really zooms, and some of the close-ups ('some' because I, myself, am not as accurate as the camera) are amazingly detailed. The experience of using this camera is so much better than using a phone camera. I tried out other camera brands and chose this Sony. I'm so glad I did!

Survived One Of Worst Places -

DSCW830B 25 May 2019 by Lindell (USA)

Spent 16 days in The Amazon Jungle Rainforest, and The Very Hot Galapagos Islands. The Amazon is "Nasty", the hottest, most humid, rains constantly. I thought the camera would "conked-out". It didn't, worked just fine - but I almost didn't.

Great little camera

DSC-W830 05 May 2019 by blister (United Kingdom)

I bought this to replace a 12 year old Sony camera that was worn out and it is better than the last one which was pretty good. To date the camera the camera is performing well and is producing sharp clear photos. Only gripe is that there is a bit of a lapse when the screen goes blank between pressing the button and the camera being ready for the next shot. But that be my unfamiliarity with all the settings. I've long been an admirer of Sony having bought a nine inch portable television in 1971. Sony went to the moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin don't ya know. Tht's a pretty good recommendation

Camera is amazing

DSC-W830 24 April 2019 by Luke (United Kingdom)

For a such a cheap camera, i was surprised at how good the picture quality is, the small lcd screen doesn't do the pictures justice. Looks all pixelated as you're looking around with the camera, but the quality of the pictures is flawless

A nice camera

DSC-W830 19 April 2019 by Cart (Australia)

I got this camera on Christmas in 2017 and ever since then I've taken countless photos. It's got plenty of functions built in and fits nicely in a pocket or case because it's so small. The only thing that could be improved is the picture quality but otherwise it's great!
