    Average “budget” camera, May 21, 2014
    MyKeyReviews (Hampshire, UK.) –

    This review is from: Sony DSCW830 20.1 MP Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD (Silver) (Electronics)

    ♦ Brief ♦

    The W830 is within Sony’s “budget” range of compact cameras and is available for a fairly low price, but sacrifices a lot of extra features the more “premium” cameras have, such as WiFi, NFC, extra zoom and better components etc…

    This camera comes in our different colours (black, silver, purple or pink) and is so compact, it can fit into the palm of my hand. It’s also very comfortable camera to hold and is very light in weight.

    Photo quality is okay, it can take some pretty decent photos but due to its small sensor, quality is going to be limited.

    ♦ Box Contents & Recommended Extras ♦

    – Box Contents: W830 Digital Camera | Battery | USB Cable | AC Adaptor | Power Cable | Wrist Strap | Instruction Manual.

    – Recommended Extras: SDHC Memory Card* | Spare Battery.

    * There’s no flash memory(well, enough to take 4 photos), so getting one of these are a must! (You can go for any brand you want, however I would recommend a memory card with no less than 8GB memory capacity & of class 10).

    ♦ Ease of Use & Navigation ♦

    Personally, I found the camera really easy to navigate around, both externally and internally.

    There aren’t too many buttons located around the camera like you would find on the more advanced cameras.

    To select which shooting mode you want (photo, panoramic or filming), there is a little slider on the back that allows you to switch between each one.

    When it comes to different modes within the cameras software, just click the menu button and scroll through. You have four different modes to choose from:

    Intelligent Auto: “Exposure adjustment with automatic settings”.

    Program Auto: “Auto exposure with adjustable settings”.

    Picture Effect: Choose between the “Toy Camera”, “Pop Colour”, “Partial Colour” or “Soft High-Key” effects.

    Scene Selection: 11 different pre-set modes to choose from that will adjust the settings for different scenes, such as “Portrait”, “Landscape”, “Night Scene”, “Beach” & “Snow”.

    Compared to how other cameras handle taking panoramic photos, Sony’s cameras makes it really easy to take such photos, you literally press the shutter button and sweep the camera from left to right, which it then stitches them all together for you.

    Movie mode there are only two settings to select from; “Auto” & “Picture Effect”.

    ♦ Photo & Video Quality ♦

    A higher mega-pixel count in a camera does not mean it’s going to have better photo quality compare to a camera that has less mega-pixels, there’s more to it; sensor size, lens quality & the imaging processor etc… The more mega-pixels there are, means the larger prints you can get without the loss of image quality, but if you don’t have a decent photo then you’re just left with having an oversized photo that takes up more space on your memory card (Roughly 7.5MB per photo!).

    Baring in mind this camera is more towards the budget range, the quality isn’t going to be crisp, and unfortunately after dealing with some higher-end cameras, it’s made me notice the poorer quality much more than what I would have done so beforehand.

    So photo quality results I’ve had whilst using this camera have been a mixed bag, many shots taken have looked pretty sharp, clear and genuinely really good, whereas other times not so much with photos looking blurred and a bit grainy.

    This camera performs well outdoors in decent lighting; landscapes, portrait or taking photos of flowers came out really well in my opinion, only rarely would I have a random problem with exposure.

    With the zoom, I had a lot of issues regarding to the focus, on the camera screen I wouldn’t think twice, but it’s when I have the images on my computer, I notice the images are actually blurred… Ooops, too late for retakes!

    Low-lighting conditions are a hit or miss with this camera, most photos come out okay, it’s only when you start zooming into the photos you’ll notice the slight noise that comes with the photo, other times the noise can be apparent straight away, along with the photo not being as sharp as it could.

    Panoramic images looked great with the image zoomed out to fill the screen on my laptop, but when you zoom in you can tell the quality isn’t quite there.

    Using the 720p setting when filming videos were okay, nothing special but is at a level where it’s good for home videos etc… That’s about it.

    If there is one thing I could say that really bothered…

    grhphotos Lov’s this camera,, April 20, 2014

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I’m a professional photographer an I owned two additional Sony cameras (DSLR-350 & 100) and my DSC830 performs as well or sometimes better than my larger cameras. It’s lighter to carry and much smaller so I can take with me all the time to capture current events and incidents I see in my daily travels. My enlargements from my DSC830 are just as clear as professional as if they come from my larger cameras.
    Thank you Sony

    Not as great as I hoped, March 23, 2014

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I recently bought the Sony DSCW830 as an upgrade from my Sony DSCWX9. My former camera seemed to be having trouble focusing, a lot of pictures were turning out blurry no matter what I did, but it had been a really great camera with lots of cool and helpful features, the panorama feature (about 180 degrees) was awesome, and at 16.2 megapixels the resolution had been top of the line when I bought it.
    This one, the DSCW830, I thought would be even better. From the summary it seemed to have the same special features, an 8x zoom instead of “just” 5x zoom, and it had better resolution at 20.1 megapixels. Also, the panorama was described as 360 degrees, which I took to mean literally 360 degrees all in one shot.
    Sadly, even though it’s only been a few days since it arrived, I don’t like it nearly as much as the first one I had. You have to hold the camera perfectly still or the shot will be blurry. The only way I’ve been able to get it to take a clear picture is if I set it on a hard surface and push the button, not holding it at all. The panorama feature is not 360 degrees all in one shot – it’s 180, like my old one. The menu has fewer features and effects (soft skin, soft background, landscape, night portrait, night scene, low light, gourmet, pets, waterside, snow scene, and fireworks, while my previous camera also had backlight correction, anti-blur, twilight, white balance, metering mode, and face detection). The new DSCW830 is also smaller overall, and even with my small hands I find it harder to handle with the difference in size.
    If you’ve never had a really nice camera before, this would probably seem like awesome camera to have, and the simple menu features and ease of use probably makes it a good one to start with. However, I’m going to give the new DSCW830 to my kids to use, and continue using my old DSCWX9 instead. In my case, the DSCW830 just isn’t an improvement in any way except more megapixels.
