Stephen, Central Scotland Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is my first digital camera so i can not compare it to another model. I am delighted with this little camera which is very easy to use and also very stylish looking. Makes very good quality photos.
.
Bad points:
I have not experienced any real bad points with this camera. However you must buy a memory card and i advise buying a protective case. Without a memory card the camera will only store about 10 photos.

Mike, Newcastle-under-Lyme Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Exellent picture quality for such a small camera due to it's 12.1 Megapixel sensor.
Small enough to slip into pocket or handbag.
Large 3 inch monitor, easy to see and compose shot.
Bad points:
Shutter button a bit to "Soft" for halfway press focusing making it too easy to full press by mistake resulting in out of focus shots.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Stylish meets powerful.

This W Series Cyber-shot digital camera features a 12.1MP image sensor, a Carl Zeiss® 4x optical zoom wide lens (30mm) to capture sharp images, and a 3.0" LCD for showing them off to your friends.

Go beyond auto mode.

Let the camera do the thinking for you. This camera comes with Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization and High ISO sensitivity to help compensate for shaky hands, minimize blur, and allows flash-free shooting to preserve the mood. Also, by simply activating iSCN and Face Detection, it’s easy to take advantage of all the technologies without leaving Auto mode. Whether you are in low light situations or back light situations, the W230 helps you to get the best shot.

Take better people pictures.

Face Detection technology detects up to eight faces and controls flash, focus, exposure and white balance to deliver natural skin tones with reduced red-eye while Smile Shutterª technology allows you to capture a smile the moment it happens.

Great pictures regardless of the condition.

Eliminate the guesswork of choosing the right camera setting by using the Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) which automatically detects one of five scenes and selects the appropriate camera setting for optimal results. You can also manually choose between 11 different modes if you have another scene need.
