Some customer reviews of Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W380

Most helpful reviews

Muhammad, Manchester Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Variety of options. Smile detector is interesting and gives you extra smiles. Panorama view is fun - kids enjoy it. Design is sleek.
Bad points:
It is too small in size and you need to be extra careful while handling it. Battery life is not as good as one would imagine it to be. It is inconvenient to charge the battery as it has to be removed from the camera, which cannot be used while the battery being charged.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

W380 Digital compact camera

High performance imaging with Sweep Panorama in a beautiful choice of colours

14.1 megapixels, f/2.4 G Lens with 5x optical zoom/24mm wide angle, HD movie, 6.7cm LCD

Incredible images and advanced features

Slim, stylish camera packed with smart, easy-to-use shooting features. Step up to extraordinary still image and video quality, with advanced optical performance and versatile creative possibilities.

The camera that thinks its a camcorder

Left your camcorder behind? Don’t worry: now you can capture crisp, clear HD movie clips at an incredible 30 frames per second for smooth, clear action. Watch the results on your BRAVIA television: you’ll be amazed by the quality, detail and colour.

Brighter, better pictures

The more light your lens lets into the camera, the better. The top quality G Lens boasts a super-wide f/2.4 maximum aperture. Allowing more light to fall on the cameras sensor, it lets you shoot handheld at twilight or dimly-lit interiors without needing flash. Its wide aperture is also ideal for creating beautiful portraits with a shallow depth of field.

Better looking pictures made easy

Not sure how to pick the perfect camera settings to suit a particular scene? Dont worry, help is at hand. Intelligent Auto (iAUTO) mode automatically adjusts exposure and other camera settings for optimum results in a wide range of shooting situations.

Experience the whole picture

Now it’s easy to grab breathtaking wide-screen views of that landscape or city scene. Sweep Panorama mode shoots a high-speed burst of frames as you sweep the camera from side to side (or up and down!). Images are stitched together automatically by the camera to create one amazing panoramic image.

Upload the moment

Upload those memories to your favourite sharing sites on the web with a few mouse clicks. PMB Portable software inside the camera lets you select and transfer photos and video clips to any web-connected PC: its great if youre travelling and have a few minutes to drop into the nearest web caf.
