Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Superb images made simple
Light, compact and comfortable to carry, the Cyber-shot™ W530 digital camera is your perfect companion for holidays, family get-togethers and more. Superb image quality is teamed with simple, uncluttered operation – even if you’re a first-time digital camera user.

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.

Beautiful portraits made simple
Capture beautiful, smiling portraits of friends and family without fuss. Enhanced Face Detection automatically adjusts camera settings for clear, crisp results with natural skin tones. Smile Shutter fires the shutter automatically when your subject smiles to capture those happy moments.

Better looking pictures made easy
Not sure how to pick the perfect camera settings to suit a particular scene? Don’t 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.

Pack more into every scene
Dramatic landscapes, architectural shots, interiors and even family scenes can produce disappointing results when a scene gets cut off at the edges. A wide angle lens lets you pack more into the picture without having to stand further back from the subject.

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: it’s great if you’re travelling and have a few minutes to drop into the nearest web café.
