Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100


Mouseover for silver model

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 is the top of the line W Series. It features 8.1MP resolution on a 1/1.8-in. image sensor, 3x optical zoom and an extra large 2.5-in. LCD monitor.

Starting a new trend (hopefully), the Sony W100 has 64MB built-in internal memory, very useful when you suddenly run out of memory space on your Memory Stick media. There is no memory card in the box, and we'd recommend that you consider a 1GB Memory Stick.

The Sony W100 has an AF-assist lamp to help achieve focus in low-light situations, up to 30 sec. shutter speed in manual mode for capturing night shots, and 0.9fps burst mode (3 shots). Macro is as close as 6cm.

The Cyber-shot W100 is PictBridge compatible, allowing direct printing from the camera to any PictBridge compatible printer.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 is available in black or silver bodies and should appeal to photographers looking for a compact, high resolution, take-anywhere digital camera.
