Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30


Sony W30

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 is stylish in its metal ultra-compact body, and features 6.0MP resolution on a 1/2.5-in. image sensor, 3x optical zoom and a large 2.0-in. LCD monitor.

It has 32MB 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 1MB Memory Stick.

The Sony W30 has an AF-assist lamp to help achieve focus in low-light situations, macro as close as 2 cm (0.8 in.), and easy-to-use scene modes.

Sony W30 Back View

The Cyber-shot W30 is PictBridge compatible, allowing direct printing from the camera to any PictBridge compatible printer.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 is available in an all-silver body and should appeal to photographers looking for an ultra-compact, high resolution, take-anywhere digital camera.

Check out the Sony W50 with an extra-large 2.5-in. LCD monitor for US $20 more.
