Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W190
Released July, 2009
The Pros:Daytime shots are very clear, no grain or noise. Low-light shots are relatively distinct, can pick out a fair amount of detail. Compact design, fits in a jacket pocket or purse easily.
The Cons:Zoom is fairly limited, quickly switches over to digital zoom which degrades the image.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W190 is an automatic point-and-shoot compact digital camera built for users seeking a small and easy-to-use camera to carry in their pocket. As a step-up from the original DSC-W180, the DSC-W190 hosts a more powerful 12.1MP CCD sensor, while maintaining its predecessors’ 3x optical zoom lens and 2.7” LCD screen.

It’s built for convenience, as is evident by its wide-array of intelligent technologies: Smile Shutter & Face Detection; seven Scene Selection modes; in-camera Trimming and Red-Eye correction; and a Picture Motion Browser for the PC that simplifies the process of moving photos/videos to and from the camera. Sitting right beneath the zoom buttons is a sliding switch for automatically switching the camera from shooting, playback, or video mode.
