Sony's W-series cameras are stylish, effective shooters at reasonable prices. The W570's 25mm wide-angle and 5x optical zoom lens is adequate for most uses, while the bloated 16 megapixel sensor will get the job done. We are a bit disappointed that it got rid of the 7x zoom that basically made its predecessor, the W370, a point-and-shoot leader. We'd probably recommend that you look elsewhere for this kind of money ($180), or at least save a few bucks and go with the W560.
