Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W610
14.1 megapixel CCD sensor; 4X Optical Zoom with 26mm wide-angle; 2.7-inch LCD; 480p video with mono sound; Sweep panorama mode; Lithium-ion battery
The W-series has done really well in the past couple years, blending a diminutive size with stylish brushed-metal body and snappy performance. The W610 is the cheapest of the new cameras, packing a 4x zoom with 26mm wide-angle and 14 megapixel body. It's great for the size, but to be truly competitive we would have liked to see either 720p video or image stabilization included (or both!).
