Sony CyberShot DSC-W1
5.0 megapixels (effective); 3x optical zoom; 4x digital zoom; auto and manual focus; program and manual exposure only; JPEG file format; 2 AA batteries; movie mode with sound
The ultra compact Sony DSC-W1 separates itself from the pack with its huge 2.5" LCD screen. Small enough to slip into a pocket, and powered by two AA batteries, the W1 is perfectly designed for traveling the world or just jetting around town. Though you'll have to be careful to protect the LCD screen from scratches, its size makes it incredibly easy to review pictures and share them with friends. Persistent user complaints about soft/fuzzy images may cause some shoppers to think twice about the W1, however.
