Sony CyberShot W100

We've given the W100 a grade of C.

Editor's Review

Sony's W100 gives users point-and-shoot simplicity with a massive 8.1 megapixel sensor, allowing for superb prints. The W100 offers a new function guide to better convey the use and purpose of the various modes with simple text explanations displayed on the large 2.5 inch LCD screen. The resolution guide helps users decide what resolution is best for making digital prints, with a handy pop up screen telling you what the ideal print size is for your particular setting. Manual controls give the W100 lasting potential for growing users who want to graduate from the camera's auto functions. With all these helping hints, the W100 does what it can to ensure perfect pictures.

Poor Sony Support (Tom Dev — 04/09/2009)

I bought the W100 in 2007. It lasted one month before the screen broke. Sony refused to honor the warranty and repair then was $180. The repair company lost the camera and after 6 months of haggle and BBB, I got my money back and bought a beautiful point and shoot Canon. I recommend Camera. No more Sony anything for me.

good pictures temporarily (donald dornisch — 09/22/2007)

Worked fine for about 1 year...maybe 200 pics. Big screen on back went bad and Sony wants $191 to fix it. Think about Sony "quality"

Wow, really expected more (bj — 09/12/2007)

Bought this camera for a pocket point and shoot. Pictures were fantastic, but after 20 pictures it would no longer work. Gave an error to turn the camera off and turn it back on. Googled the problem and found that the lense constantly has problems. Returned to the store and while in line returning mine the lady in front of me was returning the same camera with a screen problem. She had also owned the camera for less than a week. Really disappointed with this camera.

Precious One! (Alex — 05/04/2007)

No questions about image quality.....which I appreciated much.Another feature which triggers my total satisfaction is,a user-friendly camera.Its designers are great! Probably, they anticipated the many ill-feelings of beginners on "very high-tech"ones.

Great for anything but closeups (Tom Wrigh — 02/10/2007)

I never owned a digital camera before. This one has a great feel, and for anything other than extreme close-ups, it's perfect. I specifically bought it (salesman told me it was the one for closeups!) for taking pictures of specimens at extreme closeup range, and you can't get close enough to take really clear pictures at close range, and the macro depth of field makes the picture come out VERY flat. For anything else though, I actually love the quality feel of this little workhorse.

Sony DSC-W100 Review (Lisa — 02/08/2007)

This is my first digital camera that I bought, and in the overall cost, this is a camera worth its price. The only thing i dislike about this camera, is that I can't take rapid shots. But overall, its a great camera with great features. The battery life is long and its easy to function. Quality is great.

Sony DSC W100 (Ed A. — 10/15/2006)

I love this camera! It has a great battery life. Its compact and small enough to carry in your pocket. I got a great price for it shopping online, new also! I was thinking about getting the T-Series Sony has(T-10), but they were too pricey and I think too small for my hands. This camera is the perfect size! It has a 64MB internal card (I suggest getting at least a 512MB duo card). I like the exterior looks and feel of the camera. Great quality pictures at 8.1 MB. All in all, a recommended camera! A+

Great camera! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I'm absolutely amazed by the color accuracy and ease of use in this little camera. I have several "Professional" digitals and this little thing rivals them in quality. Great camera, excellent price.

Solid Camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is my second Sony I have a H1 that I love. The W100 is a solid camera that can be put right in your pocket. I use it for crime scenes along with my Canon 20D and can take it to my sons baseball game. The Sony is an excellent point n shoot camera with a very long battery life. The ISO is excellent for low light shooting. My only complaint is the battery door which is a poor design. I hope Sony also comes up with cool accessories.
