SonySony Cybershot DSC-W170 review : The Sony DSC-W170 is equipped with a 10 Megapixels CCD sensor, making it one of the highest resolution W-cameras. This keeps Sony at pace with the rest of the manufacturers that have dived into the continuing Megapixel race. For those keen on figures; the following comparison with a 10 Megapixel Sony Alpha might be of interest to you. Pro ratio, there are approximately 35 million pixels on one square cm of the W170's sensor, whereas the Sony Alpha 300 has 2.7 million pixels. Both cameras offer 10 Megapixels of image resolution.

Sony DSC-W170 review
On top of the Sony camera it is quiet, extremely quiet. There are just the on/off button and the shutter release button ready for operation. The bottom of the camera shows a USB interface and off-centre, a universal tripod mount. The compartment for the Li-Ion battery and the memory card is positioned right next to it, making it impossible to change either one of them when the camera is mounted on a tripod. Naturally, the Sony DSC-170 supports Memory Stick Duo memory cards.

Sony Cybershot digital camera with 5x optical zoom
The Sony DSC-W170 digital camera is equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens with a focal length of 28-140mm. Good for Sony to equip the camera with a wide angle zoom. At maximum aperture of f/3.3 the edges and the centre offer a fine sharpness. The same result is obtained up to and including 55mm with sharpness preserved. In telephoto range, the performance of the small lens becomes a lot less. Slightly blurred in the centre and visible blur towards the edges, a pity. Distortion is only visible in wide angle, the other focal lengths hardly show visible distortion, if any at all.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W170 review
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-170 is a handy and compactly built camera with a straightforward operation. The convenient automatic functions demonstrate the ongoing substantial automation. The camera is becoming more and more intelligent, and is able to recognize situations and act accordingly. One person will hate it, and will want to be in control, while another person will love it. If you really want to shoot in a creative way, you will have to look for the more advanced models of the Cyber-shot series. For snapshots, the Sony W170 is the designated model.
