Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W100 review: Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W100

A photo shot at ISO 320, 1/125 second--the choice made by the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W100's automatic mode--looks OK when scaled down (top), but at actual size, you can see the artifacts (bottom).

When you toss the DSC-W100's movies into the picture, the camera suddenly looks a lot more appealing. Though you wouldn't want to play its standard-quality VGA captures at 100 percent, they look very good at QVGA (320x240). And its fine-quality movies look quite impressive played at actual size.

Despite being a solid shooter in good light, as well as performing strongly on movie capture, the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W100 can't match the value of less expensive, lower-resolution competitors such as its brother, the DSC-W50, nor can its photos match those of the low-noise Fujifilm FinePix F30 or the Canon PowerShot SD600.
