Sony DSC-W830 overview

  • 1Description

The black DSC-W830 Digital Camera from Sony is a pocket-sized point-and-shoot featuring a 20.1MP, 1/2.3", Super HAD CCD image sensor and BIONZ processor for high-resolution still photos, HD 1280 x 720p video recording at 30 fps, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 3200. The 8x optical zoom, 4.5-36mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, and an aperture range of f/3.3-6.3.

The camera is equipped with a 2.7", 230k-dot Clear Photo LCD monitor providing sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization counteracts camera shake for clear, blur-free shots. Additionally, benefit from Sweep Panorama shooting up to 360°, allowing you to capture an entire landscape in a single shot.

Files are recorded to MS Duo or SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The DSC-W830 is configured with a USB 2.0 port and composite HD and SD outputs. It's powered by the 3.6V, 630mAh NP-BN lithium-ion battery.

20.1MP Super HAD CCD Sensor
The 20.1MP, 1/2.3", Super HAD CCD image sensor with RGB primary color mosaic filters helps you capture sharp pictures with superb contrast, clarity and detail. It works with the BIONZ processor to produce high-resolution still photos, HD 1280 x 720p video recording at 30 fps, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 3200. The high 20.1MP resolution is great for cropping and creating photo-quality prints up to A3+ (13x19") size.
Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens
Effective focal length of 4.5-36mm covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. Shooting still images at a 4:3 aspect ratio, the 35mm-equivalent focal length range is 25-200mm. For movies at 4:3, it's 34-272mm with SteadyShot image stabilization set to Standard mode, and 34-381 with SteadyShot set to Active mode. The equivalent focal length is 28-224mm for 16:9 stills, and 16:9 movies with SteadyShot Standard, or 28-314mm for movies with SteadyShot Active. At the wide end, the aperture is f/3.3, and it can be stopped down to f/6.3.
2.7" LCD Monitor
The 2.7", 230k-pixel Clear Photo LCD monitor provides sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight. It also features a grid display.
Focus Control
Multi-point, center-weighted, spot, tracking and face tracking autofocus / AF modes are available. Face Detection can recognize up to 8 faces and adjust focus, exposure and white balance. It includes automatic, child and adult priority settings. Additionally, benefit from an automatic AF illuminator that can be turned on or off.
Sweep Panorama
Reach beyond the traditional wide-angle lens, and capture more expansive, breathtaking shots with Sweep Panorama mode. Take advantage of up to 360° coverage. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction, and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image.
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization
O.S.S. image stabilization counteracts the effects of camera shake for clear, blur-free shots. The 2-way Active Mode gives you the freedom to shoot movies even while walking or running, and corrects for both vertical and horizontal motion.
Video Recording
Capture MP4 movies in HD 720p resolution at 30 fps. Benefit from full use of optical zoom while recording. Files are small enough to transfer easily to compatible PCs or Mac computers for saving and uploading to photo and video-sharing websites, such as Facebook, Photobucket and YouTube.
Additional Shooting Modes and Advanced Features
Benefit from shooting tips, and count on Intelligent Auto to make the tough decisions for you, choosing the optimal settings for a given scene by recognizing attributes like lighting conditions and faces. This results in clear images, faces with natural skin tones, and reduced blur. Blink detection helps you ensure that you capture everyone in the shot with eyes open, and Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can now be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting. Additionally, there is a self-timer option with 10 sec, 2 sec, portrait 1 and portrait 2 settings.
The Advanced Flash feature allows you to shoot bright, beautifully lit photos by extending the range of the built-in flash.
In-Camera Editing
Enhance your images with built-in effects that adjust skin tone and texture, or even whiten teeth. The D-Range Optimizer function instantaneously analyzes and automatically corrects the captured image data for optimal exposure and tone reproduction, removing portions that are darker than they would appear to the human eye. Standard, plus and off are the available D-range settings. Trimming and Unsharp Masking are also available in the edit menu. Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Beauty Effects allow you to edit skin tones and skin smoothness or remove shine. You can also widen eyes and whiten teeth. Beauty Effects can be combined to further enhance the image.
Erase and protect options offered include single, select, date and folder.
Runs on the 3.6V NP-BN lithium-ion battery, which has a typical capacity of 630mAh and power rating of 2.3Wh, with minimum values of 600mAh and 2.2Wh. In operation, the camera consumes about 1.2W. It also has a Power Save Mode with Standard, Max and off options.

    Sony DSC-W830 reviews

    DSC-W830 Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 103.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does The Job This is an extremely light and compact camera, the one you may want to carry with you at all times. In decent light, it takes better pictures than one might expect from such a small camera (and chip). It takes a while to learn how to do everything through menus as there are few buttons and no touch-screen functions. The panoramic function is just plain fun. It is very noisey in low light. For the price and convenience, it's a bargain. Just don't expect it to perform like your higher end equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little point and shoot! I have been a photographer for many years. I have owned SLRs, mirrorless, advanced point and shoot cameras over the years. I typically take my big camera with me but I have yearned for somethng smaller many times when I am out hiking. The camera phone can only do so much and lugging the SLR around at high altitude can be taxing at tmes. Enter the point and shoot. I wanted something small but with an optical zoom. This camera fills that niche nicely. It takes great photos in good light, is compact and light, and battery life is pretty decent. The only downside to this camera is the low light performance. It is mediocre at best in low light but that is not what I bought it for. For fun outdoor photos in good light it is great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Little Camera This camera is very easy to use and always produces great results. Just point and shoot and you know the pictures will be great. Maybe the reason we are so satisfied is that we are very used to the functions as it is our third Cybershot camera. We still have the original one we bought many years ago and still works perfectly. The new one has much better resolution with 20 megapixels, super powerful zoom and many more features, all great improvements over an excellent product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I have a more complicated camera, but my wife wanted a simpler camera she could carry in her purse. We are very pleased with this one. Take very excellent pictures in low light, and flash is good for this type of camera. It's very thin when the lens pulls back. There are some useful features built in (red eye, smile detection, teeth whitening, etc.) It would be helpful if a paper version of the instructions were included. The on-line version is not convenient. It's a great buy for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little camera Great little camera, no more pick the shutter speed and f-stop. Put it on automatic and it takes a great picture every time. Also great video, the panoramic feature is scary, push the shutter once, pan the camera in the direction you've select, watch the screen as you pan for when to stop, and you have (about) a 180 or 360 degree picture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pocket point and shoot camera!! I use this camera when walking in the desert. I can put it in my pocket and be ready to shoot in just a moment. The resolution is spectacular. The prints I have made are stunning. I will also take this camera to Europe with me this summer. It is light weight, easy to stow away and takes wonderful pictures. What more could I want?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing but Can Be Too Smart The Camera is great overall. It's small size makes it easy to keep on you. The 8x zoom with the 20MP makes it great for getting detailed shots of things far away. Downside was that at times the Smart mode would not let me take a picture since it was trying to figure out what settings to use making me miss a good photo.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features at a good price. I bought this lightweight and small digital camera to replace a 14 year old Pentax model that was state of the art at that time for compact digital cameras. While it has some of the same features, and greater pixel capabilities, it is certainly not the caliber of the former in construction or flexible features such as recharging base, direct AC capabilities, connectivity to A/V, etc. For the lower price, it is sufficient, with well functioning features as advertised. But I am very disappointed the power adaptor included in the box was NOT the U.S. 110 volt version, but instead the European version with an additional cord attachment for 3 pin 220v connection. I had to supply my own power cord instead of direct plugin of the adaptor as designed, and carry an additional power cord with the camera to charge it. Bummer!
