Sony DSC-W800 Overview

  • 1Description

The lightweight, black Sony DSC-W800 Digital Camera is a compact point and shoot that features 20.1 megapixels inside the 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD sensor, and has a professional Sony 5x optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 26-130mm. A bright 2.7" Clear Photo LCD 230k-dot monitor at the back allows you to clearly view your photos and high-quality 720p HD videos.

For more zoom, a 10x digital zoom function doubles the camera's reach and Sony's SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active mode compensates for camera shake to help provide clearer images with minimal blur and low noise, even while you stroll around. For shooting at an even wider angle, try the 360˚ Sweep Panorama, which allows you to press the shutter button and sweep your camera around to gather in your entire landscape and take many high-resolution images and automatically combine them into one photograph.

Taking pictures has never been easier. Use the camera's Easy Mode for simplifying your menu and the camera's internal guide to answer all your questions without carrying around the instruction manual. To avoid missing those smiling faces in your shots, simply turn on the Smile Shutter Technology, which takes a picture whenever a smile is detected, based on your preferences. For convenient charging, USB charging is available with the camera allowing you to charge your device right from your computer.

20.1 MP 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD Sensor
The 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD sensor features 20.1 megapixels, providing you with high-quality, high-resolution images with considerable contrast and clarity of detail.
Optical 5x Zoom 26-130mm Lens & 10x Digital Zoom
The Sony 4.6-23mm f/3.2-6.4 lens has an optical 5x zoom and features an equivalent 35mm focal length of 26-130mm, which provides you with a convenient wide angle to telephoto range. For shooting at long distances, a 10x digital zoom option maintains a high-quality image while effectively doubling your focal length.
SteadyShot Image Stabilization Reduces Blur
Shoot smooth video and photos with SteadyShot Image Stabilization, which reduces blur and helps deliver sharp detail even when you take pictures while walking.
2.7" Clear Photo LCD 230k-Dot Monitor
A bright 2.7" 230k-dot Clear Photo LCD monitor allows you 5 stops of brightness control for viewing your images in all sorts of lighting conditions such as outside in the sun or indoors at night and features a grid display for when you need extra help in composing your photos.
720p HD Movie Mode
Shoot 1280 x 720 high definition movies at 30fps to create high quality videos with full use of optical zoom in 29 minute segments. After transferring the videos to your computer, use the internet to upload them to your favorite social media website.
360˚ Sweep Panorama
To achieve an even wider angle, simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera around while the camera continuously shoots at a high speed to deliver a seamlessly stitched and high-quality panoramic image. Use it to capture wide landscapes, or go full circle with up to a 360˚ panorama for more creative images.
Smile Shutter Technology
Automatically capture smiles the moment they happen. Simply press the Smile Shutter button to turn on the feature and leave the rest to the camera. You can indicate the degree of smile detection sensitivity and even choose adult or child smile priority. When Intelligent Auto is on, you can use the Smile Shutter mode with Intelligent Scene Recognition to capture smiles with settings optimized for that particular scene such as during difficult shooting conditions with twilight and backlighting.
Creative Shooting with Picture Effects
Bring ordinary landscapes and portraits to life, by heightening the mood and enhancing certain attributes with Picture Effects. A variety of creative options include four modes for your still images, four modes for movies, and three more modes for applying towards your panoramic shots.
Simplify the Camera Menu with Easy Mode
When shooting in Easy Mode the menu is simplified by eliminating various extra layers and making your shooting experience easier and more enjoyable. Should you want more detailed options for your shot, simply turn off the feature, and return to the normal menu.
In-Camera Guide Helps Navigate Features
The W800 features an in-camera instruction guide allowing you to search the camera's functions according to your needs at the moment. No need to carry a separate manual around, just go to the guide and find the answer you are looking for right in your camera.
Convenient USB Charging for Battery
To charge your battery on the go, simply connect your camera via the USB port on your computer and/or a power supply for a quick and convenient charging option.

    Sony DSC-W800 Reviews

    Cyber-shot DSC-W800 Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 83.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Camera So I purchased 11 of these little gems for a project in Zambia called PhotoVoice. These will be used by the participants of the project and given to them at its conclusion. I'm a pro/am photographer using a Nikon D7200 (see Hanleys Lens). I ran through some test shots with the Sony cyber shot and I was very pleased with both the image quality and ease of use. We are using a Canon P110 for our printing and was pleasantly surprised at both the 5x7 and A4 prints we made. One can go deep into the menus and explore the versatility of this rather inexpensive camera...20 megapixels and all. The long and short of it all, this is a good alternative to a cellphone camera and a beyond basic entry level point and shoot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good value I bought this camera for my 89 year old father to take on a cruise. He has never owned a digital camera before, so I wanted something that isn't expensive, takes decent pictures, fits in a shirt pocket and is very easy to use. This camera meets all those criteria. He just got back with lots of pictures. He had no problems figuring out how to use it and the picture quality is surprisingly good considering the price. Exactly what I was looking for. If there were an Exposure Comp button or some way to change it without diving into the menus, I would have given it 5 stars. A very good value for a simple point and shoot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Directions lacking I found it hard to follow the set up procedure. Menu has to be pressed at certain times to accept the data and used in combination with ok button.Gave instructions to go on line to which is probably not a sony site and did not load properly. Pictures go to where my old Kodak went but can not find how to delete at the same time. Have to do deletion trough the camera. Just confusing and I am not sure how to make pictures arrive in a different folder for each up load. So far all uploads for one day went into the same folder. Hope I can gradually get this camera to do the job I want it to.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied From taking too many blurred pictures to not good enough zoom, overall there was too many pics being deleted Too much time between taking a pic and viewing it and/ or being able to take the next picture. Missed shots awaiting those follow up shots. Also the pic taking button not being pressed hard enough meant that picture desired wasn't successful Same with the start button had to be pressed.lomg enough . For a good company like Sony, O am surprised by the camera, and unfortunately not in a good way I advise for others not purchase this camera but I would look into other Sony cameras. For me, O would NOT buy this camera knowing what I do moe

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Value lacking image quality I use this as a play around back up camera. It's been a long time since I got a sub hundred dollar point and shoot. It has the full easy auto mode but surprisingly, it has a program mode, as well as manual ISO, white balance, and exposure compensation. Much like the stuff you get in more sophisticated cameras. It allows me to reduce exposure for bright skies, and makes shooting in daylight more customizable. Also, the panorama mode is a lot of fun. The battery last a long time if not used, and it recharges in about 2.5 hours. This camera has a lot of customizations. The downers are: poor image quality compared to my older cheap point and shoots I had in the past. Even with ideal lighting conditions at its highest resolution and lowest ISO, the images show noise and smearing when zoomed in. However, the images can be touched up in post processing. For example, below are 2 images shot at Dante's View in Death Valley, the first is a panorama straight out of the camera. The second is a 9 shot stitched panorama that was touched up in lightroom 5 and stiched in a Microsoft panorama editor. The image out of the camera was about 8mp, the multi image panorama was 180mp after processing and stitched. Thus, with some post processing resolution and image quality can be enhanced. Nevertheless, this little camera is fun to use, for stuff like web posting, cat pics, and personal stuff. And it's a decent value. However, this is not a camera that I would depend on for travel or serious photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Light Weight I needed a pint and shoot camera to replace one that I had carried with me at all times for more than 4 years. I needed a small, lightweight camera for documenting my environment, construction worksites and activities of some special interest clubs to which I belong. I have a high end DSLR so this camera was a backup and an event shooter. Many people use cell phone cameras for this purpose but I wanted a higher quality image and more flexibility for composing and making shots. The Sony Cyber-shot has proved to be the ideal solution for me. It produces highly usable images in a range of conditions and at an affordable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good camera Pros. 1) Light weight, 2) Durable metal surface, 3) Easy to use (I bought it for my 10y old son) 4) Tracking focus is fun. 5) USB charger. 6) Good picture quality. Cons. 1) A little slow focusing. 2) Battery life is a bit short. Very good camera at this price. BTW, the size at Sony USA and B&H is incorrect. It is 96.8mm x 55.5mm x 20.8mm (W x H x D), so 3.8inch x 2.2inch x 0.82inch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, simple camera I wanted a camera that was simple to use, but still takes a great picture and this camera was just what I was looking for. I used it for my recent trip to Aruba and all of the pictures came out great! The battery also lasted extremely long--it was a 5 day trip and I only had to charge it once! Great buy!

    how do i see what i have taken with out loading up too computer?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    You would have to use the LCD screen on the back of the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W800 Digital Camera in Playback mode to review your images without connecting the camera to a computer. The other option would be to purchase a portable storage device with an LCD screen to which you may transfer the images for offloading storage and viewing, such as the Sanho HyperDrive ColorSpace UDMA 3 Wireless Storage Device (500GB), B&H # HYCSU500GB, or the Digital Foci Picture Porter Advanced: Portable Digital Photo Manager (500GB HDD).

    I want to take self portraits, I already have a tripod. Is there a remote or shutter release cord that I can purchase? That would make it so much easier. If not, what do you recommend???
    Asked by: Jayne H.
    Unfortunately, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 Digital Camera does not accept wired or wireless remote controls. If you cannot reach the shutter button for self-portraiture needs, I would recommend using the built-in Self-Timer for self-portrait needs. It can be set to capture an image after a delay of either 2 seconds or 10 seconds (10 seconds would most likely be optimal for usage with self-portraits to give time to press the shutter button, then get in position before the shutter is released and the image is taken).

    Does it come with a charger for the battery? Also, is the battery it comes with rechargeable?
    Asked by: Dayna K.
    It does come with a rechargeable battery. The battery gets charged while it's in the camera, by plugging into it either the provided adapter, which gets plugged into an electric outlet, or with the provided USB cable, which you plug into your computer.
