  2. 2. BySteeler Fan (Pittsburgh, PA USA)-Amazon Verified Purchase(Whats this?)This review is from: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W690 16.1 MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom and 3.0-inch LCD (Silver)(2012 Model) (Electronics)I dropped my old Sony camera and it wouldnt power up.After owning two Sony digital cameras and two Sony camcorders over the years I hoped the DSC W690 would be just as likeable asa replacement. It was not.To play back a photo to view it immediately would show "Accessing" on the screen first for several seconds.This is annoying and my prior cameras did not do this. Using in autofocus mode for anything moving was also a problem.By the time the shutter snapped, the subject was gone or out of focus.We are talking a person processing by at a wedding, not a race car flying by.I returned the camera for a refund and got a Panasonic Lumix SZ7 that we are very happy with.Sorry, Sony.I tried to be faithful.45 of 45 people found the following review helpful Fine camera for the average picture-taker like me..., June 27, 2012ByHarris M. "NYC-NY" (NYC)-This review is from: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W690 16.1 MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom and 3.0-inch LCD (Silver)(2012 Model) (Electronics)I just came back from a six week trip to Eastern Europe.I had with me a Sony SteadyShot DSC-T100.Four weeks ago, in Krakow, Poland, the SteadyShot suddenly died after three years of fairly rugged use.I went to an electronics store in Krakow and, not having ready access to the Internet, decided to take a chance on the W690, whichlooked similar to the now-deceased SteadyShot in design and functionality (if youve ever bought an electronic gadget in Europe youknow that you simply have to swallow hard and do it since the 23% VAT adds, well, 23% to the price, which even when you have itrefunded at the airport, is eaten up by the processing fee).But I digress. I fell in love with this camera.I am a basic point-and-shoot picture taker.I am sitting with both cameras in front of me as I write this review.The 690 is half the weight of the T100, which wasnt all that heavy to begin with, and half as slim as the T100, which wasnt exactlya "pocket pig."The zoom was extraordinary and the functionality, including basic video, panorama-picture and just plain easy handling was greatfor a traveler who wants to take a nice shot now and then.The shot-framing was straightforward.The low-light quality of the pics was quite fine.I tried the panorama-shot feature for the first time standing on Castle Hill in Vilnius, Lithuania and was very pleasantly surprised atthe ease of the feature and the spectacular shot of the Baroque old town that I now have.The camera indulged my occasional attempts to get "artsy" with different focus, lighting and framing.I uploaded 500 or so shots tothe PC last night and the quality of the pictures is exactly what I had hoped for. If you are a point-and-shooter like me who justwants to take good pictures this camera will be an excellent choice.Now I only have to pick out the 25 shots that my friends andfamily will be willing to look at.147 of 151 people found the following review helpful Pretty good for what it is, June 10, 2012ByThe Draconic Nabokovian-This review is from: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W690 16.1 MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom and 3.0-inch LCD (Red) (2012Model) (Electronics)]I just spent the day trying out this camera as the backup to my Canon SX40 and as a potential toss in the pocket and go/social outing
  3. 3. camera.Ive owned several Sony Cybershots before and in general, they tend to be a great outdoor picture camera and very poor indoors andin low lighting.After reviewing the days photos, Ive come to the following conclusions:1. First, lets state the obvious.Theres no comparing this quality-wise to the Canon SX40 and nor should there be.This is a budget compact point and shoot, whereas the SX40 is a bridge camera, frankly the best camera Ive ever owned.That said, the quality is pretty good for its price range from first impressions (I took 43 photos in a variety of conditions, angles andzoom levels.30 of the 43 I felt good enough quality to upload to my Japan photoblog on Facebook - a pretty good ratio, considering several of thepictures were duplicate efforts at the same shot).2. In particular, this cameras indoor and low-light shooting ability is vastlyimproved over, oh, pretty much every Cybershot Ive ever owned in the past.Canon will still, in general, outperform Sony in those two categories, but in my mind, this ones a major leap forward for the SonyCybershot line.3. Its perfect for just throwing in my pocket and traipsing around.No need to carry the camera bag like with the SX40.So for that reason and the increased indoor/low-light ability, Im thinking it will work just fine for going out with friends and all thatsort of thing.4. The 10x zoom isnt going to be easy to find in the sub-$200 range, and thats quite honestly probably the biggestreason I got this as my backup camera.I just wanted a cheap camera that took decent pictures and had at least an 8x zoom.It fits the bill terrifically there.5. The image stabilization on this camera is *very* good for the price range, in my opinion.I tend to have shaky hands and only two or three pictures came out with significant blur.Since Ive listed the pros, lets go to thecons:1. The single biggest con - THIS IS A VERY SLOW PROCESSING TIME CAMERA.So if youre the sort who likes to get lots of shots off at once, avoid this camera.I found it a touch annoying, but since I tend to like to take time to set up my shots anyway, it didnt irritate me quite as much as itmight some people.2. For people with large hands like mine, the buttons/etc. can feel somewhat crowded and it may take pressing asecond or third time when pushing the on/off button to get it to turn off.3. If youre used to something like the SX40s 35x zoom, the10x zoom will be something of an adjustment period and a culture shock.So to be quite honest, if zoom power is a big deal to you, as it is for me, rather than get this camera, I would save up and get theCanon SX40.Overall Verdict:If youre on a budget and either cant afford or dont want to spend $200+ on a camera, or if yourelooking for a low-end point and shoot compact you can just stick in your pocket and not have to haul around your primary camera,this is a good camera to get.It offers a nice all-around game of image quality, stabilization feature, and a decent for the money zoom in a compact, portablepackage.Be sure that you can live with the slow processing time, though.As part of that, do keep in mind that in this range no camera is going to be perfect.Every one you find for this price ballpark is going to have some drawback to deal with.Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (8)
