Sony Cyber-shot W35

It’s that time of the year again, when loads of cameras are launched, and we, the consumers have a wide choice to choose from. Just last week, Canon had launched the PowerShot A550 and A460. Now it’s Sony’s turn to launch two new W Series Cyber-shot cameras, W55 and W35 which do not compromise on looks, useful features or even amazing imaging performance.

The Sony Cyber-shot W35 and W55 digital cameras offer crisp and clear images due to the effective 7.2 megapixel sensor and Real Imaging Processor. One of the modes on the Sony Cyber-shot W35 and W55 digital cameras is the High Sensitivity (REI) mode that boosts the maximum sensitivity of both cameras to ISO 1000. This mode makes it easier to capture blur-free pictures even when shooting indoors without flash or in low light conditions.

The Sony RAW NR noise reduction algorithm suppresses picture noise at highest sensitivity setting for clearer and much more natural images.

The Sony Cyber-shot W35 and W55 digital cameras incorporate the very high quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens that offers a 3x optical zoom range and a 6x digital zoom capability together with a combined 14x SmartZoom. The lens can also focus right down to 2cm shooting distance meant for extreme close-ups in Macro mode.

Moreover, shots can also be framed by using the optical viewfinder as an alternative to the 2-inch LCD screen. The Sony Cyber-shot W55 offers an even bigger picture with its easy to read 2.5-inch screen.

Apart from these technical issues, the Sony Cyber-shot W35 and W55 digital cameras have a great look as well. The Sony Cyber-shot W35 and W55 digital cameras are very light and compact enough to fit into a pocket or bag, and they also have a very durable metal face.
