Product Details

Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera - DSCW830B

It’s the amazingly easy-to-use camera that slips right in your pocket—with an 8x optical zoom, 20.1MP photos and beautifully-detailed HD videos. And pics stay clearer, even with shaky hands thanks to Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization. You can also enhance your images with built-in effects that adjust skin tone and texture or even whiten teeth.

Features:

  • 20.1 Megapixel Plus 8x Zoom
    A powerful 20.1 megapixel CCD image sensor helps you capture gorgeous images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail. With 20.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to A3+ (13x19”) size, or crop your images and still come away with high resolution shots. The 8x zoom Carl Zeiss® Vario Tessar lens helps you get much closer to your subjects
  • Optical SteadyShot™ image Stabilization with 2-way Active Mode
    Sony's Active Mode image stabilization gives you the freedom to shoot movies even while walking or running. 2-way Active Mode corrects for both vertical and horizontal motion
  • 720p MP4 HD Movie Mode
    In 720p MP4 movie mode the camera shoots 1280 x 720 high definition movies at 30 fps, a standard format when working with a PC.¹ Create high quality movies with full use of optical zoom in files small enough to transfer to compatible PC or Mac® computer. Once transferred to your computer and connected to the internet, you can effortlessly upload your media to popular photo and video-sharing websites such as Photobucket® and YouTubeTM
  • Creative shooting with Picture and Beauty effects
    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 allows edits to skin tones, skin smoothing, shine removal, eye widening, and teeth whitening. Beauty Effects can be combined to further enhance the image
  • Advanced Flash illuminates distant subjects
    Advanced Flash allows you to shoot bright, beautifully lit photos. The built in flash reaches farther resulting in brighter subjects in dimly lit rooms or outdoors in the evening
  • Intelligent Auto Mode
    Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you, recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, faces, and adjusts settings resulting in clear images, faces with natural skin tone and less blur. Take advantage of all the technology without leaving Auto mode. Kids on the playground, landscape shots, a beautiful flower or an indoor birthday party; all result in clear images without leaving auto mode
  • Sweep Panorama™ mode (up to 360°)
    Reach beyond the traditional wide angle lens, and capture more breathtaking shots with Sweep Panorama™ mode. 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. Available in wide and up to 360° full circle, the camera can take a variety of panoramic shots. Now capturing wide landscapes is as easy as press and sweep
  • Face Detection technology
    Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends
  • Smile Shutter™ technology
    Smile Shutter™ technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter™ button and the camera does the rest. 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
  • 2.7” (230K dots) Clear Photo™ LCD display
    Generous 2.7” (230K dots) Clear Photo™ LCD display features sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight

I received the Sony Cyber-shot Digital Camera for my birthday in June last year. We were planning a trip to Hawaii in September and I wanted to be sure I could take lots of photos and easily upload them to my laptop. I used the camera a lot in the months prior to the trip to familiarize myself with it. If you use it indoors without the flash, there is a distinct possibly that you will get a blurry photo. With the flash, it usually comes out great, even with movement, however, posed shots can be tricky because the camera takes longer to take flash photos. I have to always tell people "It's going to flash twice so stay still until after the second flash!" But usually, the photos come out terrific. I will say this. The photos I took in Maui were amazing. Taking pictures outdoors, even through the windows of a moving car, worked so well I was thrilled. The photos were clear and of excellent quality. Every once in a while, I'd get a blurry shot, but that was usually when I was very close to something outside the car. Taking a shot of something in the distance through the car window worked extremely well. For someone who isn't aspiring to be a pro, this little camera takes great shots for your memory book. I love it and I am thrilled to death with my purchase. Photos are so easy to upload to any computer, too!

I was very excited when I first got this camera. I set it up right away, took some pics around the house and out at the park to test it out. Seemed to work fine. Couldn't wait to use it on our summer vacation, which was actually why we'd bought it for in the first place. But, when the moment of truth came it was definately not what I expected. Doesn't capture movement any better. Although, it does capture nice pics when you're out in broad daylight. Nonetheless, at someplaces, like at the aquarium the pics came out dark (eventhough the flash was on) and also, very out of focus. I felt it let me down, I was unable to take good-looking pics of the shark tank...that was a real bummer. Another thing about the camera is that when I'm looking at the pics I've taken this message appears on a blue screen "cannot display file" for some pics. Eventhough when I hook it up to the computer all the pics are in fact in the card. I also have to say that I used to have another model of a sony camera and it had a lot of the same issues. I went ahead with Sony once again because I liked to believe it's a brand I could trust. It's all very dissappointing

Awesome Camera but no memory card?

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1MP Silver Digital Camera:

This digital camera takes amazing pictures. However, it promises HD videos but does not mention in the description that you need a memory card in order to take videos or more than 8 pictures. I've been looking online for a memory card for this camera and still haven't found one due to poor description on exactly what kind of memory card this camera takes. There are many different kinds of Sony memory cards. Which one does this camera take?

BEWARE Panorama is not 360

By 

from 22560

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1MP Silver Digital Camera:

Good camera. I am pleased overall. I was disappointed in the inaccuracy of the description "360 Sweep Panorama technology." 360 should only mean one thing: when you take a panoramic shot you can turn all the way around! The angle width of the panorama is the same as in previous models, but now you can select to sweep left, right, up, or down. That is you can choose to sweep in four directions, count them 4 not 360. This does NOT constitute a 360 degree sweep. This had been a major reason for my upgrading to this model.

Camera has a problem

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1MP Silver Digital Camera:

Camera Viewfinder only has 3/4 of the screen showing. Can't see commands or whole pictures. Tried Sony online with no help. Can't seem to find out where or what to do with this Camera. I had another Sony prior to this and the LCD also took a nose dive, I am done with Sony period.

Perfect size

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1MP Silver Digital Camera:

I needed a pocket-sized camera I could keep handy to take photos quickly when I needed to document something. I used this to take close-up photos, portraits, group photos and scenery. The photos were clear and the color was excellent. It had a slight learning curve to utilize all the features but basically it's ready to use. I did find the delay between pressing the shutter release until the photo is taken a bit frustrating. Overall, I'm very happy with this camera.

Sony DSC W830 camera

By 

from 70405

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1MP Silver Digital Camera:

The button to press for taking a photo is very difficult to use. I can't tell when it is half depressed to get the focus. Many vacation pics were out of focus because of the recess button. I still have the camera but bought new Sony with elevated button. I would never buy this camera again until Sony resolves this issue.

from Moultonborough, NH 03254, USA

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1MP Silver Digital Camera:

so smart this little camera ! i do love using it, there are tons of action's i still have not used, im kinda stuck on "easy shot" the camera does all the work for you ! i also live the video part, easy to read, the only thing im not crazy about is the very very short cord from your computer to the camera to up load...its way short..thats why i gave 4 stars, i would even purchase one, but had no luck on doing so...

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1MP Silver Digital Camera:

I've owned a Sony camera for quite a while but keep having trouble with it and told my husband I needed a new camera for Christmas. Well I got this one, charged it and have been taking great pictures with it and the ease of using it is fantastic. Would advise anyone to get one - small, lightweight and great.
