Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W7 review
I have had this camera for over two years now. It is always my " have to have around" camera. I have several DC's and this is the one I take on vacations and use when general shooting is critical. It is so easy to use, and takes great photos, uses 2 AA batteries.
It is also the camera I take when I am only allowed to take one camera.
Battery life is not as good as some of the new cameras, but photo quality and ease of use is outstanding.
The camera has a solid feel construction wise. I bought my daughter a newer W-55, thinking it was a substantial upgrade, but the W-7 does a much better overall job. I used her W-55 thinking she just wasn't doing something right, but photos are hit or miss with the W-55. Whatever Sony did for the W-5 and W-7s, they should bring back to their newer line of cameras.
I am starting to wonder if all the extra processing power included in the newer cameras ( Sony, and others) is reducing their abilty to just get a good shot.
This camera rocks ! If you can find one,get it.
