The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W510 is a low-cost digital camera. Sony promotes the W line of cameras as some of its most affordable, full-featured point-and-shoot cameras to date. The 12.1 megapixel sensor of the Cyber-shot DSC-W510 captures images with contrast and detail, up to 13x19" prints. This camera's 4x optical zoom lens brings distant subjects closer. This lens is 26mm equivalent wide-angle, which allows for group shots in tight spots. The 2.7 inch LCD display (230K pixels) allows you to compose photos and view photos, as well as view menus. The Cyber-shot DSC-W510's Sweep Panorama mode allows you to just press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction for a panoramic capture. When you do this the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment. The PHOTOMUSIC feature combines images with music (4 tracks, 5 minutes per track) to produce slide shows with visual effects (Simple, Nostalgic, Active, or Stylish). This camera differs from the higher cost Cyber-shot DSC-W530 in that the Cyber-shot DSC-W530 has a 14.1 megapixel sensor (for even more detail and contrast) and a high-performance Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens. There are color options available for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W510 digital camera.
