Cons

lacks the latest sensor technology, uses a CCD based design rather than Sony's 'Exmor R' backside illuminated CMOS, poorer in low light

1 agrees

video tends to get out of focus and shaky when zoomed

1 agrees

BIONZ processor doesn't do much for speeding up the camera, committing images to the memory card storage makes the camera feel sluggish

1 agrees

basic point and shoot design - limited 5x zoom lens, low resolution display, mediocre image quality at the end of the day

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 is a low-cost digital camera. This camera's 720p HD Movie Mode captures video in 1280 x 720 at 30fps. The Cyber-shot DSC-W570's Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot. This camera's SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality. The Cyber-shot DSC-W570's Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for lifelike images. The lens of this camera is 25mm equivalent wide-angle, which allows for group shots in tight spots. The iAuto mode of the Cyber-shot DSC-W570 recognizes scenes, lighting conditions and faces, and adjusts settings accordingly. This camera differs from the lower cost Cyber-shot DSC-W560 model in that it has a 16.1 megapixel sensor (instead of 14.1 megapixels) and a 5x optical zoom (instead of 4x), though its LCD display is only 2.7 inches (the Cyber-shot DSC-W560's is three inches). There are color options available for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570 digital camera.
