The Cybershot DSC-W5 is a digital camera that provides 5.1 effective Megapixel resolution as well as a very high level of Stamina battery life, easy-to-use functions, 32MB internal memory and large 2.5-inch LCD display. The appeal of this camera is strengthened by a robust aluminium metal body, which features a superb Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with a 3X optical zoom. The Sony Cybershot DSC-W5 is designed along classic lines, appealing to the traditionalist as well as those looking for a stylish digital camera. However there's nothing old-fashioned about its functions. As well as its several fully automatic modes for quick shooting and ease of use there are also manual exposure settings suitable for the more creative photographer.
