Sony W830: Build and design

If you need a camera that suits your jeans or a jacket tub, Sony DSC-W80 is the ideal option. This is so small. It’s a really small light-curved sensor with a smooth top cover.


With respect to switches, a bottom on/off switch can be located in the silver color of the top board matching the silver line down the board.
First, you can see that the shutter release is present and the zoom lead is not accessible as it is operated by the switch on the back of the board.
On the back of the board, as I described above on your left-hand side, you can see a zoom turn on top of your frame. Below, there is a 4-way control pad and the menu, replication, and deleting keys.
There’s a mode switch on the right side of the monitor, and it’s the only black switch on the camera in three separate respects. The switch’s first place, the peak, is for the current style of shooting, the middle is to shift the camera through the sweeping panorama, and the bottom is for film making.


The 2.7-inch LCD panel with 230k points is on the right side of the back. It’s an ordinary computer, but the picture is not so vivid when inside and not under the shining sun. Up to 210 shots can be taken with a completely loaded battery when placed in regular W-830 mode.


With regards to the battery charging, you may either load or connect the battery into a portable device. Any USB cable which has a standard Micro-B connector may be used.
Sony has an incorporated flash on the upper right of the lens, which is situated on the front side. When set at the width, you can claim it’s good, but not so good. If the maximum range is 3.2 meters. For near topics, it may provide ample illumination.


Sony DSC-W830 is a little smooth because after you push the trigger, it will take up to three seconds before firing. But this is not surprising for cameras at this price point, since most of them will take a few seconds and be fair to many consumers.

Sensor performance

W830 is fitted with a 20.0 MP CCD camera, recording images with no more than 5152 x 3864 pixels. Images are stored in JPEG format with a single setting of consistency, which gives files of 8MP scale. ISO sensitivity scale is between 80–3200 and 1s–11600 in auto program mode and 2s–11600 in smart automobile mode.

Sony 830: Handling

A plastic sensor body with a metal influence has a Sony Cyber-Shot W830. The back mode enables you to switch between frame, panorama mode and video capture. A replay button is required to switch to playback mode.
The camera weights just 120 g, and because of its lightweight nature suits even tiny pockets, it’s easy to bring anywhere with you. The life of the battery is 210 images. But it is easy to charge, because you can only use the given cable to link it in anywhere with the USB socket. The consumer can quickly recharge a camera.


The W830 is one of the cheapest lightweight, optical image stabilization cameras, and it has limited WiFi and other networking choices. In good weather, the camera creates vibrant images, and when posted on websites like Facebook, the photographs look good. The camera will deliver decent performance, provided you can stop utilizing higher ISO speeds.
