User Reviews Are Good

On average, people who bought this Sony digital camera rated it as 83%.

Reasonably Priced

One Sony DSC-W810 reviewer who bought it considered that it was a bargain for the price. Chris Bailey wrote “Having a 6x zoom facility this camera felt 'cheap' compared tomy 5yr old Sony DSC-W350 which at 14.1mp with a Zeiss Ikon lens & 5x zoom produced far superior, crisperphotographs”.

Good Brand

On average Sony compact camera digital cameras have good reviews as do all cameras built by Sony.

Good Product Quality

One Sony DSC-W810 owner who reviewed it thought it was good quality. Phones.com wrote “Adequate camera quality”.

Good Quality Pictures

One customer who reviewed the Sony DSC-W810 considered that it was good in low light. Expert website Steves-Digicams.com said “An extremely budget-friendly point-and-shoot digicam Sony says is so great in low light shooting conditions, they decided to give it a "Party Mode." No kidding”.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

We compared all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think the Canon IXUS 175[plb_3191143_price], and the Kodak Pixpro FZ152[plb_3584864_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
