Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Image stabilizer Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 has an image stabilizer, however the Sony DSC-W830 does not have an image stabilizer. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

A lot bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 has a digital zoom of 48x, however the Sony DSC-W830 is only a 32x digital zoom digital camera (16x smaller). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

0.2 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 is a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera, whereas the Sony DSC-W830 is only a 6.3 maximum aperture digital camera (0.2 bigger).
2MB bigger internal memory Edit
The Sony DSC-W810 has an internal memory of 29MB, whereas the Sony DSC-W830 is only a 27MB internal memory digital camera (2MB smaller).
11 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 has an optical zoom of 8x, but the Sony DSC-W810 is only a 6x optical zoom digital camera (2x smaller). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 is a 3.3 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 0.2 smaller than the Sony DSC-W810 (3.3).
22% longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 200mm. That's 44mm longer than the Sony DSC-W810 (200mm).
1mm shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 is a 25mm minimum focal length digital camera, whereas the Sony DSC-W810 is a 26mm minimum focal length digital camera (1mm longer).
A lot bigger normal focusing range (tele) Edit

2,400 higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Sony DSC-W810 is only an 800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (2,400 lower).
25% smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit

7% lighter Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 is a 104g digital camera. That's 7g lighter than the Sony DSC-W810 (104g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Ten more battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Sony DSC-W830 takes 210.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, however the Sony DSC-W810 only takes 200.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. Read more
