Terrible quality, a waste of money.

Flimsy body - figs with him, if there was a quality of the picture! But when you zoom in, it's not there. Macro is better than super zoom. I only use it to see what's out there! Then I erase ruthlessly I take a picture in program mode with exposure compensation of minus 0.67. So at least it doesn’t light up the pictures (everything is very sad on the machine!) Comparison with a Nokia smartphone kills this device on the spot (deaf knockout!). There, if you enlarge the photo, you get the same…

  • Control. Macro photography. Manual focus. Such an increase! In good light (not dark and not bright-contrast), it shoots quite well
  • Low dynamic range images Lots of watercolors Tends to over-brighten frames (but there is an exposure compensation button) Superzoom - pictures at the level of phones 0.3 MP - Horror! No touchscreen (Well, I want to!)

I didn't expect the quality to be so high.

I've been wearing it every day for almost 5 years now. Bought for video shooting - never regretted. The ideal picture of the video when shooting FullHD 50fps. The pictures are perfect, the ability to autofocus and sports mode, macro photography, panoramas, good shutter speed. Thanks to charging via microUSB, in the presence of a portable power unit (it is popular to carry it to recharge mobile phones), the operating time becomes unlimited, because. recharging is also possible while shooting a…

  • 1. 50x image magnification without quality loss; 2. The ability to take photos both with manual settings and with a number of automatic modes; 3. Wi-Fi Direct, thanks to which you can directly “field” transfer photos to your mobile device for, for example, instant publication on the Internet; 4. Simplicity and convenience in use.
  • 1. It is difficult to pull out a high-quality photo and video in the dark without using a flash and a flashlight. 2. The absence of a 3.5 connector for connecting a third-party audio source.

How long have I been waiting for something universal (video / photo) and with one button))) My review is for objective people, so whoever likes to make some noise, everyone is now rotated on SLRs! And a ballroom question, pseudo-specialists - And what is her (camera) matrix size? It's been annoying for a long time! Yes, you can’t argue with physics, but it’s not so simple! helps a lot with dynamic shooting), He's just tiny! I bought a couple more, but only one came in handy for practice, and…

One of the best offers, glad I bought it.

I have been using the camera for 2 years, the electronic video finder is very pleasing, I put everything on it and you can immediately see what photo will be in the output. ! the quality of the photos is beyond praise, SHAVING SHARPNESS and detail! who talks about soap, they don’t even understand what they are talking about ! yes, there is a little more noise compared to DSLRs, but these noises are visible only at 100% magnification, why it’s completely incomprehensible to me to increase it…

The perfect product for any user!

Has some pros The macro is amazing! When approaching an object, stabilization is lame and it's annoying ! Cons: No Bluetooth . It's bad to transfer photos to a cell phone ! I am suffering with image clarity . Sharpness is induced for a long time, although at first everything was fine !

I am very upset, the product is no good.

I was under the impression that on Ya. M. PR people work based on the reviews, and I'll now explain why that was the case: 1) The picture's quality is really terrible; the photographs taken by my iPhone 5 are orders of magnitude better; it's really a step up. This teeny-tiny camera found in the phone takes pictures that are superior in quality, more clear, and with significantly less noise. Even in bright daylight, Sony's cameras produce a lot of background noise when set to ISO 200. How so? My

  • It is effective, in addition to having many other benefits!
  • - Horrible image quality; - Expensive; - Weeds when working with a personal computer; - Unreliable wireless synchronization; these are just some of the issues with the product.

The right product for me, the price suited me.

It is constructed very strongly, and a hard blow on asphalt is used as a test to determine whether or not it is suitable for driving nails. However, as an alternative to a hammer, I do not recommend utilizing it. The benefits include the following: Zoom, image stabilization, and really impressive post-processing When shooting at night, he chooses how many frames to "detach" and then considers how to piece them back together into a single image. Throughout the day, I was satisfied with the…

The price/quality ratio is great, I will buy again.

Back in December 2022, I got it for myself as a birthday present. зa 15990 руб Do etogo, nemnogo v cvoe vrema, vladel zifrovym SONY W50(6-megapikselej, foto on delal prosto sikarnogo kacestva, a po svoemu razmeru (maksimal nomu) oni daje v monitor komp utera ne vlezali, pri 100% rassmotrenii),poetomu I ostanovil my choice on SONY, I liked the optics and the quality of the photo.

  • A significant optical zoom (there is no requirement for a swarm of lenses positioned at various distances), very high ergonomics throughout the entire device, the presence of a flash shoe, and the inclusion of everything else that a contemporary digital camera ought to have is all present and correct.
  • It is possible to scratch the rear screen because it does not pivot to face the camera when it is in the stowed position; instead, it always faces the street.

Normal quality, you can use it.

I have ownership over two years. The first thing that took me by surprise was how good the picture turned out to be! It is absolutely horrible! On par with a smartphone that has a matrix with 8 megapixels! At first, I had the bright idea of resolving everything by adjusting the settings manually; alas, this did not result in anything positive! The soap climbs with an incredible amount of force! For instance, the leaves on the trees appear to be some kind of unorganized jungle of green. (in the…

  • Zoom ratio, apps from "store sony," screen, and a lens made by Carl Zeiss of high quality Autofocus.
  • photo quality, flimsy body that completely leaks, weak flash and battery, and poor overall performance.

Everything in the purchase suits, a very necessary product.

We've only been using the camera for a month. So far so good, but time will tell what will happen next. For non-professionals, I think this camera is just a godsend. It is a pity that in the last month the price of it has doubled. Its pros: I liked the camera. They took for shooting matinees for a child and home photos. The photo quality is getting old. There are many different functions, but most importantly, for me, as a non-professional, there are intelligent settings. You point at the face…

I didn³'t expect the quality to be this good.

Before that, I had an HX-300 camera for 2.5 years. In terms of control, they are the same, the quality of pictures and videos is better than the HX400. The zoom stabilizer is more stable here. You can use filters. The downside is that you can’t transfer video to a smartphone. The camera fits well in the hand. Recommended for everyday shooting. Pros below: Utrazum, video quality, battery. Control via wifi from smartphone. Its cons: It is impossible to transfer video files from the camera to a…

I recommend to buy, the product is of high quality.

It is made very firmly, you can safely hammer in nails with it, it is checked by a strong blow on the asphalt. But instead of a hammer - I do not recommend using it. Its pros: Zoom, stabilization, very good photo processing when shooting at night, he decides how many frames to "detach" and how to assemble them into one. During the day, I was pleased with the assembly of sharpness due to several shots, this is when all the plans of the frame, from the edge of the wall half a meter to "near the…

Expectations were not met, average quality.

Pay attention to all the nuances, for example, in one sample that I saw in the Sony store, the image in the viewfinder was trembling, the consultant explained this with the camera settings. Has some pros Carl zeiss optics, large zoom, many manual and automatic settings, ideal for those who do not want to carry a lot of optics and often change lenses. Has some cons Image quality is in the first place, then what I managed to notice is the actual lack of detailed instructions, everything is either

A useless product, its not worth the money.

Rating "2" put for the high cost, with poor quality in general. Bought as a walking camera with superzoom. The quality of the pictures, like for Instagram or on a FullHD TV set, does not pull on more. I have enough battery for a day if I do not shoot video. For this price, it is better to buy a camera with a 4/3 matrix if you do not need a superzoom. Different pros: Zoom, lens, you can buy mini programs in the camera itself, sometimes very useful. Cons below: Soap, in my opinion, the real…

The right product for me, the price suited me.

In general, the model is very good. Many scold for the lack of RAW, but the camera gives excellent pictures in JPEG, which almost do not need to be adjusted. Pros below: -Zoom - a real telescope, and even with such a huge increase in photo quality does not suffer. - Automatic exposure metering and autofocus on top. Works quickly and efficiently. - The color is excellent, the number of photo stretches in Photoshop is minimal - WiFi. Very cool. By downloading the Sony PlayMemories application…

Not a bad product, nothing extraordinary.

in fact, it turned out to be a super soap box: 1. On the entire zoom spectrum of this camera, you can shoot only under one condition - watch photos on a smartphone / tablet and upload them to Instagram and other social networks. Fortunately, there is also WiFi and BT and NFC. 2. You can shoot on this camera only in normal lighting, the edge is twilight. and do not look at photos on large screens such as a PC or laptop. the nerves will be better. 3. I can not say that I am disappointed in the…

  • 1. the famous Zoom 2. light 3. durable 4. very good stabilization and an intelligent system for collecting a series of frames into one, shot the Moon on a full moon from hand at 100x.
  • The picture quality is just not good. at all. no AI can save you. a miniature matrix simply kills the whole point of superzoom any photo. in fact - you can normally shoot on it (so as not to turn gray from the horror seen on the big screen) up to 20x then the tin begins. noise just at any ISO. sorry, of course, but on iPhones 7 and later, the quality of the pictures is better :(

The price/quality ratio is great, I will buy again.

I wanted to buy a DSLR 1200, you know what, but somehow I fell for Sony, I’ll say right away I really liked the optics and versatility. since there was no desire to buy additional lenses and constantly change them on the street. while studying the camera, about 200 photographs were taken, I didn’t notice any noise even at high ISOs over 2400, moreover, Sonya shoots perfectly in a dark room at the lowest ISO. so I don’t see the point in raising it, I use only manual settings, I didn’t shoot it…
