Sony Cybershot W810 Digital Camera

Got this affordable digital camera, Sony Cybershot W810, for my parents. They don’t need touch screen or other very deep functionalities. Just want shoot and capture. The sales man told me that it has a very good “Intelligent Auto” mode which is very capable of taking good photos even when your hands are shaking. Mmm.. sounds like it suits old people like my parents (and me :p).

Nice bag :)

One thing that caught me out is the charging cable. It charges directly the camera through a weird looking Power Adopter -> USB -> Camera. As a result, there is a boxy kind of in between the two cables (power cable and usb cable). I guess this means that it can also be charged (and connected) to a PC. Also, as I am used to Canon standalone charger (which just charges the battery). Think of it, guess it is better than lagging along a standalone charger ?

Took some test photos and the quality is not bad at all…. I still loved my Canon S95 but this is light and easy to use. Really think it is suitable for my parents !
