Sony's W570 is a small, slender point-and-shoot compact. It may look the part, but can its 16MP sensor play the part too? The What Digital Camera Sony Cyber-shot W570 review investigates...
Value & Verdict
Sony Cyber-shot W570 review – Value
With an RRP of £159 the Sony W570 is an affordable camera that can be picked up a little cheaper at some online stores. Although there are other point-and-shoot compact cameras that can be picked up for a little less money, the Sony’s overall slender design and finish give it that attractive edge. And style, for many, is worth paying for.
Sony Cyber-shot W570 review – Verdict
The Sony Cyber-shot W570 is a good-looking, small and slim compact camera. It’s ideal for simple point-and-shoot work, is responsive in use and takes reasonable pictures (although the 16MP sensor has more pixels than are needed). The 25-125mm equivalent zoom is rangey enough for a whole variety of shots and the autofocus swift to focus on subjects. The W570’s a great compact for the style-conscious, though don’t overestimate what it’s capable of doing – it’s kept simple with few options, but we like it like that.
