This review is from: SONY DSCW730 Silver 16.1 MP 8X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
Takes really sharp pictures compared to any smartphones. Photo quality and movie quality is so much intensely better than any smartphone. I usually do product reviews video on Youtube, before I use a smartphone to do my bidding. Now my videos are so much improved with 720p.
Perhaps the best looking camera aesthetic wise. Another point is to capture those precious baby moments you may never get a second time. My baby nieces and baby nephews are so adorable, I want to have a collection or gallery of their photos and videos. Once they are grown up, at least I have a great recollection of photo galleries when they were babies. This is one of the principle reason I bought this camera, take many pictures and videos of my brother’s baby.
Many cool features comes package in this camera, it even has ISO settings all the way up to 3200.
Powerful flash system, in a completely dark room I took a photo with very little to no light at all. When I turn on the flash (it’s turn on by default), the picture taken was very sharp down to the extreme details! I took picture of a cord cable, the details in the picture was so fine; the layer of the cord, pattern of the cord, texture of the cord was visible in the picture!
I occasionally use it to snap homework problems or solutions/answers for college. Very handy feature when you do not have time to write down every single answers.
In the dark environments if the picture is grainy, then you should adjust your ISO settings. (Everything is nearly fix if you use flash).
Buy extra battery.
