ConsSlight delay sometimes when taking photos

Under no circumstances do I profess to be the next David Bailey; I do like a good camera though to capture those all important moments that we will treasure in years to come. Likewise, I am in constant search of that perfect image to print, frame and have hanging proudly on my living room wall...

ProGreat Price

ConsNot great in dark setting even with flash

This is actually the first time that I really used consumer review sites as a buying guide myself, and although I generally look at the reviews here before buying products, this was the first time I put faith in one of the most popular digital camera here. I have no regrets in buying this, and...

ConsNone really unless you want something more complex

I recently came back from holiday in Italy and took my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W510 camera with me. I must admit that since owning an iPhone where I have a camera constantly with me I rarely use a separate camera, but I wanted to on holiday as it is better quality and also I would not be worried...

ConsNone for me

I can't say I'm as technologically proficient as some of the others reviewing this product on the site, but I can say, for me anyway, this is a very good camera. Although the camera is not primarily in use by me - this is my sister's device - I've had time to come to grips with it and it's a...

ConsVideo not great, features can be confusing

Sony are renowned for making quality products. This product lives up to these expectations, although there are a few niggles. First and foremost, this takes fantastic pictures without having to adjust any settings. If you want a point and click camera (which is what I wanted) then this would be a...

ConsBattery life not the best on the market

~Technical Info~ 12 Megapixels 4x Optical Zoom 2.7 inch LCD Screen SteadyShot USB Cable ~Review~ I decided to buy a small resonably priced camera because I wanted one that was slightly better than my camera phone. Also I tend to just leave pictures on my phone or transfer them to my computer and...

“Best value camera... EVER!”

published 13/01/2013

ProSo so cheap without compromise on quality!

ConsNot too great in low light

received this camera for Christmas from my mother. She isn't a technology sort of person and I suspect she bought this because of its very low price. However, she made a fantastic decision! The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W510 gives amazing quality images without knowledge of photography needed. However...
