Sony's Cyber-shot W830 is one of the lowest-priced point-and-shoot cameras that's worth having. It's a point-and-shoot compact with an 8x optical zoom, 20 Megapixel resolution and 720p video packed into a slim and light body, and offers a step-up from the cheapest compacts on the market while...

The camera is compact, easy to use and takes good pictures. The only negative is that I bought a spare battery and the only way I will be able to charge it is to put it into the camera. That is kind of awkward. I think an external charger would have been a better arrangement

This camera is perfect for people on the go. It's small enough to fit in my pocket for quick access while hanging out with friends or going out. The picture quality is amazing for such a small camera. I honestly can't believe the negative reviews.

Every thing is perfect except the amt of on-board member which holds 2-4 pictures only. Don't forget to buy the SD, micro SD cards so yo can use the camera

I do a lot of online posting of garage sale items, and it is sufficient for these. It's a little grainy for facial photographs. I like how easy it is to download the photos into my computer. And the small size is easy to carry around.

The w830B does lack some of the features that you’ll get with some of the higher-end Sony cameras, and although it’s a bargain camera, many of it’s features are sub-par . The awesome thing about it is that it’s only 98 dollars from Wal-Mart, and it definitely won’t break the bank.
