Sony DSC-W530 Digital Camera Video Test

1 Reason For

Good Brand

Cameras built by Sony have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just cameras) and found that Sony also has good reviews across its entire range.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The DSC-W530 does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been around for more than two years also do not have an image stabiliser.

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also have an image stabiliser including the Sony DSC-HX200V which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The DSC-W530 does not support Full HD video, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other cameras of this age and type also do not support Full HD video.

There are a number of alternative cameras which also support Full HD video which you might want to consider including the DSC-HX200V, or the NEX-3NL ($374.91) both from Sony.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Sony DSC-W530 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other cameras that have been available for around the same time as the DSC-W530 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative digital cameras which also support WiFi connectivity including the Samsung DV151, or the Sony ILCE-QX1 ($498.00).

Does Not Support Video Recording

Like most of the other similar spec cameras that are a comparable age to the DSC-W530, the Sony DSC-W530 does not support video recording.

It is worth considering other digital cameras which also support video recording including the Samsung DV151, or the Canon EOS 1D Mark III.

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

The DSC-W530 does not have a built-in flash. Most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the DSC-W530 also do not have a built-in flash.

We compared this camera to all the other cameras with a built-in flash and we think the DSC-HX200V, or the NEX-3NL ($374.91) both from Sony which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not Waterproof

Most digital cameras of this age and spec are not waterproof. The Sony DSC-W530 is no exception to this as it too is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The DSC-W530 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other cameras of this type and age are also not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

Like most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been available for a comparable time to the DSC-W530, the DSC-W530 does not have a GPS.

We think you might also be interested in other cameras which also have a GPS including the Sony DSC-HX200V which also has a higher rating.
