Does Not Support Full HD Video

The DSC-W670 does not support Full HD video, although keep in mind that most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that are a comparable age to this digital camera also do not support Full HD video.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with a Full HD video and we think the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the SLT-A57Y both from Sony or the Casio EX-ZR400 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Display

Quite Small Display Diagonal

Cameras that were launched around the same time as this camera have display diagonals of between 2" and 4.8", and the average display diagonal is 2.9". The DSC-W670 has one of the smaller display diagonals (only 2.7 inches) amongst cameras of this age.

We compared this camera to all the other 2.7" screen cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Rollei Sportsline 99, the Nikon S3100, and the Fujifilm FinePix JX350 is also worth considering.

If this Sony camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the PowerShot N2 ($236.99) (2.8"), or the G1 X ($480.92) (2.8") both from Canon or the Sony DSC-WX10 (2.8") which also has a higher rating.
