I have been using Canon Digital Camera for over 5 years and even though I still enjoyed the high quality photos and videos that I was getting, I decided it was time to shop for another cheap camera as I personal gift last Christmas. I was looking for a camera with at least good megapixels, stylish and since Sony Cybershot DSC W530 comes with 14.1 megapixel camera and the price was very reasonable, it was the best option for me among the many brands.

Packaging and Design
The Sony Cybershot DSC W530 is a stylish digital camera which comes in different colors ranging from black, silver, pink, blue and green, so there is no way you will not find the perfect color for you. I bought the blue colored one.  The camera is packed in a relatively small box and indeed, it is very light to carry it around (weighs 113g). It comes with a manual which is very easy to understand.

The features are very basic and you will not have any problem when operating the camera.  You are also guided by texts which appear on the screen and explain the functions of different features as you go through the camera. The camera is very small and you can slip it into your pocket easily unlike other digital cameras in the market which are of bigger size. It also snug perfectly on palm of the hand making it easy to hold.

Features and Results
When it comes to its physical features, the camera is sleek, stylish and looks so modern. The blue color make the camera looks more expensive than what it costs. What I enjoy most in any camera is having good quality photos and indeed, this 14.1 megapixel camera is not bad at all and the pictures are of very good in quality. You will enjoy having those clear amazing photo that will need little or no editing to make them perfect. There are also different scenes to choose from which depends on the occasion and time that you are taking your photos. The 4x optical zoom gives you an opportunity to shot any image from top to bottom at ease though, if you plan to take photos at a distance, sometimes the image look so blurred and hard to see.

The other feature that I enjoy is the smile detector which allows you take shot automatically when it turned on.  The 2.7 inch screen size with the combination of the wide angle lens is perfect for those who wants to take photo on landscape and provides enough space to fit the photos easily without much problem.

The images are easily downloaded from the camera by use of USB without any problem and they look very nice if you decide to use them as a background images. However, if your laptop or the computer has a card reader (most modern laptops do) you can use the SD memory card to upload the images which is much easier.

The down side with this camera is that, it does not comes with the HD video recording like most of the cameras nowadys but if you are looking to having standard quality movie footage, you can definitely get the footage by use of both intelligent auto and easy shooting modes.

Recommendation
The camera serves it purpose very well and for its price, it is very worth to buy it but for those who are looking for HD video records, then this camera is definitely not meant for you.
