Sony DSC-W650 First Impressions Review

If you’re looking for a new budget camera at CES, then you’ve come to the right place.



If you're looking for a new budget camera at CES, then you've come to the right place. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W650 is a compact, 16-megapixel camera that offers 720p HD video recording and a 5x optical zoom all for under $150 bucks. The camera isn't loaded with special features or manual controls, but Sony did include a 360° Sweep Panorama setting that has been a spot-light feature on previous Sony models.

Want a bit of color on your new Cyber-shot? The DSC-W650, which should be available mid-February, comes with red, black, or silver paint jobs.
