Some key features for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W330:
-14.1 megapixel image sensor
-4x optical zoom lens (26-105mm)

-SteadyShot Image Stabilization
-Smile Shutter
-Uses Memory Stick Duo and SD memory cards

Imaging Resource ends up giving the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W330 a good review and it even receives a “Dave’s Pick” award for budget cameras. When you look on the price and that you get 14 megapixels and a nice wide angle zoom lens it is a good camera. Of course there will be shortcomings on such a cheap camera and the W330 is no exception with heavy noise handling at higher ISO levels and no optical image stabilization, but it is still a good camera when you look at the price tag.
