About Sony

The DSC-W200 combines the amazing detail of 12.1 MP resolution with high sensitivity for shooting without a flash even in very low light. Super SteadyShot image stabilization keeps blur to a minimum, & advanced high-tech features like Face Detection, D-range optimization, & in-camera retouching & red-eye reduction help bring out the best in every shot you take.

With more megapixels than most digital cameras, the DSC-W200 captures greater image definition so you can make big prints & tight crops without losing detail. The advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity & reducing noise

A top-quality Carl Zeiss 3X optical zoom lens design helps the DSC-W200 bring distant subjects closer & lets you frame shots quickly for better composition.

By automatically controlling focus, exposure, color & flash, this advanced feature reveals faces in shadow, makes skin tones look more natural & eliminates harsh facial glare, to help bring out every expression on every face in every shot, so you'll capture the personalities & emotions that make memories come alive

At 3 megapixel resolution, you can shoot effectively without flash even in very low light to preserve the mood capture fast action at high shutter speeds. The Clear RAW noise reduction system takes care of picture noise that can ruin low-light shots

SteadyShot optical image stabilization, the DSC-W200 compensates forshaky hands & minimizes blur with optical sensors that detect camera movement & send correcting signals to a stabilization lens

Watch as your photos come alive on compatible HDTV screens, accompanied by your choice of visual effects & any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite MP3 tunes downloaded from PC to your camera for use as background music

Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz high-speed processing engine, D-range optimization preserves image data in bright highlights & reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas, for great results even in difficult lighting conditions.

Add creative effects to photos after you shoot. Included effects are soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to place starry "dazzles" at highlight points, partial color filter to mute surrounding colors & fish-eye filter to create interesting results.

Good Starter


from Undisclosed

This is not the first Digital camera I have owned, but it is by far the best. The pictures are not blurred by the slightest motion, the videos are clear and steady with good sound, and I love the sweeping panorama feature. This is not gods gift to digital photography, but if you are just starting out it's a good buy.


piece of junk, terrible customer service


from California

Bought this as a lightweight camera to take on a mountain hiking vacation. It broke the second day of vacation. On my return, I tried to get Sony to refund or replace it but they will only repair it (I've had it less than a month!) which will take several weeks and so I will not have a camera for my next vacation, either. Buy this only if you wish to gamble with your vacation pictures.


This is an amazing camera!


from Richmond, IN

The D200 is best as a pocket camera for pros or serious amateurs. It is not for the aim and shoot person who will not learn how to use a fast shutter speed to avoid blur. [...] This is not ordinary camera, by any means!


i would buy this camera again for ever


from Miami, Fl  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast
