Combining a variety of intelligent, easy-to-use features, the DSC-W530 Cybershot digital camera makes it a breeze to shoot life as it happens. Capture landscapes with one touch using Sweep Panorama Mode and snap that perfect portrait with Smile Shutter technology. Powerful and pocket-sized, the W530 also features 14.1 megapixels and a 26mm wide angle lens with 4x optical zoom. In addition to SteadyShot image stabilization which compensates for camera shake, this camera also has Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode that thinks for you by recognizing scenes, lighting conditions and faces, then automatically adjusts settings for clear images with less blur.

Strengths: Fast Start up, fast picture taking, lightweight, picture colors very true, inexpensive, good picture quality
Weaknesses: Doesn't zoom very far, not many picture settings but the one that it has are typically the only ones I've ever used
I am a person who takes pictures at parties or on vacation and so for me this Camera provides me with everything I need. I previously owned a Nikon digital Camera and while it took good pictures the start up time was slow and the picture taking speed was the same. I do not have that problem with this camera! It turns on fast and takes good pictures quickly. The only bad part about this camera is the zoom. It doesn't zoom very far, unlike most cameras it won't even zoom with a compromise to picture quality. 4x is all you get
