At A Glance

The DSC-W370 has a great zoom range and a lot of extras for a point-and-shoot that costs about $200, but the lag time between actions is a major drag.

Manufacturer’s Description

Cyber-shot Digital Camera W370 captures detailed images with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 7X optical zoom lens with 34mm equivalent wide angle and 14.1 megapixel 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD image sensor.
