Sony Cybershot DSC-J10 Review

he Sony CyberShot DSC-J10 feels a bit like a bar of soap and is ideal for those looking for a camera which slips easily into your pocket. The lens is internal therefore the camera doesn't ever get any larger, with the only moving part being the USB connector.

The buttons are well laid out with seperate buttons for the shutter release and zoom button rather than the usual layout with the zoom rocket around the shutter release. There is a dedicated button to switch between the picture, video and panoramic modes.

The menus are clear and easy to navigate, without options which are likely to confuse beginners. The battery life is rated by CIPA at 210 shots and during testing the camera didn't show any signs of not being able to achieve this number. As the camera is regularly plugged in to download the images the camera gets charge more often.

The camera is ready to take pictures within a couple of seconds of switching on and is reasonably quick to focus. In Burst mode it is able to shoot at 1.4fps.

The camera has a 16.1 megapixel sensor and a 4x optical zoom lens which is a 35mm equivalent of 35 - 140mm. There is a substantial 4Gb of internal memory but as there isn't a memory card slot, once it is full there is no way to increase the capacity. To transfer picture and videos to a computer there is a built-in USB arm which plugs in, and charges the battery, without the use of a separate cable.

The camera has Intelligent Auto (iAUTO) mode which sets the settings to take the optimum images in varying conditions or you can choose from the scene modes available, including: High Sensitivity, Soft Snap, Landscape, Twilight Portrait, Twilight, Gourmet, Pet, Beach, Snow and Fireworks. There is also P mode and SteadyShot, which shoots with blur reduction. Panoramic images are taken using a sweep method, the camera stitches together a series of high-speed burst images when moving the camera left, right, up or down.

Sony CyberShot DSC-J10 Performance
The camera takes images with excellent colour reproduction and there is plenty of detail in pictures taken at either end of the lens. At the telephoto length there is clearly pincushion distortion, which can be seen in the ISO test pictures as the lines in the charts are bendy. With a minimum focus distance of just 1cm it is possible to take great macro shots.

Sony CyberShot DSC-J10 Value of Money
The Sony CyberShot DSC-J10 is currently available for £158.99. Other cameras to consider with a built in USB are the GE Create, priced at £169.00, and Samsung PL90 for £111.99. We have reviewed many other compact cameras worth consideration including the: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS16 for £119.99, Nikon Coolpix S3100 for £99.99 and the Canon IXUS 220 HS for £169.99.

The J10 takes good pictures with excellent colour reproduction and detail in images at both ends of the lens. Sadly it lacks many features which you can find on many digital compact cameras available for less than the price of the J10.

It is very suprising that the camera is unable to shoot full HD videos and there is noise evident in the images even at the lowest ISO setting, but if you are looking for a very compact camera with built-in memory rather than using SD cards then the J10 delivers acceptable results.
