From the Manufacturer
The DSC-W330 captures amazingly detailed images with a Carl Zeiss 26mm equivalent wide angle 4x zoom lens. Taking and reviewing images is made easy with a large 3.0-inch LCD and advanced features including Easy mode, iAuto and SteadyShot make it easy to capture great images in various conditions.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W330 Highlights
14-megapixel Super HAD CCD image sensor
A powerful 14.1-megapixel, 1/2.3-inch Super HAD CCD image sensor helps you capture gorgeous images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail. With 14.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to A3+ (13x19-inch) size, or crop your images and still come away with high-resolution shots.
Sony 4x optical zoom lens with 26mm equivalent wide angle brings distant subjects closer for great outdoor, sports, and travel photos.
Generous 3.0-inch (230K pixels) Clear Photo LCD display features sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight.
Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode
Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you, recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, and faces, and adjusts settings resulting in clearer images, faces with more natural skin tone, and less blur. By incorporating advanced features such as Intelligent Scene Recognition, Face Detection technology, and SteadyShot image stabilization, iAuto mode lets you take advantage of the latest Sony Cyber-shot technology without leaving auto mode. Whether you're shooting landscapes, capturing a beautiful flower, or taking pictures at an in-door birthday party or wedding shower, iAuto mode will optimize your camera's settings to help ensure you come away with a great shot.
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects nine different types of scenes and, within just 1/30th of a second, selects the appropriate camera settings: Backlight, Backlight Portrait, Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Portrait, Landscape and Macro . iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep.
Steady Shot Image Stabilization
SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake and helps prevent blur by using higher ISO.
Face Detection technology
Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces.
Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection Sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can be used together with Smile Shutter mode. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.
The DSC-W330 features 10 convenient scene modes: High Sensitivity, Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Soft Snap, Landscape, Beach, Snow, Underwater, Gourmet, Pet.
Thanks to Intelligent AF technology, capture fleeting moments like a child's adorable expression with the ultra-quick AF which locks focus in as little as 0.3 seconds.
Easy Shooting Mode
With Easy Shooting Mode, even beginners can take great photos. In Easy Shooting Mode, easy-to-understand basic instructions are displayed on the LCD screen and the camera switches to all automatic settings, removing several function choices and allowing you to focus on just your subject. Since this mode works together with Intelligent Scene Recognition, the camera selects the optimum setting for each scene. In addition the easy mode simplifies preview mode.
This beginner-friendly optional function helps navigate through the various functions and settings displaying the description of chosen functions or settings on the LCD screen.
In-Camera Retouching Tools
Retouch and enhance your photos on the go with in-camera Trimming and Red-Eye Correction.
Included lithium-ion battery provides added convenience with longer lasting power than alkaline batteries (capacity of 230 images or 115 minutes of still image with the DSC-W330).
Media card slot
For convenient storage and sharing of your images, the DSC-W330 accepts Memory Stick Duo/Memory Stick PRO Duo/Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo media (sold separately).
SD Card Functionality
Sony SD memory cards are the perfect solution for storing and sharing your digital content such as high-quality photos, videos, music, and more.

2. Easy to use
3. Quick shutter
4. Large viewscreen
5. Good zoom
I did my research and even went into Best Buy to ask about the best cameras. If you are looking for a basic point and shoot, you will likely be very happy with this purchase. It is a great price for the quality camera.
The only reason i gave it a 4 star and not a five is because the auto smile shutter is not as accurate as a samsung we purchased and the menu features are not as intutive as those on some other cameras. Also the battery has to be removed for charging and one has to purchase a charger from sony if you dont decide to remove the battery. i think the charger needs to come with it.
I like the fact that it uses a SD card and has other options.
The LCD screen is really nice and big compared to other cameras.
Has great pictures even in low light.
Other than that it is a great point and shoot and one of the best we had. I recently purchased a samsung for my mother in law but i think this is better.
Also Amazon got me a better deal than sony direct and even shipped a lot faster full marks to you amazon thats why we are loyal.
Cheers and good luck on the camera.
Like I stated in the title, I think this camera is great but just for beginners. It is a good price for what it has to offer. This camera is best for parents/grandparents who are trying to capture their family memories, preteens who want their first camera, or just someone who wants camera to bring with them just to have. It is an excellent choice!
But for those who are looking for a challenging camera, or are amateur but serious photographers, this isn't the camera for you.
Here are the pros and cons I found for myself personally...
-Intelligent Auto Adjustment
-Chargeable battery and charger
-Excellent video quality
-Compact and lightweight
-Shutter speed isn't very fast
-Isn't very challenging
-Limited settings so I was constantly having to change the settings each place I went
