Compact yet capable, the Sony W50 promises to be another winner from Sony. The DSC-W50 is one of many camera models to offer a high sensitivity mode.

Though the Sony W50 doesn’t offer any direct manual exposure control, the camera’s extensive LCD menu system does offer quite a bit of dsd-w50 control with image contrast, sharpness, and color options.
