The W370 is sort of the update to 2009's overall excellent W290; however, the model actually has more in common with the 2010 W350. This metal body camera is 25.5mm thick with dimensions of 99.6mm W X 56.9mm H X 25.5mm D. 3.0” Clear Photo LCD display Generous 3.0”1 (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. It ‘s 3-inch LCD, supports 720p HD movie capture, and has an HDMI output for quickly connecting to an HDTV.
It’s frustrating to think you’ve captured that perfect shot, only to review it later and discover one of your subjects blinked just as you pressed the shutter. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.
Product upgrade and innovation are made to make our life a lot easier so does the DSC-W370. The W370's controls are straightforward. On its top are the power and shutter release buttons. The power button is flush with the body and, though easily pressed, it'll require most users to look to locate it. The remaining controls are on back to the right of the LCD, which was barely bright enough to use in sunny conditions. A zoom rocker that some people may find finicky sits at the top and below it is the shooting mode dial. Playback, Menu, Delete, and a circular directional pad handle all other tasks. In addition to navigating menus, the directional pad can change flash and timer functions, change display information, and activate smile detection. Sony's menu systems remain fairly logical and uncomplicated compared with its cameras prior to 2009's interface changes. Out of the box, it's simple enough to master its controls after a little use.
