A Digital Review of Sony Cybershot DSC-W630

Updated on May 25, 2019

I recently received a very beautiful gift coming from a best friend. It was a cute rose pink Sony Cybershot DSC-W630 digital camera - a perfect gift to people who love to treasure captured moments. It comes with a 4GB MicroSD and a soft Sony pouch.

He planned to buy the latest model of Sony W-series but the W690 has dull colors which he knows I don't really like at all.

He chose the rose pink instead, which I think is really nice and perfect for me.

I love it very much and haven't seen any cons on this slim and stylish camera.

Although digital cameras has lower features compared to DSLR and might take dull pictures sometimes, I don't care at all. All you need is a little timing, a little help on the effects and voila! That's all it takes.

And with its 16.1 megapixels, you can capture a clearer and high resolution photos.

It also has the "Intelligent Scene Selection" feature that helps you change scenes (without pressing any buttons) to adapt on the brightness and contrast of the background so that it will create a clear picturesque – just the way you love it.

The price of this Cybershot model is around Php 8,500.00 here in Philippines.

What I really love about Sony W630 is the four picture effects embedded on it. I think this is really cool especially if you're always outside snapping things and capturing secrets of the hidden world.

It has "Optical Steadyshot" feature that enables you to capture smoother images and blur-free movie footage. So even if you're walking or in the car and would want to snap an image immediately, don't worry because your camera is built to let you enjoy more clear photos.

With these 4 Picture Effects, you can let your imagination and creativity run freely. So since I'm so excited to try something new and different shades of images, I will let you see some of my snapshots taken using these four picture effects.


The monochrome impact of this image is stunning and just elegant. You can choose a single user-selectable colour: GREEN, RED, BLUE or YELLOW.

No need to edit on Photoshop!


This effect will heighten the brightness of an image with a silky look. Looks adorable, right?


I really love to shoot pictures using this effect. It would pop and highlight the colour tone of anything and enhance the visibility of it.


Oh I so love this. It's like editing your image to make it more professional and creative. The interesting visual effect of this makes the image look as if shot with a toy camera. There are five high contrast, tunnel-view shifts:



And the last cool feature is the 360 degrees Sweep Panorama feature.

Yes, you can capture the world 360 degrees. To capture 360 degrees photos, just simply sweep the camera horizontally in circular motion. Then as if magic, the photos will be seamlessly stitched together to create a beautiful and breath-taking 360 degrees panoramic image.

I don't really have any problem with the battery. The last time I went on a 5-day vacation in Angono Rizal, the fully-charged battery lasts until the fifth day. For the size, it's very cute and can slip into your pocket easily.

And the color is just perfect!

So if you’re planning to give a gift to someone special or to yourself, I suggest this cute elegant Sony Cybershot.

Snap awe-inspiring and spectacular pictures with this cute, sleekly-designed Sony Cybershot DSC-W630. It hosts a lot of impressive features and ensures a blur-free images and movies. Also available in colors of gray, black and violet.

This is one gadget that photo enthusiasts will definitely love!

      I have one of these I have never used, I need to get it out. I bought it months ago, then found one at a yard sale I love and never moved on. I will have to use it. Hope we get some snow, didn't get any last year and winter is so ugly without snow isn't it? Thanks for the great review, I will be anxious to use mine now.

      I loved your review. You hit all the positives, plus pointing out some of the negative features, which will be very useful to make an intelligent decision.

      Speaking of intelligent-great feature here with the intelligent option. But, the option that really sold me was the panorama view. I don't think my current camera has it and it is vital in many situations.

      Your photo samples here are great. Rated Up/U/I (ps Love the color, also. :) ) Sharing.
