The sony w530 digital camera is based around a 1/2.3″-type, 14.1 effective megapixel Sony SuperHAD CCD image sensor with RGB color filter array, coupled to a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar branded 4x optical zoom lens. For 4:3 aspect-ratio shooting, the sony w530 lens offers a 35mm-equivalent range from a generous 26mm wide angle to a moderate 105mm telephoto, while 16:9 shooting yields a sensor crop and 28 – 114mm equivalent focal range. The sony w530 lens has a two-step aperture with ND filter, which offers either F2.7 or F8.0 at wide angle; at telephoto the maximum aperture is F5.7, and the minimum aperture isn’t stated. The sony w530 autofocusing is possible to a minimum of just four centimeters at wide angle, or 60 centimeters at telephoto.
Another unique digital camera was developed and its the Konica Minolta Dimage Z2. With its uniquness, compared to sony w530, Konica Minolta Dimage Z2 lens replaces the 5.8-58mm lens – the effective focal lengths being identical due to the Konica Minolta Dimage Z2 slightly larger sensor size. Konica Minolta Dimage Z2 maximum aperture ranges from f/2.8 to f/3.5, depending on the lens zoom setting. Focus is specified as ranging from 1.6 feet (0.5 meters) to infinity in normal mode, with a macro setting ranging from 3.9 to 47.2 inches (10 to 120 centimeters). The Konica Minolta Dimage Z2 is equipped with an impressive 10x, 6.3-63mm lens, the equivalent of a 38-380mm lens on a 35mm camera. This represents a range from a moderate wide-angle to a very substantial telephoto. Though the Konica Minolta Dimage Z2 normally judges focus from a large area in the center of the frame, a Spot AF mode is also available, which determines focus from one of three possible spot-AF hotspots, arranged across the middle of the frame. To activate Spot-AF mode of Konica Minolta Dimage Z2, press and hold down the center button of the arrow pad in any non-movie capture mode.

Here is a summary of sony w530 review from a satisfied customer:
sony does it again!
my daughter has two little girls which are the lights of her life. she was taking pictures of them daily as they were at that stage where they were learning to do everything. the oldest of the two was quite intrigued by picture taking and would take the camera and mimic her mother. to make a long story short, the camera was dropped on the floor and ceased working. my daughter was very sad. her birthday was less than a week away, so i stared searching for a camera to replace the broken one. i came across this sony cyber shot and knew it was the perfect gift, as it was pink. i told her i had purchased it but did not expect it to arrive for a few days. much to my delight, it arrived on her birthday.although she knew i had purchased the camera, she was surprised when she opened her gift. the camera itself is very pretty, it is the perfect shade of pink. it is very easy to use and takes exceptional pictures. we would recomend this camera to everyone, young and old alike. documenting your memories has never been easier or prettier!
