Sony W1 Questions

Today I decided to place an order for a W1. It seems to be pretty good. Now I have a couple of questions. 1) Is there a shutter priority mode? I like to be able to manually set the shutter speed for fast action scenes, or just to shoot fast enough to avoid handshake. 2) Is there spot focusing? Or just center focusing? I really like spot focusing. 7900 doesn't have it.

It has Multi AF, Center AF or fixed focus. The V1 i had went to 800ISO, if you turn the ISO up a little more may you can set a faster shutter speed. I think the only priority settings are the "scene modes" there may be an action ssetting in the scene modes.

I bought Sony TV 55" and don't know how to use the stand which came with it

unfortunately there are several variations in the assembly of television stands, fortunately this site has video questions. For assembly questions it's best to use video and pictures and we respond to you the same way. Most time the stands snap or screw into place. Please refer to the user manual if possible or please repost you question or update this one using video/images or a combination of.

Good luck and thanks

All my captured images are white. The LCD shows a nice image, also the video works

Most likely the shutter is jammed open - the shutter is not used for video or preview, which is why they work OK. Camera will need to be serviced, either shutter repaired, or more likely replaced. May be marginal, as the shutter is part of the lens unit complete! Look out for one with a damaged LCD on Ebay and make one good camera from the two if you are good with a screwdriver !

My sony dsc-w1 got very wet, caught in a rainstorm and did not have the case. I have left it dry out for 4 days and it turns on, lcd works, can read memory stick and display old pictures on the lcd. But...

Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture.

I've seen a lot of DSC-W1 cameras where the power switch/shutter button assembly goes bad. This is most likely the case.

DSC-W1 Focus Problems

Try taking some flash pictures (in fairly good light) in Manual Mode @ 1/500sec to rule that out though. Use "Center" or "Spot" autofocus. If you don't have a tripod, then use the self timer for these tests. If camera shake can be ruled out, and the camera has focusing problems even in bright light, then that unit is trashed. Sorry to hear that the Sony service center couldn't fix it right the first time. Demand a replacement.

Blurry pictures

There is a well documented problem with the W1 (and its brother, the P100). If you are shooting in good light, you will have no problem. If you are shooting in low light or flash, you will encounter various degrees of blurred photos. Unlike most cameras, the W1 has only two f-stops (f2.8 and f5.2). So the camera must select one or the other (nothing in between). The firmware in the camera will try to select f5.2 as long as it can in low light. This results in a slow shutter speed. And with flash you usually end up with a shutter speed of 1/40th of a second. A slow shutter speed is the cause of the blurred photos. If you can hold the camera perfectly still under low light conditins (and flash) you will get good photos. If you use the cameras manual mode and manually select a faster shutter speed you will get good photos. It appears that Sony could fix the problem with a firmware change so that the camera made better use of the ISO settings along with the f-stop selections. However, they have not done so.
