The W-series has done really well in the past couple years, blending a diminutive size with stylish brushed-metal body and snappy performance. The W620 comes in at $10 more than the W610, yet we aren't sure that's money well-spent. The zoom gets an upgrade to 5x, yet loses the wider 26mm and f2.8 of the W610. The camera is also quite a bit larger and still doesn't have image stabilization. 720p HD video is included, however, so if that's a necessity then $10 extra is probably worth it.

Hi, I’m Andy. I’ve been taking pictures for just about as long as I’ve been old enough to hold a camera. I studied photography in community college after high school but was encouraged to follow a career path that was more stable. I do gigs here and there on the side but never took the leap to focus my efforts full-time. When Pam reached out to me through a mutual friend, I jumped on the opportunity to be a writer. Favorite type of photography: macro and street.
