Summary: This camera takes great photos and is super user friendly. I love to take nano shots and try to take beautiufl photos, this camera is very helpful with both. And compact for the kind of photos it is capable of. The only problems I have had with it, are cosmetic. The little plastic cover on the side (that covers up the hole for the cord that connects it to the computer) will no longer stay closed, the little peg is supposed to pop into place but after only a year it will...
Summary: I am disappointed just after one month of use. I have to ship it back for repairs because the flash will not pop out as it should. I found out the hard way while taking photos at an event I had been hired to do. Fortunately, most of the room was well lighted. It wouldhave been a disaster if all of the lighting had been poor. There is also an issue with the (image stabilization)super steady shot. If you target moves even slightly before your shot, your photo is blurry.
Summary: I have just (Nov 22) purchased a Sony Cybershot DSC-H3 after comparing functionality with the Canon equivalent - it was a tradeoff and $$ won by a whisker! Good news - the camera feels comfortable, the lens is good, it shoots easily in point/shoot mode, and there are a plethora of options should one want to become more adventurous! Bad news - over the Merry Christmas snapping of photos the flash unit suddenly stopped popping up automatically, regardless of setting!
Summary: I really have some issues with this camera. First when you are using the LCD viewfinder it is so low resolution that everything is blurry and noisy just until you are ready to take the picture. You can't judge the picture or who is in it since it is all blurry! For some reason halfway through taking the pictures, there was a red saturated tint to every background. The menus are so confusing.
Decent pictures, but control knob is in a Rotten place

Summary: We bought this camera as our primary digital still camera. Overall, the camera takes reasonable pictures, but we've lost MANY shots because the primary control knob, the one that selects the camera mode, is located on the right edge of the camera directly beside the shutter button. When reaching for the shutter, the index finger has a tendency to slide against this control knob, CHANGING THE PICTURE MODE, which means we're taking pictures in a different mode than we had...
Summary: This camera take o.k. pictures but I do not recommend it esp. for the price. See reasons below 0. I bought this mainly because I wanted it for the face detection. Well the faces are invariably over exposed in the auto mode which I use 90% of the time (just like every average user) just like they are with my 4 year old dsc w7. Who has the time to set all the settings when you are trying to capture a moment when a 3 year old is doing something cute? 1.
Summary: hoje em dia é perigoso andar com maquina custosa que se assemelha a trambolho. esta foi feita sob medida: cabe no bolso e é leve por um custo acessivel. Valeu a pena a aquisição,zoom suave a unica reclamação é a proteção contra raios solares : é maior que a camera de resto tudo é aceitavel.
Pros: Pequena e leve
Cons: Manual digital mal traduzido pela Sony, Menu na maquina poderia ser mais pratico e explicito
