Get to know this camera--you'll be surprised at the capacity

Summary: After I dropped and hurt my DSLR EOS, I knew I didn't want a big camera again, but i was addicted to the qualities, especially zoom capacity and ability to manipulate speed and aperture. I shoot under varying conditions, indoors and out.
Summary: Here's a short version of my review: What I love most about this camera: the zoom, stabilizer, WIFI, grip, panorama, fast shutter What I wasn't so excited about: The 18MP quality has a lot of detail loss.
Summary: I recently purchased this camera after having spent the last several weeks studying various small size super zoom digital cameras. [My Canon was pretty old (8 megapixels; 8.0 zoom; 2.8" LCD 420K (could not see in bright light); and very bulky] This camera was previously a little more expensive than...
Easy to transfer pics wirelessly; lots of shooting options; would be 5 stars but for flash location

Summary: I can't comment on pic quality when printed yet - just got it and still trying out the options. Main reason for the review is that I read a number of reviews where the person could not get the wireless transfer to work. I found it easy, although the instructions aren't clear at all.
Summary: I love the camers. It takes fantastic pictures even in low light and I have shaky hands. It does not come with an instruction manual, you have to go online and download one if you want one. They are not easy to read and understand and the camara is menu driven and hard to find your way through.
Replacement for DSLR? Yes and no depending on your needs.

Summary: I wanted to write this review for all those angst ridden camera buyers out there. I was one of you until very recently when I finally pulled the trigger on this camera. This is more about the use of the camera than the camera itself.
Excerpt: Most my shots are for indoor basketball/no flash .... shooting at 1/400 to 1/600 .... in gyms that range from mediocre to excellent lighting. In this genre, compact, high zoom .... I've used the Canon, Nikon, Fuji & Pansasonic variants.
Very versatile camera/video recorder, has DSLR like shutter performance, robust automatic settings.

Summary: I have had many digital cameras over the years both point and shoot and DSLR. Mostly from the names you would expect: Nikon, Canon, Pentax, and Olympus. I hadn't frankly ever thought of Sony for a camera although I have had Sony camcorders that were very good.
Summary: Upfront I'm gonna tell the truth; I returned this camera. Not because it's not great; just because it's not great for me. I tend to shoot more close up, indoor and low light stuff with my point and shoot and my S95 with its 10MP sensor so completely outperforms this new Sony in those situations that...
