good picture quality, cute, but definitely a little slow

Summary: i like the camera (got it in blue), but i certainly don't love it. the quality of the pictures is great, and it takes excellent pictures without a flash (as others have mentioned). it's not so small that it's hard to handle, but also easily drops into a pocket.
Summary: EVERYTHINGS ON THIS CAMERA IS OK, PIXLES,FLASH, THE ZOOM, SIZE, COLOR, PICTURE QUALITY, HD VIDEO, BUT THE ONLY THING THAT I DONT LIKE IT, ITS THE GPS, BECAUSE YOU SHOULD BE IN AN OPEN PLACE IF NOT, DOUESNT WORK. I THINK SONY WILL WORK ON THAT IN A NEARLY FUTURE.
Summary: To be honest, not a bad camera, but it has been built to such a feeble standard that I was able to crack the screen by sitting on it - and I only weigh about 140lb. Yes, it's my own stupid fault to some extent - but I've had plenty of other compact digital cameras that have been built to a far...
Summary: I am wondering why almost new new camera is offering an optical viewfinder? It has stopped me from upgrading from my old DSC-V1 which still takes excellent pictures, but is lacking somewhat in resolution.
Summary: was excited to get this camera mainly for the GPS feature. The GPS works poorly. I have to constantly wait about 3-5 minutes for the camera to get GPS signal even when I'm outside nowhere near buildings.. I bought this camera for my Thailand vacation...
Summary: I am a fairly experienced film and digital hotographer and based on the specs and some reviews took it as my main camera for a three week Scandinavian and Baltic trip. I did not want to lug around an SLR. That was a big mistake. I took many great shots, but had to discard many and missed many.
Summary: I am a GIS Specialist, just returned from a 2 week archaeological expedition in Eastern and Southern Mongolia. I bought this camera to simplify data collection, and it takes beautiful shots, but the GPS is just complete garbage.
Like Sony features, but not so much picture quality, video lag time

Summary: Wish Sony has more level of picture compression adjustment. Pictures are overly processed could be due to compression or just the way the camera handle pictures (looks more like water painting when zoomed in).
Summary: I have this Camera and it has a major fault ie overexposing photos after only 2 years of owning it despite hardly using the camera. Ive contacted Sony numerous times and they want £117.00 to repair it. I think this is so unfair.
