  • Summary: This camera was top of the line when bought. Worked great for many years. Then one day it dropped and it was time to upgrade. Has a unique memory card which was a hassle so minus one star.

  • Summary: The Sony Cybershot is a good family of cameras. This one is a decent entry level camera considering its age. Even though the resolution of cameras has almost doubled in the five years its been out it still preforms well.

Love this camera, but it kills batteries quickly

  • Summary: I really like this camera it does't have that annoying face recognition software, the pictures come out great and it is a good value, the video has audio with it and actually can run for a long time. The only problem is that it will take the charge out of regular batteries in about an hour.

  • Summary: I purchased this for my wife and she loves it. There is nothing complicated about it. It is not a DSLR, but it takes quality pictures, it's small, and it's easy to use.

  • Summary: This is an attractive camera. i dont like how it focuses. Also, i like that it shoots nice videos and has enough space to hold a good amount of them. i dont like however that i cant zoom while i am shooting a video. I have to zoom first and then shoot. But its small, very attractive, good price.

Good Cam

  • Summary: If the camera is a gift for grandma/grandpa, or even your kid, this is a great present and like all Sony camera's very easy to use. If you want something a little thinner and that does not use AA batteries, but rather a Sony lithium, go with the W50.
  • Pros: It's a great camera by Sony. It has more than enough megapixels for the average user, zoom us the average in the Industry. The camera is really good for those who only want a point and shoot. It also does a great job at taking pictures in dark areas, and I mean black dark, the red light and the f...
  • Cons: The only con is that it uses 2 AA batteries. The battery goes REALLY quick.

A Good Camera For Casual Users

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera at a computer products outlet, and as it came out a while ago, it was pretty cheap. It cost about $100 by the time I purchased it, which was a big factor - I'm a poor college student, so I needed something cheap. The camera has worked well for my needs.
  • Pros: good picture quality, ease of use, compact
  • Cons: no delete all function

Duzvi, Ciao
25 February 2007
  • Excerpt: I have had digital cameras before, but with this sony Cybershot ,its so good the quality strikes as fabulous on all occassions. It can take good photos be it professional or holiday photos.
  • Pros: This is the best camera one can get especially if you are on holiday and want to take as many photos as possible !
  • Cons: You cannot do a poster of AO size unless you have to have a 4gig card but then probably this camera will not support 4gig i suppose .
