and has long been the favorite for those with the same hobby as I

Donald C., Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: I use this particular model in motion activated trail cameras that I make myself, the pictures are unmatched in quality, the flash is more than adequate for my use, and has long been the favorite for those with the same hobby as I.

Excellent Zeiss lens and very low noise

J. Capobianco, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • Summary: There are some good Ebay deals($29-75) on this camera. It has a useful and sharp 31-93mm zoom and a low noise sensor.No IS but works very well for older technology. Should have included a USB to RCA plug for the video playback but dosen't. Other than that a good everday camera.

Still an Affordable and Easy to Use Camera that's Good Enough for a Lot of Us

Fr. Charles Erlandson, Amazon
9 December 2010
  • Summary: I realize this is late in the game to add a review to a camera that isn't up to date. But there are probably a lot of people like me who don't mind buying gently used older cameras for a good price. The fact is that I've had this camera for several years now, and for the kind of basic photography that I and most other people are into, this camera is probably sufficient.

Ashamed it's a Sony!

Michael A Trujillo "Mike T.", Amazon
9 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera because of Sony's history of making excellent products. Boy was I disappointed! After a few weeks the camera would turn off by itself, flash internal diagnostic malfunctions, and basically just refuse to work. Not only is it useless but it burns through batteries (rechargeable and alkalines) faster than the speed of light. I usually got less than 15 pictures or four minutes of video.

On/Off problems..don't buy

Joe B. "Joe B.", Amazon
7 December 2009
  • Summary: After reading some of the other reviews here, I feel I must also report on/off problems with this camera. Sometimes it works fine, but most of the time when you turn the camera on it will either briefly power up and then immediately shut off or stay on for a few seconds and then shut off. I have changed batteries repeatedly, so it isn't dead batteries, although it does seem to suck the life out of batteries very quickly.

Typical Problems

B. Hargreaves, Amazon
18 December 2007
  • Summary: My daughters camera seems to be experiencing the same problem as others. She bought it at 14 years old with her own $ to take on a school field trip to Washington. She took about 50 shots and then the power button would only work randomly or the lense would freeze coming out or closing. Being an electrical engineer I would guess that the motor for the cover/lens draws so much current that the battery voltage drops so low that the camera shuts off.

Pretty decent camera

C. Sakamoto "Hoplow", Amazon
23 August 2007
  • Summary: Pretty good all around camera for what it is. Battery usage is not bad, don't use rechargeables or you will be disappointed in the performance. You can take lots of pictures with a 1gig care before its full. Uses AA batteries which are easily obtainable almost anywhere. Picture quality is pretty good, focuses pretty easily. Movies are pretty good. Overall an easy to use camera. Rated a 4 because it is inexpensive.

THE BEST CAMERA EVER!

Margaret C. Hoffert, Amazon
14 August 2007
  • Summary: I love this camera, it takes great pictures, it is so user friendly, and is built like a tank but is really light. I have taken exelent pictures with the open shutter mode on the camera and the color options are awesome. This camera is so easy to use, you turn it on, you press the button and you have a picture, press menu and you have all of these settings at your figertips!

Great camera, when it works!!!

Roger Dreger, Amazon
31 July 2007
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my first digital camera, an Olympus that I loved but needed less time between shots and more megapixels. I have been disappointed with this camera. My camera has stopped working again for the second time, and is now out of warranty. Like other customers the first time the lens locked up while extended and I sent it in for repair. Sony to it's credit repaired it under warranty even though I lost proof of purchase.
