A considerable-quality camera in sub-par hardware

  • Excerpt: I originally received this camera as a high school graduation gift.  It's very high-quality when you get it out of the box: photos look crisp and high-res; any higher-res video you take looks gorgeous and vibrant (with sound, too; eat that, Vivitar!); even VGA-quality pictures look nice, coming out small, but beautiful.  In bad light, though, some pictures may end up coming out very grainy; you'll have to watch for that as you take photos with this.

  • Excerpt: I'm the most tech-dumb person any of my friends know.  I can break or be unable to work even the most simple of  inherited this camera when I got together with my other half as mine was so past done and we couldn't afford a new one.  I have to say, it's not my favourite camera ever.  It's sluggish, it's slow, it's blurry even when you try real hard not to shake and you're pretty heavy.  It's also not great without the flash turned on.

Very small buttons/ Good CAmera

  • Excerpt: I've had this camera for a while. I like the pictures, the quality of pictures the ease of downloading the pictures to the computer. YOu can just take the memory stick and put it in your computer or printer and download the pictures. What I don't like is the menu is extensive and I still don't understand or know what all the settings are.

Almost Great

  • Summary: I'm having similar problems as other users with my camera right now... I was actually reading the customer reviews because I was considering re-getting the same camera because I've loved it so much for the past year! But apparently the lens getting stuck and needing to turn it on and off constantly is something that's part of the camera rather than just part of MY camera...

good at first but didn't last long

  • Summary: i purchased this camera about 8 months ago and i loved it at first. the price was right for my budget and it at 6 megapixels, took great pictures. It was very easy to operate and even easier to upload the pictures to my computer. There was no software to install, just plug in the usb cord and it uploads the pictures. My problem that i had with the camera started about 3 months ago, after i had only had the camera about 5 months.

  • Summary: For the price, it's a good camera provided subjects remain still. Be sure you can return the camera, without any charge, so you can determine if it meets your needs.
  • Pros: Easy to use. Clear menus and manuals. Powerful flash. Doesnt need Sony memory cards.
  • Cons: Does not come with AC adapter, NiMH batteries, charger or have an A/V outlet.
