Summary: This product as they prescribed when they put in e bay to sell. Everything as they said,I got this camera on time as they promised.I had used this camera almost two months, it is really good. I bought this camera cause I need battery charger which I had one camera like this one already. Plus they have another extra battery too. This product is worth for what I paid for,excellent...
Summary: I really love this camera because it's a definite upgrade from my 5 mega pixel camera. I wish the sound was better on the mic though. It feels so small and delicate I always feel I'm going to break it. Other than that I really like it. It takes great pictures. Just remember to buy a memory card with plenty of room if you want to take large pictures and film videos.
Summary: My son wanted this camera to take to college and he just loves it. simple to shoot and hight pix makes a very clear picture. When i used it for action shots it seems to be alittle slow in the shutter speed , but he says "nah" SO there it is.. Good camera at a great price.
Summary: This is a good little camera for everyday use. I am an old film shooter so this digital camera is new to me. Took 300 shots of my house in and out for insurance record. Worked great and downloaded onto my computer with no problem. Wish it had a view finder. Hard to get use to looking at a little screen. For a good camera with a view finder you need to spend $500 and up so for the price the Sony is great.
Summary: I bought this camera last week after getting frustrated with the ultra-short battery life with NiMH batteries on my Kodak cameras. - The camera is slick! Very small and very smooth operation Goodies like on screen live histogram helps you capture better images - Very Long battery life - I took the battery out of the box and used it without charging it. Captured about 80 shots so far (most with flash) and it still is showing about 3/4 battery available.
Summary: The DSC S980 is the 2nd Cybershot I've purchased. The first one lasted 4 years before it was time for an upgrade. I tested the camera on a Disney World vacation before writing this review. The camera itself is light and compact. It lacks a view finder (great for sunny days) but compensates with an above average sized LCD screen. It runs on a series K Sony lithium ion battery (included). I got about 250 pictures on the initial charge.
Summary: This camera is great for still pics, they are very crisp. The sound for the camera, however, leaves much to be desired. Even up close, you can barely make out what is being said when in play-back mode. When hooked up to my TV you have to turn the TV sound way up to hear it. This was definitly disappointing. Again though, the still pics are good, I'm a nanny for 3 young kids and get great pics of them with it!
