Summary: I purchased this camera in January, and have regretted it ever since. Everything is worked via touchscreen, which is great for my iPhone, but with this camera, it means that real time and effort is required to change picture settings. This is worst when it comes to video. With my old T-100 (which I loved) you could flip a switch and be instantly in video mode. With the T-700, you need to turn the camera on, then start working the touch screen to get there.
Summary: I was a big Sony fan until I got this camera. I returned it and got a Canon. The touchscreen and the features are really cool, but the image quality was terrible. I could not believe Sony marketed this camera. I even went to a store to try another one, thinking it was just a defective item, but it wasn't. You can tell from the LCD screen that the image quality is bad. Please try it and compare with other brands or the Sony DSC-W150 before buying.
Summary: The only digital cameras I've owned have been Cybershots.. bought this one as an upgrade to my Sony dsc-w70. The photos had a red/orange tint that I was not able to get rid of after adjusting the settings and colors. I charged the battery completely to play around with the touch screen and get to know the settings/controls and it drained the battery dead VERY QUICKLY.
Summary: This is the worst camera I have used in years. I use a Nikon D3, a Leica M8 and C-Lux 3 and have used Canon Point and Shoots for years - this is the worst camera I have seen for at least 3 years. The image quality is terrible - the colors are the worst, there are so many spots and noisy glitches in the images and focus is so soft I am shocked. This camera sucks.
Summary: Was looking for a smaller point and shoot to use in place of my Canon DSLR for the quick shots and this one looked to be a nice package. Offers some very nice features and the price was not all that bad either. But once I saw the picture quality I was not at all impressed. I tried several times with all types of settings and could never get a decent indoor shot with or without the flash. Pictures looked very washed out and grainey.
