Summary: I just received my camera in time for vacation - well the pink paint is chipped off in several places and two deep scratches on the lens! How can anyone send something like this a customer? It would look great if it didn't arrive damaged.
Summary: This camera lasted a week before it quit working! Unfortuniatly I was oversees when it quit and it was a year before I came back into the states and could turn it in on warrenty! I still feel Sony or at least Amazon should take it back or in the least, repair it!
Summary: Sony should be ashamed. As a longtime leader in electronics, this camera has developed a reputation as being problematic. Just look in the eBay listings and you'll see countless DSC-W220 cameras being sold for parts. WHY?
Summary: This was an okay camera until it broke due to exploding internal parts! I bought it in fall of last year for a trip to Sweden and it was okay. Then this year we took it to Japan. We went on a hike and tried to take a picture of a shrine and heard a very loud "pop" sound from the camera.
Summary: We purchased this camera in September 2009. It no longer works. Through normal use, this camera has "corrosion" damage. The bill to fix? $250. It's more than the camera cost. Sony customer service has been the pits through all of this too. Nobody cares about fixing the problem.
Summary: Bought this camera since it had good reviews and have a couple friends that like the camera. Took about 50 pictues and all were blurry. I called Sony support but they did not help at all. So returned the camera. I am not sure if I got a lemon or if camera truly takes bad pictures.
Summary: This camera has the worst battery life I have ever experienced. I have had many Sony digital cameras. I have to charge this camera or at the very least check the charge level before every use.
Summary: The Canon Ixus is a much better camera. This camera can't cope with dim lighting and is constantly over exposed. You are paying for the Sony name and not a quality camera. I'm selling it instantly!
poor quality and stopped working. My last Sony camera

Summary: I cannot recommend this canera and am revising my policy of always buying Sony products. This is my 4th Sony compact and I have been pleased withe quality and design before now. They usually last a couple of years. With this model, the quality of the controls was much less than previous models.
Summary: I brought this after looking at all the positive reviews, and am so disappointed. I can never get decent action shots, so am constantly missing out on pictures of my kids running around, such as today in the snow on their sledge, not one decent photo out of about 20 that I took, ended up just giving...
