Summary: I purchased this camera NEW at Staples when it was $149; Best Buys had it at same price. I took vewry good care of it and was happy with it for three years. Then problems began with the lens and zoom. Lens went in and out on it own, locked, using the zoom caused camera power to shut down.
Summary: For a point and shoot camera, I expect this thing to take decent pictures consistently. It doesn't. I bought it for my girlfriend just over a year ago, and I still feel a little embarassed. Most of out pictures are taken at night, and indoors.
Summary: The camera's not too bad. Eventhough it's a bit "flimsy feeling" because of the plastic case, it seemed to work relatively well for the 20 shots I took. Why 20? Well, i quickly found the "deal-killer"... The shutter-sync speed for the flash appears to default to 1/40. This is ridiculous!
Summary: I bought the Cybershot DSC30 6MP camera as a replacement for my 3-year-old 5MP Sony. Sadly, I have to say that my older camera took much better pictures than the new one. The construction of DSCW30 is cheap (plastic) and rather flimsy. The camera is made in China.
Summary: Ich habe mir die Sony gekauft, da meine alte Fuji Finepix nach 4 Jahren den Geist aufgegeben hat. Das Preisleistungsverhältnis hatte mich überzeugt und zum Kauf bewegt. Im großen und ganzen ist die Kamera okay, einfach zu bedienen, kompakt, handlich, mit vielen Funktionen und die Makrofunktion ist...
