Small but poor image quality

  • Summary: Regrettably even a poor Smartphone has better image quality than this camera. Its compact size is no excuse.

Grainy picture, unusable, SONY does not stand behind their products

Kelly C Garner, Amazon

  • Summary: My husband purchased this camera for me, with a warranty from sears. It worked properly for about 6 months before it started showing all pictures with grainy lines. I brought it back to the warranty center four times, Sony refuses to replace unless you return it five times (they just send out the broken one to be "fixed"). Each time it was returned to me, it worked for a few hours and then had the exact same issue again.

HORRIBLE!!! I'm disappointed!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 March 2011
  • Summary: I used to have a Sony Cybershot DSCN1, THE BEST CAMERA EVER and after 5 years, I decided to change because the pictures were more and more blurred. After long research, I bought the DSC-W310 hoping I would get the same quality pictures (maybe not exactly the same because of the difference of prices, but quality nonetheless).

Worse than my 3-4 years old 7.2 mp Cybershot

  • Summary: I was going to give this to my best friend as a birthday gift but not anymore. I wanted to make sure I gave her a decent camera that works at least as good as mine so I took a sample picture in my room. I looked at the picture from the LCD screen and was surprised at the graininess and blurriness of the picture when I zoomed in. I decided to take a look on my computer hoping I was wrong but I wasn't. The quality is awful.

The camera has screen freeze problem, but the company still charged me 15% restocking fee

  • Summary: This camera drove me crazy with the screen freeze problem over and over again, so I had to return it just 3 day after I got them, I even wrote a letter to the company to explain the camera has this unbelievable problem, because the guy on the phone told me if the camera has problem, they won't charge restocking fee, but they still charged me $15, I guess no matter what reason you return, they would charge 15% anyway.

In an technological age, you'd expect better

  • Summary: This camera is great, if your surroundings are great. However, if you happen to be outside where it is bright, or inside where it is dim, or any situation where there is movement, your pictures will come out blurry, yellow, too dark, or with odd shadows. Essentially, you can expect the same picture quality from one of those old-school disposable cameras.

  • Summary: Today I bought the DSC-W310 12.1 mega pixel to replace my functional 7.1 mega pixel Kodak EasyShare C703 camera. After taking numerous comparison photographs from both cameras, a noted difference existed between the two. All the Sony's photos appeared in need of focus while the lesser Kodak camera produced crisp clear photos. Total of 45 pictures from each camera were taken in different modes of operation. Big disappointment with the Sony camera.

Picture quality worse than even 7 mega pixel camera

Satyadhir Singh "u235 Maverick", Amazon
11 October 2010
  • Summary: This is one of the worse sony product I believe. I bought this camera due to its low price as I wanted something for very casual outings. My friend had a Kodak 8 mega pixel camera. This being 12.1 couldn't even match half of 8 MP camera. Kodak was even cheaper than this but picture was good. Specifically the night shots were really worse. Even in day light the pictures were not showing up clearly. Returning this camera after 4 days.
