Shop for another camera

Jonathan Hu, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: I've owned a Sony Cyber-shot 3.3 mega-pixel camera since 2000. This camera took very sharp and great photos even with a low 3.3 mega-pixel resolution. I got tired of lugging this bulky camera around when I travelled so I opted for a smaller camera and since I was so happy with the Sony Cyber-shot with the Carl Zeiss lens, I stuck with the brand and bought the DSC-W350 expecting the same quality. Boy was I DISAPPOINTED!

As good as you can expect from Sony

RustedChainsaw, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: This camera is definitely a good looking, standard-sized, standard fare Sony style camera. It's plenty responsive to commands which is a plus, and the battery life is best described as "average". The optical zoom is supplemented by a useless digital zoom feature, which is the equivalent of blowing the picture up using photoshop or other photo-editing software. The main reason I don't like this camera or Sony cameras in general is because of the memory format they use.

Good camera bad conectivity

oconel, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very good camera and I'm very satisfied with the pictures it takes, I like that it's tiny and can take it everywhere with me. But the connectivity for this camera is very bad: - it doesn't use a mini-usb or a micro-usb port, instead you have to carry around this bulky cable http://www.amazon.com/ABC-Products%C2%AE-Original-connection-Cyber-Shot/dp/B003X9U6OK/ref=sr_1_19?

Looks great on paper, sometime takes great pictures

W. Bailey, Amazon
20 November 2010
  • Summary: We researched this camera pretty well, and it seemed like a good fit for what we wanted, and it does sometimes take great pictures. But usually it misses the shot, taking too long to decide what mode to use and often seems like it can't focus even on well lit slow moving objects. The battery will not last for even an event of a couple of hours and replacements are pretty pricey. I am thinking about contacting customer service at Sony to complain about this camera.

Took back

jeres, Amazon

  • Summary: My husband bought me this camera for my birthday. After almost 3 months of feeling like I would "get used to it" or "maybe if I read the instruction manual one more time.." I took it back (thanks to Costco's liberal return policy). The two main reasons I didn't like it were: the shutter speed was really slow and right after you take a picture, it only shows it on the screen for like 2 seconds, not enough time to see if you got a good picture.

Not for Children or Action

Walmart
14 June 2010
  • Summary: I got this camera for my 1 and 5 year olds. It is not good for the baby. All the pics are blurry. You just can't tell a baby to stop and smile like this camera expects. Also not good for my 5 year olds soccer games. Nothing turns out unless they are frozen - then yes it's a decent camera. I love the panarama and smile decection modes but I need a camera that will take pics of subjects that are moving.. Doesn't even have an action setting.

Not very good

  • Summary: Picture quality is shameful. My old Canon is still much better than this. My recommendation would be to avoid this.

Poor image quality, short battery life, waste of money

A. Person, Amazon
9 June 2012
  • Summary: I previously owned a Sony camera, and was impressed with the quality of the image, as even at 4 megapixels the quality Carl Zeiss lens ensured decent images. As such, when it came to moving on to a newer and supposedly better camera, I was keen to choose Sony/Carl Zeiss again. However, this model has been a big disappointment. The image quality is poor, and the camera often has to be 'wiggled' to get it to auto-focus.

Sony DSC W350 Black

Argy Bargy, Amazon
5 February 2012
  • Summary: My first digital camera was a Sony Cybershot DSC P5 and ever since then apart from my DSLR I have not looked at any other make for a point and shoot camera. But this is a different story and probably reflects how a decent digital company can damage its reputation by lack of standardisation, quality control and use of cheap components. I bought this camera a year and a half ago for my wife.
