Good Small Camera with Panoramic Shots

Summary: I bought this camera largely for the ability to take panoramic shots. It takes decent regular shots and video as well. At first I was very enthusiastic about the camera and took it on business trip to Las Vegas. I took many shots with the camera and many on Panoramic mode in parks like the Sahara National Preserve, Red Rock Canyon (just outside of Las Vegas) and Joshua Tree National Park. Panoramas are easy to take and produce good quality images.
Summary: Decent camera. Bought it for my daughter as a point and shoot. I just dont like the long flashes and the double flashing. Also it doesnt use the standard memory card. However it takes good pics and if your not bothered by the dual flashes the camera is a good buy.
Summary: This is a quality constructed compaact camera with a lot of features at a fair price, but the image quality isn't that great. It never has taken a really sharp picture. Some images are better than others, but I believe the optics are cheap.
Excerpt: Sony is known for making a lot of products, and their point and shoot lineup is among the more popular products that they have. The W350 is the among the middle of their 2010 lineup for this style, and I have to say it ranges from very impressive to disappointing in some parts. What impresses me most is certainly the size and ease of use of the camera. It is amazingly thin and compact, it actually makes other cameras which I thought were compact, look chunky and fat.
Excerpt: It is a simple camera with no bells and whistles. I had no problems whatsoever for the last three years - no reboot, no menu freeze, no picture drops or awkward sounds. I have not used this camera for video but I am sure this camera would have equally good with those as well. The camera is good -clear and crisp, pretty good for a small digital camera. The volume is excellent, never had to bother shouting on a shoot and same for the sound reception.
Summary: I have had this camera two years and would definitely not get this one again. It takes acceptable photos, nothing like I would expect for the difference from my last camera to this one. The video is ok, but I kept having issues with it going in and out of focus, with other cameras with a much lower mp I never had that problem.
Excerpt: I've used the DSC-W350 for a year and it is a really great camera. 14.1 megapixels give you sharp images like portraits and landscapes in good conditions. It's small and lightweight, is very nicely designed, and has an easy menu for adjusting while in manual mode. It is surprisingly good at macro for it's price range, and is better than many other compacts that I have come across. Very good for a first camera, it will get you interested into photography.
Okay and simple but feels cheap and panorama view is limited.

Summary: The camera is okay, seems to do the job but it feels like a cheap camera, poorly made. The other complaint is that the panorama mode greatly cuts off part of the image. It's not like you're taking a bunch of standard pictures and stitching them together automatically. Instead it's like just the center of the shots are stitched together so panorama mode is a little misleading. I wouldn't run to get this camera unless you're not very picky then its fine.
Excerpt: It has some interesting and creative features, more than a normal compact camera. It works very well in every situation but not in low light conditions without flash, because pictures are grainy. Image stabilizer works well.
Summary: I have always been a fan of Sony products, so after reading and reading and READING reviews for all digital cameras in my price range, I narrowed it down to this one. The first time I used it was on a 9-day trip to the Carolina Coast. I am not an expert photographer. This purchase was to satisfy your average camera needs (girls night out, family get togethers, vacation, my cats).
