Not very good

Summary: product Started to give problem on focus after some months. can not see image on the screen for some second because the lens get out of focus than will suddenly come to normal. Very bad sound quality on recorded materials. and pictures are not stable and not very good when using 3x or above zooming. will not recommend this camera.
Summary: PROS 1) I didn't use this product much, but I suppose most of the camera works well. Look at the other reviews. CONS 1) During video recording, the zooming mechanism creates a sound that then becomes part of the video. BEWARE!!! If you are planning to record videos of yourself talking, avoid this camera. The place that you are video recording has to have a lot of noise so the zooming mechanism sound won't come out in the video.
Summary: This camera was bought as an upgrade for my old dsc-w55. The specs seemed good at 14 mp and 7x zoom. I didn't really want the panoramic feature but it seemed an interesting feature. First thing you notice is that the construction is cheap and plasticky. It is light, but in a bad way. It's also very slow; many times I missed the shot I was going for because the time between pressing the button and a picture being taken is so long.
Summary: I bought some of this items, but one of them is in really bad condition. A problem with the lens, they are very dark. It is not a problem of configuration, I know about photography, it is a problem of the lens
Summary: When I first purchased this camera, I loved it. I was sleek, chic, and took nice pictures. I took about 450 images with it (not a lot) in the first year. Then, less than 30 days after the one-year warranty expired, the shutter and lens ceased functioning properly. It either continuously opens and closes when I turn it on, or it stays stuck open. In either case, I can't take a picture. My research for troubleshooting revealed this is a common problem.
Summary: This is a poor camera with blurry images. On Amazon description, it says it comes with Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens, but its not true! It comes with Sony Lens. It takes nice Pictures outdoor, but its not good for indoors.
Blurry pictures and slower autofocus than previous model

Summary: My previous camera in this line (a Sony DSC-W150) took fantastic, sharp indoor photos. Auto focus was quick, pictures were noise-free. When I lost it, I wanted another Sony Cybershot in the same series to replace it. I expected another great all-around pocket camera for taking pictures of pets, family and friends. I have been so disappointed--after taking an impossibly long time to autofocus, it takes grainy, blurry photos everytime.
Summary: If you like holding a camera still for what seems like 5 minutes, and getting a double flash, so everyone's eyes are closed, then this is the camera for you! Action shots, forget it, birds have migrated to Mexico by the time the picture is taken.
Had high hopes, but the picture quality is disappointing

Summary: Just take a look at the picture of the Eiffel Tower that I uploaded to the customer picture section. My wife used my 7 year old Olympus C340, a clunky dynosaur of a digital camera. I used the Sony that had just bought for this trip in a rush on the way to the airport. Yes, the gadgets are impressive. I like the panoramic pictures. The resolution is low (video resolution), but it still beats manual stitching.
Summary: Looks and feels nice, great zoom but, picture quality is bad.... 1 out of 3 pictures comes blurry...even if you move for a second after clicking you got a bad picture. Night time photos are worst. colors are changed in photos. outside photos come ok. Even with my old cyber shop i dont get blurry pics. I used sony cyber shot 7.2Mp for 3 years now and was better than this one.... i would say for $200 you can get better camera. I would not advise anyone to buy this camera.
