Excerpt: This camera is sluggish, slow to respond, doesn't focus very well, and you constantly miss the shot you want to take because it takes so long to take the picture, whether the flash is on or off, whether AI is on or off, you will likely miss the shot if the subject is moving. The panorama mode is "neat" but when the rest of the camera isn't worth using, is it worth it?
Summary: Very disappointing! This camera takes too long to take a picture. It has a long lag time. This is extremely frustrating when trying to take a picture of my 20 month old who can't really stay still for that long. I'm definitely returning this camera for another!
Pros: Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Nice panorama function
Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor Image Stabilization, Short Battery Life, Too Large / Bulky
Excerpt: This camera has Sony lens. Never buy sony camera with Sony Lens. The picture quality is as bad as 3.1 mpx camera. I have baught 3 or 4 sony cameras but this is the worst of them and i think it is because of 'Sony' lens. All other camera what i baught from them are car zeiss lens. I strongly recommend not to buy this camera. Problems: Picture quality is poor and there is no option to keep flash always on.
Summary: I'm sorry I bought it, the panoramic mode is not up to scratch either, with the photos all coming out very pale, having to adjust the ISO all the time. All other photos have a out of focus look to them. Also have not recieved a reply email from Sony after contacting them with my concerns, not very good for after sales service. I wish I had also read these reviews before I bought it.
Pros: Price was good so is the size
Cons: Photos are not very clear and crisp, seem to have a blured look to them
Summary: The jury is out as to whether I bought a lemon but mine refuses to clearly focus on long distance landscapes if I have some zoom kicked in - worse, you can't really pick it until you see the image on a big monitor - looks okay in the 3 inch LCD. No, I wasn't in landscape mode - if the thing can't take a photo of a rock 2km away in intelligent auto I don't need it. The dealer I bought it off has a 14 day refund/exchange deal so he's getting it back.
Excerpt: "...to my review of the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W370. I start with how I ended up buying this camera before going into more detail. OK it was a Wednesday afternoon and I had just returned from a day at work. I collected my letters that had been left for me and discovered my Tesco clubcard statement. I had £6 in vouchers which I could use towards anything in store. Along with that I had a booklet with some other offers such as 1,000 extra points when buying ...
Pros: 3 Inch LCD Screen, Battery Life, Level of Features
Cons: Image quality, shutter lag, no manual macro mode, reliability
