Summary: no recomiendo esta camara ya que dura demasiado tiempo para tirar una foto, porque tiene que reconocer primero la cara de la persona y luego la sonriza. Tengo una bebe pequeña y la oportunidad de tomar fotos son unicas y con la lentitud de esta camara es imposible hacerlo.
Summary: I was looking for a point and shoot upgrade to my old DSC-W50 which I loved and took many, many great pictures with. I heard that this model was coming out soon so I waited about a month for it to go on sale. Most of Sony's other similar models before this one had been reviewed well so I thought, better zoom, HD video, 3.0 in screen, priced under $250, should be a "can't lose" situation. Well I was wrong.
Summary: I really had high hopes for this camera when I purchased it over a year ago. As a loyal Sony Fan, I owned a Sony DSC-W50 prior to this camera, and it was a great point-and-shoot for its time. I thought things could only get better when I brought the DSC-W370 home. On the outside, the camera features a glossy finish, and stylish silver accents. In addition to the three inch view screen on the rear, this camera looked very sophisticated, yet trendy.
Summary: I had purchased this camera to replace an older model Cybershot camera when I lost the cord to recharge the battery and it could no longer be replaced. I am dissappointed in the quality of the photos as compared to the older camera. I am hoping as I become more familiar with the camera the sharpness and quality will improve.
Summary: This camera takes very good pictures. Everything looks beautiful and amazing. Some of the colors on indoor shots are a little washed out, but that's not a huge deal. Sadly, the "video" feature leaves a lot to be desired. I've only taken two videos with it, but the sound was horribly distorted on both. I taped part of a baseball game and then a blues band that was playing across the street from the ball game. The sound should've been very easy to capture in both events.
Summary: Very short battery life. Sweep Panorama is a great feature. Took it to Europe and also took my Canon Power Shot. Not all places I stayed at had the capability of using an adapter (and using converter is not an option on the Sony camera)to charge battery. Pictures taken with both cameras were comparable in quality. However, I still have a lot to learn about the many features the Sony offers.
Summary: I broke my own rule when I bought this camera - I bought it on impulse without doing my usual research. I've had some great Sony cameras before and I was impressed when I saw the features of the DSC-W370. Just the improvements I was looking for, at a very reasonable price, so I pushed the button. The problem arose when I got it home, unpacked it and pushed another button - the shutter button.
Summary: Most things about this camera are good. Resolution, shutter speed (don't know why people complain about this. Can't say I've had more than 1-2 motion blurred pictures out of ~300 I've taken), high quality, HD view (16:9 picture taking. It basically cuts the top and bottom off and ends up using 11 MP, but considering most things are in 16:9, I find this extremely useful), and physically it's pretty light and small.
Excerpt: The camera has a lot of nice features, but it just simply did not take good photos consistently. About 1/3 of the photos are out of focus, over exposed, or underexposed. I'm disappointed. It's going back to the store. Problems: Poor picture quality.
