Excerpt: The Sony Cybershot W50 is a pretty good basic camera. I purchsed it for apporximately $250. It easy to use, comes with simple, easy to understand instructions. It is slim and fits easily into a pocketbook or pocket. I've had it for about two years and have dropped it on countless occaisions. It is still in perfect working condition. The settings are pretty easy to use. The one problem that I have had with this camera is taking pictures in low light.
Excerpt: I was in desperate need of a good digital camera. We bought it in 2005 (I think) for around $300.00. It seemed like a high price, but I was willing to pay for quality, especially for a sony product. We really haven't had any problems with it yet and it's 2010. It seems like the quality of pictures has gone down a little bit, but it has been 5 years. There are several options for picture taking, video, ISO, night time, snowy, portrait, etc.
Excerpt: Although this isn't the most expensive, flashiest camera out there, it's great for a moderate point-and-shoot camera. I especially love the combines 6 mega-pixels, lots of customizable settings, preset features, lithium-ion battery, and more into one affordable package. My first one was stolen, and I went out right away and bought another one!
good in daylight horrible at night or dark lighting

Excerpt: The Sony digital camera takes good daylight/natural light pictures, but once I try to take a picture at night or in dark light or low lighting the flash will over compensate and make the picture completely black, white or random red tones. It's horrible and a waste of money.and I have tried fixing the white light and the light absorbtion and it doesn't help.
Excerpt: This camera has great zoom and plenty of storage for my casual picture taking style. I upload often so I've never come close to the limit it has. It is lightweight and easy to slip in a jacket pocket or even larger jeans pockets when you are out. The screen is of decent size to view pictures as well. The biggest issue I have with my camera is that the dial to change settings is easily bumped and changed so I find myself in nighttime mode on accident.
