Nice outdoor, daylight pictures. Otherwise, hit or miss

DannyBoy, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera from a large retail chain about 3 years ago (yes, the model is that old). First thing I must say: The price here is ridiculous for this camera. Its not worth $388, or whatever they have it listed for. That said, onto the pros and cons: PROS - Takes EXCELLENT pictures in any type of daylight (even mostly cloudy skies), including beautiful sunrise and sunset pictures (so long as its not too far along).

Great camera, but manual is criminally bad & wrong

P. Smith "QueenBee", Amazon

  • Summary: Using the camera is pretty self-explanatory which is essential since the manual is stunningly bad. Sony couldn't be bothered to include all the essential information in one manual, instead it refers the new user to another 4-page guide included with the product (seems to be Sony's style, since the new Sony videocamera we bought also has more than one "manual"). Neither the manual nor the guide for this camera contain clear instructions or diagrams.

OK camera, but many detractors

  • Summary: Its a decent camera, but it falls short in too many important areas to be considered a good buy.
  • Pros: Great battery life, compact/light weight, quick shutter, nice LCD display, great outdoor day shots
  • Cons: No image stabilization, poor quality in low-lit situations, auto-focus is ticklish

Nice Camera, but not for photographing kids on the move!

Brian D. Kozola, Amazon
13 August 2006
  • Summary: This is a sleek, nice little camera that will fit in your pocket and take nice pictures. I returned mine within a couple of days, however, because of the painfully slow autofocus. In standard indoor type lighting, this camera takes quite a while to lock on focus and snap a picture. This is great for patient people or still life but does not work is you have small kids you want to photograph while playing!

quirky little camera

Bostonian "maverick", Amazon
19 May 2006
  • Summary: I bought this camera in April 06. It takes great photos, and I was impressed with its ease of use. However after 15 days of using the camera, the camera suddenly stopped recognizing my Sony PRO DUO memory stick (2GB). I got an error msg:- "please Reinsert the Memory Stick". After re-inserting the mem stick many times, I have given up. I know the memory stick is not damaged, since it is still usable (read/write) as valid memory on a third party card readers.

Not quite all I expected

Daddy Fix, Amazon
20 April 2006
  • Summary: I hate to break a string of 5-star reviews, but...I've had this camera for a week, having bought it based upon glowing reviews from other owners. I'm not quite there yet. There is no scene mode for sports, or any control of the shutter speed which would accomplish the same thing. To me, that's unforgivable on such an otherwise well thought out product. As a pocketable camera to carry when skiing and mountain biking, it's coming up short.

User Review

Diana Buckley, Cnet.co.uk
1 August 2006
  • Summary: Nice little camera (athough I have always had idiot-proof cameras) which I can manage, yet make commands on when a special shot is needed. Watch out for buying the right memory card and accessories. When I bought mine on Amazon, I was encouraged to buy the memory card and case to go with it. Both turned out be be the wrong fit and then Amazon refused to accept the unopened returns. BEWARE!
  • Pros: It's fairly idiot-proof, yet has some choices, which makes me feel like I'm competent!
  • Cons: The delay. Having to hold on still for so long after clicking the button for the shot to be taken.

Interessant mais pas à privilégier

  • Summary: Cet appareil photo est facilement manipulable. La fonction vidéo est évidemment un plus pour permettre d'immortaliser certaines actions. La batterie a une bonne tenue de charge (le mien a environ 2h) et c'est beaucoup plus économique que des piles . Les photos en extérieur ont un bon rendu final et la variété des modes est intéressantes .
  • Pros: pratique, facile d'utilisation, jolie photo en extérieur, bonne durée de vie de la batterie
  • Cons: photos souvent flou à l'intérieur et flash peu fonctionnel .
