Summary: I purchased this for myself and even after all these years the camera works great. The battery does drain in a day but I have traveled and used this since 2007 and I love the fact that it still works as a back up camera.
Summary: I purchased this camera a while back. It worked just fine for a couple of years and then randomly stopped working. I never took it in to get fixed. Overall its a good camera for those who take basic pics. Fast shipping and delivery.
Summary: This little camera is the first one I owned that was small and easy to carry and use. I have taken some great nature shots with the macro lens. When my first one was damaged by sand on the beach, I ordered this one to replace it because I love the macro shots that it takes, and I already am familiar with how to use it and load the photos onto my computer.
Nice compact digital camera; longer lens would be nice

Summary: This is my 4th Sony Cybershot digital camera. I bought this one as a replacement for the same model which was stolen. Great deal when bought used. LIKES: 7.2 megapixels is more than enough for the casual photographer. Records audio with video up to 640x480. Simple layout makes it easy to make adjustments. Fully charged Li-Ion battery lasts a long time! DISLIKES: No pre-set for action shots. Flash takes a bit longer to charge than I like.
Summary: This was a pretty good buy. I got it for my wife. The only negative is that the flash always does a burst that disorients people, babies and animals. So you usually have to take multiples to get people to look normal. Excelent picture quality and ease of use.
Summary: I've had this camera for a few days, I can say that I'm really satisfied with the pictures taken. I've had to play around with the settings to get the right shots indoors. Outdoors and Macro shots are great, crystal clear shots. My last camera was the bulkier Canon s450 5mp, and I really like this camera better with the exception that I had more manual controls on my canon.
A very good choice for lots of people - easy to carry, easy to use

Summary: The Sony W55 is the followup to the successful and popular W50. It's a very good compact camera, easy to carry and easy to use, and reasonably priced - so most people will be happy with it. Not much has changed from the W50, which in this case is a good thing! One change is that the W55 is a 7 MP camera, rather than the W50's 6MP. Honestly, that's not a big plus, as they haven't made the sensor that catches the light any larger.
