Summary: Love this little camera. It takes awesome pictures. Movies and Panoramics too. The evening shots are amazing. I am completely satisfied with the camera. The only thing I would want is more zoom. My last camera was double the zoom and I didn't realize how much I used it. I can crop pictures for the look with this one though. I would recommend getting extra batteries because using it for video sucks the power quickly. I got 2 back ups just in case. Works great.
Summary: I basically blew out my fuse because this camera comes with an outlet for 250 volts and an adapter. Well the voltage in the US is 120 NOT 250! This is so stupid. Horrible seller because this information is not at all indicated in the discription of the item, even SOny doesnt know how this happened. Why would you ship such an item to the US????
has returned 2 times with problem "turn the power off and on again"

Summary: Bought this during 11/2010. picture quality, ease of use are OK. But has this problem of "turn the power off and on again". I have to mail it back to Sony and sony did repair it and mailed back to me. Again after 2 months (this is too bad, in the midst of a vacation) gave exactly same problem. Mailed this again, not sure if they will repair again for free this time as it is more than 12 months now. But surprisingly how can it give exactly same problem EVEN after repair?
Summary: Negatives: -image stabilizer is a little weak for video, when you start to zoom in or out it causes the lens to jerk or twitch because of the slight play in the mechanism -despite the good lcd resolution it's a little difficult to tell if you are focusing properly -battery life is kind of short, and if you turn the dial to video mode the stabilizer runs full time even if you are not recording which helps drain the battery faster.
Summary: This is my second purchase of this camera. I have two daughters who love the quality of pictures that this camera takes. It is expensive but well worth the money. I also give high praise to the customer service that I received from Sony!!!! That means a great deal to me.
It takes excellent quality pictures with no photography skills needed

Summary: I opted for this rather than getting a WX9. This seems faster than the WX9 in terms of handling and operation. Everything else is almost the same. The image quality is not as good as my trusty Pentax K100D SLR but it is much nicer than the 12-Megapixel Nikon coolpix s70 its replacing. My 2 complaints are that the camera is too small for my hands and some of the buttons need to more raised.
Summary: I am SO disappointed in Sony! This is my 3rd attempt in the last two months with a Sony camera, 7th attempt with trying to find the best point and shoot. I love the interface and it takes great low light pictures, the only problem is they all look like they have a fishbowl effect! Each Sony camera we tried did the same thing but we just wanted to keep trying it with different models to see if it would change!
