Summary: I absolutely LOVE this camera. I know there's a new model after this but I just think this is such a great camera. It makes your scenario looks neat, it makes your skin looks good, it makes the whole picture much better than if taken with other cameras and it's still portable. It's basically an awesome, portable, easy to use, everyday camera.
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 have owned several digital cameras over the years, most of them in the $150 price range. They never took great pictures, only so-so ones. I would purchase a new one every couple of years hoping it would produce better pictures. They never did. When I decided to purchase a new camera this year because we are going to Disney, I recalled some great pictures taken by a Sony Cybershot camera someone had at work.
Summary: I am an armature photographer who's goal is to capture moments in my life as well as those around me. I hate using flash photography as I want to capture images/video the exact way that it originally appeared to me. For most occasions I use a Canon 20D with a Canon 1.8 50mm prime lens. This setup allows me to capture "moments" in low light, with no flash.
Picture Quality is Amazing but shot-to-shot is slow

Summary: The pictures are excellent. They are well exposed and colors are robust. It also does very well in low light, even without the flash. But it takes a good 3-5 seconds to process after each image on the highest megapixel settings in intelligent mode, which is very slow.
Summary: For those looking for a point and shoot without a whole lot of manual controls this is the camera for you. Although like others have mentioned it's not perfect. PROS Picture quality - this is what most point and shooters care about. Good looking pictures and this camera delivers Low light pictures - this camera takes great shots in low light Clearly explained picture modes - when you rotate the dial to change the picture setting, this camera explains very clearly what...
Summary: This camera is perfect for someone who wants high quality pictures, an easy to use camera, lots of shooting options, etc. I happen to love photography, but am a novice. I have never used a point and shoot camera that takes better pictures than this one! It gives you so many setting that are easy to find and it takes the guess work out of trying to figure out the right adjustment for a great shot! You will not be disappointed with this camera!
