Bought it before and I'd buy it again. Five stars.

Summary: This is an amazing little camera! I also own the previous version, the WX50, and they are very similar. Both take great photos in all different settings. I usually use mine to photograph my kids and when we travel. Sony makes an awesome product and I am very happy. Buy this as a back up to your dslr. It doesn't have all those capabilities, but it isn't meant to. It allows you to take great pictures on the go without having to carry the bulky camera bag and lenses.
Summary: I am a lover of sony point and shoot cameras, so when my eight year old asked for one, I referred back to sony. Choose pink because it is her favorite color, and it is simple enough for her to use and care for, and cheap enough that I don't have to watch over her like a hawk when she uses it. Good buy. Vibrant color.
The camera is mostly great, but this model tends to forget the date

Summary: The camera is mostly great, but this model tends to forget the date, time, region, and language settings if you remove the battery. It held that information for the first month with no problems, then it could not retain that information between battery changes after the first month. I returned the first one for this problem, and now the new one is having the same problem. I'm keeping this one and just accepting that it has this memory issue.
Summary: I have a high-end Canon EOS. I bought this one to simply take with me outside for quick clicks. I ended up using this a lot more than the Canon. it is great outdoors and the flash does a good job indoors. Unlike Canons, you can charge the battery via the camera itself or via a dedicated charger. It also charges when connected to the PC. My only complaint is that I don't have spare USB cables.
Summary: I have the WX50 and bought this as another camera for webstore pics. Cant say enough about the quality of the pics and video......in such a small package. Smaller than my phone and I tote it around everywhere. I'd recommend the protection plan if you are hard on your stuff like me. There is no doubt I'll use it. Youtube videos look excellent and I'm just so impressed with where technology has progressed in such a short amount of time.
