Summary: I didn't want to buy a new model since it probably will be outdated in a few years. This refurbished model works great and my friend loves it. He always wanted this model and luckily I was able to purchase it without spending a fortune.
Summary: I'll make this brief, since this camera is two generations old (the WX-9 was succeeded by the WX-50; the WX-50 was succeeded by the WX-80). I purchased mine used for $40ish dollars after shipping. I also own a WX-50, which I purchased for $130ish several months ago. The WX-9 is every bit as good as the WX-50. The pictures come out very clear and detailed, the option to charge the battery in the camera is a great bonus, and the Mini-HDMI connector is useful to have.
Summary: First, this thing takes really good photos for such a small, convenient point-and-shoot camera. That's why it gets four stars. Well that, and it checks out ok on the big-ticket items (e.g. it's durable, looks nice, battery life is long, etc.). It loses a star because the menu system is pretty bad. It's annoying to change any photo settings, so you'll probably end up just finding one decent all-around setting and going with that.
Summary: I am pleased with this camera. I bought it so I'd have an easy camera to take along and not have to lug around my big camera. I am pleased with it so far. I'd have to say it's a waste to have 16.2 MP, you don't really need that many even if you do blow up your pictures. The quality of the videos are good, although the sound is not the best. It does not take the place of an actual camcorder, but to have for the spur of the moment, it does the job.
Summary: This camera shoots very good pictures and seems to be good in low light. The video is very good and looks fluid. The zoom works very good and the resolution of the screen is excellent. The screen picks up finger prints easily and need to be cleaned alot though. The camera shoots quickly and changing functions on the camera are easy and fast. There are a few things that are going to take some time to get use to.
Summary: Sony cyber shot 16.2 megapixels is a great little camera for the price. Pleased with the pics and its overall performance. The only downside is wheel(personal preference) and the very small on and off button (my husband's fingers are too big)
Summary: I really love my camera.I gave it a 4 stars only because the wheel is a little difficult to work with. I am still learning this camera there is more to it than just point and shoot. settings. I would buy another one.
