Love my sony camera!
30 January 2013
Excerpt: Love that this camera is durable, small and powerful. I see people with the really intense cameras that are for professional use and I have found that with my camera I can still get those professional looking photos for 1/4 of the price that they paid! Love this buy and would recommend it for students and home use!
Excerpt: I got the Sony DSC W290 shortly before getting my iPhone and since the iPhone camera is sufficient for my day to day use, it doesn't see a lot of usage. However, picture quality is fine and the display is easy to figure out. If you like having a separate camera from your phone for special events, the Sony Digital Camera is not a bad buy. I think this is definitely geared at the casual photographer and not anyone with professional experience.
Excerpt: I bought this for around $89 and it's lasted about 2 years now. The quality is excellent and the durability is better than most other brands. My children will randomly snap photos multiple times and the camera is as good as new. No problems as of yet! If you want a cheap, durable camera, this is it!
Excerpt: This camera is spectacular! I didn't expect to like it but I really do! For the price, it's absolutely worth it. I find that the quality of my photos is excellent and I found the User Guide to be very helpful. I did not have a hard time using this camera and it focuses very well. I also like how many pictures I'm able to fit on this camera.
Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot W290 is an excellent camera not only for the experienced, but for novices as well. With its "Easy" function it automatically adjust your camera so your able to get that perfect shot, whatever the conditions. Point, hold and click your digital photo is captured in seconds. The retracting lense is great. When reviewing your photos, it automatically closes so that you're not obstructed from holding your camera safely.
Sony Digital Camera Is The Best Camera I Have Ever Owned.

Excerpt: I bought this camera to take photographs at my son's wedding, and I will tell you this camera is amazing. The photos came out so beautiful. I really like the video part of this camera. I love the fact I can look at the photos and watch the video's on my tv set. This camera is one of a kind.
Excerpt: I'm not a professional photographer so I need a camera that does the work for me. I know little about all the nuances. All I know is that this takes great photos, has a long battery life, and has never done me wrong. The thing that has most impressed me is the video - both sound and video.
Excerpt: The camera is great! The picture quality is stellar. It is easy to use too! Unlike most other cameras, the on board menu options give you a description of what every option does - taking the guess work out the equation. It has excellent optical zoom that is better than average for its size and it is far better than my previous Canon PowerShot A640. As an added feature, you can shoot movies in HD. This is the best point in shoot that I have ever owned.
Sony Cybershot W290 Rocks! If you know how to use it.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The SonyCybershot W290 is a great camera for someone who knows about photography and isn't scared to experiment with settings. The camera can take amazing pictures just about everywhere except indoors. If you are looking for a camera that can take pictures inside this is NOT your camera. The features are very easy to navigate with a handy scroll wheel, Video, Auto Picture, Pre-Determined Scene settings, and Manual mode.
Excerpt: I am not the best picture taker But with this camera I can do not wrong It has optical steady shot so if I shake while taking the picture I still get a great picture There is a Face Detection \ Smile Shutter Button on top that allows me to turn off and on when I want. When on it will look for the smiled which is great to have Wide-Angle Lens which is really nice to have Intelligent Scene Recognitions will pick out the best light for you and give you a great picture...
