Summary: The Camera is good but arrived with a Europeon charger which will not work here in the US. It was also missing a memory card. We did some scrambling to find parts to adjust to make it work. ...not pleased.
Summary: When I first received my Cybershot, I was so excited because I had previously owned the same model before it had been stolen and knew that it took quality pictures. Now, don't get me wrong, the camera still took quality pictures, however the functionality of the camera was a little diminished (after...
Summary: You will not find a cooler looking and feeling camera anywhere, but alas, the following two issues were deal breakers for me and I opted to return the camera and by a Panasoci Lumic DMC-ZR1 instead. Sony issues: 1) NO ZOOM ABILITY in video mode. 2) Very soft photos - inconsistent photo quality.
Summary: This camera does take great pictures. These days the cameras are very easy to operate with all of the auto settings and advanced face detection and scene recognition - it's hard to mess up a shot. This camera is no exception and makes the user feel like a pro when taking pictures.
Pretty good camera but not for cold or hot weather

Summary: I've had this camera for 4 months now and have taken it on two overseas trips. I've probably taken 900 pictures with it. It's an easy to use small camera that takes great shots when the lighting is good.
Summary: I bought the camera because of a relatively positive review on CNET. Fairly disappointed with it because of grainy images. Another problem was that the lenses didn't want to come out. I fixed it by taking it out manually (meaning with my fingers). Since then haven't had the problem.
Summary: The camera is pretty, but does have a bit of short comings. The camera feels it was created for casual to non-important photos. During low or indoor lighting there is a lot of noise in the image. It's auto focus feature also struggles a lot.
