I didn't like the way Sony changed the buttons on the back ...

Emily Booth, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camera as a replacement for the W290 that I bought at Target 5 years ago at full price (around $240). My camera still took pictures but a hazy circle of white began to appear in the center of my photos. I took it to a local camera repair shop and he couldn't fix it. He told me to return it to Sony. Sony wanted to charge $91 for the repair. I purchased this replacement for $8 more. Why did I purchased the same model?

  • Summary: Does what it is advertized to do and is a great little work camera. Fits in a breast pocket and can get into tight spaces for documentation.

Great camera

Amy Lee, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: I have owned a previous Sony Cybershot, and I liked it so much that I wanted another when I lost my old one. This new Cybershot also takes great pictures (for a point at shoot camera). The only criticism that I have is that transitions of turning the camera on and off or viewing the picture and taking picture mode are a little slow. Also, the wheel to change the picture to movie mode is easily moved, so just taking the camera out of its case can change this selection.

  • Summary: This is a nice little camera. It's simple to use and takes much better pictures than my older sony. The only problem is that it comes with a charger for the United Kingdom.

  • Summary: The charger that came with the camera is for European use. Fortunately we had a charger that is 120/60 VAC use. If not for that it would have been 5 stars.

Sony camera

  • Summary: Really enjoy this camera. Easy to use and takes great pictures. Sometime the flash is a little too strong so often just shut it off. Red eye works well. Smile function is a bit superfluous, but whatever- entertaining to use.

Another great Cybershot

Hpu2000, Amazon
12 August 2010
  • Summary: I had a Cybershot DSC W150 that I dropped and broke. Bought this as a replacement and am very pleased. It is very easy to use and if you're mostly a "set it on automatic" kind of user, it is great. The only issue is darkness in low light, but this has been improved with this camera and I've found this to be an issue in almost any small point and shoot. Of course, just turning on some lights helps the situation ; ) I also love that the battery lasts so long on one charge.
