Summary: Love the camera!!! I had this same camera 4 yrs ago and loved the clarity of the pictures! Bought another sony camera and used it for 2 yrs hated it...then I went back to my old love. I am NOT HAPPY with the fact that this came with a Euro style charger... The description said it MAY come with one..
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 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!
Summary: I originally bought this camera 4 years ago for my wife, who needed a point and shoot camera to have a chance of taking at least one great picture. Well, while giving her instructions, I discovered several things about the DSC-W290 that made me want to use it as well. I have taken over 500 shots with it and all have turned out just fine. Even the videos I shot of the rising creek in our back yard in the pouring rain turned out great.
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.
