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..
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.
Summary: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290 12 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom and Super Steady Shot Image Stabilization (Blue) When I broke my last camera (also a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290) while I was on vacation, I replaced it with another Sony DSC-W290. I had the first one over a year before I stupidly stuffed it in the pocket of my cargo shorts and jumped on the wild and crazy Simpsons ride at Universal Studios, in Florida. As Bart says, "Eat my shorts...
Summary: My second Sony Cyber-shot; I liked the 1st so much that, after I dropped it for the last time, I stepped up to this newer model. So far, nothing but satisfaction for the quality of image, the hi-def video and clear sound. It's winner for all my basic media needs.
Summary: Got this camera for my daughter after reading a number of reviews and was very pleasantly surprised. I have had a number of digital cameras starting with the early generations to the digital SLR ones with the replaceable lenses and this matches or exceeds almost all of them (the DSLR is a little better on action shots). The video quality is so amazing that we have stopped using our video camera and use this almost exclusively.
