Summary: The quality of the camera is fine, the features are nice, and there's a lot of tweaking ability. But we can not get good pics of our boys in the house. I know that maybe asking a lot, but that's the truth.
Summary: I got this camera a few years ago and sometimes works and sometimes freezes, doesn't turn on, lens don't close all the way, etc. It's very frustrating!! It makes a scratchy or humming noise when recording and makes a chirping/humming noise when I am about to record.
Summary: This is my third camera. I had sony cybershot 3.0 megapixel and Canon powershot 12MP camera before. Sony DSC-W560 does not come close to my previous cameras. 1) The picture is not crisp even though it's a 14MP camera. I can see the gray dots in the pictures. 2) Camera flash is really bad.
Summary: Bought this as a Christmas present, so not used as yet. Cost was $99.00 from amazon. The day I got it, Best Buy had it on sale for $89.00 Not worth the hassle to rewrap and send back. First time I know of that amazon didn't meet or beat the local shops. Check around before buying.
Summary: It's not a bad camera. Right out of the box it felt cheep and plasticky (body is, in fact, plastic). This is a concern because it's to replace the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290 (solid build, metal body) my naughty toddler had buried in the sand.
Summary: I bought this camera because I was so happy with a previous cyber=shot that took great photos. I played with it in a store and it seemed good. I read many good reviews also. However, in practice, it takes terrible photos.
Summary: Unfortunately we got this camera which we absolutely LOVED...except there is a lens defect apparently in every camera by this model...called PINCUSHION DISTORTION. If you're standing off to the side of the picture and lets say you put your hand up to wave, everything around the edges of the pic turn...
Summary: When I bought this camera, I was excited by the low price for what was a solid focal length/optical zoom bounds choices (the 35mm film equivalent is 30mm-110mm which takes you right from the edge of wide angle to the early early beginnings of telephoto.
