Not impressed.

Jesse, Amazon
17 July 2013
  • 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. We were hoping we wouldn't have to take the plunge into the SLR market but it looks like we will.

It's a nasty camera after 3 years!!

Michelle Gregory, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • 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. It's fine the first year then it kind of gets... hard to use and hard to put up with. I have dropped it 10 times and it's probably one of the reasons she doesn't work well.

Worst camera I ever had

Praky, Amazon
20 December 2011
  • 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. It unevenly puts flash light on the target. 3) Indoor pictures taken is wrost ever. 4) Movie quality is ok and somewhat close to my 3.0MP camera.

Missed out

  • 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.

Terrible camera

Amazon Customer "Charlie", Amazon
18 November 2011
  • 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. They look good on the LCD screen but when you bring them up on a computer you will see that they are all soft. My telephone takes better photos than this dedicated camera.

Defect with lens

Alex and Sarah, Amazon
10 November 2011
  • 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 out much LARGER in size than the center (like your head)....so it looks like your hand is larger than your head right next to it.
