Summary: I absolutely love this camera, but when I got it there was a fault. The review button was not working. You can go on the In-Guide on the camera itself to display the photo you just took out, but that takes time, like four steps to get to that.
Summary: I bought the Sony just because I was tired of my old camera and wanted a change. It takes decent pictures. But the battery doesn't hold it's charge at all. I will not be buying a Sony next time.
Summary: The camera is good and it does the job but picture quality is not the greatest. I take a lot of automobile photos and they don't come as crisp as I would have liked. I use to have an older Cybershot and the picture quality was much better and more clearer then this. I'm still satisfy with it since the price was great and quality is good enough. Also when I take photos of people the picture comes out fuzzy sometime with no movement.
Summary: I researched all cameras in the $90 to $150 range and best choices were the one I bought (Sony 560. The camera seems sturdy enough but the viewfinder and what you end up with are dissimilar... I always end up with a lot of 'ceiling' in photos. Quality seems good, ease of use good, features are good. I used to have a Canon which I loved, this is a reasonable substitute, especially at $99. Forward to: A year or so later.....
Summary: Lots of other good reviews on here, I'm mainly writing to address one flaw: You cannot charge via USB. To charge the battery you must remove the memory card and battery, put the battery pack in the charger, and plug the charger into an AC outlet. Charging takes 3-4 hours or more. Also, if you leave it connected to the computer via the USB cable, it will drain the battery (even if the computer is off, apparently). Otherwise the camera is generally pretty good.
Summary: When I moved up from my old 4 MP Cybershot, I thought this would be a much better camera. This one takes too long to focus, so many shots are out of focus. The flash has a tendency to burn out the subject, seems to set exposure by the background, so faces are always washed out. Percentage-wise the old 4 Mp cam produced a greater percentage of usable photos.
Summary: I like the Sony camera however my old camera allowed me to use the sandisk to upload photos. Now I have to find the cable and hook it up to my computer each time I want to upload photos. So I dont use it as much.
