Summary: We'very been using the camera for 3 weeks. We gave up and bought a Nikon. This Sony is okay as long as you're taking pictures inside. It's pretty muchard useless for pictures outside because you can't see the screen.
Summary: I was skeptical about this camera due to some comments about the low light difficulty. I am very happy with the purchase and have taken some excellent family portraits and indoor shots. I believe this was an excellent value and love the pictures I am getting.
Out of luck with this vendor if you have a warranty issue

Summary: Very disappointed with the POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM THIS VENDOR. Camera was purchased as a gift. After 2 months of use, it displayed an error message to 'insert memory card' after the memory card is replaced (after downloading images).
Summary: I bought this camera on the recommendation of a friend who has the camera's predecessor. He gets terrific results in low light. This particular camera...not as much. Defocus does not work particularly well unless you're right on top of your subject.
The camera itself is great. The major problem is trying to use it ...

Summary: The camera itself is great. The major problem is trying to use it in direct sunlight, it's almost if not entirely impossible. Even at max brightness, the screen is virtually useless. Why don't camera manufacturer's offer a view finder any more?
Summary: Great purchase so far. Lots of nice features on Camera.. Be aware however that the Carrying case that comes with the Bundle is very small ie; the camera will not fit into it. Also the memory Card that Comes is a 32 not a 64 as shown in the ads.
Summary: For some reason this is a difficult camera to use and we haven't been successful with our photos. Nowhere near as good as our Panasonic Lumix or Nikon. Additionally many of the accessories don't fit this camera - the case is too small, etc.
Excerpt: If photo quality, zoom range, excellent construction and small size are of greatest importance, this is the camera you should buy. Just be aware that you will not be taking multiple pictures if you happen to see Elvis again.
Pros: The photo quality is among the best I've seen for this size of sensor, and the zoom range is incredibly high for this size of camera. It also seems to be a very well constructed, solid little camera.
Cons: But, it is s-l--o----w. It takes about 2 to 3 seconds between shots, even without the flash.
