Excerpt: Bought this camera for a trip to NYC that has not yet taken place. Still learning all of the great features and functions. The startup guide that comes with the camera has only the most basic information but the online users guide available at Sony is chocked full of great details.
Pros: Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Taken on 1 trip so far, great low light photos w/o flash. Small enough to fit in pocket and has good zoom. Only con so far I have noticed is latch on battery/sd card door can come open accidentally. Good battery life.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Summary: I like the picture quality, but am not crazy about the flimsy flash that pops up. I fully expect it to break, and don't like that I have to remember to press the flash button if I need flash. I like auto-flash, which I have had on every camera I have ever owned since the 90s.
Summary: So far I've jus taken a few trial shots and everything with the camera looks great so far! The only issues I'm having so far is that the screen protectors are low quality, I'll be buying better very quickly.
Summary: Just 18 months ago, 30X (truly small and) compact point and shoots were not even available. Now in 2014 this category has a number of contenders. With respect to reviewers saying "DLSR quality" for this category (it always seems to be a headline in some reviews--no matter what model), it is not...
