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: Really like this camera, but a better LCD screen in bright light would be appreciated. Maybe they'll fix my other quibbles too in a future release. It's probably a dream for now, but would like a pocketable long zoom camera with a larger sensor.
Pros: Well built camera with lots of features and love having the 30x zoom as well as the exposure compensation wheel on top. Image stabilization is very good and takes great pics in low light. I like having a pop up flash I can control. Shot response time is pretty good. I got it at through Newegg at ...
Cons: Worst is the LCD screen in bright light which just washes out badly. WiFi doesn't work with my older Mac and could be better. The menus also offer lots of options, but are a bit hard to navigate. Also, no RAW files for those who want that.
Summary: Very nice camera that takes great pictures. I am still working on learning all of the features, so I cannot comment very much on the technical side of things. My only two complaints are that I wish there was an option to force the camera to use the flash and the placement of the movie recording...
Summary: Delivery was very quick, couldn't be better. So far the camera is doing very well (first couple days). I love the zoom, especially sitting in the nose bleed bleachers trying to capture a moment on the other side of the field.
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.
The Camera is a 5!!!! The package, not so much!!!!

Summary: The camera is fantastic! I went to Consumer Reports to find the best camera and wasn't surprised to see another Sony Cyber-shot near the top of the list. I have previously owned two other Sony Cyber-shots so the transition was easy. I used it on our recent vacation and loved its simplicity.
