Summary: I made professional quality 24" x 18" prints from my old DSC-N1, but after 2 years of intense use, it got soaked in a huge storm in Panama and the LCD screen stopped working. The Carl Zeiss optics match the capabilities of the 10 megapixel CCD, so there is no blurring or distortion at the edges. The images are crisp for the entire field of the photo. I have the underwater accessories and much more memory, so I wanted an exact replacement.
Summary: I got this camera a year ago and I am still crazy about the great pictures it takes as well as all the little options. I LOVE the touch screen. It is easier to view pictures and if you push the zoom when you are reviewing your pictures, it will enlarge the picture and allow you to crop and save without changing your original picture. It has built in features like picture frames, added graphics, etc. I keep finding new features that enhance the pictures.
Summary: I like the following about this camera: Great photos, great videos, very clear touch screen, clear photos, battery last longer than others. i have no cons against this camera. i purchased this camera because looks nice and after i used the camera i discovered is just great camera, in my opinion one of the best from sony.
Summary: The camera does not work!!! Sometimes it will power up and sometimes it will not. I have contacted Sony, on-line, thye are supposed to send me instructions as to how to return it but the instructions do not come. What a hassle! I paid a big price and all I want is a camera that works I do not have time for the problems of getting it repaired.
Summary: The Cybershot takes fantastic pictures, even in low light. (I prefer natural light to flash photos, but the flash is there if you need it!) I love the big screen, and the slide show features. It comes with the cables you need to sync with a computer (it works great with iphoto on my iMac), and you can use the cable to show the slide show directly from the camera on a TV.
