Summary: Frist I would like to start off with I should have bought one of these Sony Cyber - Shot long time ago. Sony has know to be the top of all camers for some time now. About 3 weeks ago I seen though E-bay a Sony camera,So a bought it. Unknowing just what I readly had. I took it in and had it repromgram in to fix my needs,That when the good news came out about the camera. I had features on there that I may never ever used,But if and when I do,I have it all & some.
Summary: This camera is great to travel for different events. My fiance owned one previously to me buying this one used for my teenage daughter. For example, I have a powershot camera and when taking the same picture from my camera and my fiances camera the same shot comes out great from my end and completely blurry from his end from time to time. Like I said this camera is great if you just want a basic camera for taking pictures.
Summary: Not the newest model on the market but was perfect for a teenage to take with her. I won't have to worry about her losing it and being out a lot of $. I bought this used and she and I both are very happy with it.
Summary: I have had this camera for about three years now and overall I have really enjoyed it. It's very simple to use and my pictures have turned out great. The only problem I have with it is the delay time after you press the button. It's excellent for still shots, but not so great if you take lot's of action shots like I do. But for the most part, I enjoyed my Sony cyber-shot.
