Meh. Lots of better options out there

Excerpt: I got this as a "loaner" after I lost my own camera. I was used to using Canon cameras, and this one just didnt cut it. it lacks a video mode (either that, or it was way too difficult to figure out where and how to find the video option). It is sleek and thin, but thats about it. It does not have a lens thing that comes out to zoom, which makes me feel the zoom and pictures will not be as good as a camera that does have one.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my previous Sony DSC-W1, which in my opinion took really great pics, but after a few years the pics the camera took was 70% of the time blurry, and the flash was having some problems so i thought it was time fore me to upgrade. What really attracted me to the Sony DSC-T100 was the: 1) Compact size 2) Huge screen, 3) Camera body 4) Slide down to turn on the camera And thats where it ends.
Summary: I have had this camera for over a year and at first I though it was me taking a blured picture occasionally. It was not, the camera for no apparent reason will blurr 1 out of 10 pictures. If the flash is on the percent is better but I still do not recommend this camera.
Summary: I watched the reviews for this camera, and picked it up since it was so well reviewed. While it was working, it was a great point-and-click camera that we used regularly for travel and real estate work. However, just recently, about 8 months after we bought it, the camera just stopped working. After sending it in to Sony, they claimed it was corrosion damage and not covered by warranty.
Awesome features but pointless if pictures are poor

Summary: I did a lot of research on a good camera and every time I looked at this I heard nothing but great things. So when I ordered it I had super high hopes, I feel disappointed. I got the camera a couple days ago and first first impression was wow, look at all the features it had, I was very impressed with those, it had all the stuff I wouldn't expect in such a small camera, and it was sleek with it's fold up lens cover.
Summary: I have had many Sony digital cameras over the years, and I was very excited to get my hands on this one. Its compact design looks great, its big bright display on the back is excellent, and it even takes great movies. However, this is a *camera* so what ultimately matters are its photos, and here it really disappoints. If all of your photos are outdoors on bright sunny days, then you'll be happy.
Summary: I bought this camera as an upgrade to my Sony DSC-T30, but much to my dismay, it really isn't any better. Sure the T100 has 5X zoom, has face detection (which is more of a gimmick BTW---and doesn't work half the time), and has 1 more megapixel than my T30---which really doesn't matter much. The BIG problem with these cameras are the critical indoor shots....it's still terrible...I see no improvement in the T100 over my T30...
Summary: If you're not picky about your images and just want a light-weight, stylish camera, the DSC-T100 is fine. I just upgraded to it from a DSC-W1, which I'd had for years. I was really happy with my old one and thought the update sounded wonderful, but I think my old camera took better shots. With the DSC-T100, I get a lot of noise in every picture, I get chromatic aberrations around even mild highlights and the pictures also have a lot of "lens bend" to them.
