Good picture quality, too many moving parts!

Excerpt: I got my son this camera for his birthday, he was going to Florida with the youth from church. He was taking pictures at the beach and got sand stuck in the lens area. It will no longer take pictures and to get it fixed, well, just say that I could buy 2 camera for the same price... The lens will no longer zoom out, he can't even view the pics that he took on it. Total waste of money....do not use outside!
easy to use, disappointing zoom, and overpriced for features

Excerpt: relying on the brand name alone, i bought this camera online. sounded like the latest technology, and it didnt have that annoying lens that pops out when u zoom. unfortunately, the new zoom technology falls short as far as im concerned. it doesnt allow u to zoom in as close as cameras half the price. that was greatly disappointing since that was the main reason i wanted a digital camera. the picture quality is great, the screen is huge.
Excerpt: I wasn't entirely thrilled with this camera, so in a way I am glad I lost it--gives me an excuse to buy a new one, even though it was a bit of a blow to the bank account. I'm not convinced Sony has digital camera technology down pat, but I'm no expert. All I know is that the photos I took did not come out clear and crisp, like I thought they should have for a camera that cost nearly $400!
Excerpt: When I purchased this camera, it was very expensive. I'm a supporter of Sony's products so I was willing to pay extra. However, I do think there are more affordable options for people to choose from. I use this camera to take pictures for fun. I don't know much about photography, and I really only use the basic features. Some of the things I like about this camera: The 5x optical zoom is very useful and a major plus for me.
Summary: Even though I'd like to give this camera a 1 star right now, I have to base the review on the entire time I've had it. Got it in June of 2007 for a few weddings. Had a large Canon digital SLR, but wanted something sleek to put in purse. Was VERY HAPPY with this Sony Cybershot. Received multiple comments on how great my photos were coming out. Even recommended to a friend to purchase one for herself. Small, nice battery life, great photos. Loved it.
Summary: After using an HP945 camera I was disappointed in this Sony. It takes a long time to change settings, the zoom is not great and the pictures are not good compared to what I was able to get from the HP. If it didn't cost so much I would love to trade it in.
Summary: I am submitting my review because there are two aspects of this camera that other reviewers either don't mention or gloss over and which I consider to be fatal flaws that a buyer will have to live with and always make excuses for. One is the fact that it has a slow lens; the other is that there is no custom white balance.
Summary: I bought this camera 2 weeks ago and like it quite a bit for the following reasons: 1. size and styling 2. Fact you could look at HD images 3. Pretty good user reviews 3. Two levels of macros-macro and macro-macro. 4. Fact it was a Sony with a 5X Carl Zeiss lens. So I have sold it to a friend. Why? 1. Picture resolution just OK 2. So called intuitive???!!!! menus. 3. The more I thought about it the more P.O ed I got in terms of its cost.
Summary: I am not satisfied with this camera. I only rated this 2.5 because of the design and some of the features(video mode 30fps, slide show). Pictures are par, not the best. My HP photosmart R927 took sharper pics. Video mode is good when set to high, but recorded sound cuts off and distorts a little. I cant believe sony sells this thing for $400. This is more of a $200 or less camera.
Summary: bought both the T100 and the Cannon 750(sony for me, cannon for the gf). Mine(T100) is more expensive, the cord sucks, has very few features for shot control, the screen is really grainy, does not shoot movement well. Hers(750) takes a standard card and usb cable, has awesome in camera software, and was a $100 cheaper. If I had to do it again I would go with to cannons or maybe the nikon. It's not that this is a bad camera, I do like it, it's just the cannon is better.
