Summary: I bought this camera because the details given by the seller is that it was "like new". When i finally received the camera the time limit to set a claim with the seller had passed. The camera keeps vibrating and doesn't let me take clear, focused pictures. Probably I'll need to take it to somebody that fixes digital cameras and hopefully I'll be able to take nice pictures. Buyers buy new things, don't take chances with used items.
Sony are recalling some cameras because they vibrate so you can't take a picture but not this one despite a clear design fault

Summary: This is a neat, portable cute camera with a touchscreen system that is pretty easy to use though could probably be more intuitive with less key strokes. It's great outdoors, a little orangey indoors, but really not bad for a point and shoot. But I'd never buy a sony camera again, because of the problem of the camera vibrating like a cellphone (and therefore blurring any picture taken) when opened.
have YET to receive this item, almost 5 MONTHS LATER.

Summary: I paid for this item as well as an express international shipping on APRIL 2nd, 2010. I HAVE YET TO RECEIVE THIS ORDER. the communication with this seller has been very poor and included excuses or reasons that it has been lost, etc (BOTH times). To say I am unhappy, is an understatement. The quality of customer service is beyond poor and clearly unacceptable. Especially to ask the customer, if I am "up waiting for a 3rd package"...seriously? give me a break.
Summary: I purachased this Item for gift purpose, but I recieved the item in very bad condition(outer box fully damaged and finger prints on screen). My friend is saying that picture and video quality is also not that much good compared to 3.0 MP Camera(she sent me those photos and videos, those are too worst quality)... So she is not satisfied with the camera..so am also not satisfied with the product that you sent to me.
Touchscreen is not enough to mask bad image quality

Summary: I've owned a sony p-200 point and shoot digicam before this and that camera was amazing. So I did not hesitate to buy the T70, but I should have. From the get go when I loaded my first images, at 100% scale on Adobe Photoshop I saw all the grain and imperfection this camera's image qualities host. Sure the touch screen interface is a great conversation starter and is impressive, but for me I take photo's semi-seriously. The lack of a manual setting mode is frustrating.
Summary: The picture quality is bad. If you are shopping for a camera and you want someone's suggestion about this camera, I would suggest don't buy it. The picture is grainy, the red color and its hues somehow are pronounced or something happens and the picture is pretty bad. Taking these two problems into consideration, you could add any and all features and you still don't get even half your money's worth.
Summary: I bought this camera for my wife and as soon as we downloaded the first batch of pictures, i knew that this camera was going back to the store. i believe the problem lies with the tiny lens and the camera is forced to bump up the ISO level to accommodate for the lack of light entering the camera. this results in a total washout of any detail in the picture. so you end up capturing 8 MP of smear. to be fair, it took good pictures outdoors or with very high light levels.
Summary: This camera failed to turn on just after 11 months of use. It was posted off to Sony (post warranty period) in the UK who wanted to charge a flat fee of approx £120 BEFORE an engineer even looked at it after which the cost may have been higher. My recommendation is to not buy this camera or other Sony camera products as from personal experience, some models seem to undergo unreliability issues plus exoberant fees to repair.
