Summary: Very bad picture Quality.. I am not a pro, i just need some camera that i can take out from my pocket, take the picture and keep it back. and at the end of the day when i go back to my house, upload the pics and expect to relive every moment of it. But, this camera does not serve the purpose. The picture quality is bad. THis is my first Sony camera and i am sure that this vll be the last. I lost trust in sony.. THey are just expensive for no reason..
Summary: We've had this camera for three years. For the price I cannot complain about the photo quality and I drop lots of things and this has held up... However, the battery has to be replaced once a year and it costs $70. My parents also have this camera and the same problem. For a camera that I paid less than $200 for, this is not acceptable!
Summary: This was our 3rd digital camera purchase in the past 6 years. We were wowed by the neat touch screen, sleek size and Sony name. I wish we had stuck with a tried and true Canon. We enjoyed the camera for 3 months, but noticed the image quality wasn't always what we would expect or hope for. When you would view an image at 100% on a computer, it was EXTREEMLY grainy. Almost like looking through a thin tissue at times.
Summary: This camera is "cute" however, it is far more thicker than the previous generations. The picture quality is okay, not great and the smile detector sucks. It has taken blurry photos despite its anti-blur technology. I wish I had gone with a Cannon instead.
Summary: I really loved this camera at first it has some really cool features such as smile detection, touch screen, and some awesome slideshow features (that include downloading your personal music). But this was quickly overshadowed by the fact that when you take pictures with the flash many times you will get white spots on your pictures.
Summary: I want to love this camera, but just can't for the simple fact that indoor/lower light pictures just look terrible. This is for two reasons. One the camera bumps the ISO settings too high, causing noise. Two, this causes the noise filter to try to correct the problem, but it just winds up making everyone looked smeared. The face detection seems to work well, tracking up to 8 faces as long as they are looking at the camera directly.
Summary: This camera has some great features but it takes really bad pictures. I returned it a month after I got it. I got a canon powershot instead. I am very happy with my canon and happy I returned my Sony.
Summary: My wife was very excited to get this camera. It looks so cool and is so small. Unfortunately, the pics weren't that great. We currently have a 3.2 pixl camera that took better pictures. We ended up getting the Cannon. Very happy with the Cannon!!
Summary: I bought this camera for it's very low shutter lag. Just over a year later and the camera vibrates when turned on. It is unusable due to a fault in the lens system. If you look on line you will see reports of this but unlike other models, Sony do not recognise it as a flaw in the build/design so you'll have to pay to have it repaired if it is out of warranty. Given the cost of that you may as well buy another camera. I won't buy another Sony product.
