Summary: camera is excellent and works well.. done pictures and video underwater in my pool and they look amazing. on the other hand the charger is a universal type charger and does not work correctly but still happy with the camera itself
Summary: I absolutely adore this camera. Since I do like it very much, I'll start with the Cons! -Paint is ~~easily~~ scratched. If you plan on getting this thing out at the beach be very careful about sand getting into the sliding front. I am OCD as hell and mine still managed a scratch when I took one second to not pay attention. -The battery life is TERRIBLE on video mode. I easily breeze through my 3 batteries with this. -It shoots double-photos ALL the time.
Summary: Very light and easy to use. The video quality is amazing but the software is cumbersome to figure out anything. I used it under water and it works great. I have never been a big fan of putting so many options on a camera that you don't really know which is the best setting. I would rather point and shoot for the best image. It's hard to rate a camera when a phone does so much in one package.
Summary: I am an old time film SLR junkie but needed a good camera for my wife who dislikes.... no make that HATE all the controls that you have to use with SLR/DSLR's. She want's a reliable, tough camera where all that has to be done is to compose the picture and press the button. We have more that 2000 pics with this camera and it absolutely delivers. It has not been underwater but has been soaked in rain while visiting Asia and Italy.
Summary: I really like Sony cyber-shots. I think I used to own the first one they came out with. I've tried other small camera brands like Canon and Nikon, but I prefer the quality and ease of the Sony types. I really love the panorama option. I miss some of the silly options that the other cyber-shots had, but they aren't very important. I could just make the effort to do some photo editing once the pictures are on my computer.
Summary: I needed a camera that was wateproof and easy to use for a sailing race across the North Pacific Ocean and this camera worked very well, albeit briefly. I found the camera easy to use even without glasses. The simple mode had large text and all the features I needed to quickly take pictures. Even being hit with constant waves, and being constantly wet for a week and a half in the pocket of my foul weather jacket, the camera never leaked.
Summary: I purchased this camera as an alternative to my $8000 DSLR when on vacation somewhere I didn't want to lug a lot of photography gear. There are plenty of reviews here with highly technical info, so I'll cover the basic pros and cons from my own experience. After owning it over a year I have a pretty good handle on what I do, and don't like. Pros *It's uber small, I can easily fit it in my pocket/purse/hand ect and it basically disappears.
