Summary: For the price, the product is OK. I bought the camera once prior to this (not from Amazon) and it lasted about a year each time. I would be hesitant to recommend this camera to a friend. It did work really well for a few months, but if you are looking for long term, I would look into other options.
Excerpt: Poor Night portrait and night shots. Poor Flash. The images are noisy when shot taken in low light. Macro mode is not so strong. Good battery life. Easy for operations and menu selection. Smile shutter is a feature which is of no use, practically. Poor Image stabilization.
Summary: Purchased from a discount store via Amazon. Delivery was timely. When the box was opened, it looked like it had been opened before, although everything was there. A short while after, I noticed a stuck pixel on the display. I guess that was why it was discounted.
Summary: it takes good pics if you take care of pre hold shot button otherwise some pics get blur. exelent for sun pics but not good resolution with zoom. smile shoter is nice but not always case good and memory stick good.
Summary: I've always purchased Sony digital cameras until earlier this year when I purchased my first d-SLR. Due to the SLR's bulky size, I wanted another camera to carry at all times in my purse. I purchased this camera with high hopes for great pictures and ease of use. The ease of use is awesome.
Summary: I got this for $109, and based on that price, this camera is a wonderful bargain. At the MSRP price of $179, I'd much rather go with a Canon for a few dollars more. Pros: Small size (perfect for pocket), huge display, solid construction.
