Summary: We bought the camera instead of buying a childs camera. Childrens cameras get bad reviews. We set the camera up for point and shoot for a five year old. Downloading isn't a problem either. It is too early for Photoshop.
Excerpt: The attractive, metal W120 is available in black, silver, blue, and pink versions. Curiously, the step-up W130 only comes in silver, black, and pink. The inch-thick camera weighs just 5.4 ounces with battery and Memory Stick Duo card, and slips easily into most pockets. On the backside of the camera, a 2.5-inch LCD leaves room for a small optical viewfinder, a mode dial, and a handful of buttons.
Excerpt: I had bought the Sony Cybershot digital camera in March of 2008. This is now May of 2009 and the darn thing doesn't work anymore. Wouldn't you know it, just shortly after the warranty expired! I have loved this camera from day one. It was a little hard to get used to with all of the extra things that are on it, but now that its broke i will never find out what else i could have done with this camera. I did try the smile capture on it. I do not believe that it worked.
works great for the typical user, but not fantastic.

Excerpt: As the first digital camera that I have owned, I'm quite happy with my Sony Cyber Shot. It takes beautiful pictures, especially outside in bright sunlight. It has smile recognition, which is great fun, even if not totally helpful or useful. (it is a meter that goes up when your smile gets bigger, and takes the picture automatically only when your smile is big enough.
Excerpt: This camera started off very well when I got it about two years ago, but now it's having some problems starting up and writing/processing pictures. I don't know if it's because of heat/humidity, but I've never dropped the phone before. I have had it in my backpack and maybe hit it against something gently, but that's about it! As time went on, it has taken longer and longer to start up.
Excerpt: This is the first digital camera I've been given as a gift that is actually decent in quality. Assuming that it was purchased at a very cheap price, since that's typical of my parents, I was really surprised at the qualities of the pictures. Now I'm not saying it's any where near the best cameras, but if you're looking for a good cheap camera, this one will definitely do.
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.
