Not as impressed

Tabatha, Amazon

  • Summary: I really expected improvement over my other Cybershot but feel I down graded in quality. This camera offers some more options my old one didn't but I've noticed that images don't focus like my old camera did. As I gave my sister my old one, this one will have to do for now.

  • Summary: I bought this as a gift and my girlfriend really enjoyed. She loves taking photos and this worked well and was fast and its small size easy to carry around. ITs not a professional camera by any means but it is good for casual photos.

Sony dscw170

Charlie A. Hill Jr., Amazon
9 July 2012
  • Summary: Camera came with no CD or inst book,but this was pointed out in description. The only problem I have with the camera is the On Off button won't respond when pressed sometimes. I wanted a camera with a optical viewfinder because they are hard to find in a point and shoot.

Not for everybody

Carlos de Palo Alto, Amazon
23 February 2012
  • Summary: This camera gets a bad rap because of focus problems, but its fine lens compensates for its shortcomings. I was very unhappy with my photos until I stopped using most of the automatic functions. I recently took the camera on a hike and took over 200 shots, of which 15 were out of focus (most at 5X).

  • Summary: I don't think you can go wrong with any low cost compact camera nowadays. It's just a matter of preference and maybe dedication to overcome the shortcomings you'll find in a particular model.
  • Pros: Good image qualtity, Great colors, Overall pretty responsive, quick auto focus, fairly quick shot to shot time., Solid built quality
  • Cons: Lack of manual controls/white balance, Slow and a bit confusing menu (but I got used to it quickly), Image stabilizer not on par with other camera brands, Barrel distortion which is noticeable in some images

I love this camera.

  • Summary: Its been two years since I bought this camera and even today it works so perfect that I do not feel the necessity in purchasing another one. The picture clarity is perfect and also the pictures taken in the dark also come out so nice. I love this camera.

Great quality photos, easy to use

Nicholas A. Young "biz mac guy", Amazon

  • Summary: We had always purchased Olympus digital cameras, and when our last Olympus failed to impress, we decided to try the Sony. It has been a great camera, takes excellent photos, and has given us no hassles.

black spots

Lissa List "proud progressive", Amazon
28 March 2010
  • Summary: I loved this camera until after the 2nd year of use I have black spots on my shots. Very poor longevity. I've seen other people with camera having the same problems. Not bad if you want black spots in all you pictures.
