Don not buy the camera.

Summary: The camera is difficult to use, and unless you really spend time setting up the camera to get a great shot, and use a tripod, you will hate the results. The other reason I give it one star is the durability. You cannot drop this camera even once. If you do, the camera will break. Either the battery door will stop retaining the batteries, or the shock of the fall will cause the electronics to fail. Three feet to the pavement and that is all it takes.
Summary: I bought this camera after reading poor reviews on Amazon. I should have paid attention to the reviewers. When I use the flash, subjects become extremely washed out (shining) or else their skin looks waxy. I wish I had never bought it.
Summary: I Completely Hate this Camera. It takes decent pictures with an abundant amount of light, but when it comes to settings with lowlight, the pictures turn out to be completely horrible. The Main Problem that I have with this Camera is that it does a poor job at capturing pictures with people. At Night,the camera causes the appearance of people to be pasty and make their skin tone to be overly yellow and unnatural. Don't even consider buying this camera.
Summary: This camera takes horrible pictures! Pictures taken indoors come out with a yellowish tint. The camera makes people's faces oily and washed out. I have had to retake the same picture three times to get this camera to take a decent one. I do not recommend this camera to anyone. There are other cheap digital cameras that take decent pictures. This Sony is not one of them!
Summary: I am a former fan of sony cameras. I owned a previous generation sony cybershot with the Carl Zeiss lens and absolutely loved that camera. It was probably the most wonderful electronic device I've ever purchased. Sadly, I dropped it and broke it. :( So naturally I bought another sony cybershot, only this time I was a little short on cash and decided to buy the more economic model with the sony lens.
Summary: Don't buy this camera if you want to capture important once in a lifetime moments. This camera is a waste of time and money. I met Dr. Ben Carson and went up to take a photo with him and his wife there was a long line (as you can imagine) and I had a chance to get only one shot and it was AWFUL! All of us looked yellowy-orange, our faces were washed out from the flash and the remainder of the picture was dark even though the room we were in was well lit.
Summary: Soooo disappointed!! I always bought sony, not even think about it, the only problem that i has was loosing it or drop it. But this camera has the worst picture quality that i ever saw!! How Sony could do this to their loyal customers?? I cant returned because its beeing more than 5 months, and i didnt use that much at this time, but now that im using every day really sucks.. i cant believe it, its really a BAD BAD BAD CAMERA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: This thing take's terrible photos! They are blurry and sometimes make subjects look oily. Indoors the photos come out with a yellow tint or too dark. Outside the photos were more acceptable, but my old sony 4.1 MP does a better job!!! I HATE this thing, I am back to using my old camera and this one is going back to the store!
Summary: I would never recommend this camera to anyone! It is not worth even $10. I purchased 2 for Christmas gifts. One was defective at the get go and returned for a full refund. The second has been in use for the past 6 weeks. My duaghter went to have the first pictures developed, and the quality is the worst I have ever seen.
