Summary: I never really liked the camera that much. Bought it at Costco where I was advised it had a great lens. Some pic quality was excellent but to me it seemed inconsistent. Admittedly I am a novice.
Summary: I needed to replace my camera and thought that a nice point and shoot would fit my needs. WRONG!!! After reading the reviews I purchased this camera. The first time I used it was on a trip to Las Vegas. The flash is HORRIBLE!!!! It makes everyone look yellow and blurry.
Summary: I'm not a camera guru, so I didn't think very hard about picture quality when buying this camera. I figured in this day and age no matter what camera you get it's going to take reasonable pictures. That was a false assumption on my part.
Summary: This camera had everything i wanted, slim pocket-sized, sleek look, all the right features & specs. One BIG problem though - it consistently takes pictures of horrible quality - blurry, out of focus, bad colors, terrible in low light. No matter what I tried; changing the settings, ISO, etc...
Terrible picture quality! Everything has a yellow tint to it

Summary: I see on here that there are good reviews and bad reviews for this camera, which I can actually understand. I didn't notice any problems at first. Sometimes, the camera takes amazing, clear pictures. However, other times, the pictures come out horrible!
Summary: So after much time spent looking at reviews and all different kinds of sony cameras, I decided to get the sony w180 camera. I ignored all the posts about the picture quality and design of the camera because so many people said the pictures were fine.
Summary: This one doesn't have a Carl Zeiss lenz, and it shows in the picture quality. Also, max resolution for video is 320, not 640 like the other ones I have used. (I have used 5 others) It's not bad for the price, but I wouldn't get another one.
Summary: This camera looks very very good, is solid, well built and it is a Sony. I bought it because of those factors. But - the quality of the pictures is horrible, even compared to cameras in the same $100 price range. Photos made with flash are often overexposed or blurry or grainy.
