Summary: Very Nice camera, nothing like Sony whits its unique picture quality, this camera is just perfect for me the way I like the pictures, once you have the right setting everything will be just fine and now whit some new lenses ans filters that I just got here on ebay is just wonderfull. excellent quality and easy to use recomended product.
Summary: I LOVE this camera best pictures & videos the best camera for being user friendly and I have one that was not working properly after being dropped, and bought a different one. I needed to go back and find one of these.. the quality didn't come close to this camera.
Great bang for your buck, but prone to dust spots and it murders batteries.

Summary: This is one of the best point and shoot cameras overall when it comes down to it's value, size, and features. There is an actual Manual mode on this little bugger. The focusing on this camera is spot-on, and you will never have that issue, even at night. Just stay still and your shot will come out nicely without flash at night.
Summary: This is a excellent camera, I had one before, sadly, it broke, so I bought a new one, this is a sturdy camera, I love the video, sound, and 5mp pictures are great, you dont need a big $800.00 camera with 12mp photos, and all these different kinds of lenses for excellent photos, the 3X zoom is really good for those close up shots you would love to get, one of the things I dont like about it, you cant zoom in well recording, but thats no big deal, not alot of features, but...
Summary: Good camera I guess. Just not very good at understanding how to use it. I had to order the original instruction manual seperately and it referred me to a different manual that I don't have so I'm just guessing a lot and using a lot of batteries. Expensive batteries.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W5 5.1 Megapixel Digital Camera

Summary: I had the same camera several years ago and was stolen, I got another like camera and it now needs fixing which will cost much more than it is probably worth so I found one on ebay and bought it. I like the picture quality and I know how to use it so wanted to buy another. There are cameras with newer features but they are more costly so decided to go this route for now.
Summary: I was buying a replacement. It is just like the one I owned that the battery door broke. I use it for my business as a home inspector. I knew it would match up with my computer, TV, & I have 3 other memory cards that fit it. This camera does have a better battery door and latch then my old one. I didn't want to go through the process of learning how to use another brand. I love the pictures it takes.
Summary: This is my 3rd Cyber-shot DSC-W5. Why the 3rd you ask? 1st one went down a waterfall with my fiancé. She survived the camera did not. The 2nd one I spilt oil from a diffuser (the smelly sticks) and it ruined the battery compartment so it was shutting itself off all the time. So as stated I am hoping the third time is the charm!! I have had this camera for a total of about 5 years (all three) and it works great and is very easy to use.
