Summary: Bought this camera years and years ago and it's still working. Takes nice point and shoot pictures, but does eat up batteries and storage space when taking movies. Decent resolution on images, audio not so great for the movies.
Summary: I've owned two of these cameras in two years. They take great pictures. There is however, a Serious Problem with Dust getting inside the Camera. This dust causes severe spots on the Images. The Only Recourse is to send to Sony for cleaning which can can cost about $150 or more.
Summary: Back in March, I bought this $400ish Sony digital camera. 6 weeks into it, it would not power on. I discovered this as my wife was in the hospital giving birth to our second child. Not a good time for a camera to break.
Summary: I've just purchased a Sony DSC-W5 and taken it out for it's first test run. The pictures I got were of a very high standard and it coped well in a range of conditions. However, when I got the camera back to my PC and tried to download the pictures I was left disappointed.
Summary: Perfect except sometimes I run into problems taking photos at night. While it can take beautiful atmospheric shots in the dark(see birthday candle mode) it looks like this setting will only work when there is a concentrated point of bright light in an absolutely dark room, but for taking photos...
Summary: Después de un corto período de excelentes resultados con mi máquina Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 se trabó el lente. Hice uso de la garantía por medio de la casa Ripley que me vendió la máquina y me la devolvieron funcionando. Al poco tiempo se volvió a trabar y nuevamente recurrí al servicio técnico.
